First day of the Mojo LAN 09. I’ve been in this Xbox gaming community for some years now. It’s a great bunch of "mature" or older gamers. This is the first time I’ve been to a residential LAN and it’s proving to be a fairly full-on experience.
I know everyone by voice but only about half the people by sight but it’s remarkable how well everyone has been getting on. The level of organisation is also impressive. Everyone has personalised name tags with their online avatars, hats to write names on and, of course, the commemorative t-shirt but we also have a giant box of industrial ear plugs for sleeping through the noise of gaming and snoring.
And we’ve hired a mansion, big enough for 20 people, in the Gold Coast Hinterland. Some people have flown from as far away as Perth but there are still lots of people who couldn’t make it. We’ve probably got about half of our regular members here.
With all the game collections, consoles and AV equipment here I wouldn’t be surprised if we have a few hundred thousand dollars worth of goods under this roof this weekend.
