Anime Boston 2016 Dating Game Information

Post by Snowtay » Sat Jan 02, 2016 4:34 pm

Good Afternoon!
I hope everyone's new year has started off well! With the applications having gone live yesterday, I am sure some of you have noticed that the Traditional Dating Game does not seem to be gracing the list this year. The cosplay games staff have made a commitment to increasing the variety of games that we bring to the convention (Check out the new Match game introduced this year!). In order to accomplish this, we looked at our list of our current games, and decided that having two dating games was rather redundant. Since the late night AfterDark Dating Game is often the larger and more popular of the two, it was decided that this was the event that we kept for the time being.

In the place of the normal dating game, the Couples Game that was introduced last year to a very positive reception will move into the spot, so I highly recommend that you check it out.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.

In past years I have done a themed round at one of the dating games, but since I am cutting it down to one game, I am going to play it by ear based on the applications. I don't want to force a round to fit a theme and have it fall flat when I could have a more entertaining non-themed round, since we will only have 4 rounds. Its my goal to bring everyone the best entertainment and fun possible. If it works, then hurray!

This might seem redundant, but would that mean Thursday at Midnight or Friday at Midnight? Thank you!

can anyone tell me what time it starts and ends? Because i just entered as my Friday night cosplay so i could bolt right out of there and go strait to my photo shoot ._.; (i'm hoping not to have to do a costume change) because that's alot of stuff to change in and out of ._.;

so please be kind and keep that in mind when you review my application: I hope i can get into it this year, last year i was turned down because I didn't have experience now i do...I also have exprence in the cosplay chess as well...
cosplays i have complete:
Rocket Member (myself as a team rocket member)
Yurio (yuri on ice)
Rinku (yu yu hakusho
Magi (aladdin Magnoshetot)

I am only so nice once your mean to me i will ignore you and pretend you don't exist: childish but effective
