What to bring to NETWAR 37.0 and FAQs
NETWAR 37.0 is less than a week away! Tickets are selling fast and we are expecting to sell out. Woot woot! Over the years we have compiled a list of commonly forgot items and things to bring. Check the list and then double-check, and then read the FAQs and event details to make your time at NETWAR a success.
Here are some highlights:
- Bring all the cables you will need (monitor, ethernet, power cord, etc – it’s not always easy to find a dual-link DVI cable at 8 pm on a Friday in Omaha).
- Outside food is allowed! Just no booze and keep your area clean. Keep coolers out of the way or in your car. We must keep the aisles clear.
- Sleeping is allowed on the second level concourse. Do not sleep in the aisles as they need to remain clear.
- Read the event rules. Be nice, have fun, and make friends!
- The food at Baxter is pretty great! We have special pricing and a curated menu. And they will be selling BAWLS!!! ($2/can)
Did you know you can support NETWAR with Amazon Smile? A small portion of your purchase is donated to NETWAR with no extra cost to you! Here are a couple of LAN party essentials that we recommend from Amazon:
- A long Cat 5e/6 network cable. This should be 25 feet or longer. We do not have WiFi at the event so be sure to pick one up.
- The classic NETWAR LAN Wagon! The easiest way to get your gear in and out the event is this awesome folding wagon. Why carry your tower when you can roll in style?!?! They are a popular choice for gear transport at NETWAR.
- A multi-bit screwdriver is an essential LAN party item. This one from Klein Tools will last a lifetime. You never know when you might need to open up your case. If you win an awesome prize in our raffle from one of our sponsors you may have to do an onsite upgrade!
- A wrist pad for your mouse and keyboard is a great way to keep you comfortable and gaming through the event. And don’t forget your mouse pad!
Before the event, review the WHAT TO BRING section of event details. It will cover the big things and the small things that are often forgot.
