Tomorrow (Saturday!)! Humans-as-chess-pieces-in-a-death-match fun! Last I heard they’re still looking for players (and playas). :D See below:
Renowned Italian conceptual artist & two-time Milano Chess Invitational Champion Santo Talone will face-off against locally lauded Douglas Paulson in Greenpoint’s 1st Annual Human Chess-to-the-Death Match.
Please join these competitors on the sidelines, or better yet: on the battlefield. It will take nerves of steel to be one ofthe 32 pieces. This is not an exercise in standing still. There will be dance moves, cussing, war-cries, face painting, and many many secret tricks up your sleeves. (Those sleeves, drinks, and tricks will be provided.)
