    I don’t normally sleeve cards in my games but I’ve just finished my fourth game of Twilight Struggle and I like it so much I find myself wondering if it will extend the life significantly enough to make it worth while?

    More to the title of my post, quite a few of the cardboard chits are already showing dented corners (even though I’m hardly a barbarian) and starting to de-laminate a bit. Is there any method people have used to protect the chits?

    Ideas?

    There’s a thing called chit clipping which hardcore wargamers do – either with nail clippers or a special corner-clipping machine you can buy. It involves clipping off the corners of square chits. Here’s an article I found about it.

    As for sleeving, it’s definitely a personal choice; some swear by it, some don’t like it. I do it very occasionally for games with decks that see heavy use (eg LCGs, Arctic Scavengers)
