Battle of the Arcades (BOTA) is a mostly annual team competition that pits arcades from across the country against each other in a two day long competition for the best of the best.
Each year 12 classic arcade games are selected for the competition that reflect a broad range of game styles and show off skill over luck. Part of what makes Battle of the Arcades special is the camaraderie built by being together in an arcade for two days. It feels like a trip back in time to the 80’s. Live video streaming is also an important part so non-participants can still watch the action live.
