Clear sleeves are now banned from use in the 2011 Open Polish Championship to be held in Cracow on 24.09.2011.

From the Champiosnhip Rules available from http://www.galaktikon.pl/index.php/2011-08-28-11-21-33

Quote:
Wszystkie karty wykorzystywane w taliach turniejowych muszą być okryte nieprzezroczystymi protektorami.

All cards used in tournament decks must be covered in nontransparent card protectors.

The same happened with Jyhad/V:TES because the card backs were different between editions. Maybe the print runs are sufficiently different to warrant opaque sleeves.

You could EASILY mark cards. Sad, but true. Opaque sleeves eliminate that possibility.

Sure you can.

But it's easier to identify on a solid color than on a card with a design.

This rule is not new. Every major CCG tourney implements it.

Does it say you have to use solid colored sleeves?

I'm not sure. But many tournaments implement the following rule in addition:

Before sleeving their cards, players should always shuffle their deck and shuffle the pack of card sleeves. This will help prevent noticeable patterns in the event the sleeves have any kind of factory markings.

At a guess, it stops cards with variations in the backs from being identifiable, even in sleeves, since color drift happens often enough within a print run as well as in different runs, so clear sleeves would still allow for that.

Add in shuffling the sleeves and the deck before sleeving and it makes sense that this way you cannot prepare a deck in advance for cheating.

Too sad there a re people willing to go to any extent just for winning

I have a question. I´m from south america and recently started playing this game with a friend,m but there aren't any tournaments in here. How's this game health going? I mean, is there a growing community, tournaments and, generally speaking, interest in the game?
