It's to bring the next World Chess Championship to Vegas and have the players play on a giant chessboard with half-naked showgirls as the chess pieces.

Well, I think it's a good idea. I don't know if it will make any money.

Why half naked?

Maybe because the venue can't sell alcohol if they were fully naked?

But as good as this idea is, I'll go you one better.

Chess is far too slow and cerebral. Make it a checkers contest.

All that jumping would be fun. Plus, imagine what the procedure would be for kinging....

Showgirls? Even the kings? Sounds kinda girly to me.

How about Tic-Tac-Toe with the aforementioned showgirls as described? Mary, Mary, quite contrary.... (LOL.)

Why "half" naked? Why not "paint on clothes" ?

Admin note: removed link to www.djteddybear.com/images/nearly_naked.jpgAdmin note: removed image www.djteddybear.com/images/nearly_naked_small.jpg Admin note: removed link to www.djteddybear.com/images/naked_backs.jpgAdmin note: removed image www.djteddybear.com/images/naked_backs_small.jpg

FYI: From a distance, they appear to be wearing skin-tight costumes. When you get closer, you realize it's paint and think they are naked. Only when you get very close do you realize they are wearing G-strings and pasties that were also painted.

For the record, I think this would be a great bar type game, but also agree that checkers is the way to go. Jumping a teaser to the kinds of positions that Kinging would require!

Sports Illustrated doesn't bother with the G-string and pasties for their painted-on swimsuits. And Wiz, their lead painter has long been Joanne Gair. I have the book "In the Paint", and the work is beautifully done. (Another passive-voice clause, to allude to another thread.)

For the record, these pictures were taken at the welcome party Monday night.

I didn't even know there was going to BE a welcome party until I got the text reminder. I hear "party" and I think "free food". And then I see THAT! Sweet!

Maybe I missed something. If so, ignore this post. On the other hand, if Face's post is a humorous suggestion that sprinkler sprays might wash off the body paint shown in the recently-posted photos, the folks that do the Sports Illustrated paint-on swimsuits learned long ago that water-soluble paints are a bad idea. I suspect the folks at the G2E are sharp enough to learn such things from the mistakes of others.

Sorry to be such a spoil sport, but I'd hate for someone to get into trouble with the LVFD all for nothing.

It tends to alternate between by a pool with open bar and in a ballroom with open bar, but there's always an opening night reception. A few years back it was in a ballroom at the Paris, I think, and the music was so loud you couldn't hear anyone. Plus the food was awful that year. This year the food wasn't awful but it was very monotonous -- some variation of beef on a roll. The party was supposed to be at the Venetian pool but was moved inside at the last minute due to the thunderstorm earlier in the day which, ironically, had completely passed by the time the party was to have started. Still, with the painted ladies running around, I can see how they'd prefer to take no chances with wayward water.

Hehe, I'm sure it's latex based, or otherwise water-proofed. I'd think just natural body moisture would cause it to run or smear, especially in friction areas.

This topic's making me chuckle, looking at our society. You can be naked in public ONLY if you somehow camoflauge your naughty bits. I propose an experiment, if any of our members would participate.
Step 1 - One person gets naked and we paint clothes on them, similar to the pic earlier in thread.
Step 2 - One person wears a skin tight latex outfit but we paint them to look as if they were naked.
Step 3 - Send them on their way down the strip and place bets on who gets arrested first.

Best WovCon wager ever. =D
