    [TD]GBA carts are an odd shape and don't stack well. How do you guys organize your GBA games? I keep them in a small drawer but the lip at the top of the carts makes it impossible to keep the games lined up. Maybe I need to get cases for each game so they can stack up easier in rows.

    You can get replacement DS game cases since the old ones (non eco-cases) had a slot for GBA carts. That way you can line them up nicely.

    I got my GBA and games from a garage sale and they were sold in a NASCAR pencil case. So I just keep them in there.

    I don't really organize them, I just keep them (and a few DS games) in a small plastic box. They rattle around in there, so I don't even try ex. sorting them in any way.

    I use a small cloth pouch I got from Club Nintendo, which was intended for a DS or 3DS. It doesn't work very well - I basically have to dump all of them out to find anything. I wish there were a better solution.

    I use Ziploc freezer bags to hold my GB(C/A) games.

    I think the reasoning behind this is because there is no spine text. I keep all my loose carts with no spine text in containers like that.

    Many years ago, I bought a ton of Game Gear stuff from an estate sale and there were several empty cart cases. And wouldn't you know, they're just large enough to house two GBA games. I also keep said cases inside of a tin box that holds 20 of them.

    I do the same. These cases are very practical.

    I have some of these Pelican made GameStop branded cloth, zippered cases. Each one has 6 cloth panels inside that each hold four GBA carts. They're awesome, but incredibly hard to find.

    Binders! Use the higher pocket-count inserts (like the sort used for coin collections or whatever), or 9 pocket baseball or mtg card inserts like I've got here:

    ^ Nice idea!! I might copy that one.
    Did you try with Game Gear carts? They are a bit bigger it seems.

    Yeah. Binders work. My problem is, I keep my Gameboy Micro with me at all times. Aside from getting a GBA mod cart to put games on and just leave in my Micro, I have to either have a pocket full of games or a back pack. But if I bring my backpack, I'm going to have everything in it. My micro, my Vita, my 3DS, my laptop, my PSP. So at THAT point, I just squeeze the dozen or so GBA games that I play regularly in one of my many backpack pockets.

    I haven't tried Game Gear carts (don't have one), but I imagine it'd be tight, if they fit at all. There are larger-than-baseball inserts available that'd probably work, tho. I use the baseball card inserts for GB, GBA, and NGPC. Smaller pocket inserts for DS.
