A poker tourney with a dozen or so people is going to take longer than a couple of hours, and a hell of a lot longer if you add in a rebuy and an add-in. That much money will cut down on the people that can play as well. Also, you're begging for someone to start bullying with that setup, in my opinion.

For poker i am thinking the following... keep in mind people are comming halfway accross the country to this lan. Gotta make it somewhat affordable.

$10 buck buy in

max 3 buy ins.

Low enough, to allow everyone to play. Some buy-ins to boost the winners pot

poker is going to get out of hand with that many people. the game will never end, and how many tables are we operating?

I generally don't have the patience to just sit there and play cards for that long ...

With a tourney you can set it up so it last however long you want. I have played many that had 15-30 people starting and you can either adjust the blinds or the amount everyone starts with to get the thing over in less than 4 hours. I still don't like the rebuy idea.

20 dollar buy in, and only one 10 dollar rebuy. Thats not a lot to ask of 12 people. One Add-in which will be double the rebuy chips, half way through, with blinds going up every 20 minutes. We played a 25 man tourney with this setup and it lasted 3 hours. Thats plenty of time, and rather cheap. Its by far the best setup I have played in. By limiting it to only one Rebuy, and only one add in for those who are left in the tourney, its not too bad.

Some spades would be fun, also like I suggested before, I think some type of console fighting game would be good times, I like the thought of a racing game too. I myself would like something directed away from the videogames and do some spades or some euchre....oh wait, most southerners dont know what euchre is, sorry. :?

I have Burnout 3 for the PS2 and Sould Caliber 2 for the GC. Also have Smash Brothers Melee, Gozilla: Destroy All Monsters, Monkey Ball 2, and Muppet Party Game for the GC. Let me know if I need to show up and bring some games. Assuming they have all three consoles there.

10 dollar buy in, no re-buy's. Blinds go up every 15 min. (if it takes longer, then add anties) Tournament. 7 Players at a table. Perfect.


I got dibs on b0ba and Mav lasting..

As a matter of fact, IM me for some Pokerroom or something. I miss playing online with you guys.

im not going but...

sX - i like that setup, thats what me and my friends always play when we do, we start with 1000 in chips and blinds start at 5-10 and go up every 15 minutes.. it gets done at good timing...been playing that setup for like almost 4 years now...

sero - i play a lil smash bros melee, just kinda got into it like a month ago, not that good... who are you usually? just curious...

talking about card games besides poker... nothing beats Pitch.... pitch 4 point, 5 point, and 10 point... its the best... who knows what i am talking about?

Pitch is a lot of fun, but Trumps is by far the best card game ever.

Widow, I'd take that bet. Im an aggie too you know. I spent 4 nights a week at the chicken playing 42.

What good is 10 dollar buy in with 20 peeps (if you can get that many), with no re-buys, and no add ins,,,then you have a 200 dollar total pot. Not much incentive to get 20 people to play. Thats fine for a small friends weekly game and such, but this is the fucking ONE TIME A YEAR LAN PARTY. Bring fucking 30-50 bucks to play poker and have a fucking good time.

How bout we start a poll. :)

Hey, dumb ass.

Are you forgeting people are coming from all over the states? They're investing money iinto this LAN as far as gas, food, hotel, LAN fee, bawls.

They came here to game, basically, not gamble. This is a LAN party, not WSoP or WPT. Poker and bullshitting sounds great to me. I don't care if I lose my measly 10 dollars. I just wanna play poke her.


Ease it down a notch there buddy. If yall guys wanna play it my way, fine. I'm gravy for it. I just think funds are an issue for a lot of people here.

See yall at the tables.

i disagree. my buddy got it and we played it...and the controls sucked. he traded it in about a week later. i picked it up for the PS2 because that is what we played it on when we got a demo of it...and love it. I think all driving games should allow me to use the right stick for gase and brake.

i disagree, cause the controls on the xbox are just fine in my mind. It is mostly dependant on which consoles controller you like more, and i prefer xbox. Not to mention 4player is so much cooler =D. makes the crash games that much better. and btw i will take anyone on neon nightmare crash any day of the week. my record is like 7.4 million in damages =D
