On July 17, was held the first championship of the game “Mafia” in Moldova. One of the tournament’s features was that the game took place according to professional rules.
The first local tournament turned out to be a success, despite of some pitfalls in the form of technical problems with the broadcast of games.

The event was organized at the highest level and also were organized live broadcasts on Play.md
