Pinball Makes A Resurgence In NWA

Cottonbro

A game decades old is experiencing an international revival and Northwest Arkansas’s pinball bar is here for it. 

  • Multi-generational: Pinpoint is a bar in Fayetteville that now hosts monthly tournaments as part of the International Flipper Pinball Association (IFPA). The bar has almost 50 pinball games in its collection and has over 30 players attending tournaments on a regular basis. 
  • Go play: It costs a $1 IFPA fee to play in the tournaments that are held every second Sunday of the month, and newcomers are always welcome. If you aren’t comfortable in a tournament setting, Pinpoint also hosts one-night-play games on the last Tuesday of every month.
