Hi everyone, 

I'm looking for L5R tournament legal card sleeves. My first thought was Dragonshield even though I mostly found 100x packs, but I wonder if there isn't any L5R themed ones? 

Other than being matte or at least not being able to see through, is there other considerations I should have in regards to sleeves to avoid trouble at a Kotei? 

 

Thanks !

There should be some official sleeves coming down the pipeline in the next few months that are sleeves with the card backs on them, so they'll look like unsleeved cards. I haven't tried them yet obviously, so we'll see if they are any better than the standard Ultra Pro art-backed sleeves, but iirc they are FF official so they should be better quality.

My experience using FFG sleeves with SWLCG was that their sleeves were actually just slightly on the large side and that the edges/corners tended to get beat up pretty easily.  I've had much more luck with Dragonshield sleeves for longevity.

You can get Dragonshields in 50 packs.  They are less common in stores, but if you look at the online sites you should be able to find them.

My experience with art sleeves is that they don't hold up as well.

Btw, you need different sleeves for your dynasty and conflict deck (either different colors or different art). You are not required to sleeve the other cards (provinces, stronghold and role), but if you do, FFG recommends using different sleeves from both decks.

Yeah that's what I do because I tended to shuffle them with my Dynasty Deck ^^

The official art sleeves were announced in September, but all reference to them has been removed form the FFG site.

There are sleeves for the top 16 at Elemental Championships.
