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.
November is the month to”give thanks,” and what better way than to show how thankful we are for the Dtoid community by partying! Various community groups have a bunch of events planned to bring the troops together all in the name of a good time!
Read on to see what NARPs are happening in Australia, San Francisco, Baltimore/DC, Chicago and Austin!
