    Quoted from SUPERMAXX:

    A question for anyone here —- I have brand new machine - anyone have any issues with speakers crackling or anything like that ???

    No issues on my end. I would call ice tech support.

    Quoted from SUPERMAXX:

    During game play? Or when the game is in standby. I obviously don’t have my game yet, but it sounds like a amplifier issue if I had to guess. I also would check your ground wire.

    It would be nice if they could develop this game so 1 or 2 could play.

    If only one player the game would make the moves, and maybe have difficulty settings.

    I really don't think my girlfriend would be interested in playing, or I would love to have one of these.

    1 on 1 play is the majority of the usage at my house. You aren't dedicated to the goalie, but it's the same as 2 player foosball games, you set it and come back to it. It works well. There are 4 player and 2 player tournaments for foosball, same thing here.

    If you could just have a friend or a few friends come over and play it once a month it's kind of worth it in my opinion. Also you might be surprised how much your gf might enjoy playing bubble hockey. You said she likes pinball right? She may like bubble hockey too. Even if she played a few games a week with you it would be fun.

    Hey question for all of you. Does anyone’s puck look like it’s beat to F*€£?? We had some friends come over today and after playing about 15-20 games. The puck looks shredded. I’m assuming I’ll be buying new pucks soon.

    Just finished the basement this summer. The room is slowly growing. Gym done, TV is up, Super Chexx is here and now to working on my NFL mini helmet wall. (Yes, I have all 32 teams)
    The last phot with the lit wall (Right of the TV) is where the helmet wall is going.

    For sure..ICE did something different with their puck quality a few years ago. Newer pucks get chips in them pretty easy. 20 years ago they never did what the newer ones did. I just bought a bunch when I was restoring my current game and swap them out when they start looking bad. It doesn’t really affect play much, but I like a nice puck in the game.

    The other thing that’s been happening with my Super Chexx is the puck got stuck a few times in the puck track, didn’t make it all the way down to the ejector. Had to tip the table to get it to move. I really hate to pull the ice this soon. The games is only 3 days old.

    Is the game 100 percent level? That may make a difference.

    Gord

    Yes 100% level. I checked it when it happened the first time, thinking the same thing. Then it started to happen to both sides. Now I’m thinking it’s the puck.

    #2529 11 days ago

    Maybe the puck tolerances during manufacturing have changed. You may want to try a different puck to see if you still have the issue.

    I was reading in this thread how some of the newer pucks seem to chip easier which seems strange. My Super Chexx (USA vs. USSR) is 6 years old and the puck still looks brand new and I have only had the puck get stuck once in the puck track that I recall and I picked up the table from one end and set it down and dislodged the stuck puck.

    Have you called tech support at ICE? If nothing else they will likely send you a new puck to try out.

    Sometimes my puck will get stuck in the goalie net where it falls down under the playfield to return to the center to eject but I've never had it get stuck in the track itself yet. I think Multiballmaniacs picks get stuck occasionally in that track. Might be able to stick something in there like a pipe cleaner to clear out any debris? I bet Blitzburgh will have an answer for you. He doesn't know anything about football but he knows his shit on these Super Chexx games.

    Just talked with David at ICE, he told me to try the other puck and see what happens and if the problem seems to be the puck he'll replace it.
    So I guess I'll have to play more tonight and test it out, oh darn!

    #2532 10 days ago

    I have some minor scuffs on the dome that I am hoping can be removed. Can anyone recommend what product to use to try and buff the scuffs out? They are just surface scratches, not deep at all and would prefer not to use a machine to buff them out.

    Thanks

    After a Christmas party a few years ago I noticed that there was a scratch in my Super Chexx dome and I was able to remove it completely using Novus 2 followed by Novus 1. Be sure to use a nice new soft clean microfiber towel when rubbing and buffing the dome using Novus 2 and then Novus 1.

    It took maybe 15-20 minutes of hard rubbing by hand with the microfiber towel and Novus 2 and Novus 1 to complete the task. The scratch was not super deep, but it was noticeable and now all trace of the scratch has been successfully removed from the dome and the dome looks like new again.

    TAZ-sorry your experiencing that issue - a machine of this quality should not do that

    #2536 8 days ago

    Not finishing basement at all just carpet and some awesome art work on concrete - too expensive to finish rather have more machines

    It’s a minor glitch. I played the other night and it seems okay. I’ll pop the dome tonight and see what I can find.

    #2538 6 days ago

    So I popped the dome and everything is working fine now. While I was in there, the lemon pledge Zamboni made a few laps. The puck is SCREAMING now!

    Their website says 1/3 of these limited editions are already sold out.....

    #2548 2 days ago

    Anyone looking to buy a new Chexx. Try using code MJNG9890 to save 50$ On ICE’s site.

    The Miracle Limited Edition is like the LE they did back in 2005. At the time Chexx was never sold with a black base. They released 100 black base games with a small plaque on the scoreboard with the number of the game and on the sides of the base had a large plastic badge that said SPECIAL EDITION SUPER CHEXX 2005.
