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.
Battle of the Arcades is an in-person, team based competition focused on classic arcade games of the 80’s that showcase skill over luck. Teams from around the United States gather for two days in a local arcade to showcase their skills and put up the best scores possible. Game play is streamed live to the internet, along with real-time scoring.
Battle of the Arcades was first held in 2012 and the 2017 installment marks the fourth running of the competition. Watch and support 2084 in their battle run for the 1st place!
