The Nexus Gamecraft & Esports Expo happened in FEU-IT Manila last December 01, 2019 is the first campus Expo in the Nexus Campus Expo Series.

The Overcooked! 2 Showmatch
The event followed a different set up for the showmatch and proceeded with only 4 pairs to fight for the 5,000 peso cash prize.
The first set of pairs to fight against each other is Paru and a player from Liyab with their chosen partners in the audience. The fight ended early with Paru and her partner winning against their opponent with a 2:0 score.
The second set of pairs is Gloco duo versus Riku duo which were also paired with someone from the audience. Unlike the first set, the game lasted longer as Gloco duo catch up with Riku duo and eventually wins with a score of 2:1.
For the final round, Paru duo fought against Gloco duo and gave a fun and thrilling fight. Both teams took an effort in maintaining a clean fight until the last round where the two teams started playing dirty by distracting each other during the cook-off. Eventually, Gloco duo fell short on the last round making Paru duo the champion in the event’s Overcooked! 2 Showmatch.
