The title pretty much says it - which, in your opinion, is the best strategy game that can be played on LAN?

I enjoyed the Total War games on a LAN. The battles against other real players get very interesting.

World in Conflict
C&C3 Kane's Wrath
Warhammer 40k - Dawn of War Series

By the way, a nice overview of LAN games can be found via http://www.lanbooster.net. There you can use different filters to search a games database and you surely find a suitable LAN game for your next party.

Why haven't anyone mentioned AoE series!? :o

Actually AoE3 + Exp's is a great game or LAN game, but Empire Earths r good too.
I don't seem to remember if AoE2 is LAN supported too? AoE1 isn't :S

The entire "Age of" series supports LAN, including the original Age of Empires and its expansion, Rise of Rome. In fact, even the demos for AoE and RoR support LAN, and still work today.

SupCom games tend to last for ages though, far too long to be good for a regular LAN also not everybody will be able to run it. Starcraft Tiberium Sun World in Conflict (assuming everyone can run it properly) RA2 Generals

Oh Sup Com games do go for quite a while, but at the LANs i have gone to its usually gaming nonstop with plenty of time to kill, so there are epic matches to be had. Otherwise it runs well - as long as its patched, same with Forged Alliance.
