GeneralQuake Tower Pin

I've got this idea rolling around in my head - building a rig that provides a server and four players for playing quake 1, 2, 3, and 4.

The "box" will contain a raspberry pi 4 (8gb) to serve as a dedicated server that will run all four quake servers, an 8-port gigabit switch, and a surge protector that provides power for up to eight devices.

Additionally, there will be one pi 4 (2gb) for each player, and it will already be connected to the switch and surge protector, and be booting from a USB drive that already contains all of the quake versions on it.

The idea is to set it on a table, and let players connect their own monitor, keyboard, mouse, and headphones. Since all hardware is equal, all players would have the same "experience" and connectivity quality.

The will be an external ethernet port and power outlet that will allow the user to daisy chain additional "tower" units to add players (four at a time, or however many players are supported by the secondary tower).

Just something taking up space in my brain box...
