Is there a sleeve size that fits the big goofy square cards?

If there is they are probably so expensive that you could buy a second copy of the game instead of sleeves.

I generally sleeve everything but games that cost me under $20 are the exception.

If you cut 18mm off of each direction, they will fit in the FFG square sleeves. You are welcome.

Helpful replies are helpful.

Also, math-check. 9mm in each, not including the subsequent corner rounding which will be required.

Hmm I saw 88mm square for the cards and 70mm square for the sleeves.

But I figured you'd be keen on the corner rounding cool

Yep 88mm. So -18 from each direction (n,s,e,w) leaves 52x52. From giganto to hobbitses.

I hate square cards. Pointy ones, doubly so.

Ah. By direction I meant horizontally and vertically. Fun fact*: I had originally said each side, but changed it for clarity. Apparently it still wasn't clear enough!

* Disclaimer: fact may not be fun.

I would like to offer my $0.02

Contact paper.

As long as you are very careful with trimming it, this is viable.

I did this with the Harbout PnP player boards

Like laminating them?

Edit: also, thanks for actually being helpful. It's very refreshing

Swan Card Sleeves: 90x90 mm

http://swanpanasiasleeves.com/standard-sleeves/swan-card-sle...

They are currently listed as "pre-order" so you may have a frustrating wait ahead.

CSI carries some sizes, but not Swan Panasia's full line.

Usually i sleeve all my cards, but i guess this time the box is too small for it. I don't think that the sleeved cards fits back to the game box. Its a real shame, i like the game and want to sleeve the cards, but i don't want to make some homemade box and throw away the tin. Why can't made boxes a bit larger to fit the sleeved cards?

Swan sleeves are now available. I got my preorder in.

No, the tin does not comfortably fit everything back in. You can get the lud somewhat closed, but nor tight at al.

Sleeved cards will fit in the tin. The Swan Panasia 90x90 ones are far too cheap for my preference. I broke one shuffling tonight and they make them much harder to shuffle. I am almost ready to unsleeve them at this point. Grrr....

I also sleeved the workers. That is why my stuff did not fit back in.

I sleeved both and got everything back in. It is a bit high, but the lid grips the sides at least partially.

I may remove the sleeves completely though. I would hate doing that, but I dislike the only large square card sleeves I could get. I really wish one of FFGs sleeves would fit them.
