Friday Night Fights: It's poker time!

Welcome to another BIG night in the realm of FNF!

First up, King Foom will be playing RaiderZ again with the folks from Perfect World, and giving away a ton of PC peripherals in the process! Up for grabs are $400 worth of keyboards, mice, and headsets -- awesome! Be sure to tune into Dtoid.TV at 4 Pacific to check out the stream, and click here to grab a RaiderZ beta code for yourself and join in the fun!

Then at 5 Pacific, Destructoid's own Andrew Benton will be joining me for an Xbox LIVE Community Playdate! We'll be playing Full House Poker alongside other Dtoiders and members of the "Community Collection Crew" while shamelessly shilling our new Avatar gear. Look us up if you want a seat at the table!

And if you're not interested in either of those... well, play something else! Either way, we hope to see you online!

Friday Night Fights

New to FNF? Read this! Each week, a bunch of us Dtoiders get together to play videogames online! It's a 100% community-run event, so feel free to join in or even host something yourself!

The planning for FNF starts in the forums, where community members sign up to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Gamertag, etc.). Then, every Friday, reminder posts go up in the community blogs thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers, and I recap it all here on the front page to give it a bit more exposure.

To join in, simply send a friend request to the match host! If you'd rather host something yourself, sound off in the comments section below!

Still confused? Check out our FNF FAQ! Big thanks to Dtoider ChillyBilly for all these awesome headers!

Watching Free To Play. I kinda want to try DOTA2, though I'll be very bad at it. Its a very good story of pro-gamer culture, so far. Good Stuff.

Just tried to explain the word BEAT to an ESL student. Reference.com has 58 variations of the definition. At the least, they can finally understand that Michael Jackson was not asking people to fight each other.

Are we really calling followers "fappers" on these quick posts? I knew I loved Dtoid.

So I have enough coins to get a new character in Heroes of the Storm. I like big portly characters like the Butcher or Stitches, but I did enjoy my free week of Tychus. Crowd thoughts?

The temp agency that employs me had me work as a sign spinner today. As in, I held a six foot cardboard arrow-shaped sign and spun it and danced for six hours. It got interesting when a homeless couple confronted me about hogging their spot.
