Anime Human Combat Chess Match

Main Events - East Hall

Saturday August 5, 2017 - 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.
