C# developer by trade - Gamer by passion...

On the PC I play Action RPG's (just give me D3 already!), Strategy and Hack & Slash games (just give me D3 already!)

Away from the computer I love to play board and card games with friends and family.

I've also dabbled in quite a few CCG's. My personal favorite was EVE: The Second Genesis - which I've followed from it's early beginnings to it's bitter end...

comment Restoring worn-out deck of cards.
Yes. They are gonna get thicker but that's the price you pay. You can still work around that by not using the inlay and storing them directly in the box with elastic bands. Or if you have the time resleeve & unsleeve before & after games...

comment Breaking roads in Settlers of Catan
Absolutely correct. The presence of an other player's road does not prevent you from build a settlement there...

Aside from laminating your cards, card sleeves are your best bet. If the sleeves are rigid enough they also make it a lot easier to shuffle the cards. You can simply split the deck and push the two stacks into each other.
