Clean Your Rig

When: 2:00p Friday, October 21st
Presenter: Brad (Organic_Churros)

So maybe it’s been awhile…if ever, that you’ve cleaned your gaming rig. No shame. No judgement… but let’s get that thing cleaned up right at the start of our LAN before you put your rig through 24+ hours of intense gaming with others! We’ll provide the tools and the pro tips you need to run a clean and cool LAN!

Intro to Alpha

When: 9:00a Saturday, October 22nd
Presenter: Steve (stevenleevan)

Forge Gaming hosts Alpha, an open and informal conversation about life, spirituality, and the person of Jesus without judgement or pressure. We want to hear your thoughts and questions as we explore these themes together without the pressured atmosphere that usually comes with these conversations.

Home LAN

When: 5:00p Friday, October 21st
Presenter: Joe (JOOOOOOOOOO)

Ever wanted to put on your very own LAN party at home? We’d love to help you get started! We’ll provide you with some wisdom and thoughts on running a small home LAN along with what gear and logistics it takes to pull it off.

D&D Lunch-n-Learn w/ Sellsword

Frequently Asked Questions.

What if I’m under 18?
Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Will there be alternative meal options for dietary restrictions?
We would love to accommodate, please email administration@forgegaming.us or DM an admin on Discord.

What are the sleeping arrangements?
For those that wish to get some sleep like normal humans, we will have dedicated men’s and women’s sleeping areas. This is a basic room with a hard floor, so you may want to bring a cot, mattress, pillows, blanket, sleeping bag or whatever camping style sleep gear you can.

Why am I paying $35 to LAN?
If we could make these free we totally would! However, 100% of our costs go to providing an awesome LAN experience with meals, beverages, snacks, power, internet, a sweet venue, raffle and tournament prizes and anything else we need to LAN.

Wait, is this a Christian LAN party?
Forge Gaming is a nonprofit gaming ministry which means that we think the most awesome and loving thing to do is share the story and message of Jesus to gamers and care for gamers in various ways. Everything at our LAN is optional including ways to learn about Jesus (StoryTime, Workshops, Forge Study). We aren’t just for Christians, and we are honored and respectful to anyone joining our LAN!
