I’m hosting a LAN party about 2 or 3 times a year and decided I should include some Garry’s Mod activity this time.
I already planned a contest for building your own car in 15 minutes, within certain restrictions (size, banned tools, torgue/thruster power etc.) and racing against others with it on a pre-built track. I already shared the details for the rules, so players can plan their cars before the party, but must manage to build them in 15 minutes without any mods in the actual party.
Another fun thing I’ve played before is spawning the default HL2 car for everyone and welding an explosive barrel behind each car. Then all players customize their car and create weapons for destroying barrels of other cars, the main restriction being that you can’t build protection for your barrel. It’s obviously a destruction derby where you lose once your barrel has exploded. The problem is that collision physics are pretty unpredictable and sometimes hitting the barrel hard with a huge hammer just doesn’t make it explode.
So, what kind of minigames you guys play or would want to play? I’m mostly looking for minigames that don’t require any mods and don’t take hours to play, but feel free to suggest anything.
