Hi!

I'm just about to order Manhattan Project, Nations 1 and Second Stage as the game seems really interesting, but I've seen several threads about different card sizes which are rather confusing.


How many cards are there in each of these and what sleeves could I buy for them? Will ordering 150 Mayday or FFG Mini-American sleeves be enough? I'm not sure if the people at the store know which printing of the game they have.

Thanks!

Base game: 80 cards (44 regular buildings, 6 starter buildings, 30 bombs)
Nations expansion: 7 nation cards, 1 rules card, 1 play-aid card
Second stage: 22 cards

total: 109 play cards + 2 reminder cards to probably not bother sleeving.
Note, if you don't use all of second stage, or choose not to sleeve nation cards (14 total) you don't cross the 100 line of two packs.

FFG Yellow is what I used
which is correct for 1st printing, 3rd printing and (hopefully, knock on wood) all future printings.

The second printing (by Queen Games), was a different size (FFG Red?) and I'd say it is unlikely for you to get a 2nd printing - at least in the US, I don't know about Sweden. Once opened, the 2nd printing has brown pieces instead of yellow pieces.

so as long you don't have a Queen Games edition there won't be a probleem buying the Nations expansion? I'm correct? I just bought the base game. And the box only mentioned 'Minion Games, copyright 2014'.

Since nations cards aren't shuffled with other cards, even if you get a size difference it doesn't matter. Unless you go with opaque back sleeves so you can mix Nations & Nations II (part of Second Stage). Of course, that's the gameplay answer.
