Sleeved Command Card Storage Tue, 11 June 2013 14:02
Hi there!

I recently sleeved all my command cards to prevent them from deteriorating. (My first set of commad cards really looks terrible after hundreds of games).

I used FFG European board game sleeves which I was told were of high quality. (they are)

The problem is that, piled up, the cards tower twice as high as before and tend to slide around in the top compartement of my storage solution. ( I use a plano 7something).

Now I would like to put them in a deck box of some kind. I tried an Ultra Pro one that holds around 100 cards but the Memoir cards, due to their size when sleeved, don't fit in there.

Does anyone have an idea as to what deck box would hold that many sleeved European sized cards?

Maybe another solution? And yes I tried using elastic bands Very Happy

Since I am not entirely sure whether this is the right forum for the matter I apologize in advance should this thread have to be relocated.

regards Inn-Tent

This is indeed the right forum, so welcome!! Smile I'm sure one of the creative and helpful members of this community will be happy to help you and probably had the same problem before finding a solution.

If I had time, I would design a tuck box for the cards, but I seem to be short on time these days! Has anybody found a way to get more of this precious commodity?! Very Happy

You can design your own tuckboxes here and print them out. That is one solution.

Well I use rubber (elastic) bands, which I know you've tried and apparently don't like. I just stuff them in the pockets of the campaign bag (or whatever it was called).

My kids and I purchased plastic card boxes for our Pokemon cards a few years back and those would probably work, but maybe would not hold overlord decks. I don't know what specific boxes they are, but surely you can buy boxes from the same place you purchased the sleeves. That's what we did.

I printed out custom sized tuck boxes from the link that ad79 mentioned, then I bought a couple of these to put the different decks in.

One box holds my breakthrough deck, winter deck, urban deck and a second command card deck, the other box holds all of the summary cards (without a tuck box).

There are a few different sizes you can get depending on how many cards you want it to hold - I got 2 of the 3" boxes - it's been a great setup for me.

Hello,

I also sleeved my cards, including the BT and OL Command Cards.

Here is where I store them:

I used to sleeve my cards but shuffling them that way was difficult and as you point out they tend to slide when stacked.

Also, of more importance, a friend pointed out that the randomness of cards when in sleeves after being shuffled is in question.

And how is that? If anything I find they can be shuffled more easily. Maybe his sleeves are sticky.

One cannot really get a proper shuffle when the cards are in sleeves (and I do not know how anyone can do this). By this I mean splitting them into two decks and shuffling them that way.

The only way I could shuffle the cards when in sleeves was by holding them in one hand and performing an under over movement of the cards from top to bottom.

We played one game when I did this type of shuffle and my friend noted after he looked over his game report that the same pattern of cards showed up in about the same order before and after the shuffle.

By the way, they were my sleeves and they were more slick than sticky.
