      Upcoming Changes to the Fantasy Flight Games Forums   01/20/2017

      Hello Fantasy Flight Games forum community!   This week, we will be making some important changes to your Fantasy Flight Games community account and the way that you log into the Fantasy Flight Games community forums and web store.   We have been working hard to integrate with the rest of the Asmodee group, and we are happy to announce a unified way to access all the websites and apps made by Fantasy Flight Games, Days of Wonder, and Asmodee!   For most users, nothing will change: you will still log into the Fantasy Flight Games forums using your current login name and password. Only the login user interface will be new.   For a few users, your credentials might be slightly changed. For example, this could happen to users who have both a Fantasy Flight Games and Days of Wonder account, or in the case of conflicting login names across platforms. When these situations occur, special e-mails will be sent to those users with an easy explanation about those changes and what steps to take next. For any of you receiving those e-mails, please make sure to follow the instructions carefully.   Remember, official communications from Fantasy Flight Games or Asmodee.Net will never ask for your password.   What are the benefits for you as a player? Using a unified account to access all of our web services and apps makes your life simpler. Over time, you will see new features emerging, such as keeping all of your friends under a single account, finding friends easily in apps with online play, or developing your personal profile by adding to your board games collection. These are just some of the features that you will see during the next year, once this important technical step is complete.   Important note: The migration of the forums to our new system will take place on Tuesday, January 24th. The forums will be offline for about two hours during that time. Once the migration is complete, older forum posts may look strange for up to 24 hours as we rebuild them in our new system.   We can’t wait to connect our board game communities and build bridges between universes, game systems, players, events, groups, game clubs, and more! This is only the first step in bringing people and games closer together. For more information, read our FAQ at https://asmodee.helpshift.com/a/asmodee-net/.   Best regards,   The Fantasy Flight Games Team

Thanks, cleat64

If you can get Arcane Tinmen sleeves, two packs of Medium size will do, while if you go Mayday, you'll have to do some research as to what the actual sleeves you need are (their card size listing doesn't generally equal what FFG states).

Hi

First point, the cards MUST be protected, after two solo games without sleeves, the card began to suffer, it is not the quality of the card, but they must be manipulated often in the game, and they are relatively thin. 

I've read a lot of post, here and at Edge (Europe distributor), the fact is the FFG sleeves seems ok (the green one), but after you have difficulties to put them back in the box, obviously with the two expansions.

For my part, I will try MaydayGames cards sleeves : "Premium USA Chimera Game Sleeves" or "USA Chimera Games Sleeves" (orange color code) they are both 57.5 x 89 mm the primera are sold in pack of 50 and Standard in pack of 100. The premium are 125% thicker according to MaydayGames, so I've ordered the standard one to make the card going to the box.

That's important that with MaydayGames tou take the Chimera (orange color code 57.5x89mm) and not the Standard USA (purple color code 56x89mm), I've ordered the Standard USA for the game Bohnanza (that's the recommended ones for this games according to MaydayGames), and the Space Hulk Death Angel cards are a little larger than the Bohnanza card.

Hope it helps

I will take you in touch, I'm waiting for the two expansions and the card sleeves

I keep everything in the DA box, lid is slightly up, but only slightly. Actually, I think the die is the biggest issue. No insert, I have three stacks of cards, with only the Event cards in the center stack. This leaves enough empty space to put the ziplock with the Support tokens and the die on top of them and not have them press against the lid or the be forced against the Event deck. No die and I could syphon off some of the cards from the other two stacks to get the lid down as normal.

You can also use sleeves form Mayday. I get mine from e-bay. 57,5x89mm Orange ones. I have almost all my games in sleeves since we use them twice a week. And if you have over a hundred games you'd want to keep them in mint condition. I'm all geek so I tend to be a bit extreme.

 Hi

I bought Standard Mayday sleeves, initialy I took the Orange (USA Chimera Game 57,5x89mm) for Space Hulk : Death Angel, and Purple (USA Game 56x87mm) for the game Bohnanza.

My conclusion is that the purple one work perfectly for Space Hulk, all cards from the original game and its two expansions (print on demand) fit in the original box with the sleeves.

The Orange are ok too, but the purple have exactly the same size. So I would say that it depend on you, if you want to have 1,5mm security up/down the card, go for the orange one, but you will also have 2mm (right/left). If you want sleeves that match perfectly the card, go for the purple.

Be careful, I'm using the standard sleeves, not the premium, because they are thinner, so the card fit in the box.

I will use the Orange for Bohnanza, even if the card are smaller than Space Hulk, but I don't have a box issue, the bos of Bohnanza is far bigger, so it won't be a problem.

Bye

I took your advice and have to state that you are wrong (you are correct in your previous post though!). I bought the purple Mayday cards for Space Hulk and they are such a tight squeeze that it a) bends the cards and b) takes a long time per card to put them in the sleeve.

Luckily, I also have Bohnanza and the purple sleeves fit them perfectly (although the cards no longer fit in the plastic box moulding).

I'll order the Orange sleeves for Space Hulk as per your other post.

 I can confirm that. Mayday Purple sleeves are slightly smaller than the standard Space Hulk card size and, therefore, do not fit easily. I too recommend buying the orange ones (two of them).

I remember when the final extended DVD set of The Return of the King came out for the Lord of the Rings.  They sold the entire Lord of the Rings movies in a nice deluxe box. For those of us with the DVD's already, you could buy the sleeve box for a small amount of change plus S/H.  I hope if they ever make an deluxe release of Death Angel: Space Hulk, they offer the bigger box for sale to those who have the complete set.  Of course, they will release the set with a brand new, never before seen add on deck, and the point will be moot. LOL. 

Yeah, I would buy it again.  LOL

It means that if you wish to use Fantasy Flight card sleeves you need 3 packs of the Standard American Board Game Size 2.25 x 3.5 (56 x 87 mm).  Don't confuse it with the green backing sleeves.  The package top is green and it will say CLEAR SLEEVES on front.

Here is the FFG page on the product www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_news.asp

Geez, I must have been tired when I wrote that post.  Looks like I went off on some strange tangent.  I think I was suggesting that if FFG wanted to release a Death Angel Deluxe box that fitted all the expansion cards - sleeved - I would buy it in a heartbeat.  An empty one, of course.

Thank you so very much!  I was wondering about how I was going to store the core set + expansions after adding sleeves, and this is a nice shortcut.  I'm also kicking around the idea of keeping this game in a specific Pelican case at home (maybe even painting the case to fit the theme), but in the meantime, this will do.   :)
