Anime Expo 2013 Cosplay Chess

COSPLAY CHESS: ANIME EXPO: NEVER DIE MODE 2013

Hello one and all! Welcome to the official Cosplay Chess thread for Anime Expo 2013. Also be sure to follow us on FaceBook for more information

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!

For Those of you who want to Play as pieces
Below is a link to download the application. Inside are all the rules and information necessary for applying. Please make sure to read them.

The Match-ups
Only those who sign up will play. If the roster is full for the game a backup list will be made. The backup list is decided by us as well. If you are going to be in the game, BE THERE EARLY We wanna make sure all things are managed and covered before the game goes on.

Alright fellow cosplayers!!!!

There's plenty of time before Anime Expo, but it's never too early to sign up!

Look forward to another memorable match this year! Who knows maybe there'll be a few surprises this year

Damn, I'm skipping out on the first day of the con this year due to the holiday. Guess I won't be signing up this year.

That is a typo I overlooked and will be edited. The date is not set yet for the convention.

It depends on the venue entirely but we try to aim for 2 o'clock. Enough time after lunch, people can sit down, enjoy a good show. That whole deal~
