I have the What's Your Game version and I would not buy either the size in you local shop or the Chimera size as they won't fit.

Fairy Tale cards are 2 15/32 * 3 7/16" (62.7 * 87.3 mm) but Chimera is only 57.5 * 89 mm.

I used the mayday Card Game size which is 2.5 * 3.5" (63.5 * 88 mm). It has the green packaging slip as my formatting indicates.

I bought them at the time that there was some issue with a significant proportion of the sleeves being manufactured narrower than stated. I never took the replacement sleeves that mayday apparently provided to gaming stores to pass on to customers free of charge despite the very tight fit of the cards and with a little wiggling and a lot of care I got them in. Some were too small and have fitted some other games but of course, some cards in the any deck are larger than others.

I also have the What's Your Game version.

I picked up Fantasy Flight's Standard Card Game Sleeves for it - these are also supposed to be 2.5" x 3.5".

It seems, however, that the sleeves are actually about 2.75" x 3.75". I think that the sleeves will be too big to use comfortably.

Turns out that I already had a pack of the Mayday sleeves, and they seem to fit just fine. Unfortunately, there seemed to be only 99 in the pack (maybe I used just one for something else)!

I had bought Chimera sleeves as the mayday sight had a wierd combination of Chimera stats next to a Standard Card Game sleeves color label.

I received my 2nd Ed WYG and let me say, I definitely cursed a bit. But standard Magic Card Sleeves fit just fine, no real extra flex room.
