What’s New at the Hidden Lair

There is a lot new coming into the Hidden Lair this week, so lets get right into it.

First, we’ve got Dice Masters: Age of Ultron.

Age of UltronTalk about an amazing Marvel summer. Coinsiding with the release of Avengers 2: Age of Ultron and the more recent Ant Man, the latest Dice Masters set features a combination of all new characters – in Dice Masters – along with some fan favorites brought up-to-date with new features and abilities. This set has classic characters such as Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Black Widow, and Captain America… wow, that roster sure seems familiar, doesn’t it, along with new to the scene characters like Rocket Raccoon and Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain Marvel, Kang, and lots, lots more.

If you are a fan of comics and have always wanted to get into Dice Masters, now is a great time.

Next, we have Magic: the Gathering Origins.

Magic OriginsTalk about a great entry point into the game, Magic Origins gives players the chance to play their favorite Planeswalkers during their rise to power. Each deck features a different Planeswalker and tells the story of how their spark of power first emerged. Decks feature beloved characters such as Nissa, Gideon, Liliana, Chandra, and – my man – Jace. These decks play with some new features to the game while sticking pretty close to basics, as each of these Planeswalkers focuses on a different color (Nissa being Green, Gideon being White, Liliana being Black, Chandra being Red, and Jace being my personal favorite, Blue. Yes, I’m THAT kind of player). So if you are finally ready to take the plunge and see what Magic: the Gathering is all about, here is your chance. Otherwise you can take this opportunity to see how the greatest heroes of Magic: the Gathering came to power, and get some great cards in the process.

Finally, all you Yu-Gi-Oh! fans should be happy to hear that we’ve got the latest expansion, Crossed Souls, in stock and ready for you.

Crossed SoulsCome on in for all your Yu-Gi-Oh! needs and take part in our weekly tourneys for your chance to be crowned Champion of the Lair.

For more information on any of these great games, be sure to stop by the Lair. We are always eager to help you get the most out of your games. Also be sure to check out our Demo Shelf if you are interested in trying out something new and don’t forget to check out Gamemaster’s Gametable for more on many of the great table-top role-playing games you can find at the Lair.

We hope to see you soon.
