I'm ordering sleeves for Maria (I like the clear Mayday sleeves). Could someone please post the size of the cards?

I believe they are regular playing cards. You'll need different backs for the different political years.

Just sleeved my copy. Go with the Fantasy Flight green package.


Great. I have a couple of the Fantasy Flight green packs that I bought by accident once. I'll try them and if they're the right size I'll buy the others. The Fantasy Flight sleeves are available locally, the Mayday ones I have to order.

The Fantasy Flight sleeves are clear so I won't have any trouble with the different backs.

Now to work on some tuckboxes.

Can anyone confirm that the green Fantasy Flight Supply sleeves fit. The messages from the user who said they did are gone. I question only because the green sleeves are American Standard and Maria is definitely not an American-based game. Usually, I find, that the Eurogames use the purple FFS sleeves better.

Here's a handy summary of Maria's card size and fitting sleeves:

Mayday Standard USA (Purple) 56x87mm
= Ultra Pro Deck Protector Mini
= Arcane Tinmen Dragon Shield Mini
= FFG Standard American FFS03
= Yu-Gi-Oh Card Size
= Bridge Card Size

I just bought sleeves for Maria and Friedrick and thet are NOT regular playing card size. You'll need the Mayday chimera sleeves.

Maria's cards fit absolutely perfectly in Mayday's Standard USA (Purple pack) sleeves, i.e. they are bridge-sized cards. I just tried it myself. Mayday's USA Chimera (Orange pack) 57.5x89mm sleeves are about a mm too wide and 2 mm too long.

Here's the perfect sleeves for Maria:

Mayday Standard USA (Purple) 56x87mm
= Ultra Pro Deck Protector Mini
= Arcane Tinmen Dragon Shield Mini
= FFG Standard American FFS03
= Yu-Gi-Oh Card Size
= Bridge Card Size

Want some chimera sleeves? I'll trade you. They are a tad looser than I like. Where were you two weeks ago when I ordered these? Are the purple sleeves available in a "premium" thickness? The chimera sleeves I have are also thinner than I like.

I just ordered some Chimera sleeves, but the short answer about premium sleeves is yup.
