I've never used sleeves before but it seems I might have to now. I need sleeves for all mage knight cards, can someone recommend what kind to by to best fit base game and tesla?

I'm a big fan of Fantasy Flight's sleeves. Standard card size, I think the blue packs.

I didn't notice any real size difference between this expansion's cards and the base game/LL cards. They fit in the 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 Mayday sleeves I've been using all along with MK. Mine fit perfectly. The challenge for me was trying to slide these flimsy cards into the sleeves and was on the verge of creasing each time.

But size wise I see no issues. Did yours turn out different from the others?

The only two card problems with this expansion that I know of involve the card stock thickness (mine are way too thin) and a slightly lighter print on the card back (a non issue for me as I can hardly notice).

The sleeves I use are a tad big, so the new cards, whole thin, slid right in with no issues. I'm posting a crappy video to show my experience.

Thank you everyone. From what I read I'll go with FF sleeves as noone seems to have had problems with those.

I've always believed that if you want to keep a game for a long period of time, then you need to sleeve your cards. Accidents happen. Drinks/Food get spilled all the time and unless you are not allowing any drink/food within 5' of your game, then you really should expect that, given enough plays, something will eventually get spilled on your game. There's also the fact that not everyone realizes that chips and pizza and other foods (even popcorn) tend to leave residue on fingers. All it takes is one greasy card to get shuffled in and suddenly your entire stack is sliding off the table.

I sleeved all my mage Knight cards with Fantasy flight Games Standard card (silver pack).

They are very high quality and tick. on the touch, you don't notice the difference unless you start bending the cards a little. This is where you will notice the thikness difference as the card from the original game don't bend as easily.

Just played a game with Braevlar and in the action, I wasn't noticing the tickness difference but obviously, if you really pay attention, I could notice if I was drafting a card from his deck or from the action cards I had bought earlier but barely. with the sleeves, I'd consider this almost a none issue.
