Post by: Jamiche on August 25, 2008, 10:57:02 pm
Since you all have be waiting so patiently, here are the team assignments :P 

We had so many amazing entries this year, we have enough for three teams! And, there were enough to actually break it out into a theme, so this year, we have a Battle of the Sexes!  It's Men vs Women in an epic (at least I hope so) battle of strategy and who has the coolest attack. 8)

For the men, on the Black Team:

Chess Master – Twighlight Princess Ganondorf (Legend of Zelda/SSBB), Devin O.

Rook :  Link (Legend of Zelda), Meg J.

          Takashi Morinozuka (Ouran HS Host Club), Ryan T.
          Allen Walker (D.Gray-man), Nadine Y.
          Lavi Rabi (D.Gray-man), Jessica V.
          (remaining spots will be filled at con, or with members of the losing team).

All players must attend the mandatory pre-meeting Monday morning, 10:30am unless you have made other arrangement with me ahead of time.  If you are not there by 10:45 at the latest, you will be replaced on the board.  If you have people for special attacks, please make sure they attend as well.

Please keep in mind, that your cosplay must be complete.. if it is not, you may be replaced.

I will be e-mailing out notifications as well.. probably tomorrow.  If you have any questions, you can contact me via e-mail or PM, or track me down at con (someone is bound to know where I am ;D).

Okay, let the trash talk begin!

Bishop heehee I can just imagine Renji in a gay little Mages outfit.
That has always been my impression of a bishop anyway.

You know, even if weren't a battle of the sexes Byakuya could still be Queen.

@LCR: I'm fully aware that the military is run by a homunculus, which is why I'm working to over throw them, (read manga ch86)

@oslapedo: As your king I deem that it is Haruhi's job/mission to make white team paraphenilia, and possibly to set up a white team Ouendan (cheer squad)

You know... I never thought of that.

Oh, this is random, but also amusing.

At fanime we had a generic FF white mage as a bishop.  I had to sacrifice him for the King. He used the simplest yet amusing move to save him.

A very slow motion leap in front of the king with an even slower " Nooooooooooooooooo!!"

Such an obvious move, yet it was the first tiem I'd seen it in Chess.

There are no doubles on a team.  Since we had enough to fill 3 teams, everyone who signed up is able to play.  If I had only had a handful of extras, the doubles would be listed as alternates.

Just think, if Black goes against Red, the two Kyons can fight about which is the real Kyon...

So would the Byakuyas.  Of coarse, only the Black one  has a vice captain. Obviously, the Red one is the fake!

Wait..*thinks hard* The REAL Byakuya is such a jerk..I'd want nothing to do with him! That would make the Black one the fake...but..then..the red one is actually a girl. So it definitly couldn't be her..

Maybe.. Byakuya IS a girl! o_O YAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! My poor braincells are on fire!

I actually have eleven summons, which only leaves out a few forms of Bahamut, and maybe Odin. Do I have Odin...? I had better have Odin... That one's an instant win if he uses Zantetsuken... I ought to make a few Phoenix Downs...

hmm... I have Madeen, Fenrir, Carbuncle, Phoenix, Shiva, Ifrit, Ramuh, Ark, Atomos, Bahamut, and Odin. At least fifty small stones the color of each. Except Bahamut and Ark, since it's hard to find colored stones that are the right shade for Garnet and Ark is pumice. But I have about five Bahamut and twenty Ark pumice. And at LEAST two hundred Phoenix down feathers and about 150 phoenix pinion feathers. I'm mixing fruit juices and stuff for potions, antidote, and the like now.

8D

WHITE TEAM FTW <3

And lulz at thunderbolt! X3 I wonder what kind of prop Haruhi would have...

Edited to match with Thief's new edit: I was actually trying to be proactive in having the spam wars toned down early in this thread, so that's why I'm put off.

Lavi's hammer is bigger both ways. Freaking huge, with the Wood seal. Y'all will get p'wned by Lavi if you have to play the Red team.

Hey, big is very cool. My sitar is six feet long but is light enough that I can lift it with one hand.

OOH! I'll make one of those too! I've got iron-on letters somewhere... Pawn: One letter from Pwn on the front, and Kumoricon Cosplay Chess 2008 on the back!

 I've never been a fan of ridiculously large props. ( Unless appropriate, which in this case it is)

For me it all comes down to practically and function. Perhaps you could ..rig it up to a flame thrower. THAT would be awesome

FOR THE LOVE OF...

Nikkiolie, I was gonna post that!

Cait Sith is the cat on top of the stuffed Mog, BTW.

Yup. Haruhi, take note and be aware of who you're being compared to.

Oh no, there is comparison. Haruhi is some immeasurable amount more annoying Than Cait Saith.

Every time I hear that mother...freakin song I want to jam railroad ties into my ear drums.

 You guys should see some of over the top ranting I've done about that damned song. I even surprised myself.

Yet the cosplayers have giant swords that have had so many owners that you could practically track them on a family tree. The villains all have single wings, but can still fly in a straight line (let alone fly at all). The main bad guy thinks his mother is a headless space alien, when in reality his mother is stuck in a pillar of crystal. And the whole thing was masterminded by an evil half-bent scientist with a ponytail and a squeaky voice.

Yeah, seriously? This game is not one of those 'normal' games.

:D I just made a somewhat-funny!

