      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

wider cards

12 posts in this topic

I just bought my first 2 battle packs (The Silent Forge and Firey Dawn) and noticed that the cards are ever so slightly wider than the core set cards.

Has anyone else noticed this? Are all battle packs/expansion cards this way?

It's only slightly annoying when shuffling and otherwise not an issue. What is the deal witht this?

Yes, it's a known issue. There was a lot of discussion about this when the first battle packs came out. Personally it doesn't bother me because I don't use my cards unsleeved.

 ive figured that problem as well because they are sleeved :x

some cards go in the sleeves with ease, and others need really some effort to get them in the sleeves

Happy DD - I live in the central US.

I heard from some guys that sleeves would fix this issue, but I just don't feel like dropping money on darn near 300 sleeves and counting. That's a few bucks that could o towards the next battle pack. It's not a big issue, I just don't see why they wouldn't make them all the same size.

…unless of course they want you to buy the sleeves…

Don't buy 300+ sleeves, just buy enough for the deck(s) that you're currently using. Also if cost is an issue don't buy sleeves from FFG, the quality's good but there are much cheaper options out there.

Also, sleeving your decks has the added benefit of keeping your cards in good condition for a lot longer.

 and how?

the cards were already printed and trashing all of them ?

and the "wider" is for me like half a milimeter, probably wasn't even recognized til then

and now they stick with the new format.

 

 

or is the wider a bigger difference in your region ?

I do sleeve my cards, but haven't noticed any discernable difference between card heights or widths since the Corruption Cycle. During play I don't notice, but as I put cards that have been edited out of my decks into piles before sorting them back into their battle packs and boxes of origin, you can really see how different the widths are between cards of the first four Corruption Cycle installments/Assault on Ulthuan and the rest of the the game's cards.

I present this as further fuel to the fire of "reprint the Corruption Cycle and AoU in the new 3x format" general request :)
