Bleach Cosplay Chess 2009

Hello fabulous people, its that time again! Bleach Cosplay Chess for Fanime 2009 ~ I'll be setting up this thread up like last year [two posts], so feel free to yammer and discuss the game and whatnot and be on the look out for sign ups and time!

location: Fountains! Hilton side ~ Unless we're forced to move out of the way because the board is huge xD
time: 10am on Sunday, this is before Frisbee and the Gathering itself.

Hey Guys! Fanime will be taking group pictures during the Gathering this year. If you do not want to be included in those pictures please step aside for those photos. By remaining with the group when the pictures are being taken you give your consent to be photographed.

roster is: OPEN

So, to begin ~ What is Cosplay Chess? well, if you've been in a hole these past few years of convention goings, cosplay chess is played like regular good old fashioned chess but with human sized pieces dressed as their favorite characters in an epic battle of sorts. We have two players to the side playing on a regular sized chess board, directing where their human counterparts will go and attack the other side.

So what is the Bleach version? Same thing almost, just more predetermined and structured - well, we try to get it as such. Its Shinigami versus Arrancar, black versus white ... totally perfectly fitting, don't you think? Further rules and explanations will be in the following post

The pieces

white
King: HM Aizen [Stev, our friend]
Queen: Inoue Orihime [kit_kat]
Bishops[1]: Noitora Jiruga [Shinobi Yukari]
Knights[2]:
Rooks[2]:
Pawns[5]: Tesla [raenef13], Sun-Sun [waffle-lover26 (fanime forums)], Arrancar!Matsumoto [KittycatChi], Released form Ggoi [neko]

black
King: Shigekuni Yamamoto-Genryusai [Toshi's friend]
Queen: Soi Fon [Silent Flame, friend of ours]
Bishops: Ukitake Jyuushiro [Kanzake], Bankai Toushiro Hitsugaya [Ryusan777]
Knights: Shunsui Kyoraku [Wren], Shinji [Toshi_Riku]
Rooks: Komamura Sajin [Lordsnow], Kensei [trupnoi_25]
Pawns: Random Shinigami [Ginryuu], Young Byakuya [Yuu], Yoruichi [Fanime_love], Shunsui Kyoraku [ryuyasha3], Yadomaru Lisa(shinigami version) [MidnightRosebud], Nanao Ise [EeveeGirl101], Rukia [BumbleB], [there are a lot of people listed for this last spot, lets see who comes first!]

The players
white: Ggio [chaosbark]
black: Zero [DefectiveNaruto]

Mover/director/announcer: [might have one or two]
[probably will be me]

How to Sign Up
-Please Post the following-
username:
character name:
piece you'd like to have:
[note, you might not get it but we'll take it into consideration]

If you'd like to help out, providing .... anything, just post in the thread. We never know what we'd need. Water? Stuff? Yeah.
My group will be providing the huge chess board, the smaller chess board, prizes [though, feel free to supply some yourselves if you want] and good times.

RULES IN THE NEXT POST.

Rules and How this goes down:
. Yesyes, Bleach chess. So this is going to be white vs black, Arrancar vs Shinigami. Humans of Karakura town and Vaizards shall support the black while Hollows and Quincy will be supporting the white [sorry Ishida, you're wearing white.. you go on the white side .. and besides your kind hate the ShinigamixD]
. This is a first come first serve type sign up!
. We're hoping to get this to not only be appropriate colors but also pieces; ie: Captains and High numbered Arrancar being .. uh, the back row and Humans, Quincy, Vice Captains and such being pawns. Aizen being King on Arrancar side and Yama-jiji being King on the Shinigami side. Or just.. well, fitting xD

. okay, how we play the game.
. We have two players sitting to the side playing the game on a regular sized board and then one or two people moving the pieces on the big chess board.
. if you're attacking or dieing, we want you to be in character. Its more fun that way.
. with your attacks, please don't actually hurt people or ruin each other's costumes!
. if no check mate is established or time is running out, we will determine the winner either by Sudden Death, which is next color to lose a piece loses .. or who has the most pieces left on the board. If its down to the Kings, they play rock-paper-scissors, best 2 out of 3.
. if you're on the winning team, you get candy!

signing up ~
[ here I repeat some things xD]
. Sign up for your appropriate color and also character placing.
. first come first serve!
. If you sign up for a big piece, especially, and you're unsure if you will have the costume finished in time, please let us know as soon as possible so we can refill the position.
. when you sign up, we might be assigning you piece... because we want the game to be fitting. We're sorry, we're going to be nazi about this ^_^;
- it would be nifty if the players on either side were appropriate colors too.
. You can also sign up for back-up pieces and the like, just in case one piece doesn't show up on time.
. if you are a piece a player or a director, please show up early [at least 20 minutes]. If its getting close to game time and you're late.. you're position will be given up. We're sorry about this, but we have a limited time to play and we don't want to hold up the game.
. If the game is finished early then we'll see about playing a Round Two, then we'll pretty much have sign ups there, back ups will have priority xD

Piece specifications we thought would be nifty. We're going to kind of hold out on a lot of time to see if we can fill them, but after a while we'll let others fill them.
. Arrancar Orihime go on the white side, other Orihime go on the black side. School versions of shinigami are pawns. We really don't want a lot of repeats.. but if it happens.. it happens.
. We want an Aizen and Yama-jiji as Kings, Gin[HM version] - or Orihime if a Gin is not found - and Unohana or Soi Fong as Queens. We don't have ideal people for the other pieces but we want Captains and Numbers to be the Bishops, Rooks and Knights. Sorry Ichigos and Renjis.. you're pawns xD;

Okay, I think that's enough of rules. Let's get onto other stuff. If you're confused about anything, please feel free to ask us in-thread or PM either myself or kuroneko. If you'd like to help with anything, feel free to sign up We like help.

We will also be posting our telephone numbers closer to the con date so everyone will have a chance to get in contact with us.

Well, last year I got the thread up really late since I wasn't sure we were bringing up the board .. and I was in school. I should have the sign ups open sometime February, probably the beginning of the month unless stuff happens. So, this will get the word out more and also give people a chance to design what they're going to do ^__^

Yukari, that would be awesome if we could use it, it was pretty helpful at the few other cons we had chess at .. before they got a better sound system, lol.

Do you guys think we should change the location from the park to maybe closer to the con or even somewhere else? o-o This could also effect the time ... lots of things to figure out *rubs chin*

Well I guess if we hurry we could get a good place by the fountain or something?
and it depends really which hotel your staying at and which place would be nearer and more of your liking?

We usually stay at the Marriot and the board should be in the game room - pending I can get in contact with the gaming chair again like last year.. so everything should be pretty close. And I have minions to carry things for me - lol, like I could carry things in Goat!Nel xD
I'm more worried about stopping traffic near the fountain, unless we're closer to the street... unless we just do it in the game room since it had a lot of space
.... but I like the outside ;o;

hmm....well I suppose depending on the time we get there, having it out by the fountains wouldn't be such a bad idea, lots of space. but the crowd might get pretty big and with other gatherings going on it could be a problem unless like you said we move the board closer to the street end of the fountains...theres the game room too but I also like having it outside...well we have a bit of time to figure it out I suppose XD
lol ok I'll bring my megaphone with me out to the game (would like to participate in it anyways XD) and you and kuroneko are more than welcome to use it
