Does anyone make sleeves that would work for the player boards? I really don't want to laminate them.

Not perfect, but might work as a temporary/easily replaceable solution:

Or you could get some heavier weight plastic sheets, cut two pieces of the appropriate size per board, and find a place or person with one of those heat-sealing devices and seal on three sides for easy removal.
Or, if you're feeling really brave (), seal the boards inside. It wouldn't be laminated, meaning the plastic and could be (carefully!) cut off should you ever want to remove the boards/replace the covers.

Neither solution is ideal, but just a couple of ideas for your consideration.

EDIT: The other thing you could look into would be covers for first-day edition envelopes. Not sure what sizes they come in, but have vague memories of my mis-spent stamp-collecting youth in the UK that the size of the envelopes weren't too different from the player board size..?

Just asking: what's wrong with laminating?
I do that all the time!

The permanancy of it.

There's always a chance I may not like the game, and people may not want it laminated so that would make it a bit harder to trade or sell.

I may not like the lamination or the way it looks, and once you laminate something you can't "unlaminate" it.

I found some great sleeves at Spiel, Essen. I believe they were from Panasia/Swan sleeves and were too long on one side, but with a cutter, it works perfectly.

EDIT: PanAsia/Swan sleeves 110mmX250mm (7 Wonders)
