Puttything loves cake!


tBG Head Honcho, BOFH and our fearless leader

Name: James Yale

Likes: Cake

James is the founder of this band of merry men and our supreme master and commander!

A penchant for gathering people in a dark room, getting no sleep and staring intently into other worlds for hours at a time guided putty though his early career, however when the playboy-mystic lifestyle didn’t work out putty fell back to the next best thing he knew, running LAN parties. 


Gamesmaster and Event Warlord

Name: James Taylor

Most likely to say: Get in the damn server!

Jynx has been gaming since the early 90's cutting his teeth on such classics as RAC Lombard Rally, Crystal Caves and Championship Manager. Easily the best gamer in his house, and potentially other houses, he is dynamo of raw gaming talent. As well as being better than some people at gaming he also has other unique skills, unfortunately there are too many to list here. He is a keen chicken fancier and some believe that his regular intake of fresh eggs is a key factor in his amazing K/D spreads and vast number of MVP awards.


Marketing & Event Ninja

Name: Graham King

Born at a very young age and introduced to gaming even before that, Blackstar has always nurtured a love for gaming.  From Zool, Twin Worlds & Mad Professor Moriarty on the family Archimedes to Batman Arkham Origins, Halo 4 & GTA 5, via Quake, Counter-Strike, Command & Conquer and many others his journey has been long and varied, but worth every click, every enemy blown away, every virtual battlefield conquered!


tBG Webmonkey and Intranet Orangutan

Name: David Gray

Malevolent dictator of the BIG GAME intranet, Dave’s coding genius is the thing that gets a LAN’s worth of pizzas to the right people in time. Head hunted by Dominos for super sekret project in the early eighties some believe Dave may have been involved in inception of online pizza order systems.


Event Sound and Vision

Name: Adam Cathersides


Graphic Designer, Marketing Executive and Event Photographer

Name: Geoffrey Yale

Most likely to say: "And my axe!"

Geoff designs the lovely BIG GAME tickets (and after 33 events has finally worked out how large to make the barcodes) as well as all the artwork and graphics for the event and website. He's also the one responsible for spamming you every few months reminding you another BIG GAME is close and also for taking photos during the events. His specialisms include survival, endurance and talking to sponsors to organise the prizes on offer at the event. If you want to know what aperture is, how to eviscerate a goat or just need help with your PC - Maveric is up most hours to help. 

We need you!

BIG GAME Crew members are responsible for THE most vital parts of the whole LAN party experience from meeting and welcoming all the gamers to the event, setting up services and servers for the LAN party, infrastructure and event management, generally making sure everything runs smoothly and on time. Each plays as important role as the other in supporting the event and helping hundreds of gamers every year with any queries they might have and ensuring each has an awesome time.
