I purchased the Black Box yesterday and opened my copy of Phase. Was very surprised to see there were only 150 sleeves in the box that contains some 300 cards. I have been looking online to see if my box was missing sleeves or if AEG did this intentionally. Did anyone else pick up the 2016 Black Box and, if so, did you receive 300 sleeves or just 150?

Thank you in advance!

FYI, I have an e-mail out to AEG, but have not heard anything back yet.

The side of the box says 150. I looked too after I had the same problem. Thankfully you don't need all of the cards immidiately.

You get sleeves for 5 decks. Decks are 30 cards and max of 5 players in a game so it makes sense. They are not giving you sleeves for all of it.

But really the game it complete crap and AEG is the worst company so I would recommend selling this trash

I dunno, we tried it out today and it was pretty neat. Not a ten or anything, but it was fun.

I was a bit put off by that initially as well, but after further thought, I think it's a good compromise. First off, I wasn't expecting sleeves in the box, so the fact that they included some is a bonus. Especially since they're the Tarot sleeves, which I don't have tons of lying around.

On the other side of things, I know it hurts us sleevers to think about this, but not everybody likes sleeving their games. Including 300 sleeves would mean they would be charging the non-sleevers for 6 sets of sleeves they would never use. The good quality ones retail for $3.50-$5.00 (the ones in the box seem about on par with Fantasy Flight's Tarot sleeves). So that would be an extra $21-$30 in msrp value above and beyond the game if they included 6 sets. Then the non-sleevers would complain they're being gouged for what should otherwise have been a $30 game.

They might still complain, but now there can be equal minor complaining from both sides. I don't think the sleeves are a deal breaker for anyone who was planning to get the game anyway. Just a nice perk for those who didn't expect it, and who don't have a ready supply of Tarot sleeves because so few games feel the need to use.

My only problem is that they made 6 pre made decks and I was only given enough sleeves for 5 of them..

Think of it this way. Most companies don't give you any sleeves when you purchase a card game and you have to buy them all on your own separately. I looked at it as a nice bonus that they included some sleeves.

My problem is that I can't side shuffle the damn tarot sized cards sleeved. Pretty annoying.

Presumably because the game theoretically sits only five, but it is really odd, I agree.
