You will be able to try one of the most anticipated card games in recent memory in Sturgeon Bay this weekend. A select number of game retailers like Gnome Games and The Gnoshery will be a part of the prerelease of the Disney Lorcana ahead of its official launch on September 1st. According to ScreenRant, events like Disney D23 Expo and GenCon in Indianapolis gave out promotional cards featuring Mickey Mouse as a musketeer, Robin Hood, and Cruella De Vil that are now worth hundreds if not thousands of dollars. Comparing the Disney Lorcana to similar games like Pokemon and Magic: The Gathering, Gnome Games owner Pat Fuge told Door County Daily News last month that the cards are played among players and not just sold between collectors.
Fuge said that despite offers from collectors to purchase his entire stock, he is going to limit people buying the starter pack and subsequent boosters so more people get a chance to play. That will be part of the goal of a special release event on Saturday to celebrate the arrival of Disney Lorcana.
