You have an opportunity to participate in a massive performance/game taking place on a continental scale. We will be playing the sixth Human Scale Chess Game in Austin on Sunday, May 15.
We need 32 volunteers with working cellphones to play the roles of the chess pieces. Sign up now and select the role you will play. To participate, you will need a working cellphone and a couple of free hours on Sunday May 15. Costuming is strongly enoucouraged.
SMS simulcasting and webcasting will likely be used during the Austin game.
We are also seeking expert players to play the master game. Additionally, we are looking for people interested in helping to document the game with video, still photography, audio, or any other format you can think of (digital media preferred).
We've had tremendous fun putting this on in different cities and hope you will be able to join us! the games are great fun and offer a totally different way to interact with your city and experience the game of chess.
There will be an afterparty. Check this page for updates as more details become available!
