The online event was held in a ternary pattern with three games of various traits. The first game, known as the Hansraj Cricket League was a virtual auction event that tested the business sagacity of its participants. Held over 3 days, the event did not only vouch for enormous participation but also the stem-winding competition which distinguishes it from the rest.
Next in the line is Fateh: The battle of wits. Just as the name suggests it was an intellectual debate event with the best squabbling motions.

Catch the killer: The Track Trail can be credited as the adventure flush of CERBERUS. The exhilarating murder mystery, the astounding levels, the secretive assassin, and the camouflaged treasure made it an arresting task. The dares on the way made sure that the best player wins.
