Well as the title of the topic says we're going to be featuring cosplay chess at NDK this upcoming year.

If you're unfamiliar with what cosplay chess is you can check out this,
nifty site which by way of a fan suggestion inspired us to bring the event to NDK.

What we need to pull this off are 32 cosplayers (you) to play the pieces on the chessboard. If you're interested in playing a game of cosplay chess with us then read on and we'll tell you what you need to know.

Things you need to know before signing up
*You do not have to be pre-registered for the convention to participate. However we would ask that only people who are sure they will be coming to NDK sign up.
*This will most likely happen Sunday Morning but not before 10:00am.
*This event should take no longer than an hour and a half. Including Set up, game play, and the award ceremony that will follow the game.
*Players are required to check in on Saturday morning from 9 to 10 in the autograph area.
*Players are responsible for 'creating' attacks/counter attacks to be used against other players. These can be attacks that are from the series, game or made up attacks, but please keep them in character. If you're having trouble coming up with something we can always help.
*Alternatively players are responsible for 'creating' reasons why an attack would fail, should you be on the receiving end of a attack. Once again if you're having trouble we can help.

How to sign up
*You'll need the following info:
~Series or Game its from
~You're name (The one that will be on your badge, if your pre-registering for the convention, If not the name you expect to be on the badge.)
~Attacks/Counter Attacks and Failed Attacks

*Once you have all that you have 2 ways to contact me:
1. PM me on this board
2. Email me @ cosplay at ndkdenver dot org

Once I get all the players I need I'll email you back with your position.

Thanks for playing! ^.^

That sounds like so much fun! When I thought of Cosplay Chess I thought it'd be a lot more boring...

I'd like to join but alas, I think I'm too shy. xD

Just so everyone knows the cosplay chess game is now full. I still have to hear back/get in contact with three people, if I don't hear from them by Friday I'm gonna plug in the three others who emailed/pmed me wanting in.

So soon I will have a list of people who are playing and what pieces they are. Yay!


05-23-2007, 07:22 PM
Oops X3 I need to finish my attack list I think... I'll have that to you by Saturday ^_^

I'll see if I can get a Wiz/With plushie (or cosplayer XD) to use for an attack...


Kakashi Hatake
05-24-2007, 01:58 AM
Bwah-ha! I wonder what piece I am? O_o; XDDD

Kakashi King? Pawn? Rook? . . . Queen? O_O;;; XDDD

This should be an interesting game... XP


05-25-2007, 01:07 AM
Dark is no one's pawn! Queen XD That'd be hilarious...

Canon Pairings vs. Crack XD


Kakashi Hatake

And I just got back from running wizard chess, which was a blast by the way. ^.^ So I started the piece lottery by picking out several characters to be Kings and holding a little lottery for them. For the queens I dumped in all the female characters into the lottery because there wasn't that many of them.

So without further adu, the Kings and Queens:

White King: Yondaime
White Queen: Princess Daisy

Black King: Balthier
Black Queen: Matsumoto Rangiku

XDDDDDD Balthier!

EDIT: Sent in the rest of my info ^_^ I suppose I'll have to brush up on my German >.>;;; Er... Especially seeing as I don't know any in the first place XD The first bit is from episode 2 and the second is a piece from episode 7. Yay for subtitles! XD

(If anyone speaks German, drop me a line please! Dark has a fairly long line that I stuck into Babelfish and I can't make too much sense of it O_O)

This is posted on the NDK forum as well but I announced some of the other chrarcters, not all cause I'm mean like that. So here's a couple more for ya.

Black Knight: Dark (This one amused me.)
White Bishop: Kakashi

Kakashi Hatake
05-27-2007, 12:11 PM
YAY!!! XD Well I woulda preferred a Rook but a Bishop works too! XP hehehe XD

05-27-2007, 12:24 PM
Ah man i love the line up for this!!! Though as you all have said, Dark Queen would have been hilarious:crylaugh:

05-27-2007, 04:22 PM
But Dark? A Black Knight? That's bloody amazing!!! XD

The only thing that'd possibly make it better is if there was a Krad for the White Knight. Oh well X3


05-28-2007, 11:08 PM
Awww man. The choices for chess pieces so far is so awesome!

I'm so excited to see how it all will turn out now. Though, I'm really scared I'm gonna be a Pwned Pawn.... xD. BUT keeping my fingers crossed~

Hahaha, I particularly found the Black King's character to be quite the laugh. xD

Just so everyone knows the time for the chess game has been changed. Set up starts at 11:00am, the game starts at 11:30am and goes till 12:30. Basically it was moved one hour back.

08-19-2007, 08:19 PM
No slots left?? ; ;

Is there a waiting list of some kind that I can put my name on??

Lady Neese
08-20-2007, 01:24 AM
Yep you'd be #3 on the waiting list right now.

08-20-2007, 11:22 PM
#3? Is that good? It sounds good... o.o;;

When is this all happening?
Do I need to tell you which cosplay I'll be in?
