Take part in an unforgettable EU4 role-playing experience at the magnificent Czocha Castle in November 2023!
Since 2017, EUIV The Grandest Lan Party events have introduced completely new ways of playing the Grand Strategy. Together with your friends and other fans, create the greatest story possible, streamed live to the world.
What can you expect from this event?
3-Day Multiplayer Campaign: From November 17th (Friday) to November 20th (Monday), join a unique multiplayer campaign with custom rules and role-play elements.
Open to All Levels: The event is open to players with different levels of experience, and you can expect to meet people from around the world who share your passion for EU4.

What will happen?
The Czocha Castle will be booked exclusively for the event, and you'll play, socialize, eat and sleep in historical rooms and spaces. We will transform the halls and rooms of the castle into our playground - a real old-school LAN party with kilometers of cables and dozens of computer machines.
96 spots will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Each team will play as one nation, and each team will have three members busy with not only playing the game but also making alliances, gathering intelligence, and exploring the castle. Together with the PDX team and participants, we will all try to create the greatest story possible. This is not a competitive event! There will be no losers or winners. We strive to create an unforgettable event that celebrates EUIV and its community.
To create an amazing story, we will add an additional layer to the regular multiplayer session of EU IV. We will introduce special rules that will apply to everyone and encourage you to do diplomacy in real life - by meeting your opponents in the elegant rooms of Czocha Castle. The great halls of the castle are the perfect place to plot, bribe, scheme, intimidate and make pacts with other nations. We will also introduce a role-playing element to the scenario - by creating a story that you will be the heroes of.
The story will be driven by characters - our actors playing certain roles in the scenario - at the physical location and in the multiplayer session. It will be up to you how much you want to get involved in interacting with them. All information about newly introduced rules, roleplay, gamemasters, and changes to the default setup of the game will be described in the Event Guideline, which will be presented in the upcoming months.

The event will take place in the stunning Czocha Castle. The venue is also a hotel, which means that you will live, eat, sleep and play within this breathtaking location. Explore this XIV century building, discover all its secrets, and feel like a true king and conqueror while doing so.
You will be sleeping in hotel rooms located in the castle. Let us know with whom you would like to share the room, and we will do our best to fulfill your wishes.
We will rent the castle exclusively for this event, so you will have a unique opportunity to play in the stunning interiors - elegant chambers, impressive halls and mysterious cellars are only some of the ravishing rooms that you will have a chance to explore.
Please note that the castle is not accessible to individuals with special needs, such as those requiring wheelchair access.
Buffet meals will be provided by the excellent castle restaurant. We will also make sure to provide you with plenty of drinks and snacks throughout the event.

We can also help you with arranging transport from other places.
The team behind this event will be provided by the Polish brand Turbolarp. The team will take on board people who have previous experience in organizing EU4-themed LAN parties in Polish castles and online.
Paradox Interactive will be our partner and support during the event, and the team of EU IV will join us on site. Even though they are not strictly speaking organizers of the event, nothing of this will be possible without their help and patronage.
