Thread: Using Card Sleeves

  1. #101

    I would also like to add the quality of the plastic is A++ very strong material.

    Not like those cheap penny sleeves you can buy 100 count for 75 cents.

    If anyone is going to use the Mayday Euro sleeve, make sure that you get the premium sleeves. The cards stay in those quite nicely and the fit is very similar to that shown for the FFG sleeves. If you get the Mayday regular thickness, the cards won't stay put in the sleeves, they slide around alot. They don't slide out of the premium.

    Cool idea, but it says for orders under $200 they only ship to PO boxes. Wouldn't it kind of suck just to rent one for this? ...Or maybe i'm wrong.

    They look pretty good with some nice prices. I will have to purchase a few sometime.

    I'll be honest, I got sick of the bantering between sleeved mercs and unsleeved mercs. Give the game 3 years and it won't matter. With deck customization, all you're going to know is its a black, fallen kingdom faction deck, and that next card happens to be a grey merc card. sure it eliminates 5 other factions, but you still won't know what expansions he/she has in it.

    As far as other games are considered, the only real reason you are required sleeves is to prevent marking cards.

    --------------------

    Anyways. These are the sleeves I use. They are a perfect fit...and they're clear front and back so they're cheaper then other sleeves generally speaking. The only problem with buying from mayday games is they're a bit more expensive then other places, and they also don't offer this sized sleeve in color

    A little note about sleeves from experience. Brand new sleeves are slippery, slick and "lop-sided." Depending on how high you stack them, they will lean to one side or another depending on static and friction and so on and so forth. Sleeves will be very slick until they've been used a while. play with them, shuffle them. get used to them and you will never go back to "unsleeved" cards again. I promise.

    The biggest things about shuffling sleeved cards is learning to hold your cards looser. The riffle shuffle (or bridge shuffle) is probably one of the harder shuffles to do because you need to wear in your sleeves a bit more then the cards. Sleeves are easier to bend "hot dog" (shuffling along the longer edge) then they are to bend. if you can riffle shuffle the "hot dog" way then that is a good start. I also recommend this way for protecting sleeves.

    A few helpful ways to shuffle sleeved cards if you don't want to pile-shuffle...

    (the only thing wrong with this shuffle) is after A LOT of shuffling you run the risk of ruining card sleeves and tearing them along one side, or tearing the corners off if you're not careful)

    (these are the most common ways i've seen. This guy is kind of monotone, but he does a good job explaining them. The brick shuffle he does a little fast but its still 'there')

    (this one is for fun. this is his own unique system and as you can see, its quite speedy)

    Just wanted to add my thumbs-up to the FFG Euro sleeves. They are the best sleeve I've tried so far (I haven't tried the Mayday ones).

    How do all of these sleeves fit on the premium board? I've heard there is less space causing sleeved cards to overlap.

    I've noticed that and have strongly thought about just taking the cards out of the sleeves as I like the artwork on the back anyway.

    I also really like the the card backs. I'm thinking about taking a chance on these Mayday Chimera sleeves.

    Very tight fit and clear, but with the risk of them not fitting. Worth a try?

    It's not that I've found the cards to not fit, it's just really tight and here is some overlap occasionally

    The link Truth gave us in the first post to Yu-Gi-Oh card sleeves work really well in my opinion. I got a bunch and now my cards are nice and safe.
