Leisure Days is the first gaming festival held in Cluj-Napoca. It's dedicated to every gamer, amateurs of various popular games and also to the general public. During the festival, visitors can participate in various contests, such as eSports and board games. For the not-so-competitive gamers, they can join in various friendly matches of the presented games. Additionally, visitors can watch the live broadcast of the Blizzcon 2013, via the (leveled-up) barcraft held on location.
Leisure Days strives to bring together, at the same event, enthusiasts of different facets of gaming, whether be it competitive or casual, board game or computer based, it gives access to the (gaming) community that is still in its infancy here in Romania.
The festival comes as a natural evolution of events that we at 'E -Sports Cluj' have held since we have assembled, back in February of 2013. Leisure Days is also a response to the growing demand of gaming-related activities, both board game and computer based.
The festival is made up by a Starcraft II 2v2 tournament, two board games competitions, the Blizzcon live stream and two areas for leisure play. These two areas will hold non competitive board games matches for anyone interested and an 'arcade' section defined by indie and/or old-school pc games.
The Leisure Days schedule (GMT+2):
Start time: Friday 18:00
End time: Sunday 19:00
Stay tuned for updates!
Board game competitions of Settlers of Catan and King of Tokyo will be held during the course of Leisure Days resulting in prizes offered by Lex Games and Ideal Board Games. The competitions are open to any person present on festival grounds, prior knowledge of game rules is not necessary and the competitions themselves are not mutually exclusive. Everyone will have ample time to test the board games before the start of the competition and prizes will be awarded for the best players in each competition.
