Type of event
Community/Charity (fundraiser, local parade)

Event Name
NOVA Open

Event Description
The NOVA Open is a Washington, DC area tabletop wargaming convention with a strong focus on organized play, charity, hobby seminars, and social connection. Over 1,300 gamers attended in 2016.

2017 will be the 8th year of the NOVA Open, whose origins lie in a 32-person outdoor charity BBQ tournament held in 2009 in Springfield, VA.

The NOVA Open's events include 5 different US National Championship Tournaments for Star Wars games by Fantasy Flight Games consisting of X-Wing Miniatures (256 players), Star Wars: Destiny (164 players), Star Wars: Armada (96 players), Star Wars: Imperial Assault (96 players), Star Wars: The Card Game (64 players), and large organized play tracks in numerous other game systems.

The NOVA Open partners with a sister organization, a formal 501(c)(3) charity known as the NOVA Open Charitable Foundation (NOCF) to raise funds and awareness in fighting critical causes around the world. We especially focus on leveraging the compassion of fellow wargamers and hobbyists to raise funds for Doctors Without Borders, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and the Fisher House Foundation. We primarily achieve this through an international consortium of brilliant miniature figure artists who collaborate to create world-class pieces of miniature art, including full armies, display boards, and individual show pieces. These are raffled and auctioned off through a combination of world-wide online raffles and at-NOVA raffles and silent auctions. Entering its 5th year, the NOCF raised over $100,000 for charity to date.

Event Address
2799 Jefferson Davis Highway

Event Date
8/31/2017 - 9/3/2017

Arrival time
The first events usually start each day around 8am and can run until late in the evening on Thurs, Fri, and Sat. Sunday, ends around. We are pretty flexible with times and don't “need” someone in attendance during the entire convention. But a few appearances each day would be great. We have 2 panels scheduled for that Fri and Sat nights for X-wing and Destiny where we would love to have the Rebel Legion in attendance. We can provide a place for you to change into and out of costume, and will have someone available to lead you to that area as soon as you arrive at the hotel.
