I get together with a few friends every couple of weeks for a LAN party. Obviously the games we play are limited to those that we own and that will run without the CD (or are cracked). Typically we will play a strategy/empire building game as these lend themselves best to relaxed LAN gaming. We play AOKConquerors, SettlersIV and Stronghold regularly and occasionally go head-to-head with AliensVsPredator or SFCIIEmpiresatWar. Any suggestions for other games to check out would be gratefully considered. As a footnote, I own both Silent HunterII and Destroyer Command, which are supposed to link as a multiplayer extravaganza. However, we have tried multiplayer on SHII before, and the time compression facility would not function, which meant that one game (as 4 U-boats) lasted 9 hours, with the majority of the time spent sailing in formation looking for the bad (good?) guys whilst we drank endless coffees and smoked endless cigarettes. Suggestions??????
