Re: Strawberry Shortcake... a PB board wouldn't fit into an Atari shell, would it? 

 

It could be a case like this:

But personally I don't think it is.

Here's a strange cart I just picked up online. Every now and then I pick up a game lot just cause one cart looks strange and the overall price was cheap enough not to break the bank but still leaves me with questions.

So here's this month's I wonder what it is. The cart says musical in the middle and filmokoma musical at the top left. The seller doesn't remember what the title screen says for as company but it was some kinda music game. Basically I figured strawberry short cake musical game ( but the cart case sint parker bros) or grovers music maker cause that was an atari cart. Any who this needed up being a 3.00 what is it since the lot came with 9 carts ( 5 intv and 4 a2600 carts and 3 a2600 controllers). Figure I'd share the mystery with you all and see what ideas you all come up with. Are there any music games I'm missing for the 2600 that this could be?

I'll be home at the end of the month to try it out be figure the more minds look at this and think about it maybe there's a good answer to what it might be.

 

Here are some extra pictures sent today. Looms like it had an end label at some time.

Text looks more like MEMORDMA in the picture. Doesn't give me a strong lead.

 

Posting a cart with an envelope label with hand written text really pointless, though there have been discussion of old 2600 games. Why not wait until you plug it into the 2600 console when you get home and then post the result?

 

The one thing I can add is the screw which is normally hidden by the original label leads to an Atari 2600 brand 1st party cart; if a spring loaded connector dust cover a good sign. Plug that cart in (after cleaning the hidden connector) to avoid all the guessing!

I figure I wonder what it is and what it could be and since I won't be home for.a few weeks I thought why not share with the group and get a few other thoughts and minds joining me in wondering what it could be. Thought it would be fun and harmless.

You won't get many other answers I'm afraid.

Grover's Music Maker comes closest.

I think we've all decided that it's got to be one of these (in order of likelihood):

 

A. Grover

B. Strawberry Shortcake

C. A new and unknown prototype

I still don't get why they went though the trouble of labeling the cart and the metal shield around the rom on the board.
