I sleeved my cards with ffg and it is not fitting in the area in the Tray. Any ideas to make it fit in the tray?

Since the components are pretty simple, I just put the cards in some Ultra Pro deck boxes and ditched the tray

I've also sleeved the cards, and what I've done is put them in the tray as close to flat as possible, without forcing them - in this way, most of the fit in fine, with only a small bit sticking out over the top, and thus far it hasn't had any downsides / damages.

I had the same problem. Did something like this:

Some people report that they fit their sleeved cards in the box with no problem. I can't see how the corners at least are not all bent if the sleeved cards are jammed in to fit. The above works well!

I have my copy sleeved and they barely fit in the box. I have them in UltraPro clear sleeves. As for arrangement, instead of trying to put them back in the slots horizontally on their sides, I put them at a slight angle vertically, on their sides. It will cause the box to not close 100%, but the sleeves wont gt bent, or marked up, and it all fits in snug. Put the Blue #3 deck in the middle between the Green #1, and yellow #2 decks, and the likelihood of something being ruined due to marking in game play will be less certain.

Currently, to not ruin the box any further, I have taken the cards out and put them in a deck holder, with the chips and noble cards in a bag that holds it all. Much less footprint when storing the game.

I used FFG sleeves as well. I ended up bagging the three decks in separate baggies and putting them under the insert. Simple but effective.

Cut a square in the inside part of the card insert along the bottom edge with an exacto knife and they'll fit perfectly, even with the thicker sleeves.

I just sleeved my Splendor game yesterday with Ultra Pro sleeves. They work great. The cards are now a tight fit into the plastic organizer. The cards are 66mm x 91 mm.

Sleeved cards and nobles in an UltraPro deck box. Plastic "pirate jewels" and metal "pirate coins" in a ziploc sandwich baggie. Rules memorized.
