Community games, board games, mad antics and more!
We're a group of UK AoE2 players coming together to put on a weekend of AoE2-related fun; we had a ton of fun last year, where we focused more on the esports side - this year, based on all the feedback, we're focusing more on the community aspect. If you want to see some of our pre-planning based on feedback from last year, you can find that here. Alternatively, we did a livestream Q&A when we announced our 2023 return, whose VOD you can find here.
Even if you can't bring your computer, we have spectator tickets available so that you don't have to miss anything. There'll be plenty of board games and a console or two around, so even when we're not doing some organised activity, there'll be things to do regardless.
The core of the event is 4 rows of tables primed with power and networking equipment, awaiting up to 48 attendees to bring their own computers (BYOC).
What LAN Madness provides:
What you should bring:
If you are struggling to put together transport for yourself and your rig, we have put together a mini matchmaking service on our Discord called 'organise-transport'. It's essentially a Google Map where people looking for a lift can put a marker down in their town, and those with spaces they're willing to car share with can advertise the vague route they plan to go. Can then arrange directly through Discord. All the information on how to use this service is in the organise-transport Discord channel.
