The images posted here make the cards look like they are printed on paper and cut by hand with scissors. Please tell me these are prototype images. If someone owns the full game, can you describe card quality and size relative to some popular game.

The cards measure 40mm x 60 mm
They have no rounded corners.
They are made of thin cardboard, but are coated...

Wow! I bet that gets corrected if they get picked up by a big publisher.

A corner-rounder tool will do the job. And there are sleeves for them in Korea (interhobby.co.kr)

I don't want any game badly enough to modify every card and put them in sleeves.

Since the cards are just about as high as standard CCG cards are wide you can lay the cards side to bottom in ordinary card protector sleeves.

I used the cheapest kind I could find (the 100 for a $ kind), folded them once and sliced through the folding with a knife.

Worked like a charm.

Make sure to fold the sleeve so that it folds above the face of the card since the edge will point slightly upwards and you want to be able to slide the cards on a flat surface.

Bzzz. Sorry, you just failed the "Are you a Real Gamer" test. No, really.

Yes, we are aware of the rounded corners "problem". However as we stated elsewhere the game was produced in a small quantity for Essen 2006, so we had to watch the budged very tightly. Given that we am very happy with its high quality, even thought we see space for amelioration.

The burning question is:

When your games are going to be reprinted, so normal people (i.e. those that could not attend Essen ) can buy a copy?

You have no reason not to be happy with the quality.
For the price asked in Essen the game provides exellent value for money!

Many of the limited games bought in Essen are of a much lower quality - and we are still happy one of those.
