Calling all gamers. It’s time to change your well-worn t-shirt, put down your console and get ready to meet other gamers.

The three-day cosplay and gaming extravaganza kicks off on Thursday October 26 until Saturday October 28 and you’ll be able to pit your wits (and your thumbs) against your rivals in gaming tournaments across the weekend.

There’s all kinds of cool things to keep you entertained throughout the fun-filled weekend, including some star appearances from the gaming world’s biggest names. Prices are yet to be announced, but kicked off at Dhs115 for day tickets last year, so watch this space.
