The highly anticipated release of Dungeons & Dragons The deck of many things was delayed in October when publisher Wizards of the Coast discovered flaws in early copies submitted to Polygon and other outlets for review. A new batch of products is in production, the publisher announced Monday, and the US release date has been moved to January 5.
“Production in a new round of The deck of many things Collections have begun,” Wizards said on the D&D Beyond message boards. “For US players and stores, we hope The deck of many things It will be available starting January 5. EMEA and APAC will receive shipments a little later; We will update further when we can share a more exact timeline. If production has issues that cause further delays, we will provide additional updates as soon as possible.”
The deck of many things is a three-part product that includes 66 tarot-style cards and two hardcover books: The book of many things and Card Reference Guide. Those who pre-ordered the set already received a digital copy of The book of many thingsbut both the letters and the Card Reference Guide otherwise they would not have been available at all. Both are expected to arrive alongside physical copies of the main book in January, according to Wizards.
As for the deck of the same name that Polygon received, one of the decks we received contained cards that were damaged and clearly poorly made. While some had marks from mishandling or poor production methods, others were simply the wrong size. We will not have our full opinion on the final product until we receive an updated sample for your review.
