Games of Future Past: The Ghost of AdeptiCons Yet to Come
First, AdeptiCon would like to wish you and your loved ones a very happy and safe New Year. It has been quite a year, and, like many of you, we would like to leave 2020 behind faster than a dropship making for orbit before an atmosphere processor goes thermonuclear. And while we are forced once more to defer AdeptiCon in 2021, we do see brighter days ahead.
It is with this eye to the future that we are very happy to confirm the convention dates for 2022. AdeptiCon will be held from March 23rd through the 27th in Schaumburg, Illinois. Hopefully this gives you plenty of time to make plans for your glorious return. There is little doubt that AdeptiCon 2022 will be our greatest celebration of the hobby yet.
In news more temporally current, however, we are very excited to announce the opening of the AdeptiCon Online Store. This will be the place to find all your AdeptiCon merchandise needs. Hoodies, t-shirts, dice, bottle openers, and challenge coins will be available right away, with more items following over the next few months. This will be your chance to get the soon-to-be collectible ‘AdeptiCon 18’ merch, from the AdeptiCon that never was. These items are great for anyone who already has a ‘Dewey Defeats Truman’ hoodie and a set of ‘Unsinkable Titanic’ pint glasses! Years from now you can proudly sport your AdeptiCon 18 t-shirt and fondly recall your lack of memories.
Once again, a Happy New Year from all of us here at AdeptiCon. There are a lot of lights at the end of this tunnel but be sure one of them is the ethereal glow of the Schaumburg Convention Center! See you soon.

Nice! Gives me extra time To build my armies and to finish other cosplay or two. It’ll be my First time attending.
Were we supposed to get our shirts from 2020
This will help as I love my Adepticon 18 hoodie and my puppy tends to chew on it.
Can I register for 2022 yet!? WHY NOT!? 😛
In my calendar!
That might actually give me time to finish painting an army!
Might we be able to apply our credit from 2020 towards these purchases?
Hell yes! This post made me smile real big. Luh you, mean it!

Their bases kick ass!!!
We hope that everyone is well in these unprecedented and uncertain times. It has been a challenging year for all of us. It is with a heavy heart that we must announce officially what many of you have already come to realize, that it will be impossible to hold AdeptiCon in March of 2021. The continued ongoing effects of the pandemic and the restrictions imposed by the State of Illinois mean we are unable to effectively plan and organize the logistical efforts involved with running the convention. As you may be aware, by late November AdeptiCon has already typically opened hotel blocks and launched registration and staff and attendees alike have started making plans to see old friends and begin new hobby projects.
Like Americans across the country, we are optimistic that brighter days are coming, but the fluidity of the situation does not allow for the firm commitments required to see AdeptiCon realized in the way we’ve all come to expect. We do not make this decision lightly and there is no group more disappointed than the AdeptiCon staff, but current restrictions along with our continued first priority, the health and well-being of our attendees and staff, makes cancellation the only option. We believe it is the responsible one.
To that end, we have notified and consulted with our venue and myriad partners to negotiate the necessary arrangements to cancel AdeptiCon 2021, while simultaneously securing the future of the convention for years to come.
We understand that this was not the announcement anyone wanted to hear and certainly not one we are happy about making. However, this decision allows us to focus fully on the future of AdeptiCon. Instead of being confined and limited by the uncertainty of current circumstances, we can focus on planning the best possible AdeptiCon 2022. It also allows us to continue the development of the Ancient Order of AdeptiCon perks and the launch of an AdeptiCon webstore that would make AdeptiCon merchandise available year round.
Once again, we appreciate your understanding, patience, and the unprecedented loyalty of our attendees. If you had chosen, previously, to roll your registration forward, rest assured that it will move to 2022/2023 without any issues. This has been a challenging time for the nation and while AdeptiCon thanks everyone involved in making the convention the best event in the world, from attendees to volunteers to exhibitors, we would especially like to acknowledge those of you serving your communities in the medical and first-responder fields. Your tireless work allows us to see the light at the end of the tunnel and gives us confidence that not only will AdeptiCon be back, stronger than ever, but that our country will too. Thank you,
The AdeptiCon Staff

Thank you for making the right decisions, they are always the hardest.
Sad to hear but expected and the correct choice to make. Even if it is hard to make. I can’t imagine the logistics of planning Adepticon and while I’m confident 2021 will see somewhat of a return to normal, I cant imagine it’ll be before the end of the year and that doesn’t allow correct planning. I look forward to the utter crazy party Adepticon 2022 will be and at least I’ll have time to paint my armies!
I love you guys and appreciate everything you have done and are going through. We will emerge stronger from this in the near future and I will look forward to hanging with the best of the community as soon as possible!
Correct choice in my opinion. Thank you for everything guys and for updating all of us...... Was looking at going next year for the first time. Oh well maybe in 2022.
Thank you for making the right call. Looking forward to 2022!
Well, it’s certainly not what I want, but it most definitely the correct/responsible call in this environment. Thanks for the update guys, see you in 22.
Thanks for the update and to the whole Adepticon team for the continued hard work keeping the dream alive. While it didn't take a degree in astrophysics to see this one coming, the communication is appreciated all the same. Can't wait to see you all in '22. It's gonna be one hell of a party!
It’s a shame folks couldn’t hold their water enough to care for each other over the course of this year. We’re all gutted, but this is absolutely the best choice. See you all in the future!!
Thank you for all your hard work and for making the tough choices.
Missing AdeptiCon friends, but glad you made the tough choose. Hope all are staying well and safe. Can't wait to see everyone again!
I will be there in 2022. Adepticon is awesome. As long as you guys keep running it, I will do my best to be there. Stay safe. We are all here to support each other.
The right call to make. Disappointed but looking forward to '22. Thanks for the update and all your hard work.
Thank you for making the choice, either way, early enough for us to prevent undo costs to us. I look forward to the next Adepticon when ever that occurs.
Thank you for the update and I hope everyone is well. I am disappointed, but at least I have more time to plan for 2022. Thanks!
Sorry to hear this, as I was coming over from London to this years, but totally understandable. Hope to see y'all in 2022! 🙂
Thank you for being honest, responsible, and keeping an eye out for the players. I will always love and promote Adpeticon as long as I can. And this is a big reason why. Thank you so muchf or all you do and we will see you in 2022. <3
Thank you for making the hard responsible choice. I look forward to having it back when it is safe to do so and then the party gets cranked to 11
Then I will see you guys in 2022! This wasn't a surprise, but I am certainly glad to hear of future plans.
While we would all love to be there, we appreciate you putting public health and safety first. Thank you for all you've done for the community and we look forward to an awesome 2022 event.
All this means is that everyone's armies and displays better look REALLY GOOD because we'll now have had 3 years to get stuff done.
As stated we were all expecting this(although dearly hoping otherwise!). Im happy to see that plans are in the works for the future though.
I was looking forward to my first Adepticon but totally understand. Things are in such a weird spot and the unknowns are huge. I can't wait to take part in person whenever ya'll are able to get things up and running again!
Might want to look at Australia or New Zealand to host. The have their countries in order, they do a propah' lock-down. Look at the freedom they have now. I'm down for a two week quarantine in March in the sunny southern hemisphere before attending a lovely 4 day Aussie Adepticon... Just sayin' We'll never get going with only half the team playing, in this country. Cheers, big ears!
No big surprise and the right call for sure. Who knows, maybe by adepticon 2022, I can have my 1st legion army ready for 30k.
Better to call it now and prepare to make 2022 a fantastic comeback event.
Enjoy this Black Friday and Cyber Monday with a huge 20% off sale on every product in our store!
