Year Started: 1993
Owner: Bradshaw Consulting, Inc.
Manager: Andy Still
Description: The Hidden Lair, formally known as The Lair, is a gaming shop in the Central Illinois area founded by Derrick Lee Bradshaw, Sr. The store’s original location was in Mt Zion on 121 where the current Ace Hardware resides. The store was moved to Decatur in early 2000 and purchased by Bradshaw Consulting, Inc. where it operated on the corner of Wood and Jasper. The corporation started to use it’s connections to branch into more than just hobby and gaming products and soon the gaming part of the store was put on a back burner. Even though most of the attention was given to these other products, this small gaming store continued to supply gamers with much needed content. In early 2010, this store closed down and moved back to Mt Zion where it occupied a very small building in downtown Mt Zion. With the corporations attention no longer being diverted, The Hidden Lair was given the growth it needed, and Oh-My have they grown! The Hidden Lair is now located in a brand new building with room to host weekly sanctioned events in games such as Magic the Gathering, Heroclix, Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon.

  • […] The Hidden Lair has been open for about 2 months at its new location. I was recently interviewed about a card game called Magic The Gathering. The store has not carried this game since the mid to late 90′s and since the release of Friday Night Magic, it has changed dramatically. Since the purchase of our plaza, which also houses Bradshaw Consulting, Inc., Quality Home Locator, and Wilhoit Accounting and Tax Service, we have much more space to host this weekly event. Now, due to our new and improved space, the decision was made to pick this game back up and provide a place for local magic players to play. Andy, the store manager, expressed the need for this in the Decatur, IL area. Because my goal all along for the shop has been to provide a place for young adults, like my kids and adults like myself, to have a location where they can go and enjoy each others company, it just made sense to begin hosting this event.
