A key part of pinball’s resurgence, the IFPA tracks thousands of pinball players and pinball tournaments. Players are awarded WPPR points based on a few factors which include how well they finished in the event, who participated in it and how many people played.
A conversation between pinballers might go something like this:
Dave: “Mike, are you going to the pinball tournament coming up this May?”
Mike: “Maybe, where is it going to be held?”
Dave: “The arcade over at East Hasenpfeffer.”
Mike: “OK. Has is been wppr-ized?”
