Hello! You know, you might find this interesting... I almost got a job on here at Cosplay Chess. But guess who the foreman went with? Only some strange doctor who looked exactly like him. Nepotism. Stuck me on the bloody White Team. Wait, that's still Cosplay Chess? YES! I'm looking so forward to chessmastering again! I promise I'll be way funnier than last year. I have so much more material to work with as Wheatley. And (against all forms of stupidity) we'll win it! We're White Team!

YOU DID NOT
It was a stalemate >.> You guys cheated. It would have been like another hour before that game finished... Though I had a grand time taking out Link xD Can't wait for videos to be posted

Says frustrated Undertaker. XD

But in reality, Black Team SHOULD have won. I was careless in the beginning and actually left Dr. Stein in a position to checkmate me really early in the game. The only reason she didn't is because I asked her not to so that the game would keep going... Also, me and her planned my great cheating escapade together after White Mokona died. XD

And I love you for it. I was joking with Dane (Zero) that I was going to take him out long before the game started. I was happy that I was able to beat him :D

Aw Wheatley, you are so sweet admitting that XD. I enjoyed our match very much and will be signing up for Chessmaster again if I decide to go to Kumoricon again next year. (It is looking kind of iffy) or I might just go for day three to participate in chess.

I actually apologize for that...I made the dumb mistake of mistaking the White team's queen for a pawn. It is harder than normal to keep track of all your enemy's pieces when they are quarter pieces of post-it notes on a board XD We did try to use everyone, even if it was harmful to our plans.

It's fine :3 Ciel and I had fun talking about how to win. Every other turn we thought we would win... then loose... then win... Well, it was better than the past games :) Everyone got to fight, and it truly ended in a stalemate! But I wish I'd gotten a picture with you...

Man upset me that I was the first one killed, I didnt even get to really play I took two steps then was killed T_T, I also had picked out two people to help me do two of my spells and I didn't even get the chance to use them, I felt like I was killed off the bored on purpose, not sure if I want to join again next year it was just lame.

Well, that's the unfortunate circumstance as a pawn and as well just a factor of the whole game. SOMEONE has to die first and I don't think anyone would want it to be them. I can at least assure you I did not kill you on purpose. In fact, nothing in this game was on purpose... Except maybe pelting Demyx with the potato, but that's another story. As well, be lucky you made the board at all. One of my friends applied for a space as Hollow Ichigo with one of the coolest masks I've ever seen and he didn't make the cut. Not to mention we had quite the collection of alternates who didn't get a second game to play in, The best I can encourage is don't lose heart. You never know what piece you'll get or even how much you'll do. Last year, one on my pawns was the decider of the entire match. With things as unscripted as they are, one never knows what will happen.

Anyway, on another note, I just wanted to thank all you awesome pieces for all the work you put into this game along with the chessmasters, the hosts, the tech crew, and Jaki. Without you, our jokes probably wouldn't make sense most of the time. Especially Statler and Waldorf's. You also really helped in making this to be even funner to be chessmaster than last year. After checking my financial means and location as of September 3, 2012, I can say I'll be returning next year and see if I can't return as the White Chessmaster once again. I absolutely love doing this each year, and I'll be happy to take it on once again. :)

@ Jacob- That was kind of rude... I don't care if it was in character, you made that dress, and it could have easily ripped. I think my cosplay malfunction was enough for everyone.

@ Shout- If you do make it, I know you'll be an awesome master :3 Pity I won't be there to see it

@ Orly- You just made my day though the whole thing xD You moved like twice and yet still had things to do.

Sadly that's just how it ends up being sometimes. I've been in Cosplay Chess 3 years now, and the same thing has happened each year: I'm a pawn, I move once, and I die in my first fight. Last year I even got killed twice by the exact same piece since they ended up being used in both games. Yet every year I still sign up because like Shout said, with unscripted games you never know what will happen. Someone has to die first, and sadly you just happened to get picked. My advice is talk with the other team, especially if you think you're going to not last very long(like if you're a pawn for example). Say that you want to use your special attacks in a fight, and most people will gladly oblige. It will mean that we get more fun by having a larger battle and the audience gets more enjoyment out of the struggle. Plus it'll be a nice change from the standard "run away until I'm cornered" or "take one hit and fall to the floor".

