Disney Lorcana: The First Chapter, the very first set for Ravensburger's collectible trading card game, is returning to shopDisney this week. Since Disney Lorcana first launched in September, The First Chapter has been nearly impossible to find in stores.
Thankfully, it seems Ravensburger's reprint of the set is finally starting to arrive. I've personally seen booster packs for The First Chapter at various mass retailers, like Target and Walmart, but they do still seem to sell out quickly.
If you've been unlucky with your hunt, then you may want to check in with shopDisney this Friday as the online store will have a restock of The First Chapter. Here's everything you need to know!
Everything you need to know about The First Chapter restock on shopDisney
For starters, the restock will take place on Friday, December 22, so mark your calendars.
The site doesn't say exactly when you'll be able to purchase cards, but based on previous set drops, we can expect availability to go live at 3:00 a.m. ET / 12:00 a.m. PT on Friday, Deccember 22. This hasn't been confirmed by Disney, but it's when sales for Rise of the Floodborn went live on shopDisney. This is also typically when new items become available for purchase on the site.
What products from The First Chapter will be available?
Based on the images and details on shopDisney's announcement, we can expect the following items from The First Chapter to be available for purchase:
Disney Lorcana Trading Card Game The First Chapter Booster Tray ($143.99)
The booster tray comes with 24 booster packs. Each pack contains 12 cards. This is perfect if trying to build out your decks or just trying to collect every card in the set, but just be prepared for lots of Common card duplicates.
Disney Lorcana Trading Card Game The First Chapter Gift Set ($29.99)
The Gift Set comes with four randomized booster packs plus two oversized foil cards featuring Hades – King of Olympus and Mulan – Imperial Soldier.
Disney Lorcana Trading Card Game Starter Decks ($16.99)
It looks like all three Starter Decks from The First Chapter -- Emerald/Ruby (Cruella De Vil & Aladdin), Amber/Amethyst (Mickey & Moana), and Sapphire?Steel (Aurora & Simba) -- will be available.
Unfortunately, it doesn't look like The First Chapter Illumineer's Trove will be available for purchase, which sucks because it's probably the best set for both collectors and competitive players, featuring 8 booster packs, a full-art storage box and two full-art deck boxes.
