Hey has anybody sleeved this game yet? I'm thinking Fantasy Flight Standard Card Game Sleeve size.

Also was wondering if anyone was working on a rules summary sheet.

I sleeved with FFG standard. Perfect fit on the cards, but they don't fit in the tray as well now.

Yup, they're Fantasy Flight standard (ie, clear/gray). There's just over fifty cards, so you'll need four packs. EDIT: (Just over a HUNDRED and fifty cards, obviously.)

Has anyone found suitable sleeves for the character cards?

I was hoping that I could use the same ones that I use for Talisman and Descent:

TBG size#Talisman 4th edition: Character cards + Descent: Hero cards
for 102x127mm cards

http://thaiboardgame.net/forum/index.php?topic=922.0

... but they are ~1-2 millimeters too small to fit these character cards, very frustrating.

Has anyone found any other options out there?

A decent cold-seal laminator is your friend when it comes to non-standard-sized game components that don't fit any sleeves. I use the Xyron ezLaminator from Amazon. I use a paper trimmer or rotary cutter for trimming.

Does laminating like this ruin the cards? Basically, if I wanted to take the lamination off, would the card still be in good shape?

Also ... I'm looking on Amazon. Which model do you use/like?

Thanks for the recommendation.

No.

Lamination doesn't come off.

Ever.

There's also toploaders in the same size, if you prefer.

Why cold-seal laminate vs. the heated kind? I've had bad experiences with cold-seal laminate peeling apart and slightly degrading the paper underneath as it did so. I'd much rather go with heat sealed, unless there's a compelling reason not to.

This. I use the 4x6 Ultra Pro PVC toploaders, slightly trimmed with a paper cutter. They're heavy duty and beautiful, and fit almost exactly. The 25 pack will cover ever hero sheet in the Works.

i'm trying to figure this out, my character cards are 105mm x 130mm.

the pvc 4x6 is 101mm x 152mm

how can it fit? did you have to cut down the character card?

Those numbers are inaccurate. The hero sheets are 4x5, the sleeves are 4x6. They fit with room to spare.

From my measurements, the hero/villain sheets are about 4 1/8" wide and 5 1/8" long.



I used these (200-count 4 1/4" x 6 1/8" sleeves w/ self-adhesive flaps):
https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0105Y1MAC?tag=article-boardg...

Instead of cutting them, I folded the excess length on the backside and sealed with the self-adhesive flap.

A 5 11/16"-long version is available, too, but it's more expensive.

Wish I had known that the 4x6 toploaders are wider than 4". I considered getting them, but the size concerned me. I'll keep it in mind for the future.

The ultra pro 4x6 soft sleeves don't fit. I had some leftover after sleeving the descent 2e hero sheets but TMNT sheets are slightly bigger. I'll probably try out the toploaders instead.

Would something like this work to cut through the PVC okay you think?

Also considering this one since it looks more heavy duty, but it has no reviews:

Cutting the PVC doesn't take much. I'm using a cheap papercutter that came used from an elementary school classroom. The Swingline should work fine, but I guess I can't guarantee that since I haven't used it personally.

That's disappointing, but I can guarantee that the PVC toploaders absolutely 100% fit.
