    Quoted from neverahighscore:

    Most played game ever in the game room. ... 2 play, 4 play, young & old. Everyone enjoys. Good luck!-Joe

    Yep, same here. Chexx is awesome.

    I bought my original Chexx for $300, not working. Re-soldered a fat resistor on the power supply that fell off and it was back to normal. Found extra players to make a Toronto Maple Leafs -vs- Montreal Canadiens one day.

    Great game. Good luck.

    Quoted from shirkle:

    Like pinball, minor mods can be made. People put logos on the "boards", ...

    That's a great idea! Never thought of that, thanks.

    ... Tim Horton's, CBC, Moosehead, Crappy Tire, ...

    Quoted from YZRider926:

    Yes. You need to have a 35" door to fit the non split base through a doorway if i'm not mistaken. I've been researching these and planned for it be my next purchase, untill MMR was announced. Who knows it still my be my next toy.

    Not quite true.

    The door to my basement is a standard 32" wide and I *almost* couldn't get the base down my lousy, horseshoe-shaped stairs. Scary. It was very tight but I angled it down the ~37" wide stairwell somehow.

    Quoted from catboxer:

    I have an original. I wish I could find the red grips and bumpers for it.

    I have a complete extra set of original red grips and bumpers. Gimme a PM if you're interested.

    Quoted from marlboroman:

    Finally got my original 6 fathead nhl logos : ) now I need to find sponsor stickers for the boards, anyone have leads where I can buy some?

    Just find the logos you want online and print on sticker paper.

    Found a '94 Super Chexx for a great price so, with a heavy heart, I sold my nice '83 Canada -vs- Russia to my bro-in-law down the street.

    This was my first attempt at painting the players and took much longer than I anticipated. Therapeutic.

    The jersey logos were updated using transparent water-slide decal paper. You might notice the USA team now has the '88-'94 logo and the stick in Canada's logo is now black, instead of the original all-red. Please note I added decals to the goalies' sticks too.

    Pics attached are before Krylon Crystal Clear clear-coat. I really hope the paint keeps after CC because the acrylics I used rub off very easily.

    Anyway, I'm pleased with my first attempt, hope the paint lasts, but would likely buy newer/whiter players should I eventually make a Toronto -vs- Montreal set. Also, I would add the names and appropriate numbers to the player's backs.

    I also added sponsor logos to the 'boards'.

    Good fun; great game.

    Was there a Russia vs USA 'SUPER' Chexx? I thought that was the original Chexx, not super.

    If that's the case, I think $1350 is too much. I'm thinking at least half that, especially if it has gearbox issues, broken players, and/or crummy playfield/ice.

    Quoted from MinusWorlds:

    Just got a Super Chexx. I'm gonna need this mod please

    Yeah, me too, please! Very nifty! Scoring will be even more dramatic!

    Although, could it be done without modifying the original lighting?

    Quoted from lpeters82:

    I'm going to need to do something like that for my Super Chexx. I like the smaller goal light, but honestly I think changing the top lighting to red has a greater impact. Could you provide more details on how this is accomplished. I'd like to try to do that on my machine. Alternatively, or additionally would it be possible to add one of those mini beacons to the top of the machine? I think that would make a nice light show.

    Geez, you're right about the top lighting. Initially, I didn't really recognize the lighting colour changing and thought the main lighting simply dimmed to emphasize the red score light. Oops, wrong. Cool mod!

    Chexx '83 bases are so darn wide and I couldn't get mine down the stairs of my bro-in-laws. PIA!

    ... so I cut it in half! Added a 38" folding metal, supported by wood, not unlike the new bases. Only have to unscrew 4 bolts on each side and disconnect the one speaker to split.

    It would be great to hear the Canadian national anthem.

    I wonder how difficult (or easy) it would be to swap videos? Make some cool custom videos.

    Quoted from Chris1199s:

    It’s also pretty easy to change from United States national anthem to the Canadian national anthem, this is done using the selection control buttons on the outside of the stand/base

    Would you post a video of the Canadian national anthem playing, please?

    Quoted from Chris1199s:

    Here are the additional national anthems, Canadian anthem in English and in French and the Russian anthem

    Quoted from Blitzburgh99:

    Kids flock to Bubble Hockey! From a playing standpoint, foosball is much more difficult to master and get good games going for the casual players. My wife always comments that the Bubble Hockey got played the most when neighbor kids are over.

    Yeah, same here. When my kids (9; 13) have friends over, Chexx gets all the action.

    ... and Ms Pac. And Williams Upper Deck. Pinball is ignored.

    Although I quit over 10 years ago, I'm re-making the chrome cigarette decals for my '83 Chexx.

    I hate the game and I'm selling it tomorrow for $500.00 [quoted image]

    meh. Kinda shiny and new. Almost as nice as my '83 Chexx but counts shots-on-goal. I'll give you $300. Yer welcom .
