Re the Cosplay Chess: when I saw it at Sakura con and SacAnime, the moves appeared to be already plotted out, so that what you saw was not a live game, but almost a performance in itself.  THAT would be cool.  It may be able to be held in under 30 - 45 minutes.  The pieces would have to have a rehearsal before hand.  The chessplayers would call out the moves.  The pieces would move and if against another piece, have a battle appropriate to their characters.

Re: the Iron Cosplay idea (sorry, I didn't read all the posts through to this point), I like Iron Cosplay, I think it needs a large room so there's plenty of space between the contestants (so they're not crowding each other).  Plus the audience needs to be entertained while they're waiting.

Ah, how about a Scavenger Hunt-Iron Cosplay?  Everyone gets a list of items, they have to find said items within an hour (if we could get the dealers to participate, maybe, not necessarily volunteering items but we could place the items at a particular booth, the hunters need to find the right booth) then bring everything back and build a costume out of it.  Like a two part game.  Aw, crap, I need to think this through.

Is this sounding more like that supermarket sweep game?

It's late and I need coffee.  Plus I've been off the forums for so long and this setup is a little confusing for me.   ???

Woooo... I'm honestly not gunna read the previous pages to see if they said what I think already, so off I go to evaluate the suggestions!

The first one I didn't really understand, not because it's a bad description, but because it doesn't process in my brain.  Might wanna have a better title for it.  I'll try to look at it tommorow, when I'm awake.

The chess idea is brilliant, though we would have to have registered teams go and compete with each other.  Additional twist?  Probably that they would have the king be the only one able to move people around, and from that angle, assuming they are standing (akin to Harry Potter and the .... chamber of secrets... wow, almost forgot what it was called) on top of the tiles, it would be harder for the king to move around, giving an added amount of difficult.  Also we would have to have no one from one team able to talk to to the king.... more difficulty.

The third idea is a must.  It's a proven thing, and again, we'd have registration at least two months beforehand, but then it would probably work.  Interesting, fun, and a good thing overall.

Fourth idea is probably a no, because then you would need heavy administrative handling on that area.  I don't know the exact mechanics of the fanime administration, but then I'm not sure it would be entirely possible.  They would have to make sure that no one does anything dangerous, obscene, etc.

So that's my five cents.  Sorry for any repetitious info.

Hahahahaha. I got my post deleted because of Pyron messing around.

Anyways, I'll try to retype what I had posted before.

-Rubs chin for a bit to recollect.- ... I had said... This is a great idea. I normally wouldn't think much of cosplay chess as an event, as each time I've spectated, they were very disorderly and anarchic... which doesn't work in chess. Having a single person off the board and commanding pieces isn't any more amusing than playing actual chess, really, besides the fact that your pieces are live people... but the additional twist of BEING one of the pieces is a brilliant idea. The competitive pressure would also make the game more motivating to play, and perhaps even have people take it more seriously whilst playing. I don't see any reason why this cannot happen.

I don't believe Fanime administration would approve of this idea for... obvious reasons.

Don't apologize. So far, I find your posts very enjoyable to read.

Maybe you shouldn't be posting things that get you in trouble while using my internet.  Go home.  Don't you have school or something?

Seriously.

Greetings my fellow Fanime goer-ians-nessness.  I was poked to come post here since posting this in another thread... dealing with the cosplay chess idea.

Well, since there is always a need for players there is also a need for a board, which .. is basically why I'm posting in the first place.  For, I have one .. its in a box needing to be cleaned oh so muchly.  It was made for AX chess and is now spreading across the land, or at least the the cons I go to.  Why? 'cause cosplay chess is fun.  So, if this idea gets underway then it'll be another happyhappy reason to haul it up on the fantastic five hour road trip of dooooom

and ~ here's a picture of it: http://www.chirigami.net/misc/finished-01.jpg
it's pretty big, I think like either 20-24 feet across?  And it has rings on each corner so it can be staked or tied down. Yaddayaddayadda.

yeeeeah, I'm going to like go blob now since I've had no sleep 8D
yaaaay schoooooool

Just an idea, kinda like monopoly or chess.  I saw this at a ren faire over the summer but why not make a gaint board game.  We could make a huge dice that you have to thow to roll (not something heavy of course) and the players move along a path(s) (maybe more then one direction like mario party) and on certain tiles they land on they have to be asked triva questions or do something silly (nothing illegal mind you or disgusting) or it effects thier player (lose in point, sent back to start, switch with another player, etc)

This could do in many different directions,  There could be points, or prizes.  Special items you get in the game that effect other players. 

Sorry if this has already been mentioned.  I kinda skimmed the pages.

I saw some people having a turn-based battle that looked HILARIOUS and so much fun. If we could get some way to referee that, it would be awesome to do!
