How do you store/organize your VB games?

Iím been meaning to ask this for a while. How do yíall store your carts? For my cartridge-based consoles I have drawers designed specifically for them and for my GameBoy and GBA games I have these cool mini-binders that hold carts, but I donít have a good solution for VB carts.

So Iím looking for any and all ideas. Personably, Iím thinking I would like an enclosed solution that can sit on my shelf, but Iím open to anything that works and keeps them together and protected from dust.

I store mine stacked in boxes and repro boxes in my Detolf case.

For my GB, GBA and N64 games I use acrylic nail polish displays like this: https://www.amazon.com/Gospire-Bottles ... T=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch

Alternatively you can look into a case like this: https://www.amazon.com/Ikee-Design-Org ... fRID=V2H1EBKK8M1F9GS6TFA9

Or you can look into wallet display stands like this: https://www.amazon.com/Acrylic-3-tier- ... 3&keywords=wallet+display

I love this one guy's YouTube channel because he focuses on how to display your collection in a nice way. Check out DiskCart on YouTube. You may find more ideas that work for you.

Currently, my carts are in a stack, outside their boxes, in a shoebox in a plastic bin somewhere in my house. :] I don't recall, but I might have actually put my Tennis cart back in the spot in the VB box where it belongs.

I'm waiting on a better flash cart (something more akin to an EverDrive) to come out before finally putting the carts back in their boxes, and I still need to pick up plastic box protectors.

I went with the DS-case solution for my loose carts.

I've mentioned this before, but here's the box I made to store my loose carts. Takes a few seconds to find the game you want but it works.

One of these days I'll make a sturdier version out of hardboard/thin plywood.

Thanks for all the ideas and I'd love to hear more if anyone else hasn't chimed in yet. I am thinking I personally might prefer something similar to TerryJ's box design, assuming I can't find a good magazine option like I have for my GB/GBA carts.

Incidentally, I contacted a fellow on Twitter who it is probably fair to say is a 3D printing enthusiast and does designs with practical retro gaming uses (he is the guy that designed the Hi-Def NES no cut mod parts (for toploader NES systems) along with some brackets that allow you to use off-the-shelf fans on a few retro systems, so no don't need hard-to-find OEM fans, just to name a few). He exrpessed interest in designing a VB cart storage solution, but said he is backed-up up with projects right now and to get back to him in a few months. So if anything becomes of that I'll post it here on this thread.

I stuck all of mine in the system box since its missing the inner cardboard. If not they'd be in a generic box of some sort.
