[edit] History

[edit] First Games

First played by colleagues at ComplianceControl in September 2008, the game began as a work-time recreational pursuit. The idea was to find the most interesting game using equipment as cheap and readily available as possible.

[edit] Officalisation

The International Federation of Pringle Wangers (IFPW) was conceived at the end of September 2008 as an administrative body to officiate over the sport, manage its regulation and to catalogue the rapid growth of Wang players. The IFPW now operates from ifpw.org.uk as well as their Facebook page—International Federation of Pringle Wangers
