Some of my intrigue cards were getting some wear, so I decided to sleeve them all. As I figured, they do not fit anymore into the insert. Any suggestions? I'm debating cutting half of the insert out and just sticking in a Plano box, like I did with Arkham, or just doing away with the insert entirely and putting Plano+Deck boxes or something, but I'm (as I'm posting here!) open to ideas. I just don't want to get rid of an otherwise awesome insert.

That is exactly what I did. I cut out the large opening and used a sandwich bag to keep the sleeved cards in. Not pretty, but functional. I use D&D figures as well, and I tuck those under the tray itself. I always sleeve my cards.....

I sleeved with mayday green sleeves. The cards fit back into the insert, just that its a little bit tight. I get some pix for you if you want.

oh if you're willing to and it's not too much trouble, I'd appreciate a picture or two! Though I'm leaning towards cutting out part of the insert, as mentioned above.

Ski-- did you use tuckboxes or boxes from the sleeve manufacturer or just put the cards in bags?

Thanks all!

I just bagged up the sleeved cards and dropped them under the insert (which is easily removed/replaced).

This is a peeve of mine and I'll keep commenting every time I see a post such as this. Why can't the manufacturer's design these preformed trays sized for sleeved cards? LoW has a wonderful insert and I'd never trash it. But it's time to consider repackaging the games components into other containers. My DnDMeeples and sleeved cards deserve better!

Sleeved with mayday non premiums, and then amazing taped together, they fit in the insert fine. Hugo's Amazing tape 6.51 on eBay free shipping, it really is amazing for cards.



Non adhesive





In the insert

If you're worried about ruining the insert, my previous solution was putting the cards in baggies and then lifting up the whole insert and putting the bag of cards under that (in between the gaps). It worked fine. The fit was snug.

I sleeved with Ultra-Pro Pro-Fit sleeves (64mm W x 89mm H), which are a tad smaller than Mayday Green sleeves and they fit perfect!

Small modification to the insert to allow for sleeved cards. Cut out the bottom place holder for the middle section so they can stand on edge.

Yup the Mayday Green non-premium sleeves fit the cards perfectly and still fit in the insert. Thanx for the idea.

Agreed. I used the same Mayday sleeves and they fit back in the insert.

I remove all inserts from boxes and this was no exception. I really liked it, but the third time I had to re-sort the components after transporting this to gamenight (only one time it was actually played) and I had enough. After bagging all components, you could sleeve until the world's end and it would fit.
