After the 2017 edition in Morocco, Cameroon will again be on the spotlight with 3 representatives at this annual rendez-vous.
Given the excitement generated by Cameroon's performance at the Africa Game Show in Morocco in 2017, it was agreed to extend the competition to gamers from other regions of the country, hence the principle of the caravan deployed in three towns; Yaoundé, Buea and Douala.
The caravan was an opportunity for gamers across the country to express their talents and to stand a chance to win the all-expenses paid trip to Dakar, with the hope of winning the big prize in a competition with other winners from all Orange subsidiaries in Africa and the Middle East.
