About LAN Party EH

What is a LAN Party?

A LAN Party is a local gathering of gamers for the purpose of enjoying multiplayer gaming to it's fullest. The acronym "LAN" is a computer term that stands for Local Area Network; a LAN Party is literally defined as a party of gamers with a local computer network. It's a great opportunity to satisfy your thirst for intense team-based gaming, to trade files at great speed, and to socialize with other gamers.

These events draw hordes of enthusiasts who love to talk about and play computer games, rant about computer hardware, show off fancy computer modifications, and more. If you are a newcomer, do not be discouraged, newbies are generally very welcome at these events! ... and besides, you'll be one of us soon enough anyway!

A history of LAN Party EH

LAN Party EH was first conceived by Howard Ha as a LAN party listing website in late 2004. As the site grew, Howard did not have the time to keep up with the work, and the website was put on permanent hiatus in the summer of 2007.

Jumping forward to early 2008, a lanner and software developer known as Nathaniel Sabanski began development of a modern LAN party community website; this website matured into what LAN Party EH is today.

While the website was under development, and the search for a domain name came about, James Charlton inquired to Howard about supplying LANPartyEh.com for the project. He agreed. Howard is no longer involved with the LAN Party EH website itself, but is heavily involved in the local gaming community and runs the popular gaming website Neoseeker.

Nathaniel completely re-created LAN Party EH in the summer of 2008 with a new design and new modern architecture. He continues to develop and maintain the website to this day, and is supported by a small group of volunteer staff.
