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.
According to Jonathan Coulton, the month of May brings interesting outdoor recreational activities. In the same spirit of the month, Dtoid Regional Groups from all over the world are making plans to meetup at various events for gaming, movies, and all around great times. As a community, Dtoid just keeps growing, as the community is hoping to reintroduce two new groups, Dtoid Southeast and Dtoid Toronto.
Read on below to see what NARPs are happening in the Midwest, New York, Australia and elsewhere!
This month, members of Dtoid Australia will be going to the usual Mana Bar trivia nights, as well as having a movie night at the house of BLiz in honor of Zombie Awareness month. However, they will also be attending a Miss Burlesque show which seems awesome!
Be sure to follow Dtoid Australia on Twitter and Facebook as well as check out the Google group for details of these events and much more!
Dtoid New York is headed to Blipfest 2011! The guys in DtoidNY call Blipfest one of the largest gatherings of the year, and this year is extra special. For the first time, Dtoider Zen Albatross will be performing during the festival, so you should totally go out and support him!
More information can be found in the emailer, so check it out!
It may not technically be in May, but this is one epic NARP and one that needs planning. In June, Jon Bloodspray will be hosting the Midwest NARP 2011. Word on the blog-o-sphere is that the NARP last year was too epic for words. So if you live in the area, or even just want to fly out to visit, let them know!
The month of May brings the semi-annual BaltiNARP at Procyon's house. This gathering will boast at least 7 TV's and monitors with lost of classic games. Changston might even be on hand with some of his amazing cooking!
That's all for this month! Make sure to check our our city group post from earlier this month for a list of a couple established community groups. More and more keep springing up, so if your area isn't represented, and you'd be interested in heading a group, email me at [email protected]
