Apologies if this has already been suggested...

I was chatting about this with customers, and everyone universally agreed that a great addition to the standard info block for a game would be the card counts by card size, preferably with a shorthand for sleeve sizes (standard, euro, euro mini, etc.).

That would be so very helpful, and would help eliminate the "what sleeve size?" posts for so many games.

Just a thought!

Standard sleeve names wouldn't be that helpful, since the companies are all a bit different.

The dimensions of the cards would be great, though! (And would cover every type of card!)

But it keeps getting suggested, and I keep having to make 'card size' threads . . .

You could always add this information in the "More Information" block: useful just the same, without requiring additional coding by the developers.

I would rather have plastic cards so no sleeves are necessary or having the sleeves (and spares) included in the game. Yes, it would be worth it just from a convenience cost.

skelebone pretty much ruled this out in one of the previous threads on it: Re: Please add Card Sleeve sizes under Game Versions

Shameless plug: There is now also Card Sleeve Sizes for Games - A (not yet) comprehensive list of games and what size their cards are.
