    Great price for all of these! It's always good to have spare parts for an older Super Chexx.

    Lol I'm getting too old for fisticuffs these days. Heck I do good just to stand all the way through a game of bubble hockey.

    #2558 32 days ago

    I saw a YouTube video last night and they were saying ICE is going to start making home versions of several games that they make including the Super Chexx bubble hockey game.

    They are going to be 3/4 scale and at a cheaper price point but no prices have been set yet. They will have a pop a shot basketball game, skeetball, claw machine, bubble hockey and I'm not sure what all else. I think they said 2 weeks they will be coming out and talking about it. This should be interesting.

    Some updated wall swag for the Bubble Hockey side of the upper gameroom. Also added under cabinet sound activated color changing led's. Really cool with the jukebox jamming and bubble hockey call-outs!! Slap Shot was the first R movie I saw. I still love it today. Played Ice Hockey in High School and College and when I turned 21, I searched for bars that had a Bubble Hockey to play. I knew I would own one someday. It was the first non-pinball I purchased long ago and still the most played game today!

    Nice to see a top of the bubble mod like I have. The metal plate lends itself for a topper with magnets.

    The strip that the goalie slides on broke, so I got a new surface. Wow it’s white. I knew the old one was not great, but it was quite yellow in comparison. You can see where it broke, on the left side. It had been hot glue repaired previously but gave way after 200 or so plays on location. Didn’t really want to hack job it back together so I got a new one. The kids at the rink watching me do this we’re pretty happy. Now that it’s done, so am I.

    Some of my friends want to come over tomorrow night to play some bubble hockey. What’s the best way to do a tournament? Double elimination? also how long should I make the periods.

    1 minute periods are the best.

    Run a basic double elimination bracket with best of threes.

    How many players?

    Ended up doing double elimination with 8 players with 1:30 periods . Wish I would have done 1 min periods. It took a long time. Also had last chance puck on.

    Congrats on your first Tournament!!! A second bubble hockey game will shorten the event time! Haha!! There’s a guy in New Jersey, John Gafney, that hosts regular tournaments with a group of friends. He has 3-4 games in his basement to speed things along and keep people from sitting too long.

    One minute periods are for sure the way to go especially with the last chance puck on. I’ve had games that last almost 10 minutes that way. The stand for your game looks nice just need to add an extra 6 inches so I don’t break my back!

    Hello,

    I recently purchased an 83’ Chexx game. The lights, puck and sound work... but the period indicators are stuck at 3rd period on one side and 2nd on another and the score is blank (not even a zero). Do you guys know what it could be?

    Thanks,

    Change the coins per game to zero and that should do the trick.

    #2573 24 days ago

    Update: sometimes when I turn it on, it displays a score but the game is then impossible to start unless I unplug it / plug it in again.

    Recently joined the club. They rarely pop up for sale in Utah.

    Thought I’d share a tech tip/experiment. The ice surface in the game was warped in a decent-sized area. I figured I might be buying new ice anyways, so I’d try fix it with a heat gun and weights. It didn’t work, even lightly applying heat made it worse and attempting to heat more and put weights on it only got worse, the weights did nothing. Given time to cool the ice returned to its previous but warped state. So for now to at least temporarily fix the issue I’ve put double-sided tape in a number of problem spots on top of the rails. So far so good, but I have doubts about it for the long term.

    Not sure if it's still hot enough in Utah but if you get a 90+ degree day take it out in the sun and put it between two pieces of glass with some weigh on top. The sun will make it soft enough and the weight will flatten it back out. This is a great way to flatten and pinball playfield plastics as well!

    Just buy a new ice surface...you’ll be glad you did.

    Hello all, hopefully I'm in the right place, was just recently given an old cx-83 Canada vs USA. It's definitely in need of some TLC but for the most part its all good. But as of right now I'm having a problem with goals registering on the left hand side (when facing the coin slot). I'm waiting on an actual game puck to arrive but have been using a magnet to test the OH sensors which work fine but when placed by the sensors for the goal instead of it registering I get the sound as if I've hit the boo button, the right hand side works just fine and adds a goal. other than that, think about the only thing that needs work is the puck ejector replaced. If anyone had any ideas or suggestions on what the problem might be it'd be greatly appreciated.

    If you press the boo button does it score a goal? Maybe some wires got connected wrong. Search http://pinrepair.com/arcade/chexx.htm for "Chexx CPU Board Architecture" and there are links for the schematics. Part3 has the goal sensors.

    Hey all, I recently purchased one of these bad boys from someone local as a gift for my father-in-law.. he's always wanted one. I didn't realize how difficult it would be to find some replacement parts though so I was hoping I could get some ideas from this site.

    The one thing that definitely needs to be replaced is the cable that goes from the CPU to the scoreboard.. One of the pins on the cable burnt out causing the scoreboard to flicker randomly. I was told that I can't dig out the pin and replace. Does anyone either a) have a replacement harness that I could purchase from them or b) know where I can look to find them? I spoke to a gentleman via email who said that he could sell me one half of it but I would need to crimp it, which I'm always up for a challenge, just don't know if I want to test it for my first time doing it on this piece.

    Any info would be greatly appreciated. I included some pictures if anyone wants to check it out. Cheers!

    -Sean

    Nope, pressing the boo button still triggers the boos. even jumping the pins for the goal sensors triggers the boos and thats when I started to really get puzzled. but thanks, I'll take any literature I can on it

    #2582 11 days ago

    Stupid me had a big lapse in thought, I only jumped the pins at the sensor board. when jumping the pins on the actual board it counts the goals. so looks like I'll be checking the wires and sensor board for a short

    Any difference in gameplay between the super chexx and shelti slapshoot?

    I owned a slapshot about ten years ago and was thinking of buying a super chexx

    Is the extra cost worth it

    Corvette vs Chevette. There are people who couldn't tell the difference between the two cars. The same will be true for some with bubble hockey. But every aspect is a good correlation: especially game play, parts availability, and resale value.
