It would cost over twice as much if you used the same production techniques as the other new carts, like Okie Dokie. Why? Because you would have to scrap double-enders and they are worth more to most collectors than your average extra pac-man and berzerk. If you were to work out a way to use common carts and "connect" them into a double-ender, the price would still be slightly more than twice the price of a single cart. I much prefer the idea of a 4-in-1 or an 8-in-1 with a 2 or 3 switch dip. Over that I prefer a menu-driven cart! :) +++++++++++++++++++++++ ===== Matt VIGOR ++++++ ========================= + Matthew B. Vigor | http://home.earthlink.net/~mumbv/index.html = + P.O.
