Where: Signings and Activities Room, behind the Main Stage When: 11am - 12pm Ever wanted to see Edward Elric battle Naruto? Or Goku pulling a fast kamehameha on Ichigo? Here’s your chance! Cosplay Chess is a fun game where two teams battle each other on a human-sized chess board, with cosplayers taking on the role of the chess pieces. The game promises hilarious consequences as your favourite characters face off on the chess board.
Where / When?Cosplay Chess occurs during the convention. We'll have a time and a map of the location soon!
What?So what is Cosplay Chess, you ask? Cosplay Chess is a fun, even geekier version of chess. Ingredients? Take two chess players, 32 cosplayers, and one life-sized board.
How?The game is played out like Wizards' Chess, with a short mock-battle taking place when a piece is taken. Visualise this: Riku is a bishop, Winry is a pawn, and the bishop is taking the pawn. Riku and Winry will then have a mock-fight (preferably a funny one), which must be quick, and then Winry will "die" and leave the board while Riku wins and moves into her square.
- You must be in cosplay to participate in this game; however, everyone else is welcome to watch.
- Actual violence will not be tolerated under any circumstances. Fights between pieces are to be mock-battles only. Anyone who is seen to be violent or conducts themselves in a manner that could be seen as violent or dangerous, whether physically or verbally, will be dismissed from the game and possibly the convention.
- Once registered, you must arrive 10 minutes before the game on the day to the designated location, to confirm your entry with staff. If you don't arrive by then you may lose your place in the game.
