Well, it’s not a surprise anymore, but 1UP Games in Westdale (777 King St W) is closed and is being moved over to the Downtown Gore Park Area, 105 King St E, at the old Rainbow Bridal space. Just remember that our Super 1UP Games location is still open in the meantime for all of your shopping needs – 1917 King St E – 289 389 4263
We’re now bigger and brighter than ever before!
We’ll be expanding our comic selection, as well as adding board games and toys to the mix, on top of our retro video games.
It doesn’t end there! There will be a mini arcade in the basement, along with two escape rooms, and we’re currently working on fixing up another room to host Super Smash Bros tournaments along with Board Game and Card Based games. It’s a work in progress so please be patient with us. We’re aiming for an October grand opening.

Just want you all to know both stores will be closing early for today. We will be closed at 3:30 PM so everyone at the store can go to a visitation.
Sorry that we had to close up early, but we would like to pay our respects and help out a friend.
It’s that time of the year again, ConBravo time! Which means both stores will be closed from Thursday to Sunday this July 23-26 Weekend. We’ll be there selling our stuff and bringing our arcades to play in the game room. Hope to see you there.
First and foremost, we want to thank everyone who has supported us. This May will be our 10 year anniversary. That’s right, 1UP Games has been around for a decade! So thank you all for your support and friendship.
Secondly, we apologize for the lack of posts on our website. It’s been a crazy few months with tons of tournaments and special events taking up our time. So here are some highlights from the last few months.
- Our Thursday Night Fight Nights have been going strong! So if you need to get some Smash 4, Street Fighter or Guilty Gear sessions with other people, you should come down.
- Feb 14th Smash Love tournament was a great success! We hope everyone had a good time and we’ll be setting up another Smash Tournament very soon. Check in for details. We’re also looking into doing weekly / bi weekly Smash sessions at Super.
- Just this past Sunday we joined forces with the Baltimore House for our new friend Jesse’s birthday. She called it Seven Screens Sunday. It was a great time full of drinks and old school video games littered around the Baltimore House. Again, we’ll be doing a few more events like this in the future with the folks from B.H. Thanks to Jimmy, Grant and Jesse.
Last but not least, we are looking into another venture that is video game related. But we’ll need your help in doing so. Keep an eye out for the Kickstarter Campaign we’re currently working on. It will introduce a cool new spot to downtown Hamilton for all us gamers.
Hope to see you soon in the store,
