This is a loose association of tabletop gamers, from miniatures to roleplaying. The website functions as an unofficial adjunct to the NOVAG (Northern Virginia Gamers) game club - see It also hosts a number of smaller groups that meet in people's homes, run by various persons. It's meant to be a "Big Tent" approach to tabletop gaming - everyone is welcome under it.

Each of our Assistant or Co-Organizers puts on events on their own schedules.

If you are a GM/DM/ST interested in hosting meetups, please contact me about forming a new session under this group. I am willing to let responsible GMs use it as an organizing tool for free. I am paying the $15 a month, why not get our money's worth! The more events, the better!

If you are interested in playing at a meetup, please look closely at the game description, then RSVP and/or contact the GM or the store it is being held.

If you genuinely believe yourself to be a vampire or some other supernatural critter, and live your life that way, this isn't that Method. It's about games, serious games yes, but it's not real. Really..its just a game.

If you are under the mistaken impression that roleplaying or hobby games (such as Dungeons and Dragons), miniatures or boardgames are evil or demonic, please peruse this link. for some clearheaded explanation of the hobby.  see

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
