Huh, interesting.  Perhaps they would be okay with a small game, though I'd bet it would get difficult to keep them aligned in a really big game.  I'm of the mind that if you have Carc tiles you're worried about wearing out then you should just use a proxy for them during friendly gaming.  I certainly have a lot of extra tiles that could stand in, oh yeah!  ;D

I think if you trimmed away the edges, the sleeve would come open.

Ditto!
I've been thinking about getting sleeves for quite sometime.  Without sleeves, I am reluctant to take rarer tiles to other people's place, where they may have drinks on the table, or dirty hands from eating with their fingers.

I think if you trimmed away the edges, the sleeve would come open.

I don't think they mean to cut away the hem or seam - but rather the part of the sealing flap that sticks out past the tile.

Still it's the hem or seam not fitting tightly to the edge of the tile that I can see would keep a separation between the tiles - so the tiles would not butt to one another nicely. I guess it's a trade-off for wanting to protect your valuable tiles.

...where they may have drinks on the table, or dirty hands from eating with their fingers.

Haha - no drinks on the table rule for us - too many bad experiences.  :(
I just drew the perfect tile for my MonKnighThieFarmer!

No drinks or food on the play table for us either. My most important rule. That's why we have sidetables, but I won't allow anything but beverages. I even, though not always, enforce washing their hands before play.  :meeple:

I'm not lazy but the time it would take to cover my complete set would drive me crazy...I mean, I could be spending the time playing Carcassonne!  ;)
