Does anyone use anything to protect their monster tokens from damage? Capsules, perhaps? If coin capsules work fine for clues and gates, what about square ones for monsters? Any recommendations (if any exist)?

I use coin sleeves from eBay.

They cost around £5 for 100

I use the card sleeves for the smaller cards in the game, cut them down and tape them over.

Are they at all annoying to handle in those sleeves?
Someone using this got an image of some?

Here.
At this moment I've only got epics inside these, so I can't tell much about how shuffling tokens in the bag would feel.
Basing on the few tests I've made, it should be fine with one remark: My sleeves have noticeably sharp corners and these should be dulled before one would rummage through the monster bag.

I agree with the comments about the edges, just need to be careful when "plunging" your hand in to the monster bag! I suppose any sharp edge injuries are all part of the evil awakening of the Great Old One! gulp

Thanks. Would probably need a bigger monster bag (and bigger overall storage solution, which is getting tight just about now), but looks intriguing, might look into it.
