Funny timing, as the guys from Patola FINALLY wrote me back (if you remember, we had a discussion about importing the cart shells from Brazil a few months ago, and they finally wrote back with samples of 1000, 2000, and 5000 pieces). The price is very low

How low is very low?

Considering that most homebrew games don't go over 200 units, the pricing on the new shells is a bit high. Don't get me wrong, this is a great development and I'm all for spending more on manufacturing in order to avoid cannibalizing old carts (which I don't like more from an archeological preservation angle vs. a time-sink one).

It would be nice to know whether we should pursue Patola after all or whether it's not worth the hassle.
