Considering the size of the Action Deck I’m curious as to how players are shuffling it.

Typically I split my deck in half then shuffle each half deck multiple times before then blending the half decks back together.

I repeat this process multiple times.

I’ve thought about using an automatic card shuffler but I don’t want to risk damaging the cards.

i do the same - multiple smaller stacks. My stack is extremely tall because it's thick-sleeved, so i play with it in a horizontal orientation using homemade card holders like the ones seen here:



(That photo was taken before i managed to get a copy of the Footlocker, so the stack seen there is quite small.)

i looked into these a couple years ago but didn't find any which claim to support sleeved cards.

Stephan,
I’ve never seen a shuffler for sleeved cards either.
That’s an interesting playing surface you’re using........

It's a playmat which was available via one of the Advanced Song of Blades and Heroes Kickstarters. i normally use the back side with this game, which is plain black but rubbery, so the cards don't slip around.

I pick up the deck split deal card split again deal card and so on. A bit cumbersome but it does stop card clumping.
