Still curious about what sizes the Various Cards will be.
I'm hoping that they are common sizes like...

Standard Card Game size [2 1/2" x 3 1/2" (63.5 x 88 MM)]
or
Mini American Board Game size [1 5/8" x 2 1/2" (41x63 MM)]

Because several companies already offer a wide range of Protective Sleeves, Binder pages, and Folios for both these sizes.

You can fit the Car Wars Card Game cards in Standard American Board Game sleeves [2 1/4 X 3 1/2 IN (56 X 87mm)] but there very few dedicated storage solutions for these size cards.

I'm also hoping that the card stock is a bit heavier than the Car Wars Card Game cards. Something like the card stock from the Illuminati CCG would be nice.

Definitely not the old INWO stock. Never on my watch.

We'll use our standard stock for the game cards.

I can't remember how the INWO cards felt. What was the problem with them?

They were way too stiff. Made it really hard to shuffle. But they are very durable.

However, would you be shuffling the cards here? Doesn't seem like SOP would be to choose these at random.

There are elements of the game that have been mentioned in the past which might require a deck needing shuffling. The ones in the recent images though don't seem like ones that you'd want to shuffle.

If I might pose a question/thought:

Has any thought been given to making the "design" cards smaller (as in smaller than a Munchkin card... maybe about the size of a Catan resource card)? It seems like you might end up with quite a few of them spread out in your play area, and using a smaller card size might have some merits for keeping the space needed for vehicle information down.

Heck, I can put an entire Classic CW car on a 3" x 5" index car, and still have it be fully readable (even have TH numbers and such).

You should be quite happy when we announce the size of the cards. Images online may be larger than they appear . . .

Stock was _way_ too heavy. We will not use that stock for the Car Wars game.

MageSmiley,
I'm not sure what the Catan card measurements are. Mini American Board Game size [1 5/8" x 2 1/2" (41x63 MM)] is the Fantasy Flight sleeve size for X-wing Upgrades. That's why there are already a lot support products for cards that size.
