New Years(ish) LAN 2012!

I know you bums will have other plans on New Years Day, but I'm totally open for Saturday, January 3rd or the 10th, and possibly the 17th.  There will be cake!

What day works out best for you guys?  Which games?  I'm totally down with Dungeon Defenders.

Bob, I think you're looking at a bad calendar.

The Saturdays of January are 7, 14, 21, and 28.  I can do the 7th and following.  I can't do New Years Day though.

Yeah, wow, not sure where those came from.  Okay, either the 14th or the 21st is a no-go for me.  I've got to pull an all-weekend upgrade.  Let me figure that out...

I just put in for the 7th for my work schedule so that shouldn't be a problem.

So...what games do we want to hit up?

Not only am I ready to rock...I am also ready to roll.

Bob, do you need us to bring anything?

Tables, drinks, food, snacks, etc.?

If you've got a table, it would be beneficial.  Otherwise, I think we've got everything covered.  Any drink/snack requests?

Eric and I wrapped up around 6:00am.  We were facing two Easy CPUs that were on the same team.  Eric had a lot of trouble right of the bat, but once we were established it turned into a game of attrition.  We built some large armies (ground troops for Eric, Aries and nuclear bombers for me) and coordinated attacks on one guy, then the other.  As usual, we had to continually sweep over their destroyed bases to keep them from rebuilding.  They must have spawned a few thousand workers each, as they were rebuilding at a ridiculously fast pace.

Here's a screenshot of our final push, with Eric in blue and me in red.



The expansion added quite a bit of content and overhauled the graphics.  The game looks nice and it's fun to have some new units and abilities to play with after all these years.

(...thanks Eric!)
