NAVA Gathering, April 30: 25 NAVAs Packed Into One
NAVA = North Atlantic Videogame Aficionados. This is a FREE event bringing gamers together for competition, trading, and chatter.
Previously at NAVA...
- The last NAVA was held in February 2020. It was a different time!
- NAVA has been running in NJ since 1995, originating at a store called "Videogame Connections" in Howell, NJ.
- It briefly morphed into "NJ Classic" when the Howell store closed down and returned in 2006, shortly after Digital Press Videogames opened.
In This Month's NAVA: We missed 25 consecutive NAVA events due to COVID, it finally feels like it's safe enough to gather again. We all have so much to catch up on. Hopefully the silver lining is that everyone got to play a LOT more videogames while isolating, quarantining, locked down, etc. Bring your story with you along with your skills, because we're going to have as many game systems set up as possible to cram those 25 "lost" NAVA's into one mega event!
