I have heard that the Essen Spiel is a good occasion to buy card sleeves of non-standard dimensions. Does anybody know at which booths are such card-sleeve sellers located (or their names, so that I can look them up)?
Also, I am on the lookout for a nice generic game mat that I can use on my table for games which have cards. Do you have some suggestions on which sellers could provide for that at Essen?
Pardon me for poking into the conversation, but let me recommend one I happened to have purchased a few years ago. It was not from Essen, but I thought I would mention it. They are very nice and they have many options. Just a suggestion and an example.
From my notes: 2014: Buy 2 player mats from www.inkedplaymats.com. Regular sized (24x14in) was Labyrinth Charelmagne (Dk. Green/Gold) with NO labyrinth. Second was custom two player playmat (24x28in).
Thanks a lot for the input, and don't hesitate to suggest stuff even if not available in Essen. I'm not sure I will have time to get everything, as I only go one day, and have to leave relatively early.
