Just wanted to say that I'm annoyed about the difference in card size from the master set and previous set(s?) (I only have one with cave gobbs and guild dwarves). The master set has slightly broader cards which made me bend a card when trying to put it in a sleeve (as well as buying 300 sleeves that I can't use, not right now anyways). Juat wanted to complain about that, now I just need to find some bigger sleeves and then I'm gonna play this one.

Yeah none of us are happy about it, but Colby is just getting started and had to switch printers I believe which ended up causing a variation in card size.

I've only got the Master Set, and I plan to hold off on purchasing the older faction/reinforcement decks until they are reprinted at the new size (assuming they will be). Can anyone tell me what factions/reinforcement packs I'm safe to buy (i.e., sets that are identical in size to the Master Set cards)?

Not having played this game before - does it matter if the decks are different sizes?

Is there an option to mix in cards from various decks to make one play-deck?

It only matters if the reinforcement packs (additional cards for use in faction decks) have different size cards from the base faction decks - a good point worth adding. I don't sleeve cards, and it's hard to get a good shuffle with different sized cards. Also, I'm not in any hurry to get all the faction decks, so I don't mind waiting.

I'd be interested in knowing the answer to this as well. I just started playing this game a week ago and just purchased the Cloaks, Vanguards, and Fallen Kingdom factions off Ebay. Hoping they're the same size as the Master Set cards I have. If not, I'll be a little disappointed. I'm waiting for the reprint on the two starter sets, which I'm sure will have the same size.

Loving this game though! It's incredibly addictive.

Is there a way to detect the "new starters" compared to the old? Are the box sized differently? Are the old ones so old that the chances of there being old still available almost zero?
