    It's that time of year again, where we play the Hidden Source, and players (usually me) scream out loud. And everyone else laughs.

    So spooky games it is for one evening, arrive in fancy dress if you like, assuming your costumes have survived the real night, although no major pressure. We all know Nanaki will probably do something scary enough for all of us put together anyway.

    Event date to follow - apologies for postponing

    Event runs 6pm to 11pm, with arrival for set up and fetching dinner from 5pm. Date is to be confirmed and the LAN is held on the upper floor at Kustom. Entry cost is £3.00.

    The Games Pool is as below, although I've still to give these all a test, so it may just be a few of them depending on what works and also any feedback favouring particular ones

    Slendytubbies - http://zeoworks.webs.com/slendytubbies
    Left4Dead 2
    Counterstrike Source GunGame - Spooky Maps!
    The Hidden Source - Definitely
    Cry of Fear - http://www.cry-of-fear.com/downloads.php
    Survivors Beta - the download link for this appears to be taken down, so it's a very low possibility at the moment.

    Crumbs, I seem to pick the wrong date for you every time? I promise it's not on purpose!

    Might be possible to move to Friday 25th instead if that suited others okay. Actually, would more people prefer to do this *after* Halloween?

    I figured it might be better to have it earlier as it allows a practise run for costumes, but also fits in with the build up. Always think that a theme after an event carries less weight, although of course it doesn't really matter that much.

    Ha, yeh, I've broken into your google calendar just to put the LANs on whenever you're busy.

    Really though, that's the last thing I'd do. You're one of the few I have half a chance of winning against, Dex, so I need you along to keep my scores up :p

    Typically, Fridays are easier for me as I work over the weekends ...

    That said, I'm soooooo close to quitting my job. Because Halloween LAN.

    Maybe if some of the above didn't work. We use it at 'normal' LANs quite often though, so wanted to include a bit of variety, especially as it will be used at the next Christmas LAN as well.

    I've changed it to Friday 1st November instead.

    Admittedly Fridays don't work too well for me these days as I'm on packing duty that day so won't get time to prepare and such, Saturdays tend to allow a bit of time, but I'll just try and sort more the night before instead. I've got a lot to get through at the moment though, so will make it the following Friday instead.

    So hopefully that works a bit better for more of you this time :)

    Wah – don't go changing the date just for one person! Change it if it best suits lots of people but, of course, your availability takes precedence over any of our's, Graeme, so please don't make it a Friday if Fridays aren't good for you. : /

    I've changed it for two people ;)

    The following Friday is going to be okay. It would have been the Friday before that would have been a bit too soon. I'll prepare the servers etc next weekend.

    Oh, they'll be fine. Tell them there's a LAN and they show up.

    None of this 'busy with other things' for them ;)
