So... the Remnant is the same PCB as the Lexis and Ponx long PCBs.
I'm excited to add this one to the collection as it is a bit harder to find these longer boards...
One thing I noticed... and I haven't played the game before, so I am unsure:
The label of my cart is exactly like the one on the Black "Long Live the Lynx" carts.
Notice: in the fine print it states "CGE2K Special Edition"
Now, when I turn on the game, after the Songbird title screen I get a 'CGE2K Special Edition' screen as well.
Does this happen in the Long Live the Lynx editions? Is it the same thing?
I think Carl can answer this one (unless someone out there has a Black cart they can test this evening).
I don't know if there were special Remnant carts made for CGE2K (but I can hope... right? lol)
Editing... because I found this info on the net:

In an unexpected move, Songbird also announced the availability of a "CGE2K
special edition" version of Remnant, the highly-anticipated 3D space combat
game for the Lynx. "This is a game no Lynx fan should be without,"
commented Carl Forhan, owner of Songbird and the developer of Remnant. "It
puts the Lynx into high gear -- from the explosions to the 3D scaling to
the audio, Remnant sets a new standard for 'next generation' Lynx games."
This special edition of Remnant is a complete game, and features more than
a dozen sectors to clear in the Arcade play mode. A future version of
Remnant is anticipated to include a Strategic play mode as well, where the
player must repel enemy squadrons and protect friendly outposts. MSRP for
Remnant is $39.95.
Further on that site:
Looking for some cool space combat action on your Lynx? Try Remnant for the
Lynx, brought to you by Songbird! This awesome 3D game features 20
spectacular waves of alien invaders and meteors for you to eliminate. Only
70 copies of this special CGE2K edition were made, and no more will be
produced, so get yours while they last!
Now I guess the question is... is there a difference of this version and the ones in the black carts?
