How a Gaming Forum Should Be

At The LANBox we live and breathe games.

Our friendly, Aussie-based community is built around our own world-class social platform. This platform enables you to share our love of gaming, tech and internet culture live on all of your devices. You'll be able to keep up to date on our exclusive content and events as well as community submissions with ease.

Each time someone plays a new game we ensure there's a category ready for you to talk about it. By taking note of what you play and talk about we recommend you the best, most relevant content. No more browsing endless lists of topics to find the gems, just link your account to Steam and get posting.

Be part of the action by joining our ever-growing community.

Our History

The LANBox was founded in 2007 by Grant Colegate for his mates in Adelaide to accompany his newly launched Garry's Mod server. The server quickly grew to be popular around Australia and the forum soon followed.

By 2009, The LANBox had grown to include several Garry's Mod servers, a Counter-Strike: Source server and a highly popular Team Fortress 2 server operated by Anakin. With this success came the expansion of The LANBox website to include news, reviews and tutorials.

In 2011 The LANBox was re-launched with a brand new take on it's role within online gaming by providing a better than ever social experience. Success continued with servers for Garry's Mod, Minecraft and Terraria.

In October 2014 our latest website was launched and with it came a far greater focus on the social and community aspects of what we do. What was once a social page hidden behind a blog is now a world-class community platform with members the world over.

With 2017 ahead of us we've returned to our roots by offering one of the best Garry's Mod build servers around as well as focusing on a set of core games we all enjoy.
