Games which I love, I try to care for. So, even though some might say it does not make sense (when does love ever make sense?), I'd like to sleeve the 76 card deck.

Any suggestions which cards might fit? I tried the Fantasy Flight Games's standard european & standard amercian, but both are too small...

Warlord beats Troll, Troll beats Elf, Elf beats Water Sprite, and basically everything else beats Enchanted Bunny.

I used Ultra-Pro PRO-FIT sleeves 64mm x 89mm (100 pk). They fit perfectly as you can see!



cool

7,30 EUR! surprise

My 100 pack from my FLGS is only 2,25 EUR. I'll drop a pack in our TH box for Thomas.

Yes, but the quality is SIGNIFICANTLY different! Yours are very thin sleeves, I'm sure. Mine are very sturdy. I've used them for years while still playing TCGs. I really hate the cheap, thin sleeves, because after a while they tend to stick to each other. In my opinion the shuffling with the "expensive" sleeves is much, much easier... But, as I said, thats only my opinion...

Even though Ultra-Pro are not as thick as Dragon Shield, they are much thicker than Mayday. I have no problem with them sticking. They actually slide very well... almost too well. When playing last, one of the players tried picking up the deck and the cards slid out from the middle. Luckily the game had started, but we still had to re-construct the deck.

Well, TCG decks of course will be much more shuffled and played as a boardgame deck (except Dominion ^^).
Still up to Tommy, I just wanted to add my recommendation.

You know, when you _really_ love your game, only the BEST is good enough!

Oh, only for the completion:

Those are the gaming card sleeves from FFG. They are not bad, too. Almost as stury as the Dragon Shields. Price is for 50 pc, so a bit cheaper.

This way you can try them for free. I always have extra packs on hand. If they're not to your preference, you can always buy others.

Sorry that Tom and I jacked your thread!

...not really! laugh

You have to, at least from a distance, look as if you know what you're doing, and I can manage that.

I use the same that Robert uses. They are of very good quality and I am very freak about the protection of my games.

I used FFG's "Standard Card Game" size (2 1/2" x 3 1/2") and they fit just fine.
