Anyone know if a version of tichu exist with plastic cards? Me and my group play a lot of tichu and the paper cards can't resist our addiction for long.
The most common solution for this problem is to buy plastic sleeves for your cards.
According to http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/102880/item/1989496#item19...
you should get these sizes from these various manufacturers.
Number of Cards: 56
Arcane Tinmen Sleeve Size: Mini (AT-10101)
Fantasy Flight Sleeve Size: Standard American 2 1/4" x 3 1/2" (56x87 MM)
Mayday Sleeve Size: Standard USA Game 56 x 87 mm
Swan Panasia Sleeve Size: SWN-020
Ultra Pro Sleeve Size: Small Size 62 x 89 mm
I strongly recommend Arcane Tinmen and Swan PanAsia sleeves.
