  1. Playmats for the System Open and the Destiny Galactic Qualifers will be available at AdeptiCon. Last year we knew the different mat designs well in advance to put together a survey and collect pre-orders. They just recently announced the Destiny mats for this season. We might yet put together a survey but most likely this will be handled onsite.
  2. We will be opening up any remaining tickets held for qualifiers to those on the waitlist shortly. So if you are interested make sure you get on the waitlist.
  3. A few slots are still available for the trilogy format on a Saturday, and it never hurts to get on the waitlist for any sold out events at AdeptiCon.
  4. AdeptiCon 2018 and the Star Wars Destiny Galactic Qualifier “Do. Or do not. There is no try.” -Jedi Master Yoda *Update* Due to demand both the Standard and Trilogy events have been expanded to 128 slots. We do not expect these slots to last long. AdeptiCon 2018 is honored to host both a Standard and Trilogy format 2018 Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars Destiny Galactic Qualifiers! The Galactic Qualifier is a series of international events where players of FFG’s popular card game can compete for a spot at the prestigious Championships. Running from November 2017 through 2018, the Galactic Qualifier stops in exotic locales from Madrid to Los Angeles. And, we are pleased to announce, Schaumburg, IL, where AdeptiCon (aka Hoth) will be a challenging stop along the Qualifier’s route. Every Qualifier participant will receive an extended art prize card and has the opportunity to obtain an exclusive play mat. There will also be a Hutt’s ransom in prizes, so start tweaking those decks and prepare for galactic civil war on March 22nd through the 25th at the AdeptiCon Destiny Galactic Qualifier!

  5. Shawn, I think that sounds like a great idea. Drop me a note at. hank@adepticon.org -Hank
  6. I wouldn’t draw too many conclusions on release dates from our email response. It is certainly one of the challenges attempting to schedule events for a yet unreleased game six to eight months in advance. We thought there would be a good chance, but also knew at the time that the schedule would potentially be tight to allow enough time between release of the game and our organized events. I know that Runewars will be at the show in some capacity still, and looking at schedule options as well as replacement events. We are actively working with Fantasy Flight Games, and will have some more concrete news in the coming days. Anyone currently signed up, will receive a full refund for the events. If you would like to cancel your entire registration (and receive a full refund), just contact info@adepticon.org, however you may want to see what other options are available before making that decision!

  7. First, AdeptiCon is obviously extremely excited to be part of the Fantasy Flight X-Wing System Open Series. This is an unprecedented opportunity to join what will surely be a historic world-wide event. If you have any questions about registration in the US, please email us at info@adepticon.org or visit the registration site at http://cart.adepticon.org. Second, I think everyone involved would have, ideally, liked to have had more notice. The team at FFG has worked extremely hard and have done an amazing job to put this event together. These types of projects invariably take time to organize properly. If this one is successful, hopefully we will see more. It appears there might be a few more ‘Star Wars’ movies in the works. We are strongly committed to making it the best possible event it can be. ‘Star Wars’ is global brand, and there is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes to get everything in order prior to its public unveiling. As for locations, keep in mind that conventions typically sign contracts years in advance, and most do not normally have large chunks of extraneous space open for use. In fact, we normally have the opposite - desperately trying to squeeze more into the limited space available. Fortunately, we had recently changed venues and are now in an amazing 160,000 square foot facility. When we were presented with this amazing opportunity, we had the flexibility to work with FFG to make it possible. So I hope those that are able join us for a fantastic slate of events!

  12. What does a Vicious Bloodletter and a Trandoshan Hunter have in common (besides the anger management issues)? Alternate Artwork! Fantasy Flight Games are providing some very cool alternate cards for some of their most popular games as prizes and giveaways exclusive to AdeptiCon 2015. X-Wing, Imperial Assault, and 40K Conquest events will have exclusive versions of standard cards available – just another reason to play some FFG events at AdeptiCon! While pre-registration for AdeptiCon has past, spots are still available at on-site registration for these events. So it's not too late as sign up, play some fantastic games and get some exclusive alternative artwork cards and other fantastic prizes as well.
