It is, basically, a big temporary LAN set up for the purpose of game-playing.

15 or 20 geeks each bring his/her own computer and crossover cable.  The host 
provides a hub/switch and, of course, snax und bier.  Everyone plays networked 
Quake, or whatever the game of choice is.

A chance to kill your friends in a general atmosphere of merriment!
