Weekly Hobby Update : 3-28-18

Hey Everyone!  As all of you know this past weekend was Adepticon 2018 out in Schaumburg, IL.  It was an amazing experience once again where I got to hang out with friends and get to know them all even better.  While there wasn't much actually hobby other than food, drinks, and games my Hobby mojo is very high after such a great event so expect a lot in the future.  I plan to do more in-depth coverage of Adepticon on my Friday posts, but for today here is some of the fun that took place!

I took the trip out this year with my very good friend Sean (BrushforHire) and while it was a nine-hour drive it did go very quickly as we shared out passion for this hobby as well as filmed our travel out in some short videos via my Twitter (One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six).

I also want to give a quick shout out to a few members of my local gaming club who made it out as well for the event.  Cole, Jamie, Jacob, and Noah all joined the fun, probably due to my constant talking about how fun last year was and joined in all the fun.  Cole and Jacob played both 40k and Age of Sigmar team events, but after a great time in the Mortal Realms have committed to going all in for the Age of Sigmar GT next year!

I was overjoyed to be helping Paul with his Age of Sigmar Narrative event, The Gibbering Dome, and my first night in town was watching him help players craft a story.  The event went very well with the players enjoying the narrative and fun rules he created as well as his ability to adapt on the fly to help make the story much grander than the initial intent.  

The following day was Age of Sigmar Team event and I had the pleasure of playing with Mike who I know from the Twitter community using my Khorne alongside his mighty Skaven!  We went to the event for fun and to play new people and were not worried about winning every game and I am happy to say we met our goal and had three great games!

The last big event of the weekend was the Age of Sigmar Grand Tournament.  164 players began the event and it was crazy to see so many players together to play this great game!  On top of that, the Age of Sigmar Team Doubles had 120 total teams for their event and a small, but sold out Narrative as well!  My Daughters of Khaine were out in force and I was happy to see other Daughters at the event as well and doing well.  In the coming weeks, I will cover my over impressions, and event breakdowns to give you all the juicy details.  Come back this Friday to see my overall impressions of the event and the fun had with all the wonderful people I have become friends with thanks to our Hobby.

Until Friday, Happy Hobbying!
