Weiβ Schwarz

Weiβ Schwarz

In December issue of Megami Magazine, there was a Weiβ Schwarz card of Fate Testarossa Harlaown. I’d heard about Weiβ Schwarz, but I didn’t know too much about it. So I did a little research to find out more about this game.

Weiβ Schwarz is an anime trading card game where two people battle each other. You can find cards of characters from various series.
Currently the list consist of:

Da Capo / Da Capo II
Little Busters! / Ecstasy
Persona 3 / Persona 4
Zero no Tsukaima
Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS
Fate/Stay Night
Shining Force: EXA
King of Fighters

I won’t try to explain the rules to you, because I myself didn’t get everything from the manual. As it’s said, people learn better when they try it themselves. But thanks to one generous person, you can read the Quick Manual in English, if you happen to want to learn how to play this game.

I believe that this game might be exciting, like other trading cards such as Magic: The Gathering, or Pokemon are. There are also cards, called climax cards, that depicts actual scenes from anime, and these cards are said to be very powerful.

Here is a link to the official sites of Weiβ Schwarz game. Obviously in Japanese.
