In Penguicon 5.0's huge game room, half of a ballroom section will be devoted to Live Action Role Playing and giant human-sized boardgames. This one combines them, with chess tactics, resource management, and diplomacy, where players are chess pieces with agendas of their own.

I've been working on a variety of projects for a few years that have come together in this event, and it also borrows inspiration from Navia Dratp. Here's a link to the complete rules.

The object of ChessLARP is to capture the crowns of the Kings of both parties of chess pieces. Enter the board as a chess piece of your own design! Work together to capture whoever is the current King of the opposing party. But only do that in such a way that you are set up to backstab each other for one individual to wear both crowns! Watch out, the surviving members of the other party of adventurers can take their crown back! Will the two parties of adventurers work as a team to protect their crown, or will they munchkin in an attempt to keep it for themselves?
