Ending off 2006 with a bang in Lansing, Michigan was the Masters of the LANiverse LAN party running from December 30 to December 31. Comprising Masters of the LANiverse was The BoxHeads and Waldoman LAN organizations. Both LAN groups have had years of experience with hosting 100+ person events throughout Michigan. In the past we had also provided photographs from The BoxHeads LANs here and here. With only 250 gamers in attendance it was no QuakeCon or Million Man LAN, but it proved to be an interesting and enjoyable time for all. For your viewing pleasure we had taken some photographs from the event as well as sharing our thoughts on this event -- one of the largest in Michigan.

In the past when covering The BoxHeads LAN parties, the venues were in Grand Rapids, Michigan and Plainwell, Michigan. The Masters of the LANiverse event, however, had taken place in Lansing, Michigan. Lansing is the capitol of Michigan and known mostly for its automobile industry in the area as well as being home to Michigan State University. The actual location of the LAN party was Royal Scot Golf and Bowl. On top of four banquet rooms the Royal Scot facility also offers sixty lanes for bowling, a 27 hole golf course, an arcade, and sports lounge. Waldoman LAN had used the same venue last year when co-hosting a 200+ LAN party with another organization. The building itself was very large and proved to offer a great deal of room and options for the attendees.

Among the many sponsors for this event were ATI Technologies / Advanced Micro Devices, Crucial Technology, Cummins Bridgeway, Mushkin, Gigabyte Technology, Alienware, Cooler Master, Imperial Beverage, Kronik, and Tagan. On top of a great deal of prizes, Masters of the LANiverse also featured a Counter-Strike: Source cash tournament.
