Malaysia is the biggest Carcassonne nation?

It rather seems that Malaysia has plenty of sleeves in stock since there is not enough domestic demand and they don't sell abroad.  :o

This is the response I received from Swan about their Premium sleeves:

'We have no plan for a premium sleeve of 47x47 because the premium material would be too thick and wide, that would increase the distance between the two tiles, that's why we only have the standard type of 47x47 sleeve.'

I thought they already produced premium sleeves, but he probably means that they're not going to produce any more.

In your answer they don't say that they will not produce more sleeves... In any case, it is rare that they aren't yet available ... It seems that the sleeves of the tiles will disappear ... If it were true, It would be very sad news....

It looks like the standard sleeves are 40 microns thick, and the premium sleeves are 90 microns thick. I have two packs of standard sleeves, and I think the premium would be what I'm looking for. Maybe after this virus goes away, the supply will be better.

Hi,

I have one question about the sleeves' avaibility. Malasyan page aside, are they made sporadically, or can we consider them discontinued? On a Google search I found this blog post (in Spanish: https://carcassonneblog.wordpress.com/tag/carcassonne-sleeves/), saying that they were not made anymore, and it is from 2016, but I have seen some on some shops (not anymore) around last year. I think its weird they'd stop making them, considering they are good for C2, too.

It seems the blog page was updated recently without altering the initial posting date.

I didn't recall this comment from earlier visits, so I tried to access an earlier version with web.archive.org and you can see this comment wasn't there as of April 2017:

http://web.archive.org/web/20170402073437/https://carcassonneblog.wordpress.com/tag/carcassonne-sleeves/

This is the paragraph you are mentioning:

Quote
Lamentablemente en estos momentos no quedan unidades en stock tanto en la web de Swan Panasia como en Smiling Monster Games Shop, siendo el resto de alternativas que tienen sobres a la venta bastante costosas. Esperemos que esta situación sea meramente transitoria y pronto vuelvan a poner nuevas unidades a la venta.

Unfortunately they are currently out of stock on both the Swan Panasia website and the Smiling Monster Games Shop. Other available sites selling sleeves are rather too expensive. We hope that this is just a temporary issue and they are back on stock soon.

Oh, thanks for the info! I hadnt noticed it was an edit... That means is more likely they have been discontinued :( . On the other hand, despite being square and supposedly fit to the milimeter, even after cutting the extra part, they had empty spaces (and only on two sides, weird), so they wasn't a perfect option. Definetly I'm not using the bag anymore, but I think there may exist a better way to preserve our tiles, we just haven't found it yet.

I haven't taken the time to prove this, but I wonder if there's a way to shrink protection onto the tiles and cut anything extra off around the edges. This would take hours to sleeve every tile, but would be worth it.

Perhaps a legal issue... Because they still produced other sleeves for other cards... Maybe asmodee will produce sleeves??? HiG??

I just saw this on Cundco.de, Swan Panasia card sleeves for Paleo (the collaborative game HiG released recently):

https://cundco.de/en/detail/index/sArticle/360/sCategory/36

I wonder if HiG signed any type of agreement with Swan Panasia and there will be some sleeves for Carcassonne tiles on Cundco.de too  ;D

Surely. In fact I'm surprised they didn't sell them before. There's still hope!  :))
