Traditional Favorites Return!
Anyone who’s attended an AdeptiCon in the past can tell you about our signature events – the kind of tournaments you won’t find anywhere else. All of the traditional favorites will return, so register early at www.adepticon.org/cart to reserve your spot and a chance to win glory, fame, and some of AdeptiCon’s legendary prize support.
New Challenges Await!
This year, we’ve added even more tournaments to our roster of events, and greatly expanded the list of demos, bring-and-battles, and other non-competitive events! Best of all, many of the demos and other non-competitive events are FREE with your AdeptiCon Weekend Badge. Note that many of the free events have limited space, so pre-registration at www.adepticon.org/cart is highly recommended to make sure you can take part in the events of your choice.
Read on to find out some short descriptions of both our traditional and new events. Full descriptions and event rules can be found online in our web cart at www.adepticon.org/cart and the www.adepticon.org website.

While I'm not given any reason for this to be fake, all savvy internet users should be wary of scams and fraudulent activity. The buyer beware and all that.
With the skeptic in me satiated, thank you for giving us the heads up. It's nice to hear of these events early so we can plan on attending, rather than waiting to the last minutes.
Not a problem at all. Seeing as how Adepticon is the largest Games Workshop tournament in the Midwest, if not the country (I know the Team tournament, with over 300+ participants last year IS the largest GW tournament anywhere) we want to give everyone as much notice as possible.
I know my voice may not carry far as much as validity goes, but any Warhammer/40k player in the Chicagoland area, if not the whole midwest can validate the fact that Adepticon exists, and has so for 5 years now. Feel free to ask any questions you might have, and I'll do what I can to get an answer for you.
Whoa - can register already? Seems so... soon!
This is going to be my third year with Adepticon, and those two years have been loads of fun! If you are in the greater Chicago area, and you play GW stuff, there is no reason for you not to come IMHO. Plan to sign up though, as tickets always run out (for the competition part that is)....
