Just wondering -- can anyone who has sleeved their cards suggest a good sleeve size to use for these cards? This is the first game that I have with cards of such size, and some suggestion would be much appreciated!

I used the standard card game size from FF: (gray top)

That's interesting. I tried the Mayday premium card game sleeves and the cards were a bit too big.

I then tried Ultra Pro Magic: the Gathering sleeves and the cards just barely fit.

Maybe I got a mis-cut set of Mayday sleeves. I'll have to try a different pack.

I used Mayday "green" premium sleeves - 63.5mm x 88mm - and they worked fine until I ran out. I switched over to Ultra-Pro 66mm x 91mm sleeves and those work fine too. The Ultra-Pros might even be a little better because the fit isn't quite as tight. I just wish they didn't have the stupid circle hologram on them.

Note that you'll want clear sleeves because the backs of the tech cards matter. I did use different color opaque-backed sleeves for the expansion corporation and CEO cards though.

Sleeves are really nice for this game, as the card looks kinda fragile (to humidity) and have sharp edges

I would suggest using transparent on both side though as the backs carry information (mostly for sorting them after/before a game).

Fortunately I had sleeved MTG decks I not been playing and swapped all cards.
