So, I've seen a few threads about miniature storage and card sleeving, but now I actually have this beast of a game I see how much this is really needed!

I think most of the suggestions in other threads have been for US products.
Has anyone come card sleeves that fit well and storage for the minis with UK products?

Thanks!

Avoid these unless you want lots of faff.

I have not opened my base game so far but if you want to sleeve regular poker cards I cannot recommend Mayday.

Most of my regular cards are sleeved with KMC Perfect Size sleeves.
They are not as durable as the regular ones but I still have to see one getting destroyed!

As long as you avoid The Grinder shuffling technique you should be fine.

I sorted out with one supplier in the UK, and they have a single click link for all you need for the base game normal sized cards and gear cards.

@Tristan I take it you can only fit the survivors in those storage box?
Or rather, you can't fit the larger monsters at least?

UPDATE - these have arrived, and though they fit the gear cards they have a flap which you have to either fold over or cut away for every single card, I would not recommend them.

My sleeves arrived today, after a long wait for the 52mm square swan sleeves. Perfect fit and a good price. So follow that link above to get them.

I got the Mayday Games sleeves for my cards (57.5 x 89 mm) :

- the normal ones (pack of 100) for non monsters cards
- the reinforced ones (pack of 50, 125% thicker) for all monsters cards (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Mayday-Games-63-5-SLEEVES-Premium/dp...)

So what was the Gear card alternative to Hong Kong Ebay sellers?

Anything on Amazon? Can't work out the dimensions of those from the Ebay link. Cheers.

Seeing as the link for http://www.boardgameextras.co.uk/item.php?id=26920#.VoKsn1K2... is out of stock, I'm looking to get it all from Amazon, but need to know what to get for gear cards.

And how to add more than 6 things to the stupid cart, be just my luck if they only had 6 of each in stock

Since the search function seems to be your enemy:

You English must be about as good as my German, I can't read a word of that and it sure as hell doesn't look like Amazon.

Might also explain why searching for 52x52 cards on Amazon didn't return any results.

It states the sizes you were looking for. And google translate is a neat little invention

If you still feel unable to find sleeves in the UK post again and i will do the work for you.

Feeling nice. Not Amazon, since they are stocked really bad at this stuff. But maybe try here, you can probably get everything from them.
Click

Email them and ask when they get new stock or search for a different dealer.

P.s.: people ordered to the US from happyshops and were quite satisfied. I would still recommend my first post with Google translate. You already know what and how much to order. Can't be that hard.
Or you order from them directly from bulgaria (Website is english so all will be good):Click

A review:
Quote:
I bought a bunch of these for Kingdom Death s 52mm square gear cards. They re definitely the best sleeves I ve seen at this size. I had previously purchased Swan Panasia s 52mm sleeves but they were the same thickness as penny sleeves and they stuck together a lot. Neither of these are issues with Mage Company s. I m very pleased with the ones I bought here. The one thing I will warn about though is that the main photo here does not depict the actual sleeves. Check out the second photo which I hadn t noticed until just now. The sleeves are 53mm square intended for 50mm square cards. My 52mm cards were a tight fit. Sometimes my cards went in without issue sometimes I had to exercise a bit of patience and careful force. All in all though definitely recommend. Way better than anything else out there that I ve seen."

Hi everyone,
I know this thread is a little bit old, but I've got a question especially to the european gamers out there. I've been looking around for a while to get my hands on the BCW pro coin sleeves (https://www.amazon.com/BCW-20-Pocket-Pages-Pocket-Size/dp/B0...), but it's not that easy here in germany. Okay, there is amazon.de but they're demanding ~31€ (~35$) for 20pc. That seems a little bit too pricy (even for KD:M). Especially when the same amount in the US costs ~6$ ... Did some one got the same problem and had found some other well fitting coin sleeves? (complete pages).

Greetings,
Sven

Can confirm this. Ordered these sleeves 3 times now. Delivery took about a week for me. Only downside is that there are about 30% of these sleeves not fitting very well (cards get bend if you force them in), so order some more packs just in case.

For the main cards I ordered these: http://www.smiling-monster.com/Kartenhuellen/Premium-Huellen...::53.html
As much as I like FFG-sleeves for all my other games, I think these swan-sleeves fit much better, have almost the same quality and are much cheeper.

Thanks for the answer, but the sleeves for every card itself aren't the one I'm trying to get. I like the idea of putting my Gearcards into some binder. So i need the Sleeve Pages. I'm also convinced of this use of the pages:


(It's a picture from techraptor.net, so credit for this idea goes to him.)

Greetings,

[Edit] If I would change my mind an began to sleeve every card itself, aren't the swan 52x52 mm sleeve a good idea? Maybe not 30% rejects.. [/Edit]

Avoid these unless you want lots of faff.



I really like the look of those sleevs you used for settlement events. did they have a flap, or did they have an open edge you just slip the card into?

Open edge, just like regular sleeves. There is a bit of space in them, which I'm fine with, but one chap said they're too big. Just FYI.

OK, ta. I'd rather they be too big than have an flap/adhesive flap. They look nice and thick too.
