Meetup Inventory

This week I chartered three new meetup groups, bringing my total to six. Here is the list. Pass the info onto anyone who may be interested:

Northern VA Walking Meetup:

Our scheduled walks and hikes are of the easy to moderate variety and most are also dog and kid friendly. Plan on leisurely adventures with plenty of time to stop and smell the wildflowers or look at the city landmarks. You are encouraged to bring snacks, a journal, a camera, whatever you'd like to carry to make the experience more enjoyable.

About every month or so we hold a Happy Hour for members -if you'd like to join our group but want to get to know a few folks before showing up for a walk we welcome you to join us at next happy hour.


Northern VA Supper Club:

The Northern Virginia Supper Club hosts a member dinner each month. One of our members hosts the dinner and prepares the main entree. The rest of the members bring a side to share. Come and share your love for all things culinary and build new friendships with other 20s and 30s and 40s women, men and couples in the NoVA/DC metro area.


Northern VA Women in Fellowship:

The NoVA Christian Women in Fellowship provides the opportunity to meet and fellowship with other Christian women in their 20s and 30s and 40s in the Northern Virginia/DC Metro area.


Northern VA Computer Training Meetup:

Our meetup group offers a forum for members to learn new computer skills and we welcome all levels of computer users.

We don't expect you to know everything (or even the first thing) about computers and we won't ever look down our noses at members who are new to the basics. Instead, we offer a supportive group environment for you to learn how to leverage technology to help you accomplish the things that matter to you most.


Manassas Thirtysomethings Meetup:

Here we are, forever out of our 20s. Some of us have children, some of us don't. Some of us are married and homeowners, some of us are single and answer to no one including the mortgage bank.

We are all one generation and we are all living out here in Prince William County or Manassas proper.

Come and socialize with the fellow members! Make new friends and enjoy new experiences.


Manassas Book Group:

Join us for a monthly book discussion evening with refreshments.

The gathering is held at Barnes and Noble in the Westgate Plaza and the meeting date varies.

Each month, one book is chosen by the discussion group members to be read and discussed at the following month's meeting. A group notebook is kept to record books reviewed, discussion details and book recommendations.

Board Game Review: Hues and Cues

Last week we received Hues and Cues from The Op Games. We recently finished playing through Scooby-Doo Escape from the Haunted Mansion (a fantastic game in The Op Games catalogue designed by Jay Cormier, Sen-Foong Lim, and Kami Mandell that you should absolutely pick up to play with your family) and wanted to give another game from the same publisher a go. I picked Hues and Cues because I’ve been pleasantly surprised by other “test whether our minds think the same way” games such as The Mind   and Wavelength. In Hues and Cues , players gather around a large central board comprised of 480 graduating colors of the rainbow surrounded by an x-y axis and scoring table. White and black (which are technically not colors) are conspicuously absent as are shades (mixtures of color + black; e.g., grey) and tints (mixtures of color + white; e.g., cream).  On each player’s turn, they draw a card with four colors and the x-y axis codes of those colors depicted and they select one. They are in the

Board Game Review: Obsessed with Obsession

I'm completely obsessed with Obsession! I received a review copy of the updated second edition along with all the expansions (Wessex, Useful Man, Upstairs Downstairs) and from the moment I took everything out of the boxes, my excitement was over the top. Actually, that's not even the half of it - I remember I was already quite excited before the game even arrived. I'd wanted to get my hands on a copy as soon as I learned there was a game that brought the lifestyle that we all fell in love with watching Downton Abbey to the gaming table. Back in 2021, I was having a great time at the Dice Tower Summer Retreat and a new friend Bonnie sang the praises of Obsession. She had seen me eyeing the box on the shelf and gave me a summary of the game mechanics as she owned the first edition. She explained that the theme is centered on running an estate in Derbyshire and competing against others to have the best home, reputation, gentry guests, etc. Based on her enthusiasm and descripti

Board Game Review: Anno 1800

Whenever Martin Wallace designs a new game, I am all over it. This is because I absolutely love Brass Birmingham (another MW designed game); in fact Brass Birmingham is my #1 board game of all time. Over the years, his other games I've tried have been pretty good, but not necessarily amazing must-buys. Still, I keep trying each new release of his, searching for that next star performer. That's why I'm excited to report that Anno 1800 is, in fact, a star performer, and an amazing must-buy board game. Anno 1800 was adapted by the publisher (Kosmos) from a Ubisoft video game of the same name. In the board game, players take on the role of industrialists, charged with developing their island economies and exploring other islands. Each player begins the game with a personal industry board with trade & exploration ships, a shipyard, and industrial goods tiles printed on the board. A starting collection of workers (wooden cubes) of various types to produce the goods is a
