I have Kythis, the Gatekeeper which is released on 2010
and then I have Ethereal Huntress and miles, Golden Prodigy from the online store. And then, lately I just go some newest 2013-2014 promos from ebay such as Foul Replicant, N.I.N.E., Defender of Vigil, Disciple of Sadranis, Vault of Askara

But I noticed from 1st it was 63.5x89mm with shinning card back
Then 2nd category i mentioned (Huntress,Miles) was with 63x88.5mm
And then last I got from ebay for new promo was 62x87mm

What is up with all the card sizes?

Have anyone ever noticed that?

This was a whole "public outcry" thing. CotG was one size, but when RotF was released, they went with a slightly smaller sized card for better long term benefits and decided to stick with that from then on. However they didn't announce it to anyone, and those that bought the game figured it out the hard way. Those that tried it out at a convention couldn't tell since they were sleeved using the official sleeves. The card sizes were different which to some was unacceptable.

Stoneblade Entertainment (Gary Games back then) offered to sell the official card sleeves for... 25% discount IIRC? Those that don't believe in sleeving were upset/pissed that they had to spend more $$ on a problem that shouldn't have existed. Those that already sleeved using the official sleeves are upset/pissed that they can't get the same deal since they already bought their sleeves.

I'm surprised to hear there's now a 3rd card size wow?

Ya, I took a measurement with my CM ruler from Japan and measured it and was surprised to see that all 3 sizes are different
In fact, I put them all together, and they are all different, so definitely, there is a 3rd size

I'm investigating. Rest assured there is no third size.

Take one photo with all three cards stacked on each each other, that should make them pretty obvious.

(posted as OP was uploading photos)

I tried to do that, but because there were statics that card does not lay still on top of each other.

I will try later tonight once I get off work today.

Thanks

You can see that left corner all 3 sizes are different, I lined them up at the bottom and on the left

I just noticed that with the original shinning backed promo the lower right says promo
with the online store it is P with orange dot
With the promo i got from ebay, it's just a P in white ink on lower right of the card

I own only Ascension: Rise of Vigil and it's expansion Ascension: Darkness Unleashed. Both of these sets (which are the two newest) are not even the same size cut. It annoys me to no end.

Huh, so much for the implication by Gary Games/Stone Blade Entertainment that the cards from RotF and beyond wouldn't have such issues.
