Good news everyone! It appears as though we’re fully booked! All that’s left now is to await our imminent Doom. Ah-yes.
With only one week and an extremely modest amount of days to go until NoxLAN v3.0.0, it’s time to make certain you get everything installed and ready to play! Check the information section on the website, and observe the countdown in all its glory.

Only four spaces remain for NoxLAN v3.0.0, if you haven’t booked yet, get booking! If you’ve not yet paid, get paying! If you’ve not looked at the various information such as checklists, timetable and games, get looking!
A dancing number four to illustrate my post writing creativity.

Just to let you know that the best casual LAN run by Matt (Nox) is just around the corner, so clear your calendars, dust off that Xbox 360 and get your best FPS Doug impression ready, because, as previously mentioned NoxLAN v3.0.0 approaches!

Thanks everyone for a great NoxLAN 2.0, it was great to see you all there! I’m not massively sure what to put in this, so I’ll start from the beginning!
I arrived at the venue at around 14:30, with a Sam in tow, and we got to work sweeping the floors, arranging tables and chairs, and wiring all the power and network cables. Sam did a great job in taping the cables to make sure they weren’t a trip hazard. Woo Sam! Look at this lovely picture, it’s amazing.
We mostly followed the timetabled games, with the glaring omission of OpenTTD. Dom and Tom showed their prowess at being able to point and click in CS Source, Alex destroyed everyone in the TrackMania Nations competition, and Matt was nuked several times by several people (as is unfortunate custom).
The main games we played were Counter-Strike Source, Left 4 Dead 2, TrackMania Nations, OpenRA and Renegade X, with some fun side games such as various flavours of Dawn of War, Zandronum, Age of Empires II HD, C&C Generals Zero Hour and Risk of Rain. Also played were some fun party games like Overcooked, Hidden in Plain sight and the various JackBox games like FibbageXL, Quiplash and Trivia Murder Party.
As mentioned Alex won the TrackMania Nations competition, of which there is a video! Enjoy!
I hope you enjoyed the video full of larks, japes and tomfoolery, but you’re probably here to read all about the winners!

Thanks again to everyone who came and I hope to see you all again next time!
(These are the ones who stayed to help pack away, and got free stuff for their trouble!)
There’s just over a week to go until NoxLAN 2.0 opens its doors! It’s time to…
Make sure that you have the games mentioned on the timetable installed, and any other games on the PC Games list that you want to play. There is also a shared spreadsheet you can update with other games you might wish to play with others, to get them bought/downloaded/installed before the LAN starts.
Although I’ve posted it before here’s the checklist of information to keep in mind.
There are a few promising options for alternative venues for if the Heaton Norris Scout Hut is unavailable. I will post when this is discussed with those who have signed up and I have confirmed with the venue.
I have also had a few prohibitively expensive offers from some other venues, which are juuuust slightly out of the budget range… so unless someone has a spare £1500 burning a hole in their pocket I probably won’t be considering them! Granted, this was for a major hotel conferencing suite with all the modcons.
We also have 3 spaces left out of the initial 20 slots! So get registering your interest if you want to be in with a chance to get into this LAN.
