Latin America and the Caribbean is the most extense distribution Region for the Trading Card Game, including the countries of Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru and Venezuela with Spanish, Portuguese and English prints being officially distributed and legal for tournament play (though all other TCG prints are legal as well). It also includes smaller countries in Central and South America, as well as island countries in the Caribbean.

Spanish cards are printed in the United States and from there distributed to every one of those countries, except Brazil which prints the bulk of the Portuguese cards and so they print for themselves, with some product eventually reaching other markets in the region. But in Tournaments outside Brazil the predominant language for cards is English and this is evident in OTS Stores, as they always have more product available in English than Spanish because they place their orders to the USA distribution and they can ask for both languages without any limit or quota for each language.
