Friday Night Magic
The Hidden Lair has been open for about 2 months at its new location and the decatur gamers love it! 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.
The store also runs tournaments for Yu-Gi-Oh, Heroclix, and Kaijudo. Yu-Gi-Oh has been around for quite some time and we already have a large following for this very popular event on Sunday’s at 1:00. Heroclix is still up and coming, but is Andy’s all time favorite. Stop in anytime and he will get you going with this exciting game. One of the best things about Heroclix is the low cost to create a winning team as well as it’s detailed figures from all different genres. Kaijudo is a game based on the Saturday morning cartoon and is great for kids 8+ years of age. While the Kaijudo tournament is hosted, we have a big screen TV that plays Kaijudo for the players to watch. Kaijudo tournaments run every Saturday from 11-2.
The January newsletter was posted on the stores website today and announced the addition of new league play rules. Andy and I plan to post more details about that on The Hidden Lair website over the next few days. We are also getting these scheduled for Born of the Gods, which has a pre-release weekend schedule for the end of this month.
