Anime Human Combat Chess Match

Main Events - East Hall

Saturday July 21, 2018 - 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm

Often imitated but never duplicated, METROCON performed the first ever Anime Human Chess Match in 2004. This event is a unique fusion of Renaissance Faire combat chess and a scripted cosplay involving anime characters from multiple shows. Having the chess match scripted (much like a Renaissance Faire event) allows us to perform complex combat sequences that will be more exciting for you to watch. It also gives the match a deeper and richer storyline that brings the characters to life by intertwining them in an overall plot. “Finish him.” Titans clash in the METROCON 2018 Anime Human Chess Match – we won’t give away too much, but this year’s show is the culmination of schemes that threaten the existence of the Nexus of Worlds itself! Expect action, drama, and of course, fighting – your favorite characters are brought together in a climactic battle in the fight of the century. Join us this year at METROCON 2018 to see the players, what their game is about, and why this contest is a whole new animal…
