Got my copy of the game in today!

Due to my OCD I generally stick with the same brand of card sleeves due to the minor differences if I use different brands. The FFG sleeves have my preference and generally has the sizes that I need, with the exception for the odd-sized cards of Friday and Star Wars: The Queen's Gambit. However, with the cards for Hannibal & Hamilcar the FFG Green (Standard American) the fit seems too tight and the FFG Purple (Standard European) the fit seems too loose. Which card sleeves are recommended for this game?

Didn't the KS campaign have a recommendation/option for card sleeves? I could be mixing up my games, but I'd check the KS page first.

Thank you for your reply.

Looks like the kickstarter points to the Paladin card sleeves by NSKN Games (http://www.nskn.net/en2/paladin/paladin-sleeves-preorders/) but the preorders are closed now. However, I'll need 59 x 92 mm card sleeves. (FFG Green is 57 x 89 mm). Mayday seems to have the same size in their Premium line (90 microns just like the Paladin ones, whereas FFG is 105 microns). Close enough though

I ordered the sleeves with my KS pledge, so I'm alright for sleeves. Is there some reason you don't want to or can't use the Paladin sleeves themselves? Are they not for sale commercially?

I have used FFG Green... The fit is very tight, but it works.

I have tried different brands in the past but I got annoyed by the tiny differences when using them within the same game. (As for instance I couldn't remember which brand I used for which game and an expansion got added to the collection.) Therefore I just picked a brand that at that time was readily available to me and was of good quality which turned out to be the FFG ones.

I can't order the Paladin ones at the moment. I ordered the Mayday ones now, but they haven't arrived yet.

I wanted to use FFG Green as well and tried them initially for this game. But as you mentioned it is a very tight fit. The cards bend slightly within those sleeves.

Put a weight for a couple of hours over the deck and sleeved cards will be flat.
