But see what you mean, because it seems like every con, no matter the size, feels like they have to have Cosplay Chess now. I don't think it works well for smaller conventions, mostly because of lack a big enough space and/or participation.


I was at one convention that didn't have enough cosplayers to fill the board. All the pawns were represented by boffa swords. There were 3 people in the audience. However, since it was held at a college, the space they were using was nice. They just should have planned some other cosplay event that doesn't need 32 cosplayers.

Yes, I completely agree that it is not appropriate for smaller events. ...especially if those smaller events further limit themselves by trying to "theme" the chess match.

As for what game shows I like, Anime Unscripted and Hyakunin Kuizu are my favorites. ...but I'm biased.
