If I were to sleeve the entire game...would it all fit between the base game box and Vengeance?

But before that...is it worth sleeving? Anyone have it and played it a bunch without sleeves? How are the cards doing?

I've played dozens of games and the heroes used most often are showing wear, as well as heroes that some players were less then delicate with some cards. End result, I sleeved everything in ultra-pro sleeves.

The game no longer fits in the boxes. The channels are slightly too narrow for sleeved cards to fit well. Also the added bulk of sleeves means it would take about 4 boxes to fit everything. Www.go7gaming.com has an insert made to fit the game boxes and more details. I have been debating purchasing several for my collection.

I sleeved everything with Mayday penny sleeves (after Scholar got himself wounds he couldn't heal with his power) and yet I still managed to fit EVERYTHING (all expansions and mini expansions included)in two boxes- Base and Vengeance hold everything official, so I use Rook City/Infernal Relics for Cauldron and other custom stuff.

Yes, it fits WITH tokens, manuals, all printed promos and Vengeance Five character cards. I'll send you a photo once I get back home.

The bad side- it's really cramped and penny sleeves are crappy as all heck and break all the time. The good side- they're dirt cheap (compared to other) so I can easily replace them and they're soft and easy to shuffle.

I'm interested to know, the card channels in all my boxes were too narrow to fit sleeved cards without the sleeve tops really getting bent up. How were you guys able to manage?

Penny sleeves are just the right size. I tried with FFG ones before and they bent like crazy.

I didn't bother sleeving the villains or environments. Nobody picks them up with dirty hands or shuffles them nearly as much as the heroes' decks. Consequently, I went with Mayday premiums for all the heroes and they still look great. If you fear spills on the table, you might want to do the penny sleeves for the other decks, but I'm willing to risk it.

There is a hobby lobby artist's case that can be modified to fit all the cards inside (search for the other storage threads to find it), but if I had sleeved all my cards with premiums they would not have fit organized horizontally in four rows. I could have organized the cards vertically to make space for another row of cards, but I simply decided the four would be sufficient because I do not print unofficial expansions like the cauldron. As it stands, I'll have just enough room for the remaining expansions to be released.

I sleeved all mine in Ultra-pro sleeves. I fit everything into 3 boxes. I have fit the Villains into one box. The environments went into my Vengeance box with the carry over Heroes filling the second line and the Over-sized cards and tokens in the sideways compartment. I can fit the promo characters in if I had them but I do have Wrath and all its extras fitted in also.

I sleeved the base game and Vengeance with Ultra Pro penny sleeves, and its okay. Fits in the box fine, but the card has a little too much room in the sleeve.

I also tried:

The Ultra Pro Pro-Fit sleeves fit like glove. They can be too snug on many other games but fit great on Sentinels. The cost was just too much for me though, especially if I get more expansions.

The Mayday Green or Almost a Penny sleeves might be a good happy middle ground both in terms of fit and cost.

It's odd. I've read numerous times that the channels are too narrow for people, but I use the "stock" Ultra Pro clears and never had issue in the base enhanced box, Infernal relics & rook city combo, nor Vengeance. They fit like a glove.

All my boxes, Two Enhanced Edition and the Vengenace box (I did not get the Rook City/Infernal Relics box, I bought those early on seperately.) are all too narrow for penny sleeves, they add to much height to the top of the card causing the sleeves to have to bend to fit in the box.

I did sleeve everything in the much snugger Ultra Pro Deck protector sleeves (much thinker and better quality then penny sleeves, but much more expensive) and even those have to be wedged in to fit.

Perhaps there was a size difference in boxes, mine are all from early editions and pre-orders?

I just know I would kill for an extra 1/8" in each card channel row of my boxes.

I ended up using mostly the Ultra Pro Pro-Fit. They are almost exactly the same size as the cards, and take a bit of effort to get on, but are awesome. Several decks, mostly the base stuff, are too big, so I used a mixture of Ultra Pro premium sleeves and Dragon Shields for those. All fit in the base/RCIR/Vengeance boxes. Not sure why some decks from a box fit in the Pro Fits and some don't. Tried sleeves from a different package, same result.

I use Dragon Shields and everything fit into the EE/RCIR/Vengeance boxes without issue.

My original Enhanced Edition box was slightly thinner than the RCIR and Vengeneace boxes so I bought a later printing in December just for the bigger box. I'll probably buy a second RCIR box to store Cauldron.

I got FFG Sleeves; they don't fit well in the box

Has anyone seen a good box? I just need something for cards, not tokens, so the go7gaming insert doesn't work.

I have every Sentinels card released to date (though, not the Cauldron). I sleeved everything in UltraPro penny sleeves. After about a hundred plays, I'm glad I did.

The heroes almost all fit into the Base game box. Wraith, Visionary, and Unity spill over. Those three and all the villains fit in the Rook City/Infernal Relics box.

Environments and tokens fit in the Vengeance box. I probably have room for Villains of the Multiverse in that setup, but not sure how much more after that.

I'd really like a one-box solution, but the systems I see for the Hobby Lobby case don't seem like they are big enough to hold everything.

I use Ultra Pro sleeves and they fit in the boxes without a problem. I have all the expansions except the newest one just released. I have to use the three full sized boxes with the damage tokens and markers in the Shattered timelines box. I think the newest expansion will still fit in the boxes I have, though. So I have a little more time, at least until the next expansion!

I have all of the sets and use perfect fit sleeves on my cards, and they fit nicely in two boxes (one for heroes and one for villains and environments, with a third for tokens.

I finally compared some boxes side by side. My Vengeance box is actually about 1/8" wider than my Enhanced edition box. Ultra Pro Fit sleeves fit wonderfully in my Vengeance box, but will not fit in my Enhanced Edition boxes....Weird...
