Our first major event was a 4-hour LAN party for our daughter’s 13th birthday in March of 2016.
My daughter asked for an Artemis LAN party for her 13th birthday! Needless to say, I was fully on board with the idea. My stagecraft-skilled wife also got into the act. I sent out Artemis-themed invitations, including computer-printed official looking envelopes. (One invitee said he thought he was getting drafted!)
Since most of my daughter’s sci-fi experience has been Star Trek related, we themed the decorations along Trek canon.
After three hours at this party, we had one hour to reset, and hosted a SECOND party for the adults, again with great results!
