Anyone else heard of and/or play this game at all? I recently started getting into it and it's a lot of fun. Not very many places carry it atm but it's picking up steam.  You'll most likely have to order online if you wanna play unless you're lucky and live nearby one of the places that sell it. I play at Hammergirl Anime and Cardstore in Rochester, NY so if you live near there then you have one of the best stores in all of North America for playing this game at your disposal.

Types of formats:
Standard - Any cards from any anime can be used in any deck.
Neo-Standard - Only cards from one anime can be used in a deck. This is what the majority of tournaments are.
League - Some special rules are in place, like pegasus league in YGO.
Title Cup - Everyone in the tournament uses the same anime deck. For instance, a Haruhi Title Cup.

Do you know the best place to order Weib Schwarz boxes/singles from? I've been looking everywhere for a couple boxes of the Black Rock Shooter extra pack, and haven't seen any for a decent price.

This looks amazing. I would definitely pick this up if there were just other people around to play with. Couldn't find any information about it in my area. :/

You could always try and get your friends to play if no one else around your area is playing. That's how I got into it. The game is also gaining a large following at anime conventions so there's those as well.

As for ordering I get my cards either from Hammergirl or from an asian friend who orders all the stuff. I'll talk to him about it tho and get back to you.

Thanks. In all honesty I'm more interested in using these as tokens (I already have some Haruhi, K-On!, Angel Beats!, and To Aru cards), however my friends have expressed interest in playing the game if I can ever find out where to buy these. I know Hobby Search carries a limited amount of Weib Schwarz product, but I really want to get my hands on some of the Black Rock Shooter packs. Also, I went to Anime Expo (LA) this year and I don't recall anyone playing/demo-ing this, I only recall people playing that maid game whose name escapes me right now.

There was a big booth and demo this year at Anime North in Toronto, Canada and I hear that a lot of the big anime conventions in the states are starting as well.

I'll post my 2 decks when I get the chance so people can get an idea of what decks look like when fully made.

Wait, is Hammergirl the place in Henrietta? I know some people who play Vanguard or at least what I thought was Vanguard. Is this the same thing? Related company? Totally separate? I've never played either but this looks slightly interesting...

Cardfight Vanguard and Weib Schwarz are separate card games, both produced by Bushiroad iirc. Cardfight Vanguard is more similar to Yugioh in the sense that it's card game is based upon the card game from the anime Cardfight Vanguard (not 100% sure on this) just like Yugioh card game is based upon the card game in the Yugioh Anime. Weib Schwarz on the other hand borrows characters from completely separate anime series such as Haruhi, To Aru Majutus no Index/To Aru Kagaku no Railgun, K-on!, Angel Beats!, etc.

Okay, cool. So it has cards from lots of Otaku anime, not so much the popular mainstream stuff like Bleach, Vampire Knight, etc. i.e. the ecchi manga's/related

Oh and Vangaurd is based of an anime.

I might have to take a look at this... are there tournaments at Hammergirl?

Yes there are tournaments almost every Saturday at around 2. I live about 4 hours away so I don't go every week but our group of friends try to go at least once a month.

The gameplay between Vanguard and Weiss are similar but are different. Two seperate games made by the same company Bushiroad.

So here's one of my decks atm. Based on Kud Wafter from Little Busters. There's a lot of other Little Busters sets that I don't have access to so the deck will constantly be changing as I get more cards from other sets.

For translations you can go here and just click on the images http://littleakiba.com/tcg/weiss-schwarz/card.php?series_id=33

+1 Rep to whoever guesses my playmat ;D

So I have 3 questions:

1) Is it better/more fun to play with an anime set you like/know or does that differ from person to person?

2) Is it okay to have multiple animes together?

3) Is there a best deck at the moment?

1) It varies from person to person but I wouldn't want to play a deck that I didn't like.
2) No. All tournaments (unless stated otherwise) are Neo-Standard. Which basically means you follow the banlist and you can only use cards from one respective anime/game.
3) There are a bunch of good decks atm. Recently at the Chinese WGP 1st place went to Milky Holmes and 2nd place went to Angel Beats. I've played against both and they are both very good. So I'd probably say those are the best decks atm but you never know they could ban some cards from them. Funny how the Milky Holmes anime is made by Bushiroad and it's one of, if not the, best deck right now lol.

What set/anime series would be the best for a beginner to use? Would it be something through one of the starter sets, and if it is which starter set would you recommend to first use?

The best Trial Decks that I've seen are Fairy Tail, Shakugan no Shana, and Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya but if you want a really easy deck for beginner's you can always get the Disgaea deck because it's the only deck in english but the deck itself isn't that great.

Do they have prize support at Hammergirl? I was just wondering because supposedly their Pokemon tournaments do not.

I probably will try and track down the Haruhi trial deck and I've also found out there's a To Aru trial deck that I'll probably try and track down eventually.

I want to play this game :wub:

Ok after searching for a bit I saw several mentions to K-On but I cant find a booster for it. Is it an upcoming set or am I just blind?

Sadly there is no K-ON set nor any plans for one. I think those several mentions must have just been people REALLY wanting a K-ON set :wub:

Also added the Banlist and format descriptions to the first post.

No the first 5 cards on the list are banned. The final card, the LV3 Misaka and Kuroko card, is semi-limited to 2 per deck.

They do rotate cards off tho just like YGO. This card was also banned until just a little while ago.
