I know how you feel! I swear, computer chess cheats. > > Oh well though.

That is a good point, in this case how well you play doesn't matter. As long as everyone gets a chance to play, and everyone enjoys themselves.~

That'd be cool!~ xD I just hope I make it onto one of the chess teams, since I love this game so much. If I don't I'll totally show up just to watch.

I think it's interesting when characters from the same show end up fighting each other, but that doesn't really happen that often. And when it does it can
be pretty depressing. Depending on the characters anyway. xD

Thank you, I think it turned out rather well. xD Your Roy costume looks pretty wicked too.

Some deserve it, but it all depends on the characters; right? xD I'm so excited for this.~

One year I'll probably sign up as chess master; I used to be on a team and chess is sort of in my blood. xD and CLAP, I play like that too; all scattered everywhere <3

And that'd be really cool.~ I can't remember who the chess masters were last year. Actually, last year's Cosplay Chess game was kinda boring to me for some reason. D:

This year's will be amazing though!~

Oh really? I missed it cause I only went on Saturday )= So this year should be fun!

We shall do our best to entertain with bickering and Such.

I shall lead us to Victory ! hopefully

I'm not sure what room it will be in It will be in Live 1 and 2 on Monday from 12PM to 3PM (note, the pre-meet is 10:30AM to 12PM), hopefully what happened last year won't happen this year...being, that they simply ran out of room! I was in line to go see the chess but they not long after I got there had to turn away a sizable number of people as there just wasn't any room left for people to go in. Also of course they had to be sure there was enough room for the fights..so yeah, that was a bummer. 50~100 some people turned away I would say.

Likely, the same thing will happen again *chuckles* only because of the room size more people will be able to come in. It is after all the biggest event/show on the last day of the con I think that's not hard to agree on right? (Could be wrong though of course) I'm excited to see what the turn out will be as well as the match-ups. ^_^


Oh, has it been decided then on who the two Chess Masters will be? From what I read I think that's the case but I wanted to check. Loved chess for years and I'm okay at it..but wonderful at grabbing attention so it would work well. :P I'm not sure if the Chess Master (even if I wouldn't be able to be one, I'm still curious) is actually IN the game or not..don't know how it works for Kumoricon. At Sakuracon '09 I was lucky enough to get in on that in my Kenshin outfit (Lols, I replaced a Stormtrooper that didn't show up.  ;D ) and the 'King' was also the Chess Master. However those games were pre-decided before the start of the game, so I'm not quite sure...hm. Anyway, hopefully I can get some answers on that. ^_^

Should be fun. One way or another.

To play cosplay chess, you don't need to be really good, just capable. The point is to do a good show.

Lol Or even know how to play chess! 8D

I'd be a chess master if I was decent at chess, but I'm not. Everyone would die >:[ EVERYONE.

I'm super excited >D I'm building a FREEZE RAY or a DEATH RAY for my costume, I hope I can get it doooone <3

and now I wish I could apply for it, isn't there another way to apply for it? Because I already have my full cosplay.

It's too late to send in a form, the teams are being announced tomorrow. BUT your best would be to show up at the Pre-meet, just in case someone doesn't show up and you can try to take their spot.

My guess on that would be no, but I'm not sure. From what I can tell they really want to see how the cosplay looks on you in particular.
