Hosted by Anime Boston
In Cosplay Human Chess a giant chess-board is set up on stage and costumed convention attendees, dressed as their favorite anime and manga characters, serve as the pieces. At the direction of two chess masters, the participants move, fight, and die live on stage. Each year's chess showdown has a unique storyline and themed teams, such as: Magic vs. Science, or Good vs. Evil. Chess is usually a combination of improvisation and pre-scripted events, with a different balance every year between the spontaneous and the pre-planned. Participants apply online before the convention, and are chosen in advance.
