The Coming StormâŠ
As the summer winds down and the days grow shorter, thoughts once again turn to the inevitable question: what new project am I starting for AdeptiCon? Well, 2019 has been a banner year for tabletop miniatures gaming and, as a hobbyist, your choices for 2020 will be unparalleled in the annals of wargaming history.
From Games Workshop unleashing Warcry! upon the Mortal Realms to Fantasy Flight Games taking the high ground with their Clone Wars additions to Star Wars: Legion, the hobby is flush with amazing games and fantastic new models. Whether you choose to command a horde of goblins in Tomahawk Studioâs new SAGA: Age of Magic or prefer the role of centurion leading a cohort of legionaries north of Hadrianâs Wall in Warlord Gameâs new SPQR or even - are you ready for this? - taking your team of legendary heroes into a battle against Doc Ock and the nefarious Red Skull in Atomic Mass Gamesâ Marvel: Crisis Protocol, your gaming choices are myriad and the quality unheard of.
And you better believe you can expect to see all these new offerings and more at AdeptiCon 2020! From matched and narrative play, tournaments and one-off convention games, AdeptiCon 2020 looks to be unrivaled in its offering of different game systems and events. So start your annual machinations now. Donât wait for the chill winds of winter to start building that new warband, army, gang, fleet, maniple, team, or whatever youâre thinking of bringing to the world class celebration that is sure to be AdeptiCon 2020! ...

AdeptiCon 2020 Hotel Updates
As summer draws to a close, it is time to start thinking about AdeptiCon 2020 (if you havenât started already) and where youâre going to make your temporary headquarters during the big event.
This year, much like 2019, we are making several options available to accommodate as many attendees as possible while keeping room rates as affordable as we can. The first option, which will go live on August 16th at 12:00 PM CDT, is a four-night minimum stay with a one-night non-refundable deposit ($133). The second option will go live on August 23rd at 12:00 PM CDT and includes a block of rooms at the Renaissance Schaumburg which will be open for two-night reservations with a one-night non-refundable deposit.
Additionally, we have once again partnered with several nearby hotels to provide accommodations at discounted convention rates. Blocks for the alternate hotels will open on August 23rd. These hotels currently include: Comfort Suites Schaumburg, Hyatt House Chicago/Schaumburg, Residence Inn Chicago Schaumburg, and Springhill Suites Chicago Schaumburg.
Reservation site links will be added to the AdeptiCon website shortly.
As always, we recommend booking your room reservations as soon as possible. AdeptiCon 2020 looks to be our biggest convention yet and we expect rooms to go fast. And then, once your room is booked, you can relax, enjoy the waning days of summer, and get back to modelling and painting those new models! ... See MoreSee Less
Will any of the suites at the Renaissance Hotel be made available to book? We're staying Wednesday - Sunday.
Suggestion, hold a raffle at $10 per ticket for a chance to guarantee the opportunity to book a room. Still have to pay for actual room. Trying to book and not get a room when you were done in the first 3 minutes is annoying.
Are you kidding me? I selected a rom, then by the time I entered my CC info it said there are no rooms available. What. The. Hell?
Was sold out by the time I checked out.
Will the link allow me to book two rooms for my group or will two of us have to book one room each?
With the two night blocks is there an option to add a third night? Three nights would be perfect for me.
Will the partnered hotels be offering shuttles to the convention?
So we would book rooms on the 16th by using the links on the adepticon web page, correct....NOT by another booking site, renaissance site or by calling the hotel directly Correct?
Is the Embassy Suites not a hotel partner?
This is noon friday correct?
Chris... It's about to go down.

AdeptiCon 2020 Hotel Registration Date Announced
First, we hope everyone is having a great summer, filled with lots of sun, sand, and table-top gaming! Second, while AdeptiCon 2020 is still a few seasons away, it is once again time to start planning your convention accommodations. Weâve been working closely with the Renaissance Schaumburg and our other partner hotels to provide as many rooms as possible at great rates.
The AdeptiCon 2020 convention hotel block opens for registration on Friday August 16th at Noon Central Time.
As many of you are aware, the conventionâs block of hotel rooms tends to fill up quickly, so we recommend reserving your room as soon as possible. The AdeptiCon room rates for 2020 are, once again, a great deal and we are happy to make these rates available to our attendees.
We look forward to seeing you in March! ... See MoreSee Less
Thank you. Awesome to know the day in advance so its not a crazy rush moment of posting. Can't wait
Thank you for the update. Hopefully I will get a room. First time trying to go or Adepticon! Can't wait!
I cant wait to fight a overloaded server and then see all the rooms gone 5 minutes after it goes live.
Thanks for the advanced notice!
I can’t wait! đ
Oh well; I’m out of the country that day so I’m SOL!
We look forward to having you back in #chicagonw!!
Will it be the same as last year where 2 nights go live one day and 3 nights go live another day?
Going to try and make it for the first time!
Time to take the day off...
Extended stay America is a mile away at typically $55 a night...
Is this for the Embassy also, or just the Renaissance?
What were rates like last year? Current non-event rate is $399/night.

I wish i can go to this!đ
Why does geek nation get an instant option for a VIG upgrade and the rest have to do a lottery system? Seems a bit weighted to the pay to win approach.
Any word yet on when us lowly plebs will be able to register for hotels? I'm starting to get nervous....
For the time crunched who are curious.
We gotta be closing in on hotels!
