Weiss Schwarz Demo Days in Plainville

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.
