    Can someone give me the dimensions of the boards all around. I want to try and make some promotional boards with some of the decal material I have been using?
    Something along these lines:

    If I end up with more than 20 takers the person giving me measurements will receive a free set. Price will be set at $25 per set.

    UPDATE:
    I will create roughly 36 different board pieces. People will get to choose the pieces to fill their rink. X will be mandatory as they will include the blue and red lines.

    25-5/8 x 1-1/4
    There's a ribbon cable in the middle of one of them. Each side on the one with the ribbon cable is 12-1/4.

    Now I just need 20 people . Thanks for the measurements any chance you can measure from end of to middle of blue line so I can integrate the lines on the boards pls.

    #4 2 years ago

    No problem, hope it works out, would love to have side decals on mine.

    #5 2 years ago

    Talking about the blue lines how far are they from centre? Wondering as well why the boards don't go further out? Visibility issue? I want to extend these as far as possible. I could also put these on clear with white blocker and have them go all the way around with a half translucent yellow base so you could see the puck from the back I was hoping for the measurements from net to net

    #6 2 years ago

    I would be in if we can choose the logos printed. If it's the logos shown in the pics, I will pass. Great project!

    #7 2 years ago

    Ill take a set with socotia bank dunkin donuts keybank lol

    #8 2 years ago

    I don't mind putting any logo as long as everyone agrees. Needs to be pretty general to be somewhat international. I just thought exlax and juicy fruit made slogan was funny same thing with Viagra and mcdicks slogan was funny. I did want to put Dukin donuts and a FBI logo together lol

    #9 2 years ago

    I might be in as well and agree with changing some of the company names. How about some more hockey names like Bauer, CCM, Easton, etc? Fun project and a much needed "mod" for this game

    #11 2 years ago

    In theory you could put boards all the way around. To fit right, you'll probably want to make them into sections.

    I want to go all the way around the ice and have the ice ends be half opaque / half transparent. The yellow part of the boards will be transparent so people can see the puck if it's stuck on the side of the boards but the upper part will be opaque like the sides to put more ads. I just need enough interest to start going.

    I went all the way around and added the yellow board as well. I love the way it looks and would recommend to anyone as a great upgrade.

    In your honest opinion, do I really need the transparent bottom at the ends of the rink?

    #15 2 years ago

    Not at all. I've never had an issue seeing the puck and I usually play with my 2 girls and they have no issues either.

    #16 2 years ago

    I should add, I tried to apply decals to the ice surface as well and at first they would not stick at all. After, I thought it was just way to much going on and scrapped the whole idea.

    #17 2 years ago

    Just curious....What would it cost if I wanted a set using all logos that I chose / provided? Thinking along the lines of past companies / small businesses my family has been involved in over the years....maybe mixed with some others. I could provide file in whatever format you'd want for printing.

    #18 2 years ago

    Very cool. Add me to the list of interested parties.

    #19 2 years ago

    I'm in as well

    #20 2 years ago

    What's funny is I went back and looked at mine and apparently alladins castle already did it on my original chexx with their logos lol

    #21 2 years ago

    I'm in also

    #22 2 years ago

    I still need someone to give me the measurements of the entire perimeter of the boards. This could be finalized as soon as this week and starting shipping next week. Just need measurements. height of boards, length of boards (all the way around)

    #23 2 years ago

    All the way around is 133"
    height of board is 1.4" white part
    yellow part is additional .3"

    other thing to take in is behind the goal has a ramp so puck does not get stuck and in two of the corners
    but it looks like pictures from spencer the boards have room to mount them behind these ramps

    Yup, they fit behind the ramps, no problem. ( it is tight but it works )

    #25 2 years ago

    I would be interested if the logos were different from the ones shown

    These were just samples. Doing the real deal today.

    That looks great did you just print the yellow board or is it plastic.

    To OP I'd be interested if you could choose own logos.....thanks

    #29 2 years ago

    I'm interested in one, pending the final look

    #30 2 years ago

    133"... now that I think of it seems really long... 11.3ft to be exact. Can anyone confirm that? And can anyone confirm the height. 1.7" or in mm is fine too. I still also need distance of blue lines from center ice as well as the width of the blue and red lines.

    It would not be profitable as it would take about 1.5 hours if not more to find the logos (hopefully all vector) and then getting only one printed would take the RIP time, plus printing time, plus lamination time. You wouldn't see anything under $200 at the very least. When I do these I do them in bulk 100 sets. It makes it more affordable for everyone.

    Its plastic. Same as the original boards.

    Where did you get the plastic and how did you adhere it??? Or can you buy it directly from ICE??

    #34 2 years ago

    They sell the original, but I'm not sure how "bendable" it is

    I bought it off someone else, can't remember if it was Pinside or not. It has double sided tape on it and was a bitch to line-up, bend and install straight. The results are worth it though.

    Spencer you mind giving me the height of the damn board LOL. I'm integrating the yellow board with my design. The decals I am doing will be in 7" pieces that way they will be easy to line up and keep the entire thing straight.

    #37 2 years ago

    Wish I had a Super Chexx - great idea!

    The yellow trim? the decal? both? What are you looking for? Just let me know and I'll measure it up.

    The entire height combining the yellow piece and then the entire length around the boards. I also need the distance between centre ice and the blue line along with the sizes of the red and blue lines.

    #40 2 years ago

    I too am interested in this. Love my Super Chexx!

    #41 2 years ago

    i'm in MY SUPER CHEXX is by far my best arcade game (pin or video or arcade) I have ever had!

    following that one link to the ICE website.. I found that OMG.... they have a SUPER CHEXX T-shirt $14.95 free ship... well, a MUST!!!

    #42 2 years ago

    I'm in ... count me in for 1 set please. THANKS!

    did you get the measurements? My chexx is on route, but I could try and make a stop sometime soon.

    Problem is I've received two sets of measurements and they are different. I need someone to give me the height of the boards including yellow portion has the sticker will contain both white and yellow portions. I also need the entire length all around the rink and then I need the distance between venter ice and the start of the blue line along with their widths (red and blue lines). I can't start until I have concrete information.

    Yes...one person says the height is 1.25, the other person says it's 1.7

    Also as far as the yellow part, the first guy said it was 25 5/8. ICE sells the yellow strip in 13 1/2 length or 28 length. Is this because you're supposed to use two 13" pieces on the ribbon cable side and one 28 piece on the opposite side? And wouldn't this mean the length overall should be 28?

    Edit: I just measured my original chexx which has some remnants of ads all around and the two side pieces and I believe the proper measurement is 28" wide and the ads are 1.25" high, not including the yellow side board.
