My understanding is that the essentials box is releasing first week of June at Target and then your FLGS should have them. I guess Target worked out an "early release" deal.

The adventure is supposedly set in the same general area as LMoP, some NPCs cross over etc...

Retail of $25 US...

Since Canada has no Targets now, I guess I'll have to wait. Hopefully this works to get more new players.

I'm not concerned so much about new players in the hobby, with the Stranger Things tie-in and the upcoming Rick & Morty tie-in, it's obvious there are some very smart people at Wizards these days.

D&D Beyond is also an excellent tool (they just need to figure out a mobile app), and the Critical Role and Acquistions Inc. tie-in stuff just adds even more fuel to the fire.

As a librarian I also see more and more formal programs and informal groups meeting at local branches, the hobby is doing quite well I think.
