I have a few questions that are not related to each other so I'll ask 'em individually:

Firstly, I'm brand new to Twilight Struggle. i'm so sure I'll enjoy the game I bought the Collector's Edition.

The sleeves that came with the game are more like card protectors than card sleeves. That being said, I sleeved them all with the included sleeves.

Other than being unusually thick and possible unusual to shuffle and hold, is this really all that's wrong with them?

Does anyone else keep them in the included sleeves? Seems like they'll protect the cards for life.

I use the sleeves. They are quite a bit thicker than the sleeves I normally use (FFG), but I actually like them a lot.

Same here. They are Heavy Duty. Those cards will survive a Nuclear Attack devil

I use them too.

I even took some left overs to sleeve special cards in other games such as the Nixon and Kennedy cards in 1960: The Making of the President.

I love them! Now i just want them to send me the corrected cards. I have a bad feeling GMT is planing on trying to ignore this into oblivion. . .

GMT announced on June 18 that the corrected cards are on their way to their warehouse—arrival 4 weeks from then, and then shipped on to us.

I'm not using the sleeves that came with it. They arrived with some bending problems and the plastic had a strange texture I wasn't cool with. Fantasy Flight Supply for me.

I hated the sleeves. They stuck to each other and to every table surface I tried out. Getting cards in, with the stickiness problem, would have been impossible if the cards were thinner. $8 worth of fantasy flight sleeves later and I was happy.

Well that's enough good feedback for me. I figured it was hate across the board. I like the idea of bomb-proof sleeves. Frankly, high-rotation games like Love Letter might do well with these sleeves.

Anyone know what exactly these sleeves are? Where to possibly buy more?

Threads like these almost make me wonder if we all got the same product. I can't imagine using the thick and sticky sleeves that came with the CE.

I hear you. Truly I do. But heck, I like em. Go figure. I also think they would be great for other games. ...if you're interested in selling me the sleeves if you still have 'em feel free to PM me. If you're not gonna use 'em you can turn 'em into a little money.
