LTTP, but I just got the base game and backed the Frigost set on Kickstarter. I'm getting all the stretch goals, but I'm thinking of adding $10 for more cards. Should I go for a complete XXL set or Foils?

I have always thought of foil cards as very silly. I think the idea of foil cards here is pointless. The chromatic surface also breaks with the cartoony game theme.

No, go XXL. They're easier to read and looks much cooler.

Agreed. The XXL cards are more practical.

Also depending on how the foil is done it could make the cards to read depending on how the light falls on them.

For sure the XXL cards makes tracking wounds and stuff easier with the big cards to put them on.

I appreciate this info, too. I'm a new backer to the Kickstarter and the game.

IIRC, the foil cards are only foiled on the backside, not on the stat side. That said, I think XXL would be the better way to go.

I would go with the foils rather than the XXLs, personally. They're going to be easier to sleeve, will fit in most card binders (giving you a nice way to leaf through them and just appreciate the card art or check out their stats without having to sift through the cards in a pile or deal with the bulk of a massive box when you're hauling your stuff to a buddy's place or to the FLGS), will take up less space on the game table, the card text won't be obscured because only the art side is foiled, and much of the art is the sort that would "pop" quite nicely with any decent foiling process.

The XXLs by comparison just seem far less practical and far less interesting.
