DadLAN October 2023

We hosted our first DadLAN ( event on Sunday – a social men’s mental health initiative to bring together Dads in-person and play old school games in a LAN. Kind of like a Men’s Shed for nerds.


  • There were 9 of us, a great turnout for a first time event
  • There is always one person who is great at all games (not me), and now we know who to target next time
  • There was some some light Dad chat, and more on the Discord
  • We did some troubleshooting, including upgrading the LAN connection with a spare router Toby Vervaart brought in a suitcase full of random equipment
  • It was a great, easy-going and fun atmosphere

We’re planning on making this a monthly event, so stay tuned for November’s date by joining the Discord server and if you’d like to run your own local one, we can help set that up with you.
