I'll keep it short. Korny has all the pics so I'm certain his will be waaay better than mine.

So in short, it was a blast. This was the first LAN party I'd ever held for HBOers so it was an odd experience convincing my dad that we weren't inviting a bunch of internet creeps to the house. The term "Internet rapists" was used. He took some convincing (He is old). Despite a few annoying technical issues (later resolved), everything went great! Nobody died, so that's a plus.

In attendance:

The fearless, god like 6'5", and strikingly "Sterling Archer-esque" (as reported by his peers) Bryan Newman...
and some other people.

people like:
KornyMunkey (And his GF)
Padraig (The almighty)
Revenant (And his GF)
Lost Spartan

It started on Saturday. We mainly sort of just hung out that day. Kentucky Fried LAN 2.0 will have to have the subtitle LAN/Bro-out. We got the ATV's running and I think those went over really well, and unlike snowmobiles they are not as easily stuck for hours (HBOMBers know). We grilled hamburgers and hotdogs. Later that night we made the trip up to Newport Ky, to see Star Trek in 3D IMAX. That was awesome. Paddy, Munky and I watched a few episodes of Arrested Development S:4. So happy that the Bluths are back.

Sunday was when the real "LAN" portion started. That was when the most Halo was played. That was a whole lot of fun as expected but the real gem that day was my little sister. Bear in mind she has never played a game of Halo multiplayer before (She's not a gamer.) I convinced her to pick up a controller and start playing with us. When the trash talk started, it wasn't from me, or Rev, or Paddy...but from little Reagan Newman.

That blew my mind. Any doubt I ever had about her actually being related to me (Do to her dislike of video games) was completely erased when she began calculating her K/D. I was so proud.

We had a big bonfire that night. Munky's girlfriend made maybe the best hamburger I have ever had. She put pineapple on it and damn did that make it shine.

As the evening wore on we decided to do something that will forever go down in the "Shame" section of HBO...We played cards against humanity.

For those not in the know, it is basically grown up version of Apples to Apples.

Friendships were strained, morality questioned, and by the end of the night it was determined the vast majority of us are indeed going to hell. It's that kind of card game.

I can sum up our Cards against humanity experience with two words: Mecha Hitler.

I don't think I have ever laughed so hard in my entire life. Amazing game.

The night ended and with it the LAN party. The Georgia crew departed that night and the Ohio/PA group the next morning. I think everybody had a good time, I was happy to host and am already planning the next one because it was just so much damn fun!
