About Us

Who are we?

Founded in 1998, Plug n’ Play LAN is the longest running Bring Your Own Computer (BYOC) LAN party in the Greater Tampa Bay area! We have evolved through a number of iterations as a LAN party and LAN center, and we’re committed to bringing you the best LAN party the area has to offer!

Where is the LAN located?

We are proudly hosted at The Minnreg Hall, 6340 126th Ave, Largo, FL 33773. Our LAN party has been hosted here for years and it is a facility that has room for our continued growth. This facility accommodates up to 125 gamers, while our soft limit is usually set a bit below that. This gives you plenty of space to stretch out and stay comfortable.

What should I bring?

Plug n’ Play is a BYOC LAN party, which means you’ll need to bring some of your own equipment if you want to game with the rest of us! We provide you a low-latency, professionally managed local area network. We also provide you an internet connection, tables, chairs, and power. You bring your computer, monitor, keyboard, mouse, and any other cables you may need.

As a general checklist, we strongly recommend you bring the following:

  • Computer
  • Monitor
  • Keyboard
  • Mouse
  • Mouse pad
  • Power cables
  • Operating system installation CDs and keys
  • Headphones
  • Optional: Microphone
  • Cat5 LAN cable (straight-through)

What are the rules?

We don’t have a long list of rules, guidelines, and regulations. We strive to provide you with a semi-structured environment to enjoy gaming with your friends. We do have a few simple rules we ask attendees to abide by at all times.

  • No drugs, alcohol, or other controlled substances at the LAN party
  • No open beverages left unattended
  • Respect other players and their belongings
  • No coolers or ice chests

Plug n’ Play reserves the right to deny any player admittance. If you are ejected from the LAN party for violating one of our simple rules, or found to be intentionally causing a large disruption to the general LAN, we reserve the right to deny a refund.

If at any point you have a question about Plug n’ Play, our rules, or other topics, please feel free to contact a member of the staff. Additionally, staff can be found on irc.pnplan.com #pnplan.
