weiss top8 local players
 

This past weekend, Bushiroad held the 2015 Weiβ Schwarz Nationals in New York. We had several members of our community represent Battleground Games & Hobbies at the tournament. And while the road to Worlds ended a little short, our guys still did an amazing job and we are extremely proud of them. Johnny, Victor, and Nick all made the Top 8 of the tournament. Johnny, even made it to the Top 4. So we wanted to take a moment to say congratulations on a job well done!

 

If you see any of these guys at your next event, shake their hand, give them a hug, or high-five them!

Bushiroad to Release ‘Love Live! DX’ Expansion for Weiss Schwarz

Bushiroad will release the new Love Live! DX booster expansion for its Weiss Schwarz TCG on June 26th, as originally reported by hobby news website ICv2.com.

 

The DX (deluxe) booster is a new release tied to the same property as last year’s Love Live! Trial Deck and Booster.  The set is based on the Love Live! School Idol Project multimedia property that includes manga, music CD’s, anime and video games about a group of school girls who become idols to save their school from shutting down.  The new Love Live! DX booster includes a special mix of cards from two Japanese releases: Booster Pack Love Live! feat. School Idol Festival and Extra Booster Love Live!.  Certain card specifications in this English set will differ from the Japanese edition cards.

The booster will include 107 cards including 28 parallel cards. Gold Foil/Hot Stamp chase cards featuring autographs (2 sets) from all nine members of the group “μ’s” (pronounced muse) will be randomly inserted into packs.  Each booster includes eight cards, with 20 boosters per display, and  16 displays per carton.  The English Edition does not include gold/silver campaign coupons.  With this set, English and Japanese cards may be played together in tournament formats (except in Japan).  Two PR cards out of 6 types and 1 Love Live! School Idol Festival Mobile Game serial code will be included in each display as a supplement.  Each carton will also include 4 rubber play mats (1 design).

This set will follow the May release of KanColle Trial Deck & Booster Pack. An exciting time to be a Weiss Schwarz fan!

 

Please don’t forget to join us every Saturday at Battleground Games & Hobbies in Abington, MA for our weekly Weiss Schwarz events! We look forward to seeing you.

WS pic
 

 

Do you like anime? How about anime *and* card games? You may have already seen this mentioned on Facebook or in last week’s store newsletter, but Eric Cobb will be visiting the Plainville store each Saturday starting at 6 PM to demo Weiss Schwarz, an anime-themed card game produced by Bushiroad in Japan. Weiss Schwarz features a wide variety of characters and titles, all battling for supremacy on the stage. Almost a dozen series/sets have already been released in English, and more are on the way soon!

 

The next demo day is this Saturday (12/13) starting at 6 PM, so come join in on the fun and lead your favorite characters to victory! (It’s not listed on the store website or calendar yet, so take note.)

 

All English trial decks released by Bushiroad will be available to borrow for the demo nights (and a small amount of Booster Packs and Trial Decks will be available for purchase).

 

  • Fate/Zero
  • Sword Art Online
  • Hatsune Miku Project DIVA f
  • Bakemonogatari
  • Kill la Kill
  • Persona 4
  • Puella Magi Madoka Magica
  • Love Live!
  • Angel Beats!

 

If you already have your own deck to play, bring it along! The demo nights will mostly be focused on teaching the game to new players, but experienced players are also wanted and welcome. Come share your game knowledge and help newer players learn!

 

Feel free to reply in the comments below with any questions you might have and we’ll do our best to answer promptly. See you on Saturday!

 

What? You’re super-excited to learn the game and you can’t wait until Saturday?

 

OK, I’ve got you covered. Here’s a quick 20-minute video from a couple of British players that does a great job of introducing the game basics. It’s a bit rapid-fire, but it’ll give you a nice head-start before the first demo night.

Bushiroad Announces New ‘Weiss Schwarz’ Expansion for January

Bushiroad will release a new Nisekoi-False Love expansion for its Weiss Schwarz TCG, according to hobby retailer news website ICv2.com. The Trial Deck and Booster Pack will release on January 23rd and will be available in Battleground Games & Hobbies in Abington, MA.

The set is based on the Niseko -False Love romantic comedy anime based on the manga series by Naoshi Nomi that VIZ began publishing in English in January.  The anime adaptation began airing in Japan in January 2014, and was licensed by Aniplex USA for streaming in North America, where it streams on Daisuki, Crunchyroll and Hulu.

The story follows high school students Raku Ichijo and Chitoge Kirisaki, children of bosses of rival yakuza factions.  Their parents decide to end their feuding by pairing their children, who do not get along, but must pretend to date to keep the peace between the gangs.  Raku has a crush on another girl at school, and he also made a childhood promise to a girl who bears the key to his locket.  Other developments arose to further complicate the situation in typical rom-com fashion.

The Trial Deck will include 10 exclusive trial-deck only cards (5 types).  Two types of exclusive RRR Foil cards as well as an SP Gold Foil/ Hot Stamp card signed by a Japanese voice actress are randomly inserted in decks. The pre-constructed deck will include 50 cards (same content for each deck), as well as a deck manual, playbook, playmat and rule sheet.  Random decks will also include special RRR foil or SP Gold Foil/Hot Stamp signed cards from the Japanese voice cast.  The decks are packed six to a display, with eight displays per carton.  The English edition does not include gold/silver campaign coupons.

The Booster Pack includes new cards and new characters in the 100-card set, which includes 17 parallels.  Each booster includes eight cards, with 20 boosters per display.  Four rubber playmats are included in each carton.  One PR card out of six types will be included in each display as well.  The English Edition does not include gold/silver campaign coupons.  With this set, English and Japanese cards may be played together in tournament formats (except in Japan and certain major tournament formats).  Exclusive SP Gold Foil/ Hot Stamp signed cards from the Japanese voice actresses are randomly inserted in packs.

This set will follow the December release of Weiss Schwarz: Fairy Tail ver. E.

 

Don’t forget to join us here at Battleground Games & Hobbies in Abington, MA each and every Saturday beginning at noon for our weekly Weiss Schwarz tournament!
