Well here we are post AdeptiCon. Now that I’ve had sufficient time to recharge the batteries, numb the pain in my knees and feet, and finally get some sleep, we can recap what happened at AdeptiCon 2016.

After a long day of game Saturday night kicked off the second annual Mantic Open Night. This was a very huge event for Mantic in the US with 60+ attendees there to listen to Ronnie Renton’s every word during the Q&A. Mantic North America’s own Chopper and Jonny P were on hand to record the session and should go up hopefully soon for those who couldn’t make it.
After the Q&A open gaming started with games of Dungeon Saga, demos of Deadzone v2 running. Pathfinder Todd ran a giant Kings of War Monster Battle, and Pathfinder Mike ran a 10,000 point Mega Battle. A six player, winner takes all, Dreadball tournament took place as well as tons of give aways, door prizes and Ronnie dancing while announcing the raffle winners. So all in all, Mantic Open Night was a blast and look forward to a bigger room and more people!
Well that closes the door on another AdeptiCon. For those of you we saw,met and talked to see you next year. For those that we didn’t, we hope you had a great time, and we hope to see you next year!
