Meet Chicago Northwest Announces AdeptiCon 2018 coming to the Schaumburg Convention Center March 22 – March 25, 2018

Schaumburg, IL (March 7, 2018) — Coming to Schaumburg, IL once again is AdeptiCon, the world’s premiere miniature wargaming event. Over the past 15 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 a qualifier in the X-Wing Open Series along with the release of the highly anticipated game Star Wars Legion!

For those 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 our events, attendees have access to a whole slate of authors, artists, game designers and industry leaders.

For the little ones, stop by the Reaper Miniatures Paint & Take. Trade in Magic Cards!! Bring your Magic cards and miniatures to trade in at the Toledo Game Room booth and get cash on the spot. Stop by in the evenings to play team trivia events based on Star Wars, Game of Thrones and Warhammer 40K. This event is for adults and kids of all ages. Come join the fun and get your game on!
