I bought some shoes from a drug dealer. I don’t know what he laced them with, but I’ve been tripping all day.

I think that all right-thinking people in this country are sick and tired of being told that ordinary, decent people are fed up in this country with being sick and tired. I’m certainly not, and I’m sick and tired of being told that I am.

Maybe I'm too anal (make that way too anal), but I have had my copy of Agricola for a week and have yet to play it, because I would like to put all the cards in sleeves before playing with them.

I have two kids in single-digit ages, and I'm just afraid that the cards will become prematurely damaged or marked by them. I don't plan to play the game with them (yet!) but I expect they will be getting it out and "messing" with the components without my permission. (I'm almost glad I didn't get an animeeples version, as that might have been too much temptation for them.)

I measured the cards at 3-5/8" long by 2-3/8" wide, which is smaller than the standard Magic the Gathering card size of 3-5/8 x 2-5/8. The Yu-Gi-Oh cards are described as being smaller, but I can't find any specific dimensions, so I don't know if their sleeves will fit. Since I detest collectible card games, I have no actual cards to compare with the ones from Agricola.

Does anyone have an idea of what card sleeves would work for Agricola?

Thanks.

Might want to move this to the Agricola game forum.

I tried to put it there, but couldn't see how to do it -- there was no "Post" link.

Thanks for the link -- very informative. I should have done a better search before posting my question.

I was going to start sleeving my cards as well. (Didn't have enough sleeves so decided against it for now)
Anyway, the standard card sleeve for CCG's work fine. (Not Yu-Gi-Oh)

The sleeves I used specifically mention Yu-Gi-Oh. I'll have to double check that.

Sorry, when I said "Not Yu-Gi-Oh", I just meant that the one's I was using were not Yu-Gi-Oh they were regular CCG card sleeves.

Standard CCG sleeves work fine. The width is good but the cards stick out the top by an (acceptable) fraction.
