SPRINGDALE (KFSM) -- PC gamers in Northwest Arkansas came together in Springdale on Saturday (Nov. 5) to compete against each other in PC tournaments.

Gamers had the option to stay for an entire 24 hours in the Jones Center or drop in and out of the competitions as they pleased.

Gamers of all ages hooked up their PCs and got to work playing different games.

"Well it allows us to connect with each other physically as well as digitally, but also its good for our careers and teaches you valuable computer skills and it's great to mentor the younger gamers," LAN party host Collin Allen said.

This was Allen's thirtieth LAN party in Arkansas. He said he was already planning his next big LAN party.
