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.
Have you never been to a NARP? Well now that its the summer you have no excuse! Destructoid community members throw and organize the best events. For example, look at all the fun that Dtoid Midwest had. They even organized a gaming tournament called "Destructathon" which I hope becomes a mainstay in NARP groups around the world.
Anyway, read on below to see what NARPs are happening this month in San Francisco, Phoenix, Europe, and elsewhere!
Dtoid New York is taking a trip to the Dave and Busters at the Palisades Mall. So come out and play some games with your fellow Dtoiders! Also, shuffleboard.
This month, Dtoid Pheonix plans on checking out a one-day tabletop game convention as well as a housewarming party at Darren's place consisting of tons of fun games like Rock Band.
Near Phoenix? Make sure to get involved by checking out their Google Group!
DtoidSF has a lot of events planned, from a karaoke night, to the monthly Super Nerd Night, as well Fanimecon at the end of this month. So much to do, and so little time to do it in!
EuroNARP4 comes up this month! Hopefully all your plans are set, but its never too late to spend a weekend at teh Lair (tm)! Join the guys as they spend a weekend of gaming with other Dtoiders!
