These cards are 67mm x 67mm by measurements. I can't find any sleeves to fit. I'm sure I got a link to a place that sold them but I can't find it now.

I see 65mm x 65mm and 70mm x 70mm

Was it one of those you ordered? How did they fit? What is the quality/thickness like?

Another alternative is this e-bay seller from Thailand:

w w w.ebay.com/sch/tbg_shop/m.html

He has got 70x70 mm sleeves as well as a few other non-standard sizes.

Edit: BGG gets totally weird when I type in the URL. Had to insert the blank spaces to get around it.

I got some 70x70mm UltraPro sleeves from CoolStuffInc. They are a little big, but the sleeve has a good thickness and I haven't had much of any slipping.

What are the actual dimensions of the El Grande cards? My copy hasn't arrived yet, but I have found these:

http://www.boardgameextras.co.uk/item.php?id=1942&name=Swan+...

Is 67mm sufficient? Civilisation card size.

This link has the card sizes and sleeves that work from LOTS of different manufacturers

Thanks for the link, Ken, but El Grande does not appear to be listed. I went for these 69mmx69mm in the end:

Don, it depends which version of the game you have. If it's the original, the sleeves you bought are the right size for some (but not all) the cards, as there are two different sizes in the game. But the newer Big Box has different card sizes.

There's a very useful geeklist: https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/164572/item/2909828#item2...

The link takes you to the entry for El Grande, and just below that is the entry for the Big Box.


(Edit: just noticed that this is the same geeklist that Ken linked to! But never mind, my link is directly to El Grande in the list, so still useful. blush)

Yeah it's a alphabetizing thing. El in Spanish is The, so it's ingored for alphabitizing. You'll find in on page 47 of that link. Should have remembered that from when I went looking.

Thanks guys, it's the early German SDJ version, and I only want to sleeve the large square cards so that I can insert English printouts. I figure 69x69 should be good.

Edit: The 69mm x 69mm sleeves are, indeed, good
