Yea, Im pretty tired of being Renji. Not that I dont still love Renji but Iv got to change things up a bit every now and then. Besides, I want to go as Kanda and I hate wigs. So its easier to do two characters with black hair anyway.

That's how I feel about Martel. Although i use my real hair for her. but getting it cut and dyed right before cons can be a hassle.

I definetly want to sign up for this!
My friend Bryce did this at S-con, it was SO funny to watch!
I don't have my Axel cosplay done though, I still need the coat and to finish the chakrams (the wig is on it's way, I'm so excited!)
So I can't really submit a form right now...or maybe I can cosplay chess in my Kanda cosplay...
What do you guys think? should I D. Grey-man cosplay chess? or go Axel? : D

Yeah it kinda sucks cause last year I didn't find any D. grey-man cosplayers (except A-Key-Kyo)
So my sister and I decided to cosplay as them to sakuracon, there were quite a bit there.
You can never get enough of Axel! I know kingdom hearts is WAY overdone in cosplay, but I don't want to judge it on how many people do it, I'm gonna do it cause I WANT to. I know I should probably be more creative in my cosplay selections (like something that isn't cosplayed as much) but I've been wanting to do Axel for years. I think I will do Axel for cosplay chess though....I want them to play his battle theme xD

Pshaw, don't listen to people who down the cosplay. Cosplay what you want.

D: I still do FMA and everyone aparently hates that >> Some girl at Kumori was like "Ugh FullMetal." and I turned around, "Some say FullMetal?" and she was like "Ugh." and rolled her eyes at me.

FMA rocks, no question about it.

Hum, anybody know when the actual sign-ups are? Also, I have three options for cosplay should I choose to participate:

Thief King Bakura;ancient egypt version - Yu-Gi-Oh!
Dark - DN Angel
Heero Yuy - Gundam Wing

which one do you guys think? I'm thinking either Bakura or Heero, though Dark would be funny as well if I get that costume completed in time. Damn wings....*grumbles*
-Bakura/Heero

Eh...patience is virtue I guess.
By the way, I know they don't base the decisions on who signs up first, but how DO they decide? best costumes? O.o

Sakura con was the most experienced.
This could be first come first serve
Or just how characters may relate.

Rules and sign-ups for cosplay chess should be up by June 1st (I will start another thread with that info).  Participation is not first come, first serve... it depends on your cosplay.  Preference will be given to complete cosplays, of recognizable characters, and unique ones... there won't be duplicate characters on the board.

No music is required/being used during the battles... if it's something that you simply must have, then talk to me and maybe we can work something out.   Our matches are not decided prior to the event, so we don't have any scripting, which can make it a bit more difficult when it comes to stuff like music.

Go ahead and call me a noob, but with the mention of battles and matches, it sounds like cosplay chess is different from the normal tabletop game. What's the difference other than real people in cosplay?

It's the same game as the normal tabletop game, except people in cosplay are the pieces.  The battles are when on piece takes another... you already know which piece loses, it's how they lose that is the fun :D

That's kind of unfortunate considering in a real chess game, pieces may not ever get a turn or are simply taken right off the bat.

Go ahead and call me a noob, but with the mention of battles and matches, it sounds like cosplay chess is different from the normal tabletop game. What's the difference other than real people in cosplay?

It's the same game as the normal tabletop game, except people in cosplay are the pieces.  The battles are when on piece takes another... you already know which piece loses, it's how they lose that is the fun :D

I was gonna say, if it were like what I had in mind and like I had watched on youtube for last year, I thought they played amtgard style and fought for their spot, where if they get body tapped they're dead or if they get tapped in the arm or leg it goes away. Also, is there going to be a black and white board or from what I saw, taped off squares?

And how is that decided? Beforehand or simply announced during the match...?

That's kind of unfortunate considering in a real chess game, pieces may not ever get a turn or are simply taken right off the bat.

ya true, but what ya gonna do pre scripted has its positives and negatives but i think just playing without knowing is alot better =D

True, if you play a game of strategy.  But if you do like last year's game... strategically, it was probably the worst game ever, but every piece played.  Some more than others, obviously, but everyone participated.

Organizer of the SakuraCon and Anime Evolution chess games here. I really wish I could make it to kumoricon this year, but alas I already have a ticket to PAX. I would just like to put out the suggestion of pre-scripting the moves based on a professional chess match (I get mine from chessbase.com). I cannot tell you enough how much it was worth it doing it at SC this year. I didn't get 1 complaint about the game being a horrible game of chess (well, one, but their complaint wasn't valid because they didn't know the rules of chess), every piece got to move because I chose a game that had that, and this allowed the pieces to co-ordinate their battles a lot more. If you have the time to do that, the results will certainly be worth it.

Why not have the kings hold the scripts and give commands to their pieces? That way the critical players can know what the next move is and other pieces don't know who's fighting who until the command is issued. Kind of in the middle of both ideas. 8)

Yea, thats the way we did it at Sakuracon.

My friend and I got to mod one game at Fanime last weekend.
I was mini Byakuya and he was normal Byakuya.
It was an epic time paradox battle. ( Ended in a tie coincidently) I wouldn't minded doing that part again.
