The Mind Sports Festival Returns To Prague For A Second Year Running

Prague, Czech Republic (24 October, 2013)- Mind Sports (International), part of the Living it Loving it Ltd. group of companies, is delighted to announce that it is returning to Prague for the second year running as part of its Mind Sports Festival season.  Sponsored by 888poker and taking place from December 2-8, 2013, the final mind sports festival of the year brings an extra shine to the stunning Czech capital.

With a full week of intellectual games waiting for Mind Sports enthusiasts and competitors; gamers can try their hand at Chess, Scrabble, Magic: The Gathering and eSports in events spread across the week, with hundreds of players already registered to take part.

In addition to the fantastic choice of games associated with Mind Sports (International)'s festivals, this year's event will also host the prestigious Scrabble™ Champions Tournament.  The World's best players have spent the past two years competing and improving their rank in order to qualify for this iconic event, with the eventual champion set to take home the 'lion's share' of the $25,000 tournament prize pool.

eSports is also back, and this year the festival is incorporating the highly popular Dota 2 (Defense of the Ancients) multiplayer
online battle arena video game. Running on both Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th December, approximately 60 players will battle it out in teams of five until a winner is crowned. This years' event will be managed by well-respected local eSports gurus District Prague, with other side events involving CS:GO and Call of Duty 4 to be confirmed closer to the event.

Hosted in the modern Andel's hotel and conference space, Mind Sports (International) has also teamed up with this stunning 4-star hotel to offer a great accommodation package, at just €95 per night for a single room, or €99 per night for double occupancy, giving players a great opportunity to stay-and-play under one roof.  Located in the City centre and part of the bustling District 5, the Andel's hotel is close to the City's largest shopping mall which houses over 130 exclusive shops and restaurants.

Dave Brannan, CEO of Mind Sports (International) feels it was the natural choice of venue to host what has quickly become the mind sports event of the year, "Prague 2013 is coming to a fresh location and is poised to be bigger and better than before.  Expect more people, more tournaments and even more prize money."

Brannan continues, "It is always incredibly important for us to choose a location that can offer so much more outside of the gaming arena, and Prague in December is a fantastic example of this.  The Andel's hotel is in such a central location it is easy to take in the city's fantastic atmosphere and architecture."

The Prague Mind Sports Festival completes what has been a fantastic year for Mind Sports (International).  Following the first Prague festival in December last year, the company have since completed successful festivals in Vienna, Marbella, Las Vegas and Cardiff.
