Where are all the INTV white label games?

Those are non-screw type. They actually could be used, but it’s a pain to reglue them after you take the cover off.  
 

So I just listed them all on eBay.

I would of guessed a ton of Poker games, but not as many as one would think!   This line up for the pic was totally random. 
 

Back to scraping.....

Actually not sure, may be sealed with plastic when manufactured?    I just have to glue if I take apart. 
 

Now we have some progress.

Why?

Why would you strip each of those carts of their own unique identity?

To update them to a brand new existence?

Brilliant idea!💡

Oh yeah, isopropyl alcohol in the middle and propylene glycol to the left. Or at least it used to be until the manufacturing was fixed in 2014 or whatever they did. For a short while it was banned over here for that reason.

Yeah, read the heading Health concerns to understand what I meant by my previous comment. The maximum propylene glycol is 0.1 g/kg in the EU compared to 5.0 g/kg in the USA, i.e. 50 times higher. Fireball themselves replied with that "PG is a regularly used and perfectly safe flavoring ingredient. PG has been used in more than 4,000 food, beverage, pharmaceutical and cosmetic products for more than 50 years. Most people consume PG every day in soft drinks, sweeteners, some foods and alcoholic beverages."

Dodged a bullet on that!   
 

the link states: As of 2018, Fireball does not use propylene glycol in any of their products.

Are those a rare variant?

Yeah, they developed something else to extend the shelf life of the liquor. The fact that a rumor was going around the Internet that Fireball contained anti-freeze probably was enough to convince them to move away from using PG entirely and then be able to be proud about it, regardless if it was safe or not.

I haven't been able to find one, though I suppose it is mostly the box that I am looking for.

 

All the ones without the Keyboard Component seem to be HK. I just missed one, and I think Orth and CMart each have one (but not extras).

The propylene glycol is used in many common laxatives. Rev, you dodged more of a bullet than you know...
