    doubt there is a dedicated LAN center anywhere, the last few that i know of where in St. Ann and one in mobay (my store), there where a few other small ones where someone basically bring a switch and hook everyone up to there network.

    Basically you would have to state the location and at least provide a switch and cables, they can bring there own PC.

    Yeah basically our Lanning is more internet based now, as everyone is all over the country, so this is the most convenient way to link up and play games.

    Most times a Lan party is being held it's either in Kingston or St. Ann, but one side of the island always get left out, so Lan parties would be better done with an internet connection and software like hamachi for those who can't make it.
