What do you guys think of the size of the cards? I was really looking forward to getting this game but after looking at the launch party video and seeing how huge the cards are Im not so sure I want it.

I like the larger cards. Personally size doesn't matter to me anyway.
Especially when the art is very well done.

You want to try and read tiny print on small cards while drunk?

True! And wow, that's a big launch party. Our launch parties are like 3 guys!

Valid point, though I have never had a problem with that.

I did not realize how big the cards would be, but their size does not bother me. I figure its easier to read when drunk and I get to enjoy the art even more!

True.

@Fubarbox I remember you from the kickstarter comments page, have you been to the launch party? (Nice game collection btw...!)

@MrLeeRobot I really wanted to go to the launch party ( only a 5hr drive), But because of everything going on for the holidays, I couldn't make the time. If I had it to do all over again I would go so that I made sure I would have the game for the holidays lol. Thank you about the collection. That reminds me I need to update my list a little. I am still in the phase of trying everything I can and deciding what I enjoy most:o)

I've looked at all the major sleeve manufacturers and have yet to find a company that produces a sleeve to fit this size of card. If someone knows of one please correct me.

I think I'll wait a month or so and if no one else has a solution I'll just laminate mine individually. It's not my preferred solution but there's absolutely no way I'm bringing this, a drinking game made of paper, to the table without some kind of protection.

With cards of this size you are more likely going to have to laminate before you inebriate.

It will probably be the better option with the foreseen occasional party foul.

I have already had two spills on my cards. And not just a minor drip or a card placed on a wet spot on the table. A whole beer in a mug was knocked over on the cards and after a few minutes of yelling we dried off the cards and they all seem fine. They are made out of a nice material, but yes I asked Jasn Painter about the sleeves on his kickstarter page and he said he is in talks with a third party to make sleeves and they will be sold on the drunkquest website, once it is finally launched.

Best I can find other than waiting for them to custom make some.

Hey guys,

If you are a resident of the UK, I found these on Amazon . They do the job pretty well as there is a little bit of space on either side of the card and at the top. Not enough to cause any issues though.

I think they are an American company so for all my fellow drunk questers across the pond, I am sure you will be able to pick some up on the internets or your local game/hobby shop.

Anyone have any luck on this, other than laminating? I'm running this game at a con in October and I'm a little leery of my cards getting ruined. It's not like this is an easy to find game to replace cards with.

Never mind, I actually contacted DrunkQuest directly and they have sleeves. I order enough to cover my game and the expansion.
