Cosplay Chess

Cosplay is one of Asia’s favorite past times and chess is one of the world’s oldest games, played by millions of people worldwide. This year, we combine the two in a single delicious event. In this one-of-a-kind chess performance, characters come alive and fight to the death with charm, wit, and comedy. Cosplayers take the place of the pieces. There are choreographed fights that determine whether the piece is actually taken or not.

This event is open to all registered convention attendees. You must have a valid PMX badge for the day of the pre-meet and match in order to participate. We require sign-ups, though people who wish to play can always see if there is an open spot before the game starts (we sometimes have no-shows, and thus, need to fill the empty spots)

Exercise your mental abilities while dressed in your finest and show off your finishing move against other cosplayers in an epic battle of beauty and brains.
