    R2-EQ got a reaction from Forensicus in How To Sleeve the Large Cards?   
    I dropped by the Business Depot and they will laminate anything that fits onto a regular sheet of paper for $2 (Canadian). I can fit 2 hero cards per sheet, so that will cost $6 plus tax. Pretty cheap and good solution I think.
     
    Is there anything bad with laminating cards?

    I think you have a decent grasp on the dice. Green is balanced, and red/yellow/blue are high damage/surge/accuracy, respectively. As far as I can tell, there is sort of a hierarchy for each stat.
     
    Damage: Red>Green>Blue>Yellow
    Surge: Yellow>Green>Blue>=Red (from what I've seen, Blue is either slightly higher surge than Red, or they're equal)
    Accuracy: Blue>Green>Yellow (no Red)
     
    For IG-88 and General Weiss (3 dice of your choice, no more than 2 of a single color), it depends so much on the situation. If I'm not worried about range, because I'm 3 spaces or closer, with IG-88, and I'm not damaged, I probably roll Red/Green to deal maximum damage. Red can hit for up to 3, and with IG-88's surge for +2 damage, the green is either 2 or 3 damage, effectively.
     
    With 2 green and no accuracy bonuses, you're guaranteed to hit out to range 2, and you have a 75 percent chance of getting at least 3 accuracy. You only have a 42 percent chance of getting 4 or more accuracy, so I'd  say the ideal range for Green/Green is 3 spaces or less (if the figures I've been seeing for the dice are correct).

    R2-EQ got a reaction from KennedyHawk2 in Do I need to Sleeve the cards?   
    After reading this I laughed. You are right, and I regret not buying the sleeves now. I sleeve all my X-wing cards but don't really need to as I am the only guy touching them. However, in this game there will be FOUR other guys playing. I wish I had considered that sooner.
     
    Time to sleeve up!

    R2-EQ reacted to thereisnotry in Do I need to Sleeve the cards?   
    Alas, to sleeve or not to sleeve...that is the question.
     
    Personally, whenever I buy a premium game like this, which will see a lot of play and is very expensive to replace, I just tend to go the extra mile and pay for the sleeves/protectors/whatever is necessary to really store and transport it well.  I find that a lot of gamers are like this...that's probably because a lot of gamers are OCD, like me.  Or I'm like them.  Whatever.
     
    Anyway, I think it comes down to WHO will be playing the game and using the components.  I have 4 kids (aged 6-11) who can't wait to play, so it's obvious that the sleeves will pay for themselves.  Who will you be playing with?  Are your gaming buddies careful and respectful with your stuff?  If so, you might not need the extra protection.  Or are they the kind of guys who are kinda careless--eating chips and cheesies and touching your game pieces/cards with greasy hands?  I think these are important considerations to make when getting into a game as big as Imperial Assault.
     
    Whatever you choose, I hope your copy of the game brings hundreds of hours of awesomeness to you and yours!

    It's been a while in the making but I've finally set up a website for us Canadians who love Star Wars and X-Wing. Before now there is no place that highlights the Canadian scene.

    I'm running an article contest. Best article wins my custom painted Jek Porkins Model. Anyone can enter, Americans are very welcome to post and comment. Indeed your National Champ came up here and stole our Kingston Regional. He beat me in the final four, but it was a pleasure to loose to him, he's a great guy.

    Anyway, as I've said best article wins. I will pay shipping to anywhere in Canada, but if you are an American and win the contest, you pay the shipping costs.
