“What the hell is a LAN part?” you might ask. To the average person, a LAN party is an event that will not even occur once in their lifetime. But to a geek, a LAN party is considered a way to interact and socialize with anyone, anywhere, at any given time. A LAN party is simply a bunch of gaming enthusiasts in one room facing off or working together to see who has the most gaming experience in the most fun way imaginable. As the title of this article states, if you are new to the whole LAN party genre, this small article should help you get up and running.
Before The Planning
Now before you get all excited about hosting a LAN party, there are a couple of things you must take note of. In order to have a party of any sort, you must have a good amount of people who are committed to show up. Sitting in a room by yourself is not considered a party, so rip out your notepad and begin writing your guest list. After your guest list is complete, (a minimum of three people is needed for a LAN party) you must go ahead and notify your guests about this spectacular party you are having that is definitely not going to fail. The easiest way to send out invites is through a Facebook event, so go ahead and get this event cracking. In the event description make sure to have a list of games that each guest needs to have in order to partake in your event, three games should be enough, and the address where the event is happening. Discuss with your guests about the length of the party that is able to suit all their needs and enter the beginning and final times associated with the party into the event description as well.
Before you get started with the setup of your event, make sure the area is clean and free of contaminants; the last thing you want is three of your friends starting the zombie apocalypse. In all seriousness, a clean environment is a happy environment. Set up your chairs and tables that will comfort your guests, make sure the tables can support their systems weight (you don’t want a broken build.) Be sure to have all of the power and internet requirements their systems need. Without the juice, no one will be happy. Have A LOT of food as people tend to eat when their nervous. Drinks are next on the menu. Have a cooler at hand so that no drinks get hot because no one likes a hot can of soda. Make sure you have enough drinks to keep all of your guests energized as gaming is hard work! No alcoholic drinks are acceptable for one reason; gaming while drinking can make you lose your edge and maybe even your friends. That’s about it for setting up! If you feel there’s more you can do to make the party more enjoyable, go ahead and put your spin on things (this is just a guide with basic guidelines.)
When your guests arrive, seat them in their positions and help them get their systems up and online. Make sure they are comfortable so that they stay and don’t forget that they can leave so keep them interested. During the course of the party, be sure to split your games up evenly so that no one is playing a game they don’t want to for too long. Things can tend to be unfair if everything is not even and it might lead to some heartbreaks. Just remember that if you keep the food and drinks coming, your guest will surely have no reason to feel unfascinated.
The Final Step
This might sound a bit obvious, but it’s your party too, so don’t forget to go ahead and have FUN!!!!!
