BLACKSBURG, Va (WDBJ7) A group in Blacksburg hosted a weekend-long convention for "all things geeky" as part of NRV-Con at the University Mall.

The event is the brainchild of Virginia Tech's Science Fiction and Fantasy Club.

Those who took part enjoyed comics, cosplay and gaming of course.

Many also competed in tournaments for Magic the Gathering and Warhammer 40K.

Organizers said events like this one have something for everyone to enjoy.

"We hope that they have a real fun time like seeing people in the costumes and get to shop for really cool stuff with all our vendors we've got a lot of very cool, unique items," Michael Mutschler said.
