What size sleeves can be used for the cards that come with this game?

Also why are there more stickers than there are Meeples to use them?

Sleeves for Burgle Bros

So you can choose which style you like for each character.

I should be able to trim some sleeves down for the game.

Seems odd to me that there are fewer meeples (8) that the total amount of stickers (18 at 9 per sticker sheet) though, as there's not much point in adding them to the meeples if they all can't be used. Would have been better to have had 1 meeple per character role as they do in some other games.

It's the equilivant of getting pandemic with 9 less coloured pawns to represent the roles. Isn't a probably, will just leave the stickers on the sheet.

There aren't fewer meeples; there are excess stickers. whistle

The alternative powers were a stretch goal from the Kickstarter (that wasn't reached, but Tim Fowers is generous). The alternative art was a stretch goal that wasn't part of the campaign, but Mr Fowers went ahead with it any way. I'm not sure when the alternative art stickers were announced. I think they just turned up in the box when the Kickstarters were delivered.

You can buy extra BBeeples from the BoardGameGeek store at the moment.

It sounds like you're missing a meeple. There should be one for each character card.

You read that far more carefully than I did. That's exactly what it sounds like. My link to the BGG store shows the 9 that should be in the box. Part of the fun is working out which sticker fits which shape.

I just discovered that the Ultra Pro - Pro Fit sleeves fit the cards perfectly width wise. You just need to invest some time trimming the sleeves down. All in all, they look nice. cool

Do the copies he sells now from his website come with the stretch goals, like the second set of stickers?
Thanks
