Game Time in Tualatin Valley


If you like games–especially retro games–Tualatin Valley has got the game for you! Whether you’re a pinball wizard or a Ms. PacMan queen, or if modern board games are more your style, check out these awesome places to get your game on.


Hillsboro is now home to the largest pinball and retro gaming arcade in the Pacific Northwest. Next Level Pinball Shop and Museum features more than 120 pinball machines from 1986 to the present, and more than 130 arcade games to play. Fans of retro pop culture will appreciate the collections of toys, action figures, lunch boxes and album covers that adorn the walls.

Go back in time at Arcade 2084. This ’80s themed bar and arcade opened in Downtown Hillsboro, bringing a fun and retro experience to Main Street. The arcade includes your favorite old-school games like Jr. Pac-Man and Robotron 2084, ’80s music at all times and specialty themed cocktails to sip while you play.

Board Games

Also new on Main Street in Tigard is Versus Board Games and Senet Tap House. Versus (now open) is a retail shop specializing in modern board games, as well as card games, dice and more. Upstairs at the taphouse, the 21-and-older crowd offers a library of games available to play. Grab a pint, a game and play a board game.

Just a few steps from the new Versus Board Games is Stumptown Escape Games, which boasts oversized escape rooms, challenging puzzles and high-quality set designs. This fun, fast-paced interactive attraction has five different theme rooms, including some that are Oregon-themed.
