Tasha's Cauldron of Everything releases on November 17, 2020.

Due to shipping complications related to COVID-19, the physical book release of Tasha's Cauldron of Everything in Europe and APAC ONLY has been delayed to December 1, 2020. Thanks for your understanding! To reiterate, this delay is only for the Europe/APAC releases, and the launch of the book in North America is not impacted at all.

What's the meaning of APAC? Does this affect amazon? (I can only buy in amazon since there are not official dealers in my country)
Edit: I looked what's APAC and seems that amazon is not affected. Finger crossed.

I realise that the vast majority of WotC customers are in North America, Europe and Asia/Pacific, but it is still somehow vaguely irritating to have two whole (populated) continents just ignored. There are D&D customers in South America and Africa too.
And Antarctica!

Fewer hobbiest stores there however.

But seriously, your SA distributor either gets their goods from APAC or from NA (probably NA). And African distributors from EU or APAC.

They are basically the names of distribution chains.

The level of English isn't enough to dare original books in naive English. They aren't good markets, not enough players.

Trust me. Being in NA does you no good when Amazon hasn't yet stocked pre-orders less that 3 weeks away.
 

APAC: Asia-PACific. Quiet a common term in business relations.
Since I don't care as much for the physical books, I am satisfied if DnD Beyonds has a digital version available on Nov 17, 2020.

Usually DDB has books up for preorder a month or two in advance, but Tasha's, for some reason, is yet to appear for preorder only with only a few weeks left. Hopefully they get it up soon - my buyin' finger is getting twitchy!
 


This is a very sad Aussie
.

Yeah, me too. Us down under types really have gotten the rough end of the pineapple on the shipping front. It was true before COVID, it's even more true now. Exchange rate is bad, shipping has skyrocketed in price and quadrupled in time taken, everything is getting delayed and pushed back, and we're such a small market that we're always last on distribution priority.

Still, we're not having people die by the thousand of horrible diseases either, so it's a fairly first-world-problems thing for me to complain about, all things considered...

I expected this down here in NZ after the Theros book was delayed but figured it wouldn't be too bad since I'll be getting it on DnDBeyond first and then the physical book some time when I get around to it.
 

Hm...yeah, sucks somewhat for us in Europe...then again, money's tight for November. I guess I'll get the digital version first via Beyond and then buy the physical copy on my birthday (which happens to be Decmber 1st ;) ).

So far, WotC has not green-lit digital pre-orders. According to the latest dev update from DDB, the situation is likely to change next week.

Besides, does it matter if you pre-order or purchase it on release date if it is a digital product and there is no pre-order discount? You will get it immediately when released anyway.
