  • Your computer: Make sure it’s in good working condition and that you have any necessary software or games pre-installed.
  • A monitor: If you’re not playing on a laptop, bring a monitor to connect to your computer.
  • A power strip: To make sure you have enough power outlets for your computer and peripherals.
  • A network cable: To connect your computer to the LAN party’s network.
  • A keyboard and mouse: To control your computer during the LAN party.
  • A headset or speakers: To communicate with other players and hear game audio.
  • Any necessary adapters or peripherals: Including power cables, HDMI cables, and USB adapters.
  • Snacks and drinks: To keep yourself fueled throughout the event.
  • A sense of fun and a good attitude: LAN parties are all about having fun and socializing with other gamers.

It’s also a good idea to:

  • Check the LAN party’s rules and regulations before you go, to make sure you have everything you need and that you’re aware of any restrictions.
  • Bring any additional devices like a laptop or tablet, to use for general internet browsing or streaming.
  • Bring a USB drive with any necessary software or games, in case you need to install them on someone else’s computer or share with the group.
