Today is the day -- the release of Disney Lorcana: Rise of the Floodborn, the second set for Ravensburger's collectible trading card game. Well, technically its the pre-release.
Rise of the Floodborn doesn't officially release until December 1st, which is when it arrives in big box stores such as Target, Walmart, Amazon, Best Buy and more. Even Ravensburger, the makers of the game, won't be shipping the second set until December 1st. Although it's worth noting that they are opening up pre-orders for the set on Monday.
In any case, today marked the early release of Rise of the Floodborn and if you are on the hunt for the newest cards, you may be wondering where you can find them.
Who is currently selling Disney Lorcana: Rise of the Floodborn
Ravensburger has made a concerted effort to support local game and hobby stores with Disney Lorcana. Like the first set, The First Chapter, Ravensburger is pre-releasing Rise of the Floodborn through local game stores.
I suggest you use Ravensburger's store locator to find local retailers who are selling the game. But make sure you call first to see if they even have any in stock.
Just like The First Chapter, it seems supply is limited for Rise of the Floodborn. And it seems like demand is equally as high, if not higher than when the game first launched. Nothing is worse than driving 30 or 45 minutes to the closest hobby store just to find out they're all sold out.
Unfortunately, the demand for Disney Lorcana, coupled with the limited supply has resulted in a price gouging. It's not only scalpers who are reselling the newest set online for double, sometimes triple the price, but even the local game stores are charging higher than the MSRP.
Although it's not every store, a lot of them are charging "market price." In most cases, this means they are charging whatever the going rate is online. Some of the stores are posting their prices online, while others refuse to reveal their pricing over the phone.
Rise of the Floodborn was also being sold at Disney parks today, but the lines were crazy. It's almost certainly sold out now.
So if you're looking to purchase Rise of the Floodborn before December 1st, you'll likely have to check with your local game and hobby story -- if they haven't also already sold out.
