Ravensburger has unveiled a portion of the 2024 Disney Lorcana Trading Card Game lineup, including new products, competitive events and organized play activations. 

“Disney Lorcana TCG has struck a chord with players, collectors and fans around the world and we’re so grateful for the support,” says Filip Francke, global head of games, Ravensburger. “It has proven to be a fantastic entry point for first-time TCG players, and we will continue to do everything in our power to make the product available at MSRP pricing. 

“As we move into 2024, we will continue to support our growing and diverse community through new discoveries for collectors, organized play and competitive events for players and new products that help beginning fans take their first steps into trading card games. We’re only just getting started, but consumer feedback and industry data supports our belief that this game will be around for a very long time.” 

The Disney Lorcana TCG will introduce a new stand-alone product called Disney Lorcana TCG Gateway, a progressive learn-to-play experience designed to ease new players into the game and TCG space. Described as the ‘ultimate beginner’s introduction to the Disney Lorcana TCG,’ the product includes two 30-card basic Disney Lorcana TCG decks, a two-player game board with character standees, rules and player’s guides and additional cards that players will be rewarded to add to their decks as they learn about the card types and gameplay. When players have played through all of Gateway, they will have built two standard Disney Lorcana TCG decks.

Disney Lorcana TCG Gateway will be released Aug. 9. 

For established players, a series of competitive, organized play events have been announced for 2024. First, Ravensburger will launch an official competitive circuit in North America and Europe starting in May. Titled Disney Lorcana Challenge, the events will begin at a regional level where players can compete to qualify for North American and European Championships respectively, with the top players earning invites to the Disney Lorcana World Championship slated for early 2025. The top four players from each regional challenge event will qualify for the North American or European championship in their respective region.  

At the local level, Ravensburger will also debut a new type of in-store organized play event – Set Championships – starting in April, after the release of the Into the Inklands set. Select Disney Lorcana TCG Organized Play-approved locations may host an Into the Inklands Championship, which includes a unique Enchanted Stitch – Rock Star Promo card that is only available as a prize at the Into the Inklands Championships. The top two players at the event can also win a playmat featuring the new Stitch – Rock Star artwork. Details for how retailers can host an Into the Inklands Championship will come in late February.
