Northern Virginia Gamers (NOVAG) is one of the Washington D.C. Metropolitan area's oldest and most respected hobby gaming organizations. Started in 1986, we have consistently provided a focal point for gamers in the Capital area for almost three decades. We welcome members from as far away Florida, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. We welcome you to come out and play at one of our many events.
The Northern Virginia Gamers (NOVAG) was formed in 1985 or so by local gamers playing in the back of a now-defunct hobby and wargames shop in Sterling Park, Virginia. Our first conventions were paid for by the pizza fund. We operate as a not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting gamers in the Washington D.C. area. In short, we are a bunch of grown up people that like to play with toys, and have invented a "hobby" to support the notion. We welcome gamers who enjoy historical, science fiction, or fantasy gaming in all forms of table top games: miniatures, board games, role-playing, or card gaming. Throughout the year, NOVAG provides its members with special events, gaming days, and a Newsletter.
NOVAG is organized around the lines of a collective; we elect officers, sure, but we wouldn't dream of snapping our fingers and expecting anyone to jump. A certain level of community spirit is required to make NOVAG happen (or it wouldn't exist in the first place), but we have no real expectations of our members other than to show up and game.
NOVAG is extremely kid-friendly. We STRONGLY encourage you to bring your children or younger siblings to our events. That way we can get them to play our games!
Membership in NOVAG is open to anyone and costs nothing.
There are two methods to joins.
The preferred method is to sign up at NOVAG Yahoo Group. This will put you in the yahoo users group. You will be able to send messages to all the other members of the club.
