My thoughts on all things geek…anime, comics, conventions, etc. Just remember stay geeky my friends!
Greetings! I have posted on this blog quite a bit about the game of Weiss Schwarz. However, it occurred to me that I never passed along where you can purchase or learn more about the game. This was one major obstacle for me when I first started the game. It can be difficult of tracking down cards or finding places to learn more about the game if you don’t know where to look in the first place. Today, I would like to provide you with some websites to go to for you Weiss Schwarz questions and needs. So with out any further delay- let’s begin with a few informational sites.
http://ws-tcg.com/en/ Weiss Schwarz English Official Site
This is the official site for the English game. Here you can find out how to play, set information including card lists, the latest release news and more. This site is a great site to get you started with basic information concerning the game. If you can read Japanese, you can also check out the official Japanese website for the game http://ws-tcg.com.
http://www.heartofthecards.com Heart of the Cards
This site is the source to find out information concerning the Japanese version of the game. The site has a complete Japanese set list including promo sets and promo cards. Also on this site are card translations for all Japanese cards which have been printed and information on the banned/restricted list. A very good resource for players who are interested in playing sets from Japan.
A great site to go for the latest Weiss Schwarz cards for upcoming sets. These leaks include translations of the upcoming cards. With new cards coming every weekday (except for Japanese holidays), this is a great resource to decide whether an upcoming set is worth investing in.
Now onto a few places where you purchase Weiss Schwarz stuff.
This site is great for preordering the upcoming Japanese booster box and trial deck releases. In addition you can also purchase playmats, deck boxes, sleeves and oversleeves. Also it is a great site for collectibles and figures. If you are outside Japan, you do have to pay international shipping costs but you still come out cheaper than buying from other sources so it is well worth the shipping costs. This is a great site to deal with and you should check them out if you haven’t done so already.

When I first started using this site, they had a fair selection of cards and the prices were quite affordable. In the months since, their selection has expanded exponentially to the point where you would hard pressed to find something they didn’t have. They pretty much have any Japanese single that you would need. The site also takes requests for a card you need and will do their best to find that missing card. They also have an insane selection of card sleeves. I have found sleeve sets which were so old that they weren’t available anywhere else. I highly recommend this site if you are looking at investing in a Japanese set and need singles for it.
If you are looking for English singles, boosters, TDs, and the newest Japanese sets then this is the site to check out. They have a good selection of products and even do pre-order bundles on new sets. Their prices are fair and the selection is very nice. This is the place to check out for English Weiss singles.

The offical US distributor for Weiss Schwarz, this site has a lot to offer if you are looking for TDs, Booster boxes, special sets, sleeves, deck boxes, playmats, etc. The site has a great selection and would be a great place to buy from if you are looking at getting started with the game. They also offer pre-order bundles on new sets and have discount shipping. A great site to deal with for your Weiss needs.
So that concludes this week’s brief post. If you have any sites that you recommend please leave them in the comments below. I apologize for the delay on this post.I meant to have this up a few days ago, but I was a little sick last week and unable to do the weekly post in time. I am still hoping to do a Clannad Power Up Set review soon plus I will post more anime content- there is plenty in progress right now. If you like what you read please follow me on Facebook (Railgunfan75’s Geek Blog) and Twitter (@Railgunfan75) for updates. So until next time (and I hope I will have the post on time), this is Railgunfan75 signing off. See ya next time!
