What are the best sleeves for this game? The English second edition by KOSMOS, to be clear. I checked the Card Sleeves Geeklist and it didn't look like there was a clear answer. Do the large cards need to be shuffled? They seem to be the hardest to sleeve. Also I didn't see the expansions on the list.

Thanks.

I don't know about sleeve sizes in general for this one, but I don't think you need to sleeve the large legend cards. The legend cards basically always stay in the same order, with the exception of some legends that have you pick a card from 4 or 5 options.

I have the large cards sleeved with Ultra Pro sleeves. Where I bought them they were simply referred to as "Dixit Sized".

No. Don't bother sleeving them. They aren't handled much. There's one Legend in which you pick a random setup Legend card (of ~4 large Legend cards), but sleeving won't help with shuffling 4 cards, IMHO, and you can just roll a die to randomly select that setup card.

The event cards are shuffled once per game. They might be worth sleeving.

I third the above - no sleeves needed. No shuffling, no rough handling of cards (big or small)...

...unless you do it for a gaming club, then maybe. But not even then, if it is a community that knows each other. Perhaps only for a public event.

Hi Femmeworth!

I use FF sleeves in the "Standard European Board Game" size (59 x 92 mm) for the small cards (golden Event cards); 1 pack will do. They fit perfectly and the sleeves are top quality!I figure it's a small additional investment that will protect the cards in the long run from shuffling and handling.
I agree that the large Legend cards don't need sleeving.
The only other pimping I did of my game was switching the wooden dice for regular plastic dice (in the same size and appropriate colours, of course). I just wasn't crazy about how light and odd they felt when rolling. Plus the substitutes I found are in really cool textures, translucent, kinda like gems, which fits nicely with the game thematically

In case you still want to sleeve the big cards you can use Mayday Magnum 80x120mm. The product name is MDG-7104. I sleeved them so they better blend with the bonus legends I printed out.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I ordered the FFG Euro sleeves for the smaller cards and got these https://www.miniaturemarket.com/gps96702.html for the big cards. MM didn't seem to have any other sleeves that would fit. I don't expect they will be good sleeves but should suffice.

Ultra Pro's standard sleeves are at 66 by 92

I wonder if SwanPanasia's 60 by 92 will do?

Ultra Pro's european standard was 59 by 92 and it was simply too tight.

One other option is Mayday's 63.5 by 92.

For an update, the FFG European sleeves are a little taller than needed but good. The Game Plus sleeves I got for the legend cards are... adequate for this purpose. They are budget sleeves but not as thin as Mayday's non-premium ones. They have wear/defects from manufacturing but most won't notice like I do. I wouldn't recommend them but I think they are better than nothing.

The card stock is what I expect from KOSMOS i.e. mediocre at best and in need of sleeves immediately, by my standards.
