  • The boxer

    Our video guy wants us to try a game called "the boxer." Any of you have one of these in your centers? How do they do? I heard they are loud. What are your thoughts?

      Yes it is a punch machine.

        These machines rely on male testosterone in a never ending battle to prove who's manliest. Quality of machine is important, since these machines take a lot of abuse and lesser units will quickly start suffering solder fractures on display boards.

        Actual measure of punch strength is based on the speed the ball goes up when hit. It's a soft padded ball to reduce risk injuries, but you can sprain your wrist on the things.

        Falling ball versions are possibly the safest. I recall a pirate themed machine with a pad that raised up in front of an animatronic skull behind a stout plastic dome. The dome was shattered in the middle where someone had mistakenly punched it instead of waiting for the pad to raise. I'm guessing broken bones were involved.

          I'd have paid an entry fee to see that.

            Darn right. I'd have encouraged him to hit the dome while filming it.

            Yeah, put your money in... Now ignore those flashing "start" buttons and just punch the dome right now.
            Do it now, quick! That skull inside the dome just said he pumped your Mom.

              Incidentally, the boxing machines are widely available and not that expensive. Do a search on ebay for boxing machine or boxer machine.

              They really are a consistent earner by the way, so it would be worth trying one.

              Also take a look on YouTube for the same description to see some in action.

              (But they can be very noisy when punched hard.)

                Yeah men+alcohol + boxer = profit, seen far too many "hard men" re "dickheads" fill it with pound coins like its going to pay out! Very loud, once first installed you think someones rocking the **** out of your veending machines or something, and make sure its clear of obsticals either side, as alcohol makes people miss and hit all sorts, keep a cctv camera on it if you can, so if anyone decides to run up and kick it or trips over and hurts themselves you have them on tape using it incorrectly and they cant claim against you.