You might consider finding some way to tie up the train, or hook it to your wrist (like they do with wedding dresses).  That way, you won't trip yourself or someone else :)

XDD I shall! The Queen needs her bodyguards! *goes to find a Zidane* =^-^=
I'ljust have to... make an example of the first one who does. *evil face* >: D

I might make a hook-up on the end on the train to hook to one wrist, but the train is part of the actualy skirt and cannot be messed with too much or...
"HEY! GARNET HAD PRETTY PINK PANTIES!" - random cosplayer
"WHERE?!" - randome Zidane cosplayer

I noticed that no, Lavi did not keep his pants on for the game ( before the game I asked if she could mange to keep her pants ON)

I REALLY wanted to stay and watch the second game but I was REALLY hungry. During the game I felt like i was pass out. Even more, I get pretty intolerable when hungry. It has been said 'hell hath no furry like hungry Renji' XD

Man, looking back, Ryuk killed a LOT of people in that game. =O

8'D There was...a lot of strange goins on. xD

Poison Cookies...stiiiill epic

I haven't very many pics of me, so I can't say weather it worked entirely for me, but I think it did...

You guys were all fantastic :D  I'm bummed that I couldn't stay to watch all of the White vs. Red match, but I had faith that my awesome chess masters would continue to do a great job... and it sounds like they did.

Thank you, guys... you all made it a fun event, your battles were epic.  My chess masters made sure everyone played, while giving us a fun and entertaining game, and Roy was a great emcee, thanks :)

Hopefully, we will get a bigger room next year, and have an even better game (is that even possible?).  Now, if we can just get it to be good vs evil...

You guys rock!

Sorry you feel that way Richie, but think of it this way... someone has to die first, and the first person to die will never get a kill. Leeroy got beat by Princess Tutu. Sides, I didn't have THAT much control over the game, I was told to throw pieces at my opponent, and I did so, as did she.

That's taking a bit personally.  It isn't as though he was thinking " I hate that  Richi I'm so gonna take her out first"

I wish we had a bigger time slot so each time had a chance to play twice or something like how there was three teams this year...

if we get three teams for 2009 maybe it should go like

1vs2
winner of last one vs 3

winner of second match vs loser of the first

??? It would give everyone a chance of two games I think, unless my math is wrong. Cause I think a few pawns got upseat when they died in their first move : (

Why would that be a problem? Most neutral characters wouldn't be out of place fighting on either side, even if the idea is that they aren't permanently tethered to either good or evil. ;) Failing that, the event organizer and the cosplayer can negotiate.

For those that are going to September 20th picnic we are going to have a chess game. In the "plan your own adventures" thread there is a sign up if anyone is interested

I didn't make it to Cosplay Chess this year, but I'd love to talk to the people who participated. I'm looking into the possibility of starting another panel/event that would provide an additional outlet for people seeking excuses to stage improvised mock battles.

That sounds likefun, but i think we should do the games on differeant days.

Between packing all our stuff and attending the premeet, I had no time to get anything to eat.  As much fun as I weas having, Byakuya and i were albiet preying that would lose so we could get soemthing to eat before I passed out.  ( he was okay, but he wanted me to get food becuase I get REALLY bitchy I'm hungry)

I like the idea of games on different days. That would also get people a chance to see at least one. We could do one Saturday, one sunday and two on monday.

that would be if there were four teams.....I think

also if we are doing it tournement style, shouldnt there be four chestmasters? one for each team.

as another comment to the not a lot of action thing i have this to say...

as some one who also plays chess I learn that you tend to pick a favorite piece... for me its the bishop, I dunno why. I use the bishop for most of my atacking... a lot of chess players have favorite pieces for attack, and often its luck of the draw in how much you get to attack. I noticed in a few of the games that there were a few characters that saw more action than the others simpley because of the piece they played.

Hooray for Bishops!

I was really worried that I would just die.

In the last chess game I played I was told many times that the bishop is only there to sacrifice in place of more important pieces.

My only regret..is that I didn't die epically enough.

I'm rather fond of rooks myself.

Man, cosplay chess was so much fun. :3  I didn't think I'd get to play, but I'm so glad I did.  Bummer Black Team had to forfeit, but I'm definitely signing up next year. :D

The only problem I can see with having games on multiple days is that the pieces will have to miss quite a bit of the con.  The chess game took up most of Monday, and if you had to go to two/three days of games, you'd miss a good chunk of the convention. :/

I don't mind. Chess is easily the most fun I have at any convention.

I really don't go to any panels  and it always makes me sad that it isn't until the last day that it really seems 'like a con'.


Besides, this way we can have multiple characters per person, with more options for epic battles.

Maybe we could even have on or two planned, so that the final battle reaches it's greatest potential.

Title: Re: 2008 Cosplay Chess: Teams Assignments
Post by: Jamiche on October 02, 2008, 04:23:45 pm
The problem with scheduling the matches over the 3 days is time and space.  It takes the hotel time to remove the chairs for the clear area for the board (and it's a typical policy that only hotel staff can do it).  So that's and half-hour to and hour before and after the match.  And given the size of the event, it needs to be held in a bigger room, so options on where to play it is limited... if you look at last year's schedule, Live Events was a pretty busy room. (Outside is not a good option - where is the space?  Security?  And rain?)

Then there are time conflicts - Saturday, people are still in reg lines.  Sunday, Cosplay.  That is one of the reasons for having it on Monday.  Yes it takes a chunk of time, but it's also when we have the most time available for it.  The event deals with a lot of people - 16 people to a team, making sure everyone is there,knows the board.  And getting people in the room... squeezing in as many people as possible to watch took time (hopefully, next year we won't have to turn people away).

We have all of the Hilton, and are not sharing it with anyone else.  But go back and look at the schedule, and you can see how busy late afternoons and evenings could be.

I'm not trying to shoot down anyone's ideas.. Cosplay Chess is one of my favorite events, and I'm glad everyone has fun participating.  But we have limited space that we have to share with other events, and that means making compromises.  So yeah, we have Monday... but we also rule Monday, because so far, we don't have any competition ;D
