My apologizes for bringing this up - I was hoping to hear from more people.

I'm a compulsive sleever but the cards in this game seems to be of good quality. However the edges seem to be made of paper so I was wondering how well they hold up to repeated shuffling over time.

Did or will you sleeve this game? If not, how have cards held up?

The game just came out so it's hard to say how they'd held up over time yet. I've played 4-5 times unsleeved so far and no noticeable issues yet though, if that helps.

But I do plan to sleeve these cards the next time I pick up a set of sleeves. Like all deckbuilders, you need to shuffle a lot and having sleeves both reduces wear & tear and allows you to mash shuffle.

Definitely TO sleeve (thick). Paperback too and all your deckbuilding games.

But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

In your world, I have another name. You must learn to know me by it. That was the very reason why you were brought to Narnia, that by knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there.

I was impressed by the quality of the cards. I agree that deckbuilders, of all games, greatly benefit from being sleeved. But I doubt these are going to wear out any time soon.

I'm a compulsive sleever. Even games line champions of midgard got sleeved.

If they are of as poor quality as the Paperback cards then you definitely need to sleeve them and you have to be very careful as it's very easy to damage the cards when sleeving.

Does anyone know the dimensions of the cards for picking sleeves?

I will probably sleeve just to make shuffling easier. But the cards seem to be of the finest quality.

The cards are standard card size - 63.5 x 88 mm.

I found that the Mayday sleeves fit a little bit better than the FFG standard sleeves. YMMV.
