I am really loving this game. Played it three times now with 4 and 5 players and it is so fun.

But one thing I noticed in playing is that it looks like it will be very easy to have the cards fray as they are picked up, moved around, cards slid underneath them, etc. (I hate to say that the component quality is probably the only weakness in this game).

So I decided to sleeve the cards last night.

And discovered that the bags that are provided in the game for the cards no longer fit!

I'll have to scrounge up some other ones somewhere. And of course the insert's going to have to go.

Yes, I know, first world problems.

I used Ultra Pro Deck Boxes in 4 different colors, works perfectly.

Are those snug-fitting? I admit part of the problem is that the sleeves are a little bigger.

Just get rid of the plain white cardboard insert. Thats what I did after sleeving with FFG grey/standard sleeves. Everything fits great now !

No, I meant the cards don't fit in the bags! The insert's not the problem.

That being said, if I have a friend of mine make me a foam insert, then that will solve my problem.

I also used ultra pro deck boxes and they hold the cards well. Chuck the insert.

I still managed to fit them in the baggies, even after sleeving, but they are thin sleeves. It seemed to work best to put about half of the stack in a bag and then slide in the rest.

I've since built an insert, my first, and keep meaning to post a few pictures.

Yeah, that insert was gone the second day of Origins when I picked up my game. A custom insert would be fun, or maybe Broken Token or Meeple Reality will get one together.

I always sleeve my cards with the "perfect fit" by Ultra Pro.
