I bought this to play over christmas with family. I played 7 games and the cards are just falling apart. They are splitting down the middle and seperating. Very disappointing because it was my favorite new game of the batch I purchased.

I've played 14 games with my copy and the cards are fine insofar as them not splitting.

However, I agree with you that the quality of the card stock kind of sucks. I did buy sleeves for them (though unsleeved them, hoping to soften them up with some more plays). Just generic baseball card type sleeves (I found mine in Hastings' trading cards section) will fit them well.

It sounds like you are pretty hard on your games. I've played at least 10 games of Battle Line and the cards are still like new.

I had the same issue with the cards. Maybe there are multiple editions with different card quality. I had to sleeve them to be able to shuffle Them with no troubles.

This must be the case. We're at about 60 plays, and other than (still) being too stiff to shuffle easily, the cards are holding up really well. No sleeves.
