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 Mumble server... which we are happy to invite other gamers at times 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 RTS) and don't whine every time we lose, then please look for us.

Name: Jeff Litster
Alias: That One Guy
Favorite Games: Motocross Madness 2 (MCM2), TrackMania, TrackMania 2, ShootMania
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.
Stay tuned... more to come...
