COSPLAY CHESS: AM2 2011

Hello one and all! Welcome to the official Cosplay Chess Thread. Please be sure to keep track of the other thread over on the AM2 forum or Follow us on facebook: Socal Cosplay Chess! (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Socal-Cosplay-Chess/156675547718394) Note: If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact us through the Facebook page!

What is Cosplay Chess? Cosplay Chess is a game in which the cosplayers are used as the pieces for an epic chess match controlled by their Mighty Kings!! The game itself is played out just like a normal chess match. The players will make their moves on a regular chess board and then the Pieces will move to the corresponding locations on a large scale chess board which they'll be standing on. At each confrontation the attacking piece will have a "Battle" with its target. We hope you'll come to watch, or if you think you can meet the call to arms sign up to play!

My point is they are not geographically that far apart. You could still attend AM2 for the cosplay chess and go to AX. You could do both in the same day extremely easily.

No expo this year? :( I understand. I will catch you at ALA then! I love cosplay chess. AX won't be the same without it.

I know AnimeFEST gave a refund the year I almost flew to Dallas, but couldn't. Maybe you could call and ask for a refund from AX?
