Setting up for the ultimate gaming weekend? You'll want to make sure that you have everything you need well ahead of time. To help you out, here are 6 must haves for the ultimate gaming weekend:
Before you can sit for hours during a raid, you have to make sure that you are comfortable. So, our first must have is comfy clothes. Depending on what time of year it is, you will want comfy shorts and a t-shirt or sweats and a comfy t-shirt and jacket (if needed). Even a soft blanket is a great thing to have if you plan to be up late to keep you comfortable.
The next item on our list is drinks and you'll notice that we put "quick drinks". Well, there's a reason for that: you need drinks that you can get quickly without taking too much time for refills and to snag a drink when you need one. We recommend bottled water, juice, or soda that can be re-closed. This can save you from unwanted spills at the wrong time. If you don't prefer drinks with caps, a tumbler with a straw and lid can help keep your hydrated quickly and prevent spills.
Tons of Snacks
A few different snacks at your disposal is also key to making sure that your ultimate gaming weekend is a success. Snacks should be easy to open, not all of one type (such as sugary or salty), and filling. Of course, our Chick N' Skins are the perfect gamer snack and easy to enjoy. You will find all of our flavors are perfect for any ultimate gaming weekend. If you'd like to know how to build the perfect gamer snack box, check out our article here on our site.
Favorite Controller or Mouse
Next is your favorite controller or gaming mouse to ensure that you have the best equipment for the game you're about to binge. For those that are playing on consoles, make sure that your controller has been cleaned around the buttons, toggles, and paddles of grime and junk to keep them from functioning properly. For those that are playing on PC or mac, you also want to make sure that you take the time to clear your favorite gaming mouse of any gunk around the buttons to make sure that your clicks are all registered when you make them.
Extra Batteries for Consoles
While this item on the list might only be for Xbox players, it is still one that can totally ruin a solid gaming weekend. Dead batteries have foiled many a gamer's plans for ultimate raiding. Keep a supply of batteries by your console so you don't have to go searching for them when you need them most.
Perfectly Working Headset
Now that we have the other bases covered, it's time to check out your headset. Make sure that everything is cleaned and working properly. Run tests to ensure that your mic and ear pieces are working as well. Then make sure that all connections to your console or computer are cleared of junk and good to go.
