Lucas Arts Themed PC Gaming Party

When I host parties, they usually don’t occur without some geeky theme. My dad and sisters were all over this one. Day of the Tentacle, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, The Dig, Curse of Monkey Island… Having grown up on 1990’s Lucas Arts PC games and practically incorporating dialogue and hand made props into our daily childhood, the mood at this random party was energized! All who came in costume thoroughly played out their characters, and watching game play on YouTube was a hit!
