Hey Destructoid!

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!
