No Apparent Reason Parties, NARPs for short, are a long standing tradition here at Destructoid. NARPs are parties hosted by Dtoiders for Dtoiders and everyone is welcome to attend a party. It's about playing games and interacting with other people all in the name of having a good time.
Are you guys missing each other? As you all know, September was PAX and if you are anything like me, you are already itching to hang out with your fellow Dtoid community members again! Well, as luck would have it, the Destructoid city group leaders from around the world have been planning events for the month of October to satiate our party needs!
