Sorry for this topic bump but I was wondering: Does this game really *need* sleeves? Normally I would sleeve any new game with cards, but in the Board to Death review they says all the components were finished in a layer of plastic (hench the glossiness), and this can take more abuse than a regular game.
Hmm, how many cards are there in the base game and Something Wicked expansion?
I like to sleeve but I think Flying Frogs cards are very durable without sleeves. My set is currently not sleeved.
But the cards in Something Wicked and maybe the web exclusive decks, I forget which ones now, are not the same size as the base game. From what I heard the Coast has the same issue with size as well as having card backs of a noticeable different color.
So if you stick with the core game, I think you can skip sleeving. If the different sized cards in the expansion bugs you or the color variations then you may want to sleeve when you get them.
