Named for the Northern Virginia area where it is hosted, the NOVA Open is the largest war gaming convention in the Washington, DC Metropolitan region.
The inaugural NOVA Open occurred in August, 2009. The experience was tailored to the needs of the global gaming community based on their feedback. We believe all manner and style of hobbyist can be accommodated and entertained within the same venue and the same events. Whether a hardcore competitive gamer, or a casual hobbyist simply looking for a few good games, the NOVA Open is designed for you.
Numerous Warhammer 40,000, Warhammer Fantasy, Warmachine/Hordes, Flames of War and other wargaming events fill the weekend, along with casual gaming, painting competitions, and a host of evening events ranging from socials to hardcore wargaming!
Information on the NOVA event, tournament rules and the Washington D.C. area can be found throughout this website and on the convention’s development blog at Whisky & 40K. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
