Battle Cosplay was one of the events that I would've loved to have attended and participated in at NDK '06, though I ended up not making enough time for myself for it. So, for those who were there, and for those who took part in it -- how was it? What were your experiences of it?

It was fantastic!! :D Too bad you missed it, it was great. I was in the winning team. There were about 16 teams altogether. >XD You should really get there early next year so you can sign up. Its so much fun.
There is a video on YouTube that has the final round.

Battle cosplay uses the D&D dice style. Teams of two sign up and you get your stats rolled for you. Then its kind of plays out like a one-on-one fight on stage, but when one person is "killed", their teammate comes up to take their place. The DM (or whatever) yells out what move is supposed to be played and the players have to act it out. Its no contact, so you can only pretend to beat the ever-loving-crap out of the other guy.
Teams are eliminated one by one and then there's the final fight between the two top teams.

There are vids of it on YouTube, you should check them out. Not only do you get a good idea of what Battle Cosplay is, some of them are VERY funny to watch.
