Do you have the dexterity to put the King in checkmate? Or a cosplay that just DEMANDS you be our White Queen? Let’s see your moves in action, SIGN UP NOW!!!
How it Works: Cosplay Chess is a pre-scripted event that has your favorite characters battle for victory! Two teams of 16 players are given roles including King, Queen, Rooks, Bishops, Knights and Pawns. During battle, if a red pawn has to take out a blue pawn, those two players will stay on the board while the other pieces clear the way for battle. The red pawn will fight the blue pawn until they meet their demise! Once the piece is taken off the board, our other pieces take their places on the board once again, continuing the match. For your team to win the game, you must put their opposing King in checkmate!
Cosplay Chess is a PG-13 event. We do advise parents and younger audience members to take this into account.
IMPORTANT: Cosplay Event Rules and Regulations are posted on the Cosplay Events main page. If you have not already, review these BEFORE you apply to any ConnectiCon events. There may be something that is run differently at this convention than others that you have attended.
