In the middle of doing some reorg with new stuff I hadn't added to the shelves yet. I happened to see something I'd never noticed before. Anyone know why multiple companies used the same cartridge cases? Looking at the Fisher Price games, Wiz Math, & Quest for Quintana Roo, all have identical cases. Did they all use the same supplier? Just curious if this has been discussed before.

Just seen this.

Only can remember the Fisher-Price games are blue and red.

I need to give a look to my collection for the form factor.

Yeah, I noticed this a few years ago. It was probably the result of a few phone calls back in the day, where a company would let another use his mold for manufacturing cart casings, instead of creating their own plastic injection mold. Anything to save on production costs. :)
