MetroCon did a cosplay battle chess or so I heard. Sounds like a lot of fun as long as you have enough cosplayers for it.

P.S. If its not hinted at enough, I'm interested. :D

I'm in since I'll have Axel for a short period of the con... the other costumes really won't work so well for any of those ideas. :P

Battle chess: You have a cosplayer for each chess piece. The King of each side makes the decisions on moves. Players move like chess pieces still. Apparently the chess pieces can sometimes make their own decisions depending on their character and disposition. But when battles happen between chess pieces, its actually role-played.

This is just going off what I've heard about it. I've never played but it sounds like a lot of fun!

Basically, that's what it is. However, there is a catch.

Most anime chess matches (i.e. Metrocon's), are completely scripted/choreographed and staged. Much like the ones you'd see at renn faire. Those also have live steel and are set on a stage for the audience to watch. They tend to have story lines (however small they may be).

Anime Boston did a different style, where people signed on to be specific chess pieces (any character), and two audience members would literally play chess, with each piece taking out another via two given moves (attack or super attack). Keep in mind, that was a real game of chess...aka long. Little to no dialogue, unless made up on the spot by the chosen pieces.

Honestly, a free lance chess match would be a bad idea. Not only for how complicated it'd be to set up (especially at this short a notice) but dangerous as well. We don't need people getting their skulls bashed in by an over zeolous Sora cosplayer's keyblade.

XD Cosplay chess as Yukishiro Enishi would be most amusing...or Kon from Bleach for that matter. >> Depending on if this gets started I may join in.

Maybe Cosplay Checkers would be easier and quicker. XD

Oi, can't you just see someone saying, "jump Queen" and then we all witness something VERY wrong! XD

Lol, checkers would be MUCH easier. I have no freakin idea how to play chess.

^^; Has anyone deemed themself in charge of this idea? 'cause if so, I'd like to know when and where-- It sounds like a blast (as long as someone mentions -beforehand- not to get carried away with jumping a pawn or attacking and hurt someone. XD)!
