Warhammer

Enjoyed the new WARHAMMER store @ Centerra in Loveland. Fun time learning the rules and dynamics of the game and cutting, gluing and painting a couple game pieces with my son.

LAN Party?

I have had many questions in regards to “what exactly is a LAN party?”

My definition: A controlled gaming chaos extravaganza where users are in a confined space and linked together without use of the internet.

Wikipedia’s definitions: A LAN party is a gathering of people with computers or compatible game consoles, where a local area network (LAN) connection is established between the devices using a router or switch, primarily for the purpose of playing multiplayer video games together. The size of these networks may vary from as few as two people, to very large gatherings of a hundred or more. Small parties can form spontaneously and take advantage of common household networking equipment, but larger ones typically require more planning, equipment, and preparation.
