If you want high quality sleeves that hold the cards snugly, get the ones the FFG puts out. They are perfectly sized. I originally had my cards in euro sleeves, but they were just a bit to wide, so the cards slid around.

I now have the cards from the base and expansion game in FFG sleeves. They are a perfect fit. These are the ones you want. You'll need three packs to sleeve all the cards from the base game (or 5 packs if you want to add in the expansion cards).

Also, here's a chart that shows which type and how many you'll need for all the FFG games.

Also - Mayday games do the Chimera sized sleeves that are a perfect fit, cheaper, 100 per pack (rather than 50) but a little thinner. YMMV.

I have to agree with the Mayday sleeves. Fit snug and cheap. And they fit back in the box as long as you don't buy the premium euro sleeves.

can they still shuffle ok though? do two or three or more stick together after a bit or are they all mostly un-stuck and easy to shuffle with the mayday or FFG sleeves? I have some BCW deck guards which have a bubbly like service on one side that makes them not stick together and easy to shuffle, so I'm curious how the mayday and ffg sleeves hold up to shuffling from those which have them before I decide if I should try them out.

thanks
kevin

Do they have clear or opaque backs?

The mayday sleeves I was originally using stuck together. Before each game, we would cycle through each deck and then they would shuffle just fine.

The FFG sleeves do not stick at all.

Another difference is that the FFG ones are a bit thicker than Mayday. This is great in terms of protection. However, this means the cards will not allow the gameboard to fit flush in the insert without making two stacks of cards. I really like the FFG sleeves and am using them with other FFG games I own.

thanks for the info as I've had other types too that stuck so was worried about which direction to go. i think I'll pick up some FFG ones to check them out.
