Dakka Detachment 3, Adepticon 2012

Gwen and I just got back from spending the weekend at Adepticon 2012, and it was a total blast! I got a chance to play in the Warhammer 40k team championships, where I was a part of a 4-person team that played in a 4-round tournament. This event is a monster one; there were over 100 teams competing for thousands of dollars worth of prizes! We didn’t win a lot of our games, but we were lucky enough to win the “Best Hybrid Team” award. This award is given to the team that had the highest combined scores for appearance and theme. To say I’m psyched is an understatement!

In addition to the Team Championship, I also managed to get in a game of Dystopian Wars with Craig of the D6 Generation, which was a great time. He and I played a game at 500 points, his FSA vs. my Prussians. I managed to pull out a win, but it was a close, fun game! Later that night, Gwen and I sat in on a recording for the 40k Radio podcast, where I got a chance to talk about the cool experiences I had in the Team Championship. After that, it was time for the D6G Boardgame After-party. I got a chance to try two cool games; a Sci-Fi deck building game called Core Worlds, and a boardgame called Survive! Escape from Atlantis.

All in all, it was an awesome weekend and one that I will remember for a long time. I’m looking forward to going again someday, though it will be a while before I can make it back due to my schedule with the Navy.

    I never really got into Space Crusade as I was alywas more of a Warhammer Fantasy person myself rather than the 40k setting. I loved Heroquest. My character in the board game was a dwarf berserker. The DM played to this as he set a cunning trap. I charged into a room and triggered a rather nasty trap that turned me into an even more berserk Minotaur that went all out to kick the stuffing out of the other players. Dammed thing lasted 15 turns!!!!Anyway, I was well impressed with the Speccy conversion of Heroquest I thought Gremlin really captured the spirit of the board game. I might have to dig it up from World of Spectrum and have a play later!!
