The Event

GAMEGUNE


Gamegune is a European eSports competition. It has become a stalwart of Euskal Encounter over previous years and Counter Strike 1.6 is its star game.

It was set up as a Counter-Strike 1.6 competition. The prize was a place for the CPL (Cyberathlete Professional League) and the winner went to Dallas with all expenses paid to compete in the final.

Thirty-two teams of different nationalities, mainly European, but also from South America, North America and different Asian countries, have taken part in each Gamegune.

Gamegune has been held 12 times as part of Euskal Encounters and twice in Mexico as part of Aldea Digital. It took place for the first time as a differentiated event in 2014 at the Euskalduna Conference Centre, in 2015, at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, in 2016, at the Kursaal Congress Centre and Auditorium of Donostia and, in 2017, at the Tabakalera - International Centre for Contemporary Culture of Donostia.

The venue this year will be Europa Congress Palace "María de Maeztu" auditorium (Vitoria-Gasteiz).
