In mocking up game ideas, I like to use MTG cards in plastic cards sleeves, and insert pieces of paper in front of the card with the mock up info.

Recently, I have started a project where I need smaller cards. Mayday Games helpfully provide small sleeves, but I have no source of cards to go in them to provide a bit of "backbone".

I wondered if anyone could recommend a cheap game with small cards that will fit well in one of the 3 "mini" Mayday sleeve sizes? Ideally I'd like 200 cards, but 100 would be sufficient.

Probe has tiny cards, although I don't know what sleeve would fit them. There are 5 colors total and I think around 70+ of 4 of those colors. The only problem: I see them in thrift stores only. Your other alternative is to find sets of tiny poker cards.

If you can find a cheap copy of the Talisman Upgrade Pack it has 160 smaller cards that you could use.

You will need Mayday's Mini Chimera Sleeves for it.

[edit] Just thought, the Upgrade pack has 104 Adventure cards which sport the same back. Still works though I guess...
