If you're like me, you've used Ultra Pro Deck Protectors (or sleeves if you're cheap) to house you RftG sized cards. And they've always seemed fine. But I just got a shipment of Max Protection sleeves (http://www.maxprotection.net/products.php?qs=tournament&sear...) and they DO seem like a better mousetrap. Thicker than the UPs, they are apparently the thickest sleeve on the market. No doubt there is a point of diminishing concern in this regard, but I don't think we're quite there yet. The flat indigo colored sleeve back is pleasing to the eye and the overall feel of each unit is protection personified. A very nice product. No big deal, but I found the website frustrating as it shows all of the available varieties of artistic sleeve designs but with little interpretive text.

I house the game (with all expansions) in an Ultra-Pro card box (http://www.ultrapro.com/page.php?pname=store/detail&product_...). This is my NINTH one of this 4 compartment boxes and I use them for every game with a plethora of cards this size or smaller. Cards from Agricola, for example, are ideal, D&D mini cards as well. It comes with a lid and two dividers that you can put in or remove to keep the cards standing upright. If you’re looking for the ideal in/play & storage card holder, check these out.

Can someone tell me again how the image thing works. I thought I had it right this time, but must have a digit in the wrong spot or something cry

Thanks,

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

Those are what I've been using for almost a year and they've held up great. I find them easier to shuffle too, though the deck is huge.
