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!  :)
