Does anyone know how many sleeves, or packs of card sleeves, are needed to sleeve the complete Arkham collection. That is Arkham Horror + all 8 expansions?
At the moment I'm only toying with the idea. I'm a solo gamer and pretty careful with how I handle the cards anyway, so I'm not sure how necessary sleeving is. Any opinions in this issue?
The thought only occured to me last week when I noticed a little bit of wear on few of the monster tokens. They are in a bag together and get jostled around a little, so a bit of scuffing is inevitable. I solved this problem with a pack of 200 coin envelopes that only cost me a few pounds. A very cheap and effective protective measure in my opinion.
Today I started searching for card sleeves and my jaw dropped when I saw the prices! Most sellers are asking somewhere around £1.60 per pack, which sounds very reasonable until you notice the avg. £5.00 delivery charge per pack!
To put it into perspective you could buy a brand new mint copy of Arkham for the cost of a mere 5 packs of official FFG card sleeves. Yikes!
At the moment I think I will continue to be careful.
