Another happening at this LAN party was live entertainment while the pizza was being served. A metal band had put on a small show with them specializing in remixing Super Nintendo theme songs from Megaman to Super Mario. There was a $15 USD cover-charge for all attendees, but that had allowed for free pizza and soda. Kronik and Imperial Beverages also sponsored enough energy drinks for all LAN party goers.

The Masters of the LANiverse had lasted until the early hours in the morning with a variety of games being played including but not limited to Counter-Strike Source, Battlefield 2142, Unreal Tournament 2004, Enemy Territory, Quake 3, and Quake 4. The consensus for this event was that it was a huge success and a very memorable time for this pre-New Year LAN party.

Outside of the prizes used for the rock-paper-scissors tournaments and other events, a raffle of everyone present was used to giveaway the remainder of the prizes. These prizes had ranged from Seasonic Doctor Cable kits to Gigabyte AM2 SLI motherboards and Gigabyte video cards. There were also several ATX cases, power supplies, Frisbees, over 60 t-shirts, and many other prizes so most attendees had went home with something.

Overall, the Masters of the LANiverse 2006 was an interesting and successful event for Michigan gamers. After the network and power hiccups were addressed early in the day, the rest of the day was smooth sailing for everyone with enjoyable moments from a SNES metal band at a LAN party to multiple overtimes in the Counter-Strike Source tournament and others boxing on Wii Sports.
