    Quoted from vico2x:

    What’s up guys.
    I have a Superchexx Pro and the center logo is simply the ‘ICE’ logo. Is it possible to change to the NHL logo with a sticker or decal? If so when you put a sticker or decal on the ice does it affect the puck at all?
    I’m also looking for a riser platform for a red base. Does anyone sell those?
    Thnx!

    I am not sure on the NHL logo, but you can get a new ICE surface with any team logo on it from ICE directly. I don't know that I would put a sticker or decal on there.

    I have seen a bunch of custom risers but never anything commercially sold. If you come across this let me know, because playing for long periods of time is brutal on my back.

    What's the maintenance like on these machines? Reliable electronically and mechanically?

    Iooks like Aaron Taylor makes a riser. I just ordered a set of cupholders from him.

    I was actually trying to make them a while back but the interest was so lackluster that I never made one to sell. I do have one underneath my own game that I made. It just does not seem to be a high demand item for some reason. When I was marketing them I think I only had one inquiry in 6 months. Shipping and painting is a pain too, so it just added up to not be worth it. I think you'd have to charge like $500 including shipping for it to be worth it, materials aren't bad but the shipping cost is probably $50 to $100 easy, so you have $100+ in materials and $100 shipping, then you have a few hours labor painting and assembling and packaging the thing. I think I was only going to charge like $250 + shipping at the time (materials were way cheaper then) and still nobody wanted one, lol. It took me way longer to make mine than I thought it was going to take...if there was decent demand you could batch them and be faster, but the one at a time thing makes it slow.

    Right now I just make the cup holders for the games. If there was renewed interest in the riser I could look into it again.

    6.5 years on mine and no issues yet. Pre-Pro version. I Lemon Pledge the surface once in a great while and Novus 1 the dome. I have changed out the puck after a while, and the Chexx players get chipped. Some people put boots on the players to prevent chipping I guess. One of mine had his foot shot off.

    I have had my Miracle on Ice Super Chexx game for a little over 8 years and just recently the long stick Russian player's stick broke. That is the only thing that I have had to replace on my game since I purchased the game in September of 2014.

    In a home use environment these games are nearly maintenance free (unlike pinball machines). Wipe down the dome with a damp microfiber cloth when needed and some folks spray lemon pledge on the ice surface occasionally to keep it nice and slippery.

    Has anyone found a good red paint match for banged up corners of their game? Thanks!

    Lemon Pledge wipes, not spray.

    I use dryer sheets. Fold it in half, then in half again and that’s good for a single “cleaning” and has lasted for many games. Several hundred on location. I’m going to have to do it again soon but I liked the results the last few times.

    #2963 9 days ago

    Thinking of selling a 6 month old NHL Super Chexx Pro.
    Avs vs Golden Knights.
    Skated Avalanche Ice
    Split base
    No coin door
    PM me for pictures or if interested. Located in Colorado - no shipping.
    $4000
    Will likely put an ad up but thought I would try this group.
    Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

    Hmm, so the dryer sheets make the ice surface nice and slippery? Oh, it probably smells good too. I will have to try this next time I open the bubble on my game.

    Yeah, the sheets have just a little bit of anti-static chemical on them and it’s pretty slick when you apply it to a Super Chexx surface. I keep the sheet in a zip lock bag between uses. When I said fold it in half and then fold it in half again I wasn’t as clear as I should have been with what that gets you. When you fold it up that gets you 2 surfaces. Use one surface and then the next time you go to Zamboni the ice use the other side. Then unfold and retold so you have 2 new surfaces on the sheet. Keep doing this til you have used all possible folded surfaces. A single sheet can last for many wipings.

    One of the best products for cleaning and protecting is Plexus. It's specifically used for plastic cleaning and protection. It leaves no residue like pledge and restores plastics on a micro level. My Chexx looks brand new even after 10 years + . The ice is lightning fast afterwards. Works great on pins too.

    Take a one square inch sample to a local paint store and I’m sure they will be able to match it. GL!

    Anyone have a fix for the puck eject? Mine doesn't always kick out and when doesn't it counts extra goals. Anything to clean or adjust? Thanks yall.

    There is a metal arm on the puck ejector that you can bend to adjust. You will need to pull the ice sheet and see if the puck is rolling all the way to the center or getting stuck on the edge of the ejector arm.

    Found a piece of plastic under the arm. Works great now!

    My latest restore, I made it into Kraken vs Canucks! Lots of new parts, best custom nets, base painted, coin door installed, & dome sanded and polished! Next owner will have players painted, I didn't have time on this one. Now just 1 more 83 to clean up in my hoard!

    Anyone on the forum sell super chexx?

    #2978 6 days ago

    I’m sure many have come here, and posted the same thing, I think I want to buy one….

    I guess my big question is how similar is it to foosball? I had an electronic foosball I got when I was 8, we played the crap out of it for like 20 years or so. I got it back from my parents house a few years ago with the intention of fixing it (it was seriously a nice table) but the osb of the main had warped, plastics were cracked and not cleaning up that great, just beat to hell so we threw it out.

    This was truly the first arcade style game we ever had and once again, we played it like crazy. What’s the similarities in terms of playing?

    I was never a ‘spinner’ just a methodical shot maker slamming them in.

    I want the USA V USSR version.

    I love reading that it’s basically maintenance free. Hoping it can take a beating from kids too and long term play.

    Thanks for any input!!

    Hi GoldenBeard,

    That is a really good choice in picking the MOI (Miracle on Ice) 1980 USA vs. USSR version of the game. I purchased the Super Chexx MOI version back in September of 2014 and everyone loves this game and this version.

    I like hockey much more than soccer so for me this was a no brainer to purchase and the game play can be fast and furious and there is very little maintenance required in a home use environment. In over 8+ years that I have owned it other than wiping the dome down with a damp microfiber cloth there is really not much else I have done to it and it still looks and functions perfectly. The next time that I open the dome I will wipe the ice down with a folded dryer sheet which according to desertT1 works very well for keeping the 'ice' surface nice and slippery.

    Good luck in your quest to find your own MOI version of the game as I think that you and your family will get a lot of enjoyment out of it.

    Gord

    Looking for help here. What would you value this at and is it a good version? I don’t know enough about the various revisions that ICE has produced. Thanks in advance!

    They seem to sell for mid to upper 2s depending on where you are. In the Carolinas they sell in the teens since hockey isn't as big of a sport.
