Sounds good. I was going by the sizes of some earlier ones.

I tend to name components from games rather than saying specific sizes - I've found it's easier for most people to envision what I'm talking about.

I measured my Catan cards.
They came out 2.25 x 3.25. Which would make them a bit big. I seem to recall some that were smaller but I don'tknow the size. I would guess they might have been Mini Euro Board Game Size (45mm x 68mm). I could live with cards that size, but keeping the sleeves separate from the x-wing sleeves would be annoying and since they're a bit larger, none of the binder pages would store them well.

Is there a list of background material that has been released for the new edition? What issues of Pyramid do I need?

Editing to partially answer my own Question...
From RogerBW's PYRAMID Volume Three Index thread...

#85: Cutting Edge (November 2015)
• Short Bursts: White Gold (Matt Riggsby)
#86: Organizations (December 2015)
• Short Bursts: Muckleshoot (Matt Riggsby)
#87: Low Tech III (January 2016)
• Short Bursts: Ten Minutes in October (Steven Marsh)
#88: The End Is Nigh (February 2016)
• Short Bursts: Rapid Raj (Matt Riggsby)
#89: Alternate Dungeons 2 (March 2016)
• Short Bursts: Five Best Places to Nearly Get Killed Before You Die! (Matt Riggsby)
#90: After the End (April 2016)
• Short Bursts: Good Old Days (Matt Riggsby)
#91: Thaumatology IV (May 2016)
• Short Bursts: Tech Support (Matt Riggsby)
#92: Zombies (June 2016)

#93: Cops and Lawyers (July 2016)
• Short Bursts: A Word From Our Sponsor (Matt Riggsby)
#94: Spaceships III (August 2016)
• Short Bursts: Rematch (Matt Riggsby)

Does anyone know of any I missed? Or any that weren't in Pyramid?

So what's the overall flavor of the new background, and how does it compare to the classic campaign world?

We can find out for $79.90 ;) {10 issues at 7.99 each}

Plus we can learn way too much about some RPG system called GURPS.
[JK] Generic Underwhelming* Roll Playing System. [/JK]
They did have an Autoduel Supplement and one for Ogre.
If you are a Role Player, it's a great *Universal system.

Since I have no interest in Magic or Dragons in Role Playing (and very little interest in Role Playing at all) the 7.99 per issue price for Pyramid feels a bit steep. There is just one Car Wars article in each issue (and possibly 1 or 2 amusing Space or Post Apoc articles in the 10 total).

I would however be willing to Pony Up $10-15 if someone at SJGames would collect just the 6th edition Car Wars bits from Pyramid into 1 PDF.

...assuming that the world written about in those vignettes is still the world they intend to publish.

I have to admit that I'm a bit curious how prevalent Car Wars articles would need to be in Pyramid for people here to pick up the issue. One article? Two? Would never buy one? (Mods, that might be worth considering a poll of some sort).

Agree 100%! Or even a PDF that updates over time.
