About our LANs

Encouraging participation in games, socialising, and providing the best possible atmosphere for gaming is what we’re all about. Unlike many other LAN parties who set which games are played, we survey every ticket holder in advance asking you for your favourite games. We then timetable the most popular choices, which gets everyone playing together in big games, which is where the real fun begins. Add to this music and lighting to complement what’s going on and you’ve got the perfect social gaming atmosphere.