In short, don't give up just because of one bad experience. You never know what next year will be like, and communication between you, the chess masters, and the other pieces of both sides will ensure that your next experience will be more enjoyable.

Hello! You know, you might find this interesting... I almost got a job on here at Cosplay Chess. But guess who the foreman went with? Only some strange doctor who looked exactly like him. Nepotism. Stuck me on the bloody White Team. Wait, that's still Cosplay Chess? YES! I'm looking so forward to chessmastering again! I promise I'll be way funnier than last year. I have so much more material to work with as Wheatley. And (against all forms of stupidity) we'll win it! We're White Team!

You're going to be a chessmaster next year, too? MAN. Now I wish I were going to Kumoricon next year. I would totally resurrect my Perceptor costume just so we could have a team of science obsessed British robots. Alas, I don't know that I'll have the money.

Maybe if I start saving now...

@ Blizzara- First, might I just say you had a fantastic costume? It was quite fabulous :)
Second, I know what you mean. I think it should just go without saying that if you're taking someone out who has yet to have a battle, draw it out. This was my first year of cosplay chess so my first battle was rough, but my second one was a great length. And if you see the battle coming, talk to the piece. That's what the girl I battled the second time did (I can't remember her naaaaaaaaaaaaaamed D8 She was great, though!). Maybe if we'd shut up during the meeting we all would have been better informed...

I'm going to apply at least. Just like pieces, it's not a guaranteed thing. I also won't be Wheatley again next year. I'm looking at all matter of cosplays for next year.

I had a few inappropriate jokes I had to hold back... ;D

Also, I don't know if our characters style of comedy works in a situation like this.  We have some pre-written jokes (not enough for 2 hours it turns out  :-[) but our comedy relies heavily on funny situations or quick, funny retorts.  Filling a 1-2 min gap of time while the chess masters decided on there next move( btw, both of you did awesome!) with quick one-liners is difficult and not very appealing after the first 30min.  We work best when we say our lines, get the laugh, and the attention shifts. Also, we were kinda tired and off this weekend...  Including at the Sightly Anime Dating Game, which was also awesome.

But it was a blast and thank you for wanting us and allowing us to perform our "shtick" for everyone.  If you want us to come back next year (including just at the convention) we will be happy to!  It's as fun for us as it is for you!  Minus those lights...  We were baked crispy...  Plus, we are working on a twist for the costume for Sakuracon.   :-X

Aww, that's too bad. I liked that costume. I understand wanting new ones, though. I only brought one old one this year. Good luck with your new stuff, then.

Yeah, I was at MEW ^^
I was Riku for that game I think...

But yeah, that noise will probably return for future events. I was gonna do it as a joke for one of my attacks, but never got to it.

@ Blizzara- First, might I just say you had a fantastic costume? It was quite fabulous :)
Second, I know what you mean. I think it should just go without saying that if you're taking someone out who has yet to have a battle, draw it out. This was my first year of cosplay chess so my first battle was rough, but my second one was a great length. And if you see the battle coming, talk to the piece. That's what the girl I battled the second time did (I can't remember her naaaaaaaaaaaaaamed D8 She was great, though!). Maybe if we'd shut up during the meeting we all would have been better informed...

Why thank you for the kind words, although my girlfriend chelseahavoc deserves the credit since she is the one who made it for me.

Honestly, this year Cosplay Chess was kind of a mess. Alternates got way too jumpy and jumped in when they shouldn't, no one really listened, and the battles were just kind of haphazard. It seems like people are trying to turn what should be a fun game into unorganized dribble that anyone in a costume can join in on. Sadly if this keeps up Cosplay Chess might become a thing of the past...

Was I the only one becoming scared by the fact that people were just <i>giving their weapons</i> to White Mokona?
Scared??? I found it hilarious it was awesome to see white mokona with all those weapons. She just kept getting more and more excited with all those weapons.

