Fantasy Flight Games Declares Adepticon The New Hoth

January 28, 2016 by deltagamegirl22

With the HUGE announcement from Fantasy Flight Games yesterday, it’s time to focus on Hoth- the new Hoth. AdeptiCon has been assigned the planetary designation of Hoth and will host two qualifier heats on Thursday and Friday (players may only participate in one day, not both) of the convention.

All players will receive a BB-8 promo card and those accumulating eighteen or more tournament points on either day will advance to the Star Wars: X-Wing Hoth Open finals on Saturday. All participants in the finals will be awarded System Open Spoils based on their performance and the champion receives travel and hotel accommodations to the sold-out Stars Wars Celebration in London this July!

This qualifier will be one of eight events in eight nations, culminating in the Coruscant Invitational this July in London, England!

What does this mean for gamers that have already signed up to participate in the X-Wing events at Adepticon? The answer is only great things! You are already in, if you’ve registered up to this point- so now it’s time to bring your A game, or perhaps more appropriately your X game?

For those attending that love Star Wars and may not be up to the task of tournament X-Wing play, the BoW crew are sending over the Assault On Hoth Participation Game featured at Salute last year! If you’re at the convention, you’ll have a chance to check it out and have a go.

If you won’t be in the neighborhood for Adepticon, don’t worry, we will be there to Live Blog and bring you all the gaming and Star Wars goodness.

How will you be participating in all this Hoth excitement?
