If you ever got the chance to combine everything you love into one place what would that place look like and what would it be called?

 For Scott Hampton it is a video game, card game, and comic book hobby shop called LAG Hobby and Gaming.

This cozy hobby shop is a video game lounge where you can come and play for hours on end for only a small fee.

The cost of joining this group is $6.50 per 2 hours. $30.00 per week (unlimited gaming and entrance to all tournaments), or $100.00 per month (unlimited gaming and entrance to all tournaments).

Every Saturday at 3 p.m.  the shop has tournaments where you can come and enjoy watching or participating in a video game or card game tournament.

At LAG they don’t only sell these memberships. They also give you the option to pawn or trade in items that you may have lost interest in.

Hampton said,  “I brought everything cool to one spot!” What is more cool than sitting around and relaxing with friends while still being able to play some awesome video games?!

They’re located at 5727 Godfrey Road, Godfrey, IL. The hours are 11 a.m.-9 a.m. Monday  through  Saturday and there is an option to rent the space on Sunday. For more information call Scott at (618) 616-9158.
