News for Vericon 2007:

Vericon to hold cosplay human chess game

Watch your favorite anime/fantasy/sci-fi characters battle it out in world's most famous game of war. See Queen Akane defend the King of All Cosmos from the assaults of Drogo! Gasp as Witch Hunter Robin tries to set fire to Treebeard!

How does Cosplay Human Chess work? In ordinary Human Chess, thirty-two participants act out the parts of chess pieces on a giant board as two players direct from above. Cosplay Human Chess is the same, except that all the pieces are in costume, and act out their moves as their characters would. Only the two main players need chess experience.

If you are in the Boston area, come join us for cosplay fun!
