Manchester (UK) based casual LAN Party


What is NoxLAN?

NoxLAN is a fun, casual LAN Party gaming event hosted in the North West near Manchester. It was started in 2016 by Matt (Nox) as a one off LAN party, but there was a loud clamour for another, and another, and another… So we keep hosting them!

LAN party?

Basically, people gather their PCs in a room and play multiplayer games. But there’s also a lot more fun to be found apart from staring at screens!

What else happens?

In addition there are competitions, tournaments, a pub quiz, and a chance to try out various VR games! Depending on the weather we can also enjoy the favourite Mancunian pastime of complaining about the rain. Alternatively, we sometimes play a bit of football if it looks suitably dry. There’s also some board games for those who want to take a break from the hard graft of video gaming.

What games are played?

We normally play PC Games which are listed on the event timetable. This is split between tournament / competitive games (e.g. TrackMania Nations), and BIG Games where everyone can join in for multiplayer mayhem (e.g. Renegade X, Counter Strike GO). Other options are couch coop games (e.g. Overcooked, Gangbeasts) where up to four people can play on the same screen. Check the event timetable for more information as well the “What games will be played?” section in the FAQs.
