I'm thinking of buying the P&P version of Yomi.

The only quality card sleeves I can buy locally are the solid Ultra-Pro sleeves. They are great to build most of my P&P games, but they have a problem: they have a "flashy dot" on the bottom center that sometimes overlaps with a stat of the playing card, making it impossible to read (you can read it if you partially unsleeve the card, but it sucks).

Can anyone tell me if that "flashy dot" overlaps with the bottom stats of Yomi cards (real or printed ones)?

I'm using the same sleeves for my P&P Yomi and the dot is no issue for me.

Doesn't overlap anything if you put the card in such that the dot is on the back. Problem solved.

You're obviously not a hard-core gamer

sleeving and sliding?
Can someone experienced with card sleeves let me know: what keeps the stacked deck from slip-sliding around? Or do the sleeves have enough friction it all holds together? Do different brands slide more?

Sleeves have enough friction to keep cards stacked.

However, when sleeves are new, the sleeve hasn't adapted its shape fully to the card inside, it's partially filled with air, and cards feel inflated and may slip sometimes. After some time, the sleeve adapts to the card and they do not slip anymore.

Also, do not rely on sleeves that feel very plastic in the back side. They will stack better and never slip, but they keep absorbing grease from your fingers until they get so sticky that you have trouble shuffling them.

Sleeves that feel smoother on their back (as the Ultra-Pro solids) work better. They may slip sometimes when they're new, but they never get sticky.
