With all the shuffling involved in deck building games I like to sleeve my cards. Does anyone know if the provided insert works with sleeved cards?

I prefer Fantasy Flight Games sleeves myself, as they're the sleeves I used for the DC Comics Deck Building Game. The insert in general is pretty bad, too tight for sleeved cards, too loose without them.

What I do is cut off the corners of the slots in the inserts so the corners of the sleeves don't bend when you put them in. I also found the slots themselves were so tight to need to push the cards down into their slots for some of the stacks, which I alleviated by cutting up the slot a little more to let the cards breathe. It's a bit of a pain, but they now fit pretty well.

My copy holds the cards in penny sleeves just fine. Not sure what everyone is complaining about.

B/c penny sleeves are basically garbage IMHO. To use real sleeves requires work like what LunarKnite said. I think I might try what he did tho.

I used the LOTR LCG FF sleeves and they looks awesome with the set. I currently have them all in a small deck box (less the 1$ at FLGS) but if I can make them fit in the box with some work I would rather do that.

Thanks LK for the idea.

penny sleeves and mayday premium fit the insert (although premium are pretty tight and have no room for expansions).
I hope crypto is hearing the feedback about this insert now with 2 games (DC) the expansions need to be MUCH better.
