... your favorite card sleeves get scuffed?

so I suggest Slee(sleeve)ves! a sleeve for your card sleeve.

Who hasn't poured untold hundreds of dollars into buying card sleeves to protect our games only to find the art, color, and texture of those "premium" sleeves wearing out? I think it should be CLEAR by now that the real solution is another transparent sleeve over the normal premium sleeve.

It only needs to be BARELY bigger than your old sleeves and protects that much more! and since they are cheaper than normal premium sleeves, if the Slee(sleeve)ve gets scuffed, simply throw it away and put another one on.

Just when you thought that board game accessories were getting dull, we have board game accessory accessories to help you stay financially addicted to the hobby of accessorizing your hobby.

This is ridiculous and unnecessary. You wouldn't have this problem if all your players wore the proper gloves and attire and played in a clean room.

I guess that fine for your cheap games, but for more played games you like I'd suggest bronze.

We need sleeves for our card sleeve sleeves! We must not allow a sleeve sleeve gap!

But don't forget the sleeves for your card sleeve sleeve sleeves.

Just in case they get scuffed.

The first step would be campaign for publishers made their inserts sleeve-sleeve friendly.

Add some beer bottles and barnyard animals and that image could pass for one of our game parties.

I demand game boxes with inserts large enough to insert my boxed games into them, with sleeve-sleeve cards within, naturally.

Card Sleeves Getting Scratches? WTF are people doing touching my card sleeves in the first place.

Obviously if I didn't mind people touching my cards I wouldn't have gone to the effort of protectiing them in the first place.

Actually, what irks me is that when a game has cards that are sleeved, and yet somehow someone still manages to bend a card and put a crease in it. Especially when the game was a limited print run and can no longer be purchased.

This terrible problem will continue to haunt us until widespread telekinesis is perfected. Just use your mind to float the cards across the table in mid-air and all will be well. Then, the only thing you'll have to sleeve is your brain!
