The big ones fit in these:

You will need two packages.

They fit very well and the sleeves are of very good quality.

I've read that those sleeves can be a bit snug and bow the cards, is that true?

That's true for many of the sleeves I used. The cards bent ever so slightly.
I just put all sleeved cards under a heavy game box (shouldn't be very hard to come by ) for a few days to smooth them before playing. Now they're perfect.

hi
thanks for the replies but for the cost of the sleeves and postage, I've decided to dare I say it (dare! dare!) laminate the larger cards.

I got 6 large cards per laminate sheet and so it cost me less than £2 to laminate the cards as opposed to about £12 if I bought 2 packs of the sleeves.

I've cut them out with a scalpel and a straight metal rule and they are perfect for my needs.

I used sleeves for the smaller cards as I had a load from other FFG games left over
