I'm sure I'm not the only one who did this, but since nobody mentioned it here, I'll share it with you:

All you need is four standard sized premium sleeves (65x90 mm) for the university cards - I used Swans.

First, they're now protected (mine already came a little scratched - out of the box - and even the painted foil started to peel off of the cards).

Second, and this is my favorite part, the builders now conveniently fit right behind the uni cards - into the sleeves -, which is rather handy since they're supposed to stay there until the end of the game.

And that's that, nohing special, but something that I think improves the game just one teeny little bit.

(Now of course this will only work if you don't intend to sleeve the builder cards, but I don't think the game needs sleeves that much anyway.)

Great suggestion!

Here's the wild part - I don't usually sleeve anything, so I don't generally have extra sleeves laying around. Except that TODAY I received a shipment from miniature market and it had a pack of promo sleeves in various sizes. After seeing your post I checked it out and, amazingly, this promo pack included exactly 4 sleeves exactly the right size for these cards! Wow!!!
