For no discernible reason, I like hanging trapeze-like in towel folds.

I have been sleeving my games lately but they have been deckbuilders so lots of shuffling. They also use standard size sleeves which has made things easier. (I like Dragon Shield mattes.)

I just got Secrets and see it has lots of those little Euro size cards. Wondering if they need to be sleeved or whether, like Arkham Horror, they never get shuffled once the game starts.

Thanks.

You sometimes need to search a deck for an item or artifact, and you need to shuffle afterwards, but in general, after the start of the game, there isn't a lot of shuffling.

You might want to sleeve the monster cards, as they will be put into/taken out of the red stands quite often.

Are the monster cards the standard size ones or the small ones?

There are both - the larger monster cards are bosses and aren't put in/taken out as often (once per play of that scenario). The smaller monster cards are normal and elite monsters and are put in when they spawn and taken out when they die.

It's a love/hate relationship.

I'm normally a sleever, but we've played SotLT a ton with no sleeves and had no issues with card wear. The card quality is surprisingly good for a first game from a new company.
