Maybe they have shares in Swan Panasia?

Hmm, even swanpanasia doesn't seem to carry that size. Unless 90x140 (ora et labora) cards fit?

It's seriously such an unfriendly size. There's literally no reason why they had to make it such a weird size. Anything that 86x135 can do, 80x120 (or even 70x120) can do as well.

The insanity of this really bugs me.

Not yet, but hopefully, maybe, they just might make some in the near future.

You can say that again.

Jamey has this:

Is there an equivalent that's from gamers to publishing companies? That should include:

- If you're going to make a custom plastic insert, do make it hold sleeved cards
- Try and stick to standard sized cards for which there are existing sized sleeves

It's the creature special abilities from the deluxe edition.

Cards that don't need sleeves, as they will never be shuffled/randomized, because they are all identical.

i don't think you should assume what people like or don't like to do with their cards. there are people, like me, who sleeve everything because they like to keep their games in pristine condition.

in any event, the fact remains that *no purpose is served* by making the cards a strange size that is unsleeveable. you remove an option (sleeving) without adding anything. the cards could easily have been 80x0 or 70x120 and still function as well.
