I just ordered a copy of 1812: The Invasion of Canada and I was wondering if people recommended sleeving the cards? (For those who didn't sleeve, how are the cards holding up?)

The cards do not get shuffled all that often and Academy's cards are pretty good quality.

That said, mine are sleeved. Force of habit I guess.

I've played a couple dozen games with unsleeved cards. There is very minor wear, definitely not enough to know which card is which from the backside.

It's not a cheap game, there are not many cards... sleeve it to protect your investment and have fun playing the game for a long time to come.

I used the amazing Swan Panasia Sleeves, SWN-020. They fit amazingly well.
