Battle of the Arcades 2017: Arcade 2084 – see us compete live on Twitch.tv

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.

SC3 is returning to Anaheim on Saturday, April 22nd at 2084 Arcade, a private facility jam-packed with ’80s arcade classics in Anaheim. The hours are 4 p.m. to midnight. If you attended any of our previous 2084 events, you know what to expect.

With nearly 100 classic machines, including a few pinballs, 2084 has been hosting arcade get-togethers every few weeks for quite some time now, and on April 22nd 10th, SC3 will be there with their complement of home consoles, game trading and other goodies.
