A large-scale video gaming LAN party organized and hosted by NETWAR will be a part of the Mid-America Gamers Expo (MAGE).  As an attendee you’ll bring your computer or gaming console and have a dedicated space to play video games with hundreds of fellow gamers in a 26-hour-long, non-stop LAN party!

Your LAN party ticket also grants you entry into the entire MAGE event.  You can explore the Expo and be a spectator of collegiate and professional eSports tournaments being played in the arena.

You can join the action as part of ‘for fun’ tournaments organized within the LAN party. We’ll be supporting a variety of casual game servers for leisure-play.

Attend, watch and play video games all weekend, have a blast and win awesome prizes in our massive prize raffles exclusively for LAN party attendees!


The MAGE Gamers Expo will offer a deep dive into the latest in gaming. Featuring a variety of national and local companies, the Gamers Expo will showcase industry exhibits, peripherals, and products for gamers of all ages and expertise. Vendors will provide interactive experiences bringing together developers, creatives and gamers.
