Champions of the Lair – New Gaming store in Decatur, IL

The Hidden Lair has been reopened for a month now and the support is overwhelming. They see double digit turn outs for games such as Magic the Gathering, Catan, Yu-Gi-Oh, Heroclix, and many more. The very first Yu-Gi-Oh tournament had about 20 participants. Andy, the store manager and part owner, came up with a great idea called The Champions of the Lair. Whenever the store holds and event the winner of said events is bestowed the title of Champion. He or she is interviewed and an article written about this person on The Hidden Lair website. So far ten skilled players have earned the title of Champion of the Lair hereby named.

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.
