We are DtoidEurope, a group for all you Europeans amidst this sea of Americans :-) We've got the benefit of free universal healthcare, so we don't have to be as carefull as those American pansies... Therefor each EuroNARP so far has been a race to see who crashes first, the drunk gamer or the overheated consoles?
Since last year we've even taken over the crown of the biggest gaming event with "GamesCom 2009" which officially had more visitors then E3 and Tokyo Game Show, so to celebrate that we'll be having an organised visit over there to represent dtoid!
If you're from Europe, just join this group, even if you're currently not even thinking about joining in in any events, you never know if one will tickle your fancy and make you change your mind :-) You'd be mad not to join in in our events, you can see what we've done before in the links provided :-)
A way to connect all europeans and organise meetups, narps and the rest a whole lot easier :-)
A lot of US-cities have a google-group and blog to easily connect to eachother, now us Eurofags have our own group and blog ( banner should be redesigned asap as it merely shows my first tryout in GIMP, same goes for the avatar but that was second, submit your designs to the googlegroup! ) .
Post anything you're about to do related to gaming to the group and then I'll go through them and post a regular update to the blog so everybody gets notified of it. If anyone wants to join in as an active admin, feel free to notify me :-) ( we'll prolly start a google-calendar as well, we get a nice overview of all the events going on )
The first 2 events that'll happen ( and that I'm aware of at the moment ) are the miniEuroNARP and the EURONARP2 ( both hosted by me (mistic)).
the first EURONARP was absolutely EPIC, if in doubt, read the recap: here
here's a pic of the "survivors" of the 1st EURONARP:
So as for the events that are coming, as you'll see on the googlegroup, 2 of them have been added already.

september 2009 1. EURONARP2

So if you have any more events coming up, or are planning to organise a few, simply join the group and start contributing!
I sadly can't access gmail from work, so I will only be able to 'allow' new members into the group in the evening for the next few days ;-)
With this, I say good evening to you all, and now I'll go outside to smoke a bit :-)
