Sleeving

Recommended Posts

I sleeve my entire collection using the FFG clear sleeves.  I can't stand cards getting dirty.  I have my entire Arkham and Lord of the Rings collections sleeved too.  I guess I'll have to get some opaque sleeves if I go to any larger tournaments, but that's okay.

I tend to play L5R in a pub, so with the increased risk of liquid going everywhere, I double sleeve my cards.

When they're not in use they live in a binder, and generally, if a card has been out and is therefore double sleeved, I leave the inner sleeve on it when I return it to it's page.

Have to say, this game has devoured folder space far, far faster than any other LCG I've played before.  Normally I don't have to think about moving to faction-specific folders until after the deluxe sets happen.

I only sleeve the deck I use. I considered sleeving all the cards, but then I have the problem of some sleeves looking old and use while others look pristine and new (for the cards I dont usually use), and that can give away information to the opponent (plus I cant stand them looking different). Maybe its just my sleeves, though, and with other sleeves this doesnt happen

I sleeve everything in Dragon Shields: clear matte for provinces, ivory matte for dynasty, and pink matte for conflict.

For now the roles are in white.

I may put a deck in only clears ... but as of now I don't have one that I leave assembled.

Just the decks. I use Ultro Pro Eclipse and/or FFG Clears. After sleeved, throw my deck(s) in a clear Dragon Shield deck box. Big ol' binder for the rest of the collection.

i have sleeved all my cards so far and stored in binder pages.

all clan dynastie cards in there clan color in ultra pro eclips and all the conflict cards in ultra pro exlips white. strongholds all in black sleeves. But this is getting a bit out of hand i must say so after the first cycle i might just stop sleeving them.

It kind of boggles me how people use the same sleeve for everything. Economically makes sense but for me, each Clan must have their own two colours, preferably relating to their old colours in oL5R.

It’s not economics, it’s having to re-sleeve every time you change decks. I mean, I have just so many Assassination or For Shame!, I have to change them from my Phoenix deck to my Crane deck if I want to try a new deck, and that’s not counting if I want to change the influence clan. 

All in all, I change from clan to clan and re-sleeving is a pain in the booty.

I sleeved my main deck in colored sleeves. Then all the neutral left and the clan cards in clear sleeves. Makes it easier to build deck quickly. Like, let's do Crane tonight, pick the sleeved cranes, pick the sleeved neutral needed, make deck, play. EZ.

I have my collection sleeved in the FFG clear sleeves because I really like the card backs.  Since I need opaque sleeves for tournaments I bought some art sleeves; my dynasty deck will be a bowl of ramen and my conflict is a dancing shark.  I am hoping the ridiculousness of the shark will be distracting!

I always sleeve each deck separately and unsleeve the cards when they are removed from a deck. I also double sleeve with Dragon Shield's perfect fit smoke back sleeves and I do leave those on, so any card that has been in a deck is sort of sleeved. When sleeving up a new deck I give preference to already sleeved then sleeve any that aren't already in the Perfect Fits. 

I find sleeving/unsleeving decks to be relaxing and meditative so I don't mind doing it every time I build a new deck. I occasionally resleeve an entire deck concurrently with making changes for the same reason. It relaxes me.

I've sleeved all of my cards (3x Core + each Expansion) in Ultra Pro Eclipse. At £7 for 80 though it's getting to be very expensive and had I thought it through beforehand I'd have probably just bought enough for a couple of decks and only sleeved what I was actually using.

I've spent as much on sleeves at this point as I did on the three Core Sets, but I should have enough now to cover the remaining three Expansions. I'm hoping it won't feel so bad when there's only one Expansion per month coming out.

I've sleeved my two decks (different colours each) of my main clan and of my test clan (Dragon). 

The rest of the cards is in a Dawn of the Empire binder (which will be full after the first cycle already :-O), sorted by clan (dynasty cards first, then conflict cards). Luckily, I've got another one.

Just decks for me.  I like having decks with different color combinations.

Same here for me.

Though the conflict decks are sleeved with Red Sleeves.

All conflicts in a neutral color (grey or black, I have both an am undecided). Dynasty cards that are part of a deck are sleeved in clan appropriate colours. Unused dynasty unsleeved. Holdings/SHs/Role in clears.

For dynasty, having exactly 40 sleeves makes keeping up with deck count easier. Plus I like having clan appropriate schemes to my sleeves (as opposed as to all decks same 2 colours)

For conflict, due to splash and more neutral cards generally being used and swapped between decks, everything sleeved in neutral colour works out better.

I wish the clear/semi-transparent sleeves were tourney legal, would totally go that route, the cards backs look so cool :-(
