What is a LAN party?

LAN party warning!

A LAN party is a temporary, sometimes spontaneous, gathering of people with computers and game consoles, between which they establish a local area network (LAN), primarily for the purpose of playing multiplayer video games. - Wikipedia

In less official language, it's sometimes large group of gamers who bring their computers and consoles to a central location for the purpose of playing video games together. The event often includes tournaments, prizes, and lots of caffiene. Most LAN parties occur during a weekend, but there are some that stretch as long as a full week!
