FNG stands for "Friday Night Gaming" (or "Friday Night Gamers".)
Founded in 1997, FNG was created to provide a community of casual gamers with an open invitation to matchmake for some gaming. The vision behind FNG was to build a network of friends large enough that every week, an individual can show up with a game in mind that he/she would like to play, and be able to find a group of friends (not random strangers on the net) and play together.
FNG has seen over 100 gamers come and go over the years, with as many as 12-14 people showing in a given week.
We officially begin at 11:00pm (Mountain Time) every Friday so we can spend time with our significant others and families; though some of the FNGers are known to appear as early as 9:00pm or 10:00pm. Other nights are hit-and-miss, but you're guaranteed to find some of us on Fridays.
We do voice chat through a private Discord server... which we are happy to invite other gamers to if you agree to keep the language clean while with us (including refraining from vulgar and profane language; including abstaining from referencing Diety.)
If you're in the mood to game with a fun-loving bunch of gamers that enjoy gaming for the sport (especially Racing) and don't whine every time we lose, then please look for us.

I founded FNG in 1997 starting with TetriNET and Warcraft II. We quickly added games like the Motocross Madness series, Starcraft and for a while, any RPG we could get our hands on.
We have done a variety of game genres over the years, including Puzzle Racing, RTS, RPG, Space Sims (like Descent) and Sports (Tony Hawk Pro Skater series).
I have been blessed to take part in some very special projects, including:
Name: Dan Wetzel
Favorite Games: Starcraft: Brood War, Rise of Nations, Trackmania United Forever, Trackmania 2: Canyon, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, Dungeon Defenders, TES:V Skyrim, and Left 4 Dead 2.
I started playing games on an Atari ST & Atari 2600, and would play Civilization at my cousin's house any time I'd visit. I'm primarily a PC gamer, though I do own the consoles, as well.
ThatOneGuy got me started with FNG several years ago after helping me build my very first gaming PC. I don't get to join in FNG as much as I used to, but if I'm not working Friday nights, I'll usually be there.

I started playing games with Zaxxon on the Apple II+. I loved playing the Atari 2600 at my Grandma's house whenever we'd go to visit.
