Having just sleeved my main game of Robinson Crusoe I thought it would be a good idea to sleeve my cards from the expansion voyage of the beagle,to my horror I found that the cards have been cut slightly to big to fit the same sleeves of the base game,has anybody else had the same problem?

The expansion is released by Portal, which published the game before it was bought by Z-Man. Z-Man uses slightly smaller cards, as you've seen.

I cut the event cards from the expansion very slightly on the sides to fit them in the same sleeves. The other cards I haven't sleeved, but if you want to you can just buy bigger sleeves for them. They are not to be mixed with the cards from the original anyway.

I used a paper cutter to slightly trim the cards. This worked fine.

There were 20 event cards which get mixed in with the other event cards. On these, I used scissors to trim the corners to round on the trimmed edge. This did not take long.

Otherwise no differences from the Z-man print?

An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. So when life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means that it's going to launch you into something great.

This. This is what I am. This is who I am. Come hell or high water. If I deny it, I deny everything I've ever done... Everything I've ever fought for.

I used fantasy flight sleeves and sleeved my z-man base and portal expansion in the same sized sleeves. I was ultra careful though, too much force would have bent a card. No bends though. Put them under a stack of about 40 graphic novels/ collected editions and they are perfect.
