Nintendo DS Game Case

Why purchase an expensive game case from Gamestop that is as big as the actual DS and only holds four games, when you can make a smaller, sturdier one that holds eight?

Supplies:

Step 1: Empty Out an Altoids Chewing Gum Tin

You may

-eat them at a leisurely pace and have an empty tin in a week,
-throw out the gum because you don't like it anyway, or
-stuff your mouth with as many as you can comfortably chew and be done in a few rounds.

Step 2: Put in Your Games

One can fit up to eight games into one tin, or four games and the plastic cover for slot-2 on the DS Lite.

    on Elite Beat Agents, did you unlock the hard rock level

    i have like 8 games and i use this tin thanks so much for the idea, i've been using it for like a year i think. if you need to hold like 50 games buy and r4 chip and a usb device to copy the ds games so you can legally own all the games and have it on one cart

    A lot of people have that many DS games. I do. I'm trying to find something that will hold at least 50 games. There is one thing called the Nintendo Ultimate Game Library, but they're really rare and hard to find. I've been playing around with different cd cases, sewing, gluing, etc, trying to make my own, but so far I haven't found something that works well enough yet. I hate lugging around a small handbag full of cases and cartridges.

    Did you take a look on those stamp collection foils? They are the same like those for collecting card games, but smaller. I think you can get them in A5 or even A6, that would make a nice system to store DS games. Lucky me, i only own 1 DS Card, and that is always in the DS :)

    I bet that that one game card, just spitballing here, is the R4 or AK2/AK2i. Tell me if I am right, and that is what I recamend that dude with like 50, since that is waht it holds, or even more. If you don't know what that is then look it up on google.

    Nope its an Cyclo DS Evolution, in my opinion way better then the other ones. It just has a problem with the ezflash V+ memory extension for slot2, but thats already adressed, and they'r working to get it going with the next firmware upgrade.

    Also, it works better if you dent in the bottom so that it is flat instead of curving in, then the top closes nice and easy.
