Does anyone know what size the cards for the new anniversary edition are?

I'd also like to know sizes for sleeving.

I managed to find the cards in this "unboxing" video @ around 6m50s...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UlNlMVgX71k&t=6m50s

They look to be somewhere around standard size, but obviously can't tell from the video if that's standard USA or European, or some other non-standard size.

There are supposedly 100 cards (though another source claimed there were 90-odd, perhaps that was out of date information).

The cards are standard bridge sized, ie 2.25" x 3.5" / 57mm x 89mm
In terms of FFG sleeves, these are what they call 'Standard American Board Game Sleeves'

There are 100 cards in the game

Fantastic, thanks Filip.

I feared they would be some unusual size.

We use FFG sleeves whenever possible due to bad experiences with variations in widths/heights with other brands. Think I may have enough standard USA already, so if they fit nicely that's great news.

Once sleeved will they still fit into the boxes?
Thanks

I've used FFG Standard American sleeves, and didn't even try putting them back in the small card boxes. I guess they'd be too tall as there was maybe 3mm or so extra sleeve at the top, and obviously the decks are at least twice as deep once sleeved, so you wouldn't get them all in there anyway.

However, there's plenty of space in the larger red cross parcel box for all the small components, including the sleeved cards, wooden pawns, dice & cardboard tokens. You just need to remove the thin/clear plastic tray that holds the pawns.

And I've just put the small empty card boxes back in their slots in the main insert.
