What we're about
This is a group to organize LAN Parties for people playing Civilization. We mostly play Civ 5, but we're open to other 4X games. We're playing every two-to-three weeks, and we are trying to play a campaign until someone wins. So far we've never made it all the way through, but we're close right now!
The point of the group is part gaming, and part social. We play game, but we also have some beers and eat pizza (or whatever we decide to order that day). That's why I strongly prefer to meet up in person. We can occasionally let someone join online (if we can work out the technical details), but that's not the focus of the group.
The people who come to the meet ups are mostly, but not exclusively, techies of one sort or another, people who write code for a living. We don't discriminate though, and I would actually love to have a slightly more diverse set.
