Since some people were asking here is a video to go over the components of the new Black Box edition of Glory to Rome. At one point in the video I say, "sleeving should not be an option." I meant to say, "sleeving should not be a problem." Sorry for the confusion. I personally do not plan on sleeving my copy. The cardstock is fantastic to the touch and feels very similar to high quality paper playing cards. If anyone has any other questions I didn't cover let me know.
