A look at Fantasy Flight Supply's convenient sleeve guide


For over a year, Fantasy Flight Supply has offered a wide variety of board game sleeves to help enhance and protect the cards from your favorite board and card games. Available in a variety of sizes and in packages of 50, Fantasy Flight Supply board game sleeves are made of clear, 100 micron-thick, non-PVC, acid-free polypropylene plastic. This means that the sleeves are durable, difficult to tear or crease, and are free of chemicals that will corrode the cards within the sleeves. The sleeves are also designed to fit cards snugly, to make shuffling and handling easy.

With so many sleeve options available, you may not know where to start. Fortunately, Every new Fantasy Flight product offers a sleeving guide to direct fans toward the right product to fit their needs.

Many of you have already seen this symbol, either on our website or on the back of an FFG product:

These symbols are a quick way to reference how many of which type of sleeves you will need for a given product. This information encompasses all the cards included in a particular product. The colors indicate the size of the sleeve while the number indicates how many packages of that type are needed to fully sleeve the game’s cards.

In the example above (from the Game Master’s Vault for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay), two packs of the Standard American Board Game Sleeves (green package) and three packs of the Mini American Board Game Sleeves (yellow package) would give you enough sleeves for full protection. You can also find this helpful sleeving information in the product descriptions of each game's website.

Look for this guide on all Fantasy Flight Games releases so you know which sleeves you’ll need to protect and enhance your game!
