A little rudeness and disrespect can elevate a meaningless interaction to a battle of wills and add drama to an otherwise dull day.

Dear Publishers,

have you ever heard of sleeves? Tiny plastic condoms to be worn over cards? They are a thing now, really!

Would it be possible to shape your inserts accordingly.

Thanks

I agree. This is frustrating. This clearly was a well thought-out insert, but it does not work as intended when you sleeve cards... I moved things around and was able to put things in, but the box does not close well... Ugh...

It would have cost them nothing to make it a few millimeters bigger. I cannot understand the mentality of them not even considering something so common.

It is a source of frustration for us card sleevers, that box inserts are rarely made to fit sleeved cards. * Sigh *

I use pretty thick sleeves so there was no way my cards were fitting, no matter what I tried. I eventually took an X-acto knife and cut out the lower right corner. That way I can stack my cards side by side and everything fits nicely. The board still fits on top perfectly. I put the longer Old One and reference cards underneath the other cards.

I just got the game and sleeved the cards and got frustrated them not fitting anywhere. Cutting lower right corner looks like a perfect solution! Thanks for the idea.

It is so fun when you have to butcher your insert. /sarcasm
Btw what kind of sleeves did you use for the Old-Ones?

For the Old Ones I used Mayday French Tarot premium sleeves. They fit almost exactly.
