Are there people who didn't put their cash in stacks? This if the first I've heard of it.

I didn’t vote, but I have all the money and stickers in its original packaging as I use poker chips for nearly all game money.

I finally bought a copy after hearing so many good things, and my first thought when I saw you were supposed to wad the cash was "Hell no, that sounds like a lot of work".

Then, later in the day, I started the process of wadding it.

I'm actually surprised so many people seem to have been willing to go through the effort though!

Plain old paper money is absolutely wretched. The wads of money are both vastly more usable and also just really freaking cool. I can't imagine anyone not assembling it unless they were using poker chips or some other replacement.

I actually found it to be way more tedious than sleeving the cards.

First you have to count the bills into stacks. Sometimes that works better than others because the bills don't always want to separate when going through them. So after counting out all the stacks of ten for a given bill value, I would end up with a stack of 7 or 8 at the end, and have to go back through and re-count every previously counted stack to find where the missing bills were.

Then, when it's time to sticker them together, you need to make sure your stack is nice and straight, and you want to apply the sticker in roughly the same spot on every stack, making sure the sticker is wrapped tightly to prevent the inner bills from moving.

That process is compounded by the bills not being particularly fun to look at after the first couple of stacks.

Sledging the cards was far more interesting because I could look at each card's art, flavor text, etc. as I was sleeving them. Also, I've sleeved so many cards in my life, I can probably do it blindfolded just as easily.

The tedium never set in when sleeving the cards, but it definitely was there after just a few minutes of wadding the bills. Also, I think it took significantly less time to sleeve the cards than it did to wad the bills. We're talking hours.

I don't think I'll ever do that again for any game, even a Level 99 game. It's a cool idea, but those wads really should have come pre-assembled.

I like a game that shows a little play, so I prefer not to sleeve. But I feel like the wads of cash are a key part of the experience!

That’s some cool sentiment and I digg but dude, sleeving makes it much easier to shuffle that store deck ziggurat you’ve thrown at us!

Split deck into halves.

Take small portion of left half. Take small portion of right half. Shuffle. Place in center. Repeat until both halves have been shuffled together.

Now repeat that two or three more times.

Of course, the best way to shuffle the deck is to wash the cards. To do this, simply spread them all out on a large, clean table, and push them around randomly. Get your friends to help. Eventually start picking up chunks of cards and squaring them.

You can't do that with sleeved cards, though. It'll split the sleeves.

Someone here recently suggested swapping out cards one-for-one when it’s time to change sets, so I’ve started playing with that. It makes shuffling the whole Store deck waaay easier.

If you just need to shuffle the deck, split it into 4 or 6 piles. Take half of two stacks and shuffle them together. Repeat a couple times, mixing up the pattern. This will move things around.

When it comes time to change the sets in the deck, figure out which ones are coming out and which are going in. Divide the deck into 4 or 6 again. Shuffle the new sets together by type (all master in one pile, etc.). Sort out the master sets you are replacing from each of the mini stacks. Shuffle the same number of cards from the new set stack into the mini stack. This keeps the Store deck fairly even without having to re-integrate the set types after sorting them all out. Also, shuffling is way easier this way.
