Packing for LAN

If you are going to spend four days in our LAN, you will need to know what do you need there. Here you can find a list to keep everything in mind. It is easy to forget something at home!

Remember to read the rules for DreamHack Valencia, there you will find useful pieces of advice. Take notes and, please, be very careful with your property once you are in the LAN.

If you are not taking your valuables with you when you are away from your PC, please ask your neighbours to keep an eye on them. Never leave your phone or wallet on your table unattended and secure your PC and screen to the table with cable tie.
