He Shot, He Scored! (Way Back When)

I'm looking for a table hockey game (rod hockey, not air hockey) that I played as a wee 'un back in the 80s. It featured a super-slick surface, 3D players, an electronic timer (and goal counter), and a behind-the-net left winger.

I believe it was Swedish--it may have been a Stiga game--but can't seem to track this game down. I've checked the Stiga sites, as well as TableHockeyHeaven and the like, and no luck.

I ask, of course, because my son has reached the age where this would make a plausible gift for him (but an even cooler one for me).

BTW, this painfully beautiful wave of nostalgia was inspired by a (deleted) MetaFilter post.

Other than the behind the net left winger, sounds like superchexx to me. The one I played a lot was USA v. USSR and you could hit a boo button.

Best answer: You said you checked TableHockeyHeaven, but it sounds like the Stiga Pro Hockey Electronic. We had one as a kid (in Sweden), so I don't know if they sold them internationally.

YamwotIam, it was my post that got deleted. My cousin's husband makes these amazing big table hockey games. He calls it the Ultimate Hockey Table. (Yes I know it is kind of a self-link, but it seemed appropriate here).

Response by poster: No complaints from me, bove. Those are gorgeous games. May I ask why he started making them?
