UPDATE Barnes and Noble Leaked Pages Pulled

After nearly twenty-four hours and widespread coverage in the blog-o-sphere, hobby news sites, forums, mainstream news sites, and twitter; Barnes and Noble has pulled the pre-order pages for the Dungeons and Dragons Starter Set and Player's Handbook off their websites (see Release Date for Next Leaked? for more). 


It wouldn't surprise me to find out that the leak on Barnes and Noble was just symptomatic of the many problems with that company at this time; however, it also wouldn't surprise me if Wizards took advantage of the largely negative feedback and changed their plans. 

More on this story as it continues to develop.

[Edit] The Starter Set pre-order page is still up at this time. Sorry for the confusion on this point. 

[Edit - 3/5/2014] Both pages are now down.

    1. Thanks for that Erik. I must have double clicked on the PH link. I've corrected it in the post.

  2. The Starter Set has a much more reasonable price point.

    1. Yeah, I'm definitely in with it. $20.00 to try out the system and see what they've done with it since the close of the public playtest is well worth the investment as far as I'm concerned.

      Wish they had done that with 4th. :(
