    Weiß Schwarz(Weiss Schwarz) - Anime TCG

    Greetings! I am currently playing one of a handful of Bushiroad card games, titled Weiss Schwarz. The card game focuses on various anime and games. The game is only in Japanese, but there has been a single prebuilt deck or Trial Deck in English, which is from Disgaea. Experience a Yugioh/Magic like card game, that is considered more "balanced" in terms of game play/fairness. Not to mention you can also enjoy decks based off your favorite characters from a series!

    A list of anime/games in the tcg:
    Da Capo, Da Capo II - plus communication
    Clannad
    Little Busters!
    The Familiar of Zero
    Nanoha StrikerS
    Lucky Star
    Little Busters! Ecstasy
    Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~
    The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
    Da Capo, Da Capo II Plus Communication
    Index & Railgun
    Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's
    Angel Beats! & Kud Wafter
    Persona 3
    Disgaea
    Fate/stay night
    Shining Force EXA
    The King of Fighters
    Sengoku Basara
    THE iDOLM@STER
    Persona 4
    Fairy Tail
    Melty Blood
    Black Rock Shooter
    Tantei Opera Milky Holmes
    Rebuild of Evangelion
    Disgaea 4
    Index & Railgun II
    THE iDOLM@STER 2
    Katanagatari
    Shakugan no Shana
    Macross Frontier
    Rewrite
    Guilty Crown
    Dog Days
    Nichijou
    Persona 4 (anime booster)
    Fate/Zero
    Puella Magi Madoka Magica
    Fairy Tail (extra booster)

    Let me explain how typically these cards are provided to us.
    Trial Decks: Consist of a 50 cards "ready to play" deck, mat, rule set. Some trial decks have a 1:6 chance of getting a "Signed Print" card which is typically a card signed by the voice actress from a favorite herione! There are also a few(about 2-3 cards) that you can only get in the TD such as, the signed card which is specific to the deck.

    Full Boost Boxes/Packs: Come with 20 packs per box, 8 cards per pack. Usually you get 1 holo, or RRR(triple rare) or SR(secret rare) per box. Odds of pulling a signed card are significantly lower, because a carton of boosters is 16 boxes and typically you will get anywhere from 2-4 signed print in one set. Full cards set of these are over 100+ cards

    Extra Packs: Comes with 6 packs per booster box, 6 cards per pack and usually a 27-36 card set. Packs come with 4 non-foil cards and 2 foil cards per pack, so total you would get 12 foils per box, rarity of the foils is from common-rare, it's random. All cards in this pack have a foil version. Some extra packs also come with signed prints as well, although the chances of getting on are less, because there are more boosters in this type of carton. EP's cost half the price of regular boxes, there are pros/cons to this format.

    Sorry for the lack of updates and responses, apparently I haven't been receiving updates via my email. (Who knows, I'll check more frequently though)

    A few months ago it was announced that there will be two new ENGLISH Trial Decks, that is a 50 card prebuilt deck; those two decks will be Fate/Zero, and Puella Madoka Magica, both of which are extremely popular sets.

    I wish they'd release all of the cards in English, I love trading card games, the only one I'm still collecting is Pokemon tho... none of my friends is interested in such things, hopefully my son will be willing to play with me as soon as he can read. :>

    Anyways, I'd definitely be interested in Weiß Schwarz, should they ever decide to release it in English. *_*

    The name is silly and I'm not even sure how to translate it (though admittedly I'm incredibly bad at German). White & Black? Is there a significance to that, or is it gibberish (but foreign)?

    Anyway, the concept is... interesting, I guess, but I'm not really one for collectibles of any sort. Never had much to do with trading cards aside from a brief thing with Yugioh like ten years ago.

    The name isnt as silly as you think. There are two type of cards White and Black. The White card's are based of either light hearted anime or Visual Novel's. Black cards are based off more actiony shonen anime's. Sadly it is a bit unbalanced with Black cards having better effects. But since the last couple of months they have been making it more even.

    BUMP. As I've stated above in my update there will be two new english decks, Fate/Zero, and Madoka, coming out this summer - around late July. Also sorry I was slow with responses, if anyone wants to learn the rules, or learn how to play I will be willing to teach them via various methods of instant messaging, or skype(preferred.) It's extremely easy to learn how to play, not to mention on the main site for North America, they have "card sleeve inserts" which are easily placed paper cut outs with near 100% translations, to make it for a more fun and easily playable environment! Please help me out in the spreading of this TCG. It is extremely promising and there is a high chance that more sets will be released in english, because of the recently released Vanguard TCG that is continuously being updated with english cards/sets since the beginning of this year.

    Once again, please send me a PM, or reply to thread with any contact means if you wish to learn to play!!! Thanks

    Sounds fun and is defiantly awesome having multiple anime and VNs. I do like playing card games but my two problems are A) I'll probably won't find another person who has them anywhere nearby me. B) I wouldn't put the money into it for mostly reason A.

    Edit:

    A single prebuilt deck goes for around 17-22 USD. Not to mention the new Shining Force anime came out, meaning there's a good chance a set will be made for it(collectors, etc.)
