Hello all,

Love Cosmic and am thinking about sleeving the cards (first game I will doing this with). Which sleeves have you used from the cards themselves? I am not talking about the large alien species cards, just the encounter card sized cards.

Thanks for the help!

Also named Medium (for 57x89mm² cards or smaller).

(Arcane Tinmen Board Game Sleeves for me.)

Why green as opposed to clear?

Green is the package color. FFG colors each package as a color code, so on the back of the box, you have an easy reference for seeing which sleeves you'll need when buying their games.

The sleeves themselves are clear.

I use Mayday's "Chimera" sleeves: the premium ones for the variant side-decks, destiny, etc. and the thinner "penny sleeve" Chimeras for the cosmic, flare, and large-group decks.

They're less expensive than FFG's, but also not quite as durable. My main reason, though is for the thinness of the non-premium ones. With all the expansions and my homebrew materials, if I were to put my cards into thicker sleeves I wouldn't be able to fit everything in the box. The downside is that those "penny" sleeves do sometimes bend, tear, and have to be replaced.

Ah OK. That store sells green coloured sleeves from FF as well...so I was a little confused as to whether we were talking packing or sleeves regarding the green colouring.

I strongly recommend sleeving your cards. My game was starting to show the signs of the heavy amount of use it gets but now that my cards are protected it's given it a new lease on life.
Plus it helps me feed my OCD blush

Yes, but you've certainly come to the right place in that regard.

However, as a Kiwi, you may also be deported for thinking an Aussie is cool. Watch what you say ninja
