Some Pics from Adepticon!

I took them with my cell phone, so they aren’t anything super special, but they should give you an idea of what was going on!

So it was a great time this year as always. We are bummed that our entire team got knocked out in the qualifying rounds, but hey, them there’s the breaks. I still did quite well with the old Nids, but not enough to go to the finals this year.

I did get to try some great new games though, which I really enjoyed a lot. We played X-Wing which I had ZERO interest in prior to this. Gave it a go and I have to say, it is a total blast. I really liked it.

Deep Wars was my favorite though. An underwater themed skirmish/RPG minis game that pits bands of crazy underwater gangs against one another in a super interactive, and dangerous environment. Here’s an example of what I mean: my funky fish warrior stabbed Jouglas’ Bioshock looking deep sea diver (equipped with a Gatling spear gun, no less!), shocked him do my guy have Electric Eel like powers which sent the stunned, and not so lucky diver into the jaws of a giant clam who subsequently ate him! haha 3D movement, your guys level up, it’s a ton of fun.

Dropzone Commander was very simply, but super fun. I definitely will be picking up a force to use for the store and show to folks. I just really love the aesthetic.

Firestorm Aramada was good fun. Again, a pretty simple game, but good fun, and the ships are really gorgeous and way bigger than I had expected.

Infinity was awesome, love the mins. That was my third run through of he game which is very complex, but good fun, too.

We also saw a ton of new minis and games. Robotech looks pretty, but as far as I could tell, there wasn’t a lot of variety on the Zentradi side. Just a lot of pods for now, but perhaps that will change.

Tons of awesome terrain, great people and fun. Adepticon really is awesome, it is definitely worth the time, energy and money to go.

    Hey, great time meeting up with you guys again! It’s too bad you and your crew didn’t do as well as usual. There’s always next year.

    Next time the booze is on me, I SWEAR.

    What other events are you guys going to this year? I prolly only have vacation time for one more event and I’m thinking NOVA as it’s within driving distance.. I’m up for suggestions, though.

      Great seeing you again, too! ANd well done on making the finals! That was boss. Sucks about your crap luck against Goatboy, though.

      Frankie is going to WargamesCon, I can’t though as I am going to a wedding with my GF. After that, Golden Throne in California, DuleCon in AZ, Comikaze in Los Angeles.

    I was the guy running the DeepWars Demos. Thanks for the love! You gents sure had a blast playing it! Due to the overwhelming response at Adepticon, we are hoping to hit a bunch of other cons this summer, but many deadlines have already past, so it may be tough. Hope to see you out there! Check out the FB group The Stygian Depths for the fans of the game.

      It was very nice meeting you, Patrick! Thanks for taking the time to show us the game, we really enjoyed it. We already have a group of players who’ve bought into it at the store and we’ve got every faction covered. We’d love to talk to you guys about working with us on our events. We run the largest gaming tournaments on the west coast and we’re gearing up to launch the Las Vegas Open which we think is going to be huge. We’d love to have you guys on board to help promote your game.
