Hey everyone! For those of you who have not seen me at past ACens, I'm Matt Duhan, owner of Gozer Games and creator of Collateral Damage: The Anime Board Game. Collateral Damage is the only Anime board game on the market, and we've had lots of success and fun selling it in the Exhibit Hall and playing it in the Tabletop Gaming area. ACen is our "home base" anime convention, and because of that I'm thinking of trying something special for 2010. Would there be any interest in me running a Life Size/Live Action/Cosplay version of Collateral Damage? That is, like Cosplay Chess, we would have volunteers play the various character pieces on the board, with a large board laid out in the middle of the room. I think that this could be a lot of fun. What do you think? Is this something that you would like to see at ACen? Is it something in which you would like to participate? Please let me know!

I would prefer for starters that it be limited to certain characters from the game. I am open to adding additional characters, but this would largely depend on being able to create a card for the character that would fit in well with the game. I do not think it is necessary to come dressed as your assigned character, though it certainly would make things more fun if you did. I am planning on having at least 1 character from the as-yet-unreleased expansion, so there will be some options for playing characters not yet in the game.

Thanks for your support of Collateral Damage! I'm glad that you love the game.

We're discussing it now, and the ConCom is interested in having it, if there is enough interest from attendees.

I was sleeping over at a friends house, and found your board game there. I felt pretty special.

Hey folks! I'm starting to cast parts for people. If you are interested in participating in this event, and playing a character in Live Action Collateral Damage, please email me at gozergames@gmail.com with "Collateral Damage Character" in the subject. If you are familiar with the game and have a character in mind, please let me know. Otherwise, we can chat to narrow down which character you would be most interested in playing.

Thanks!

Heya. Just so it's clear, this is NOT chess. This is Collateral Damage: The Anime Board Game. The game is actually more similar to Risk than chess.
Also, if you chose to be a character in the game, you would not have to play. You would be a piece on the board, which the players would tell you where to move. There would not be anything you would need to learn. If you wanted to make a costume for your character for cosplay that would be great, but you do not need to in order to join in.

As much as I'd love to, I doubt any of the characters I'm cosplaying as are characters for the game and I can't add any more to my list due to my budget. Also, there's something I have planned for midnight so I may not even be able to go.

Cosplay plans for Acen:
Minato Arisato (MC/Protagonist)-Persona 3 (winter uniform) [Got headphones, pants, and shoes. Jacket needs alteration.]
Akira-Togainu no Chi (default clothing) [need to style wig and remake knife and jacket. May also do one ending...]
Random Shinigami-Bleach [Just need to find a sword or make a sign...]

Hi there! To address your concerns, you don't have to cosplay as a character in the game in order to be involved. Also, we are scheduled to finish by 11pm, so you should be able to make it to your midnight event. I hope you'll be able to join us!

Awesome! I might be willing to participate, depending on when it is. I don't know how to play chess, so will I be expected to know how, or would someone just tell me where to go (like in wizard Chess from Harry Potter and The Sorcerers Stone)?

Sign ups on the spot are fine, but it will make things much easier if you contact me in advance. This way, you will have a better say in picking which character you want to play from the available ones left. If you can, please stop by booth 429 in the Exhibit Hall in order to sign up in advance.
