2018 Cosplay Match Game

Post by Cycrino » Fri Dec 29, 2017 11:05 am

Hello everyone and welcome back to another exciting year of the Anime Boston 2018 Match Game!
(Not to be confused with the Death Match, which you can learn about here: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=22108&sid=e15420c0e ... d0#p288358)

If you're familiar with the game Apples to Apples, then good news: you're familiar with the Match Game. Contestants try to fill-in-the-blanks, along with a panel of celebrities. Points are awarded every time a celebrity answer matches a contestant answer. The contestant with the most matches throughout the game wins!

I'm looking for cosplayers that can deliver awesome in-character responses that'll make the audience laugh.
New this year: applications are open for "Contestants" as well as our "Celebrity Panel". If this message intrigues you, come apply! Applications for Cosplay Match Game and all other Cosplay Games Events will open on January 1st, 2018 at noon and will remain open through the end of February.

Go to the Cosplay HQ page on the Anime Boston website to apply to Cosplay Games:

:arrow: A reminder: Anime Boston is an anime convention that is part of the New England Anime Society (NEAS). As such, we can only accept characters that originally hail from Japanese-created media. That means we cannot accept anything from shows like Batman, Stephen Universe, Avatar the Last Airbender, Overwatch, etc. This is not my rule, but it is a very important rule that has consequences for the convention itself if I break it. There will be no exceptions.

Come, join me for another hilarious year of the Match Game! I'm looking forward to all your awesome cosplays!

I was the Edward Elric at last year's Match Game! I probably won't be able to do it again because I can't think of any costumes I'm bringing that would suit it. However, if you're reading this and hesitating on applying, you should totally do it! Last year it was a panel of super nice and talented people, so you'll definitely have fun, even with interrupting fire alarms, haha! <3

Two years ago, when I went, contestants were pulled from the audience. Now, since you said you can apply for that, are "contestants" going to be cosplayers acting in character also? Bc if so, that's awesome and should be even more fun.

That is correct! This year, the team decided to spice things up a bit - both the "contestants" and "celebrity panelists" will be pulled from the cosplayer applicant pool.

For 2018, it would be cool if Gene Starwind could be the host. (Gene Rayburn was the name of the host of the show 'Match Game' back in the 1970s)
