How to Hook up 3 Macs ?
We want to Hook up our 3 macbooks in order to play some games, but we have only 1 single fire wire ports on our computers.
So, my question is, Is it possible to have ethernet and fire wire running between 3 macs in order to make Local area network work, so that we could play games.

You need a simple network switch - they're very inexpensive - plus 3 ethernet cables. Job done.
11" MacBook air 2012 i5 4gb/ 128gb - 17" unibody MBP C2D 2.8Gz / 4gb / 500gb - 20" iMac 2ghz C2D / 4gb/ 2tb - iPad 3 32gb wifi/3G - iPhone 5 16gb

1. You need a router, router has ports for additional wired network.
For example, Airport Express (no additional ports but has other features different than standard routers) or Airport Extreme.
2. You can create a wireless network from on of the Macs.
3. If your router doesn't have a switch, but you would like wired network, then get a switch. For example, $11 after rebate (expires April 30)
I suggest getting airport extreme, as it has wired gigabit network capabilities if you have the right ethernet cables (cat 5e or cat 6)
