Ew....College....Been there, done that. Would a crossplayer qualify for a Queen piece? If not then I'll gladly take a Bishop or Knight position for either side! We spoke last year but unforunately it was not able to happen. I'm all for it this year though.

Burjit, I would prefer you take a knight or bishop. ^^

Varun, Right now, Me and another organize will control the pieces, though if others want to, we can rotate them in as well.

I've seen a couple other topics you made on this, Kasemei. Is this the 'official' one for ACEN 2009?

So do the people controling the pieces get to be the kings? It would just be really cool and offer a totally different gameplay if the contorller is actually on he board... but w/e

Green Dragon :Yes. This is the official thread for 2009. There are two threads that I have made for this subforum. One is this one, which is the whole discussion aspect.

The other thread is where you register as a piece and as a compeititor. XD

Varun, as much as I would like to do that, I think it would be a little confusing. It'll be easier just to have people be able to walk around the board or stand on elevated platforms so they can play easier.

Yes, I know that which is why I said so, it would give chess a completely new style of gameplay, and strategy.... then again I'm just thinking out aloud

Varun: I agree. It is a good idea. I just think it'll be a bit confusing, especially because we don't know how much space we'll get and stuff. Right now, the board that my friend made for this year's board was two by two feet per square, so 256 square feet. However, there is a problem. I have no idea where ACen stands about whether we are supposed to create a board out of tape, or out of fabric. The issue when we began working this year was that we were not allowed to tape a board, and so my friends and I suggested the fabric board. After one of our group bought the fabric and was halfway done with the board (about two weeks before con), we were notified that since we had been moved to the convention center, that union workers had to lay down the board. This meant that making the fabric board was worthless, because ACen would have to pay union workers anyway, so they might as well tape down a board.

A week before ACen, the event was cancelled. Therefore, I have no idea what kind of board and what size we can even anticipate, let alone the room space. The reason that we were put into the convention center, and not the Hyatt itself last year was due to room space issues.

I will bring the subject up to the other people working with me to make this event happen, and I'll reply about it soon. For now, we know that we have stuff done. We've got a board, we've got the idea, and we want to do it. We just want others to want to do it as well.

Alkaren: Yeah, I know. I wasn't sure if he was still the head or not. Since there hasn't been an official post about who is where and what email they should be contacted by yet on the ACen website, I don't really know what to do yet.

However, this thread is to serve a dual purpose. It is to promote awareness of the event, as well as answer questions regarding the event. I will send in the proposals and everything needed as soon as I can find information on who to send it to. Last year, I guess I sent it too early or something, and it went to the wrong person. After not receiving a reply, I sent a few other emails out. After no reply, I ended up adding Will English on Facebook to get a hold of someone that might know what was going on. I don't want a whole goosechase again. I want to get straight to who I need to talk to. If that takes a little waiting, so be it. Wheee!!!

Oh yeah, if it's during the masquerade, I might have to opt out. I missed Masquerade for my catholic confirmation. I'm atheist anyway, making it doubly frustrating.

Krystal and Imaurel: Yeah. I agree. It won't happen during masquerade. If it happened during Masquerade, even I would have to opt out. XD

Oh!! This sounds fun. It's the first I've heard of it, but I'd love to do it!! I'll be Cornelia from Code Geass at Acen, but I'm in a Renaissance Guild on campus and we do human combat chess at our Faire! ^_^ So, how does this chess work? Do you win normally like any piece takes a piece or does it depend on character or things?
