Alright, I want to host a LAN party, I have never hosted one before but I have areound 7-8 friends from school that would be interested. I want to start planning it now because come december vacation I won't be able to. So, It will be sometime during Christmas vacation. What are some things I will need? Where to begin. Thanks.<br />

Errr....why are you going to have t-shirts made? You plan to have everyone show up and put on the same tshirt? Why stop there? Get pants and undies made as well...<br />
<br />
<br />
Btw, if you have any extras I would love a Benfest Tshirt lol....<br />

Anyways, if you are going to have a lanparty do it right, at least try and get 90% if not all of the things in this picture to your lanparty. I do not have the guy's name on hand, but if you want, I can get it. I think he costs something like $2k a night, and he partys for you..hard... Anyways, if you cant afford that, just get someone else to fill his role. Picture below:<br />
