This Summer: board game sleeves from Fantasy Flight Supply
Fantasy Flight Supply | Published 15 July 2009



This Summer, Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce its line of game accessories: Fantasy Flight Supply. The first wave of products to protect and customize your games will be board game-specific card sleeves. As the line expands, more accessories will be available to enhance your boardgaming experience.

The Fantasy Flight Supply line launches with eleven products to protect your games from accidents as well as the regular handling of cards that eventually wears them out. There are five sizes of board game sleeves, created to fit the majority of standard-sized cards in both American and European sizes.

All Fantasy Flight Supply board game sleeves come in packs of 50 and are made from clear 100 micron, PVC-free, acid-free, polypropylene plastic. All sleeves fit snugly for easy shuffling and handling of cards. Every effort has been made to make determining what size sleeve you need to protect your games easy by color coding all packs and displays of Fantasy Flight Supply sleeves. The five sizes of board game are listed below, with their measurements and package color coding.



Name Card Size in Inches Card Size in Millimeters Color Code
Mini American 1 5/8 X 2 1/2 IN 41 X 63 MM Yellow
Mini European 1 11/16 X 2 5/8 IN 44 X 68 MM Red
Standard American 2 1/4 X 3 1/2 IN 56 X 87 MM Green
Standard European 2 5/16 X 3 9/16 IN 59 X 92 MM Purple
Standard Card Game 2 1/2 X 3 1/2 IN 63.5X 88 MM Gray

For more information on determining what size sleeves will fit your games best and how many you will need to completely sleeve your Fantasy Flight games, visit our Fantasy Flight Supply Description Page

In addition to the board game sleeves, Fantasy Flight Supply also launches with a line of Art Sleeves. These sleeves, created to fit your standard-size card game cards (such as for LCGs and CCGs), feature beautiful art pieces from Fantasy Flight Games' collection on the backs of the sleeves. These art sleeves let you both protect your cards with the same high-quality material as the board game sleeves and let you customize your deck with unique game art.

Watch our Fantasy Flight Supply Support Page for updates as new art sleeves are added to the line.

As the Fantasy Flight Supply line expands, you will find a complete line of game-specific accessories that will protect your games, allow you to customize them, and enhance your overall gaming experience. This Summer, protect your games with Fantasy Flight Supply sleeves!

I like Cardsleeves, they protect the illustrations on my cards, and protects them from accidents,

But, they could sell 100 per package, for that price,

At least for the "simple" ones

When I read the title, for some reason I instantly thought that these were huge sleeves for the Boards themselves (which I thought would be sort of silly).

Finally! The pleas of all anal retentive sleevers everywhere have been answered!

My only concern is if these will be penny sleeves. The material/thickness or whatever it is of CCG sleeves ruins cards, and I certainly won't put my boardgame cards into anything other than penny sleeves. So if these aren't penny sleeves, here's hoping that the promised upcoming products includes them.

Well, Mayday Games sure doesn't do a good job advertising their product my store doesn't carry them because I've never heard of them before. And, quite frankly, I'm going to stock the FFG sleeves because I need them, and my customers need them, and I'd much rather have thicker sleeves (like the Dragon Shields clear minis, which I've been using for the "euro" cards). My BSG skill cards are already worn out from over 100 games (literally) and the Arkham cards are starting to wear down as well.

Also, the art sleeves are fantastic! I can't wait to get my hands on the Cthulhu and Jaime sleeves, and hope there are plenty more to come.

Now if you could also start making playmats...

Thank you FFG!

 Nice!  I guess Mayday Games sleeves were getting too popular for everyone to ignore for too long.  We have had the euro size sleeve for 6+ months and the mini euro size sleeve for 3+ months.  I'm just glad these are way too thick!  100 microns?  Good luck stacking your cards!

Also, does this mean that the dragon shields (which I ADORE) are going away? just wondering?
