Hi Matt,


There are 2 sizes of cards in The Captain Is Dead. Mini cards & Poker size cards. Both are standard sizes and you can get sleeves from MayDay or other manufacturers.

Mini cards are 1.75" x 2.5"
Poker cards are 2.5" x 3.5"

Here is a breakdown of the cards (includes stretch goals reached thus far)

14 role cards - poker
48 skill cards - mini
6 ship system cards - mini
5 ship upgrade cards - mini
14 battle plan cards - poker
24 yellow alert cards - poker
26 orange alert cards - poker
6 red alert cards - poker

So 84 poker cards and 59 mini cards. Hope that helps!

PS - we are $3200 away from our $40,000 stretch goal which will include new tools!

That's a very helpful list, and I've added the game to my card sleeves geeklist. Just for clarification, the smaller cards seem like they'll be too wide for Mini American (41x63mm) sleeves, and too short for Mini European (44x68mm) ones. Is there a specific sleeve that you'd recommend for them?

Huh. I can see why the mini cards are that size - exactly half the poker size. I wonder why manufacturers don't make sleeves that size.

I'm not sure either. It seems like it should be more common, since it's easier to make. The closest sleeves I can find are the Mini Euro ones, and they'll be quite a bit too long.

It would be a shame to release a product that cannot be sleeved, especially if it was a simple matter of changing the card size slightly before release.

I'm thinking about getting this, and would expect to be able to sleeve the cards

To be fair - they are publishing this in-house, so they need to go with one of the card sizes they already produce.

Ah, I didn't realise this, thank you for the info.

~

If they've used this size before, has anyone had any success finding card sleeves that fit for the smaller sizes?

I know there are the usual companies, and they don't appear a good fit ~ But are there any better fitting cards sleeves from a company that's a bit more "off the grid"?

Current card count is:

18 role cards - poker
48 skill cards - mini
6 ship system cards - mini
5 ship upgrade cards - mini
5 tool cards - mini
16 battle plan cards - poker
31 yellow alert cards - poker
31 orange alert cards - poker
6 red alert cards - poker
-
64 mini
102 poker

Any sleeve that will fit Magic the Gathering (very common) will fit the poker cards, and the closest fit to the mini cards (which are 44.5 x 63.5mm)is Mayday Mini Euro Card Sleeves (45 x 68mm)http://maydaygames.com/mini-euro-card-sleeves.html

I updated the entry on my sleeves geeklist. Is this the correct final card count?

Apologies for the delay Taeraresh, I was seeking confirmation.

I've just had it confirmed from the creator that the above list is correct

It's a different color from the others - purple instead of green.
