TBG is an annual gaming event that takes place three times a year, where we have been the official sponsor for some years now! The event runs over the course of three days from 6pm Friday 1st November until 6pm Sunday 3rd November. Gamers travel from all over the globe to attend this event, the current record for furthest travelled is a gamer from Germany!

As well as spending time gaming in different organised tournaments attendees can also take part in the Big Games famous pub quiz on Saturday evening, where the Domino’s Pizza delivery (also an official sponsor of TBG) sees over 80 pizzas delivered at once to the event.
TBG is a social and friendly LAN party with the emphasis on building a gaming community and bringing people together, whether you are into the latest games of 2019 or are a more classic-gamer TBG has something for everyone. For those of you who aren’t sure what LAN parties are let us explain, LAN parties are events where people bring their computers to a public location and plug into a Local Area Network (LAN). Once connected to the network, you can interact with each other in order to play multiplayer games.
Five members of the staff here at Novatech will be attending TBG in just under two weeks participating in lots of the gaming events and competitions on their own Novatech Gaming PCs . Our staff will also be attending on the setup day to help TBG prepare and set up all of the technical equipment ready for the three-day event.
TBG commented “The BIG GAME’s long association with Novatech has been a fantastic addition to our already successful Hampshire-based LAN party series.Novatech have been the headline sponsor for our last 15 sell-out LAN parties and their assistance in providing the very latest technology for our gaming attendees is not only a win in our event long eSports tournaments, but get hands-on with VR and their Full Motion Simulator has really upped the stakes for our events. The collaboration offers our attendees something else to do and see at the event as well as showcasing Novatech’s growing involvement within the eSports community.Novatech are also a technical partner of the BIG GAME loaning technology including switches and servers to assist with infrastructure needs, and high spec rigs to benefit our live video production.Our next event, TBG51, is imminent starting on the 1st of November and is well on track to be another sell out.”
TBG is a non-profitable organisation and in the past, we have supplied the event with Network Switches and other essential gaming equipment for the event to run smoothly.
This year we have donated prizes for their gaming competitions including items such as headsets, gaming chairs and hardware components.
