About this guide

Welcome to AdeptiCon 2018! We're honored that you've chosen to spend these four action-packed days with us. Sixteen years ago we organized and ran the first AdeptiCon with the clear goal that it would be an event that we ourselves would want to attend. As avid gamers and hobbyists, we saw AdeptiCon as an opportunity to present to our community everything that made us passionate about the hobby. That was our focus then and, a decade and a half later, it remains our focus today.

Over the years, AdeptiCon has undergone a tremendous evolution, from a humble beginning as a local event of less than one hundred gamers to today's convention which draws over 3,600 attendees. During AdeptiCon's sixteen-year life span, we've seen the hobby community's rapid adoption of social media, rules systems go through dozens of editions, and the astounding impact of the crowdfunding phenomenon on the hobby. Today we live in a Golden Age of the miniatures gaming hobby, with more choices than ever before. AdeptiCon's growth reflects this, growing from what was essentially a two-day show supporting a handful of events to a full four-day celebration with a schedule offering over 475 tournaments, gaming events, and hobby seminars and classes.

AdeptiCon's continued growth and expansion happens because of people. From our passionate attendees, to our dedicated staff, to the generous support of our exhibitors and sponsors, AdeptiCon's fifteen-year success story has been written by everyone involved. And along the way, AdeptiCon became something more than just gaming convention. It has become a community and social experience that extends our basement gaming table or local club night into a long weekend of celebrating the hobby we love with good friends, some of whom we only get to see once a year. And while we live in a time often characterized by division, we can set aside, at least for the next four days, those things that divide us and focus on what we all agree on – our love of painting and playing with toy soldiers!

So whether this is your first AdeptiCon or just your latest, we welcome you to an event we remain very proud of. It continues to amaze us, even after fifteen years, that no matter how large the AdeptiCon community grows it still feels very much like a family. So get those dice warmed up, make those last minute tweaks to your army lists, and definitely stay hydrated, because the battles begin now and glory waits for no one...
