Cosplay Chess at Otakon Vegas is one of our many fan-run events!
Returning to Otakon Vegas is Cosplay Chess!
Two players will play an actual game of chess, with the help of 32 Cosplayers on a human-sized chess board! Any moves made will be mimicked on the life-sized chess board. If a chess piece is overtaken by another piece, then both chess pieces will have a quick battle on the chess board. You have to be improvisational during the fights and they need to be PG-13.
All participants are required to show up a half an hour before the event starts. Then you, along with 31 other Cosplayers, will be put on a human sized chess board. Two people will be playing an actual game of chess. Any moves that they do will be mimicked on the life sized board. If a chess piece is overtaken by another piece, then both chess pieces will have a quick battle on the chess board.
You have to be improvisational during the fights and they need to be PG-13. The Otakon Vegas Cosplay Chess Event is a family friendly event. All rules of the convention apply to this game as well, including rules for props and weapons. If you do not adhere to the rules of Cosplay Chess or the rules of the convention, you will be immediately removed from the game and possibly referred to Otakon Vegas Staff.
It would not be fair for our players if they had to start the game with missing pieces. We ask all our participants to show up 30 minutes before the scheduled start time so we can adhere to our allotted time on the schedule. We will start the game promptly by the time listed on the program schedule.
If you are early, you are on time. If you are on time, you are late. If you are late, YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BE ON THE BOARD. You have to be on the board ON TIME.
