Review: Nova Open 2018 - The event

by Roman aka jar

Good Monday morning jungle,
to find the right words on this event is not easy.
It has been my fourth year now with the NOVA Open family and I am proud to tell that I am a part of it.

The NOVA Open is an amazing tabletop and wargaming convention, happening in Washington D.C, every year in the end of August, early September. The show grows bigger and better every year due the help of many volunteers that organise, setup, organise, plan ahead, work actively at place and give their hearts to our all beloved passion. They work for charity and for the fun of it, even it is hard work during the hot moments. I am really happy to be part of this family.

I will write up different coverages of the NOVA Open 2018 in the next couple of weeks to cover all the many varieties this show offers. Again, I can tell from my perspective it has been an amazing event again.
