Look under the War of the Ring 2nd Edition forum, should be the same size, there is probably an answer there. I used some leftover sleeves that I had gotten from that , I think they were Mayday .

I think Janko means the large cards, shown in the middle of the image below.





Yes, the "standard" cards are tarot sized. Ares used to sell sleeves that fit perfectly. I ran out and I can't find another pack anywhere. Fantasy Flight Games (FFG) sells excellent quality tarot sized sleeves. They're 1 mm wider than Ares' sleeves. It's somewhat annoying to me, but what is one to do.

For the larger cards, there comes a point that a cardboard product is no longer a card as such. I may be able to track down an odd sized sleeve that will work. But, I've decided to press these cards in my cold press plasticizer, like I do with 8.5" x 11" cardboard gaming aids.

Mayday sleeve size: Tiny Epic Kingdoms - Green/Red (MDG-7129, 100/pack) - (88 x 125mm)
Swan PanAsia sleeve size: Cutthroat Caverns (SWN-048, 100/pack) - (90 x 128mm)
Ultra-Pro sleeve size: Oversized Black Deck Protector (82420, 40/pack) - (90 x 127mm)

I sleeve a lot of stuff, but given that the large Faction cards don't get shuffled, I think I'll pass on sleeving them.

Probably just better off laminating it.

Uhm... no.

Just don't bother about it - be reasonably careful with these and there's just no reason to sleeve or protect in any way. You don't shuffle them and they never need to be hidden. And this is coming from someone who normally does sleeve cards. It's just not necessary for these.

Well, I personally would like to sleeve them too. So if there are no sleeves that fit, I think I will laminate them. It worked well for the tableaus from Star Wars Rebellion too!
