View Full Version : Cleaning and storing carts

Do you guys clean any new carts you get, be it Atari to SNES or Gen games and how do you store the loose ones?

Right now all my NES carts are in my game case, sleeves or no sleeves. My other loose Atari carts I have at home (from a trade with CS) are on one my new bookshelves next to my three boxed 2600 carts, then my 2 Lunar 2 games with FF7 and 8, then my 6 Genesis titles.

I clean them all and then put them either on a bookshelf or a CD rack. But I don't consider myself terribly hard core.

I clean my games up really well when I first get them. Most of my games are on standard bookshelves, but my NES games required something different. Those games are all on custom shelves I built myself. Really, it was very easy, and not too expensive. I just picked up standard pine board from my local Home Depot--the width is perfect for NES games, and spaced out shelves that were five inches apart. Screwed them together with wood screws, slapped on some backing, and bam!! Instant shelves. It only took an afternoon, and I think the games look quite attractive in the shelves. Very space efficient as well.

Atari games (I don't have a lot) are in some shoe-type boxes in my game-room closet, along with various other odds and ends. I found some holders for them, but I don't like them much...
