For quick info, directions and a list of some of the games we'll be playing, skip to the bottom of this post.
We (Wired Gaming... we don't have a gaming centre any more but we're still about ) are going to be running regular LANs in 091Labs, the Galway hackerspace. How regular depends on demand.
The first is coming up on the 11th of February, starting at 17:00 and ending sometime Saturday (whenever most people have left). There are, at time of writing, 10 people booked with a maximum of around 20... but we can probably squeeze more in.
We're putting all of the infrastructure in place (power sockets, 48 port switch etc.) so that set up will be as quick and painless as possible. We'll also have people on hand to help get you up and going (including installing/patching games) if you need it.
This is a social event as well as a gaming one, and we welcome anyone who wants to come down and join in. It's going to be a lot of fun. Even if you don't want to join in the LAN, you're welcome to call in and say hello. You might even get a game or two (we're setting up two hotseats for people to just jump in and play).
Entry is €15 for this first event (all money goes to 091Labs and I'd like to use this first event to do some fundraising for them) but future events will be cheaper. Members of 091Labs go free.
091Labs is a run on a voluntary not-for-profit basis by it's members, for more information on 091Labs and what it is, go here.

Funny story actually. I thought everyone would feck off after Wired closed, but the feckers kept posting on the website.
