Constantine Mavromichalis is the organizer for the Kount LAN party and also runs BoiseLAN. Mavromichalis said the choice to partner with Boise State for the event was obvious.

“Having worked multiple times with Boise State‚Äôs esport program already it was a no brainer,” said Mavromichalis. “Their professionalism and organization is what drew me to partner with them to host a private event.”

Attendees participated in a wide variety of games held all around the arena. Some piled into the battleground to play competitive shooters such as Overwatch or Valorant. Others crowded together on the couches in the arena to play local multiplayer games such as Smash and Mario Kart. Even some Boise State casters such as Jarid Castiglione joined in for some impromptu casting of the local games being played.

The Kount LAN event was the result of over a month of planning from Mavromichalis. Altogether, the event was a huge success for Mavromichalis and he plans to host more events like it in the future.

“I run BoiseLAN, which is a bring your own computer LAN party in Boise,” said Mavromichalis. “I am planning to partner with Boise State for future large LAN parties and private events as well.”
