AdeptiCon 2023, now in the proverbial books, was, by all accounts, an epic event. Some of the metrics of success are quantifiable, with 6,500 attendees rolling dice in 735 events. We raised, with your help, $10,000 for charity, with additional independent fundraising by groups like TableWar and the Dice Heroes. We witnessed the galaxy-burning tabletop conflicts of the prestigious Qualifier for the World Championships of Warhammer, with Age of Sigmar and Warhammer 40,000 battles raging across four days. We saw three major World Championships in the ‘Star Wars’ universe of games. We stood in awe of the hundreds of incredible entries that populated the legendary Golden Demon painting competition, along with incredible displays of talent spread across five other contests. We even had a shuttle, running between our two venues, that was pretty much on schedule all weekend.
But there were also the less quantifiable, more personal AdeptiCon experiences. Young players sat at the demo tables and learned a new game. Painters, even veteran artists, picked up new techniques in a hobby seminar. And a group of friends who hadn’t been all in one place since college met and told tales of long-ago battles. Moments like these are the true metric by which we should judge a successful event and AdeptiCon 2023 was full of great memories.
But we can’t tarry too long on the past! Planning for AdeptiCon 2024 begins soon, and in some cases has already begun. To that end, we are happy to announce the dates for AdeptiCon 2024. March 20th through the 24th.
We will see you there.
