Best Button Mash-Off

Tournaments at Spacebar Arcade

Staff Pick

In 2012, Spacebar Arcade combined beer and video games, laying its claim on terms like "throwback," "old-school" and any word with the prefix "nerd." In 2013, Spacebar took its game to the next level, hosting regular arcade tournaments. The rules were simple: sign up, play your hardest, high scorers at the end of the evening win prizes. With games ranging from Galaga to Mortal Kombat, Spacebar had the gear to put a cramp in Boise's collective button-mashing thumbs. 200 N. Capitol Blvd., Boise, 208-918-0597,
