We have a very packed month for May. Dice Masters just released and has been a huge success. The president, Justin Ziran, released a statement regarding the release of this amazing game. The Hidden Lair stocks both boosters and starters, even with the shortage of product. We are running weekly casual play on Thursday nights and plan to start hosting tournaments this month. Heroclix has a new set coming out this month, and Deadpool is sure to be a very hot item that will sell out quickly.
April 5th, 2014 was International Tabletop Day and was a blast! WAND TV came out to enjoy some great games and good friends. We look forward to next year!
The Journey into Nyx pre-release was April 26th, and we had over 40 players! Ever since we opened last year our numbers continue to grow. We see several new players a week and during April ranked as a Wizards of the Coast Magic the Gathering Advance Store! This will allow us to hold larger tournaments and send players to compete regionally. All of this growth has led us to our impending move to a new building! The plaza that The Hidden Lair shares with Wilhoit Account and Tax, Bradshaw Consulting, Inc., and Quality Home Locator contains two separate buildings. We will be moving into the back building which will allow us to support over 70 players! This weekend, Saturday May 3rd, we will host a win a box release tournament. The entry fee is $10.00, and the winner of this event takes home a sealed box of Journey into Nix.
