WHAT ARE LAN PARTIES?
A LAN Party is a gathering of a group of friends, for fun or competition. The gathering involves connecting computers or consoles on a network in order to play video games as a group. Playing multiplayer games is much more fun when your opponents are in the general vicinity, and when your network performance is not tied to your ISP’s performance (read lack of performance).
LAN Parties usually go on all night due to extensive junk food consumption and caffeine, resulting in prolonged sleep the night after the LAN Party.