It was hilarious...last year. This year it went waaaaay too far. It'd be one thing if it was only the other pieces, giving her their weapons once they were taken out or handing her a weapon when she got into a fight. When audience members get up, walk into the middle of the stage(some of which could've damaged the chess board by wearing improper foot wear, but that's beside the point), and interrupt the show just so they can feel special is going too far. At one point it became a safety hazard with Inuyasha's sword! Like I said, if you are a teammate and want to help out then fine, but alternates and audience members who shouldn't even be participating in the game unless summoned should not have anything to do with it.

In short, it's acceptable to a point and this year went to that point, spit in its face, and kept on running.

@ Neko- I think you were the Riku I was laying on when all the silver haired people died xD But I loved how you took the piece out! It was so Gaara! Gaara with a dolphin noise... my brain just melted

On the weapons thing: It was okay when the Mokona's were getting weapons from our team. Roberta had a suitcase full of them; why not use them? It made sense. Our team had enough weapons for both sides as it was. I ended up giving my weapon to Grell when Jack the Ripper was getting taken out because you can't fight Terra with a pair of safety scissors (Though Madame Red ended up with it). As soon as people came up and gave their weapons to Mokona, it got old fast. Plus, it was an interruption.

Next year, something should be said right before, directed towards everyone: If you are not the pieces involved in the battle, you are not allowed on the board without their permission. This includes alternates. If you get on the board without permission, you will be removed from the room and not allowed to return.That should keep people off.

^exactly what i was thinking! it should just be something announced before anything involving people and the audience being so close.


@blizzara: i love how you just say everything i couldn't remember XD everything was a safety hazard. people stepping on people's clothes, people running on and off the stage when they shouldn't, i was really getting annoyed and just plain angry. but let's just hope security is better and rules are announced at the beginning before hand so this doesn't happen again :3

One thing that bugged me was the pre-meeting. People, we get that you sholudn't grab hair and you shouldn't mess with costumes! So why did we spend 20 minutes talking about it? The statement/questions that made sense were things like you, luvan, who said your weapon was fragile, or like the scarfs being used as magic. Those are important things. People should just know to stay away from wigs and costumes. It is, after all, a con

Hehe, it's what I do lol. Seriously though, safety is the top concern, not how many people we can use in every single match or how awesome of a weapon we can get a Mokona to wield. People seem to take safety as a second to having fun, but in reality they need to be hand in hand.

You'd actually be surprised how quickly people can forget some of that stuff, but at the same time we didn't need to spend that much time on it. A quick reminder is good, a lecture on it is not. The big thing though is making sure these get ENFORCED, not simply mentioned then forgotten.

I actually ended up making a thread on what went wrong and what we can fix if any of you want to check it out.

@ Luvan: I was so worried I was going to have to fight you o.o Though I probably could have just creeped you off the board like I did with Link... I really wanted to fight you or Terra... or both >.<

Also, the thing about people running on the board has another issue: The audience can't see anything. It makes it hard on those nearer to the back with only the camera to see. I even had issues and I was in the front row.

The camera was at an odd angle. I was watching it at one point (I swear I'm borderline add) and all I saw was a pile of fangirls on Japan. I mean, they saw him kill himself, but probably got confused otherwise.

interesting. i think they need one towards the stage where the chess masters are, and one where the chess pieces are. live and learn.

Yeah, but at least they had a camera. It could have been a lot worse. Maybe they couldn't get another camera?

possibly. i know there were only two, and they were pointing to different angles at some point, but that makes it confusing. x.x

The little video thing? Yeah... though doing that wouldn't be that bad if they had one on the masters and one on the pieces, since then they could have the masters big during a move with a little one of the pieces, and then the pieces big during a fight with the masters as a small. Then it'd feel like sports...

It was hilarious...last year. This year it went waaaaay too far.

Thank you. For those who know AkiCon, it felt like it was close to that disaster, but not quite.

The last time I was in Kcon's chess, it was a lot funnier, more organized, and overall just /better/ (I think this was two years ago). I'm weary about participating in it again...I may just stick to SakuraCon's.

On another note, I thought Wheatley was adorable. =3 Although the game was so long that I could tell the people on stage were running out of witty banter to exchange...

^We tried to make the game go faster...but it was hard with me being an inexperienced master. It also takes forever and a day to make sure every piece gets used before getting annihilated.
