Geek Nation Tours now booking for Adepticon

Geek Nation Tours is now booking for next year’s Adepticon (assuming we all make it past Dec. 21 of this year, of course).

From the website:

Geek Nation Tours is happy to present our tour to the world’s largest tabletop wargaming tournament – AdeptiCon. AdeptiCon has a multitude of gaming experiences for the discriminating wargamer. AdeptiCon offers tournaments using a variety of different wargaming systems, a huge amount of seminars and shopping too. It is a spectacle to be seen and experienced. Game with the very best, meet friends from around the world, and take part in the very best in gaming and painting seminars.

Geek Nation Tours was the first to bring you guaranteed AdeptiCon registration. We offered those that hop on the tour the opportunity to pre-register before the general public. This year is no exception – book prior to October 31st 2012 and you will be able to pre-register for all events in advance to them going public. Don’t come half way across the world only to have the spots you wanted disappear…

In addition to pre-public registration last year Geek Nation Tours gave you AdeptiCon’s Very Important Gamer package also before the public was even offered it (it also sold out in days last year). This year is no exception! The package includes Preferred Check-in, an AdeptiCon T-shirt, and an AdeptiCon glass – but most importantly you will get ½ hour advanced early entry to the Vender’s Hall. Thats right! No waiting for hours in the Forge World line in 2013. If you want your resin you will be able to get it. Geek Nation Tours is trying its best to help all our international clients. Don’t have access to all the cool gaming venders at home? Come join us!

This year we have included both the VIG and Regular Adepitcon weekend pass in the tour price. Therefore all you need worry about is what tourniments and seminars you will attend. We love making it easier for our tour participants!

You want more? Geek Nation Tours will be again giving away one “Go” Battlefoam bag, and Teras (your Geek Nation Tours representative) will even open his wallet for one lucky tour participant to do some shopping in the vendor hall…$150.00 for your shopping pleasure… See below for details….

We also managed to pull together a few meals for you. The day you arrive we will be headed off to the Tilted Kilt – always a gamers favorite… Thursday night take part in our “AdeptiCon Welcome Dinner” and hear guest speakers from Black Library, 40K Radio and the AdeptiCon crew themselves. Not only that we will be adding speakers as we go forward… We will meet every night for dinner and if you can join us all are welcome. Friday we will head off for some Chicago Style Pizza at “Giordano’s” and Saturday night we will venture off to exchange stories of battle over beer at the Rock Bottom Brewery. Finally, relax on Sunday as Geek Nation Tours has grabbed us some tickets to the AdeptiCon mixer and poker tournament. For those of you who are not poker players we will make sure several boardgames will be set out for some “beer and pretzels” style gaming. As a matter of fact 2012 saw the crew from the “D6 Generation” run a gaming night. And it was a dozy… Everyone agreed that it was one of the most enjoyable evenings of the whole trip.


Day 1 (Wednesday – April 17th ): That’s right Geek Nation Tours has added a day to the tour and we will go on a couple of extra adventures this year…

Arrival in Chicago with Private Transfers all the way to the Westin Lombard. Don’t want to worry about getting to the hotel? We’ve got you covered! When we arrive Teras will show you around the hotel and make sure you know where all the Adepticon events will take place. Need to know where to go? Teras will be there to help get you going in the right direction. It will be hassle and stress free.

Later, join us at the hotel for our exclusive “AdeptiCon Welcome” dinner. Guest appearances by “secret” Guests of Honour (with question and answer), Romeo from BattleFoam and 40K Radio will be there so we can pester him with any foam or podcasting questions that you may have. Most importantly, for all those looking for a bit of advice on how to game at AdeptiCon we will have an exclusive “AdeptiCon Survivor Tactics and history” presentation by the AdeptiCon crew.

In the past we managed to have Dan Abnett, Chris Wraight, C.L. Werner and Andy Smillie from Black Library as our special guests. We were treated to a long, intimate and very fun Q & A at the “Welcome Dinner”. This year’s special guests are still in question but be sure that Geek Nation Tours will line up only the very best quests for you. We are going to add as many as possible to our “Welcome Dinner” so return often to keep updated. But with that said, this year we have changed things up a bit.. Not only will we have the above special guests but we will be announcing a special Pro Painter Guest that will come to our Welcome Dinner to give us some painting tips and how he/she came to be the painter he/she is today….

Plus no more line ups! Geek Nation Tours will be handing out all your event tickets, passes and swag at the “Welcome Dinner”….

Day 2 (Thursday – April 18th ): Today you will see Geek Nation Tours at war!!!! Well not Geek Nation Tours but its tour participants!!! Well not “war” really – but Laser Tag!! We will be headed out to the Enchanted Castle for some Go-Kart racing and Laser Tag goodness. Get to know your fellow tour participants as you put them to the blaster….See your foes fall before you even before you get to the Adepticon tables….

Let Geek Nation Tours treat you tonight as we will be off to a gamers favorite the Tilted Kilt for dinner. Hopefully we can convince some special guests to join us as we did last year…..More to come on this event

Tour ParticipantsDay 2 (Friday – April 19th): Game and Seminar to your heart’s content. For those that can join us we will be headed off as a group for some Chicago style Pizza at Giordano’s (not included).

As a matter of fact, past participants agree that our meet-ups are an important part of the convention experience – a time where you can get to know other Geeks and maybe hear a great suggestion or two on what to do the following days, exchange “war stories” and have loads of fun. You can join us every night or you can do your own thing. Geek Nation Tours wants you to have the most freedom to “Geek Out” as possible so our meetings will be completely optional and you can come and go as you please.

Can’t find us at night and want to hang? You can locate Teras by Facebook Places, Twitter or just ring him on his mobile.

Day 3 (Saturday – April 20th): Game and Seminar to your heart’s content. Again, for those that can join us we will be headed off as a group to Rock Bottom Brewery for drinks and dinner (not included).Night Out

Day 4 (Sunday – April 21nd): AdeptiCon will be hosting their annual “Mixer”. We will join them for dinner (included in your price) and post dinner we will be offering at least two options for you to relax with some less competitive gaming. Whether it is poker, boardgaming or just hanging out at the bar this is sure to be a nice mellow end to an adventure filled weekend. As a matter of fact many many laughs were heard from our past tour members. We cannot stress enough how fun this last night was.

Day 5 (Monday – April 22nd): Return to your origin city

What is included: All hotel nights and taxes (we will be staying right on site at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center), Transfers to and from airport, Tilted Kilt dinner, All gaming at the Enchanted Castle, AdeptiCon Welcome dinner and AdeptiCon “Mixer” meal on last day (plus post convention gaming).
