Are you aware
That you might have a flair
For games of any kind?
The place is an ace.
Puts a smile on your face
Hydra’s Lair is one of a kind.
I will just give you the basics:
Trading card games, comic books, video game systems,
Wii capability and Xbox soon to come.
Come take a look
You might just get hooked
But you’re sure to have some fun.
Wednesday is “Dungeons and Dragons”
A fantasy table top game.
Please take a seat
You can feel your heart beat
But, know it’s a game for the sane.
Thursday is for painting.
You can paint your figures for games.
They will each have a part
With your own art
And I bet you remember their name.
Friday is “Magic: The Gathering”
A battle with wizards and spells.
All that you need is your deck of cards
And the “Planeswalker” will do it well.
What can I say?
It’s not out of the way
But a place to relax and have fun.
So put out the word
An oasis for nerds
All ages are welcome to come.
