Meet Chicago Northwest Announces AdeptiCon 2016 coming to the Schaumburg Convention Center March 31 – April 3, 2016

March 22, 2016 – Coming to Schaumburg, IL once again is AdeptiCon, the world’s premiere miniature wargaming event. Over the past 13 years, AdeptiCon has become an international destination offering some of the largest and most eclectic wargaming tournaments, hobby experiences and board gaming events available for people of all ages. Featured are miniature games from Games Workshop, Privateer Press, CoolMiniOrNot and a host of other companies. For the Star Wars fans out there, Fantasy Flight Games and AdeptiCon have partnered to host the Hoth Open, the first qualifier in the X-Wing Open Series. The winner will receive transportation, tickets, and accommodation to attend the sold-out 2016 Star Wars™ Celebration in London, England, alongside entry to the exclusive, eight-player Coruscant™ Invitational held at Star Wars™ Celebration.

For those who are interested in painting and modeling, AdeptiCon offers a diverse hobby seminar schedule. Artists from around the world provide insight to their techniques and come to compete the Crystal Brush with the overall winner receiving $10,000.

If miniature games and hobby seminars are not enough, our ever expanding board game library allows you to checkout a game to play. You don’t have to buy it to try it, which allows you and your family to find a game you will truly enjoy. Beyond just our events, attendees have access to a whole slate of authors, artists, game designers and industry leaders.

This event is for adults and kids of all ages. So come join the fun and get your game on!
