After Dark Dating Game 2018

Post by Cavara » Tue Jan 09, 2018 10:01 pm

Hello Everyone

It is time once again for the biggest, best, most romance fueled event of Anime Boston to once again take flight at Anime Boston 2018.

Some of you might be asking, what is the After Dark Dating Game? It is a fun fueled game of romance and intrigue. One Bachelor or Bachelorette is brought onto stage. This individual then begins asking questions of three mystery contestants who are kept anonymous via a divider hiding their identities. The questions range from the bizarre to the lecherous to the hilarious as the bachelor or bachelorette tries to find true love from their three mystery suitors. The audience will cheer, antagonize, laugh, and cry through the ups and downs of lightning fast love.

There will be multiple rounds of this and we need individuals who are willing to find, or vie for love in this competitive and often times humorous arena. For this we are recruiting cosplayers to compete in our love filled event.

For those willing to apply you just need to make sure you follow our application rules and guideline below.

: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 applications from characters that originally hail from a japanese created media. That means we cannot accept anything from Batman, Stephen Universe, Avatar, 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. I will not bend on this one thing.

Now if your looking for applications for Dating Game as well as our many other thrilling events follow the link below.

This year we also have the special ability to apply as a host for any of our wonderful events.

Now some of you might be wondering. "What kind of experience do I need for an event like this." The answer is simple, any roleplaying, improve, and even previous anime boston experiance is awesome. But that is not at all, we have take all types of contenders here and if you think you have what it takes just send us an application and fight for your love.

Your Friendly Cosmic Matchmaker Coordinator

7pm? That seems a bit early, as in the past none of the 18+ stuff started until after 8pm.
Unless you are including seating time, as that did usually start between 7:30 and 8.
It is crazy how long that line gets, and it has to be scrunched up in the Sheraton hallway and then down the hall. And the Orange and Red shirts have to check everyone's ids. So the line does not move as fast as some would like it to.

7pm is correct, seating should be beginning at 6:30

Sunset is at 7:07 PM, so technically it's not dark yet.

I think you need to change the name to It'll Be Dark Soon, We Promise! Dating Game.

Edit: This will be even more of a problem in 2022...

During our department meeting when choosing participants, we started referring to it as the Mating Game. We don't always have the best ideas, but we have the ones that matter. ;)

After Dark Dating Game 2018

Post by MichaelZed » Tue Jul 24, 2018 8:03 pm

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 dont 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

We get a lot of questions and posts about the convention on these forums. While we appreciate that you might want to help your fellow attendees, please don't post as Cosplay Games staff.

We want to avoid confusion by attendees, especially if they receive information that's not correct or wholly accurate from another attendee. Sometimes people will get an answer from non-staff and think it's official.

If you have any questions about the Cosplay Games, feel free to contact us through the Anime Boston contact form.

We will be posting information about our 2019 lineup soon, so be on the look-out! Locking the 2018 thread.
