The best Game Boy cartridge case mod

August 8th, 2006 by Tommy Gun

Okay, let’s be realistic here — we’ve grown up. We all have fond memories of playing bulky gray Game Boys when we were supposed to be doing homework, or getting that sexy new Game Boy Pocket in the killer ice blue limited edition color. Maybe you still play it, maybe you sold it off when you got a GBA, or maybe it’s collecting dust in some drawer. But chances are, you still have some Game Boy cartridge cases lying around somewhere. So what are we to do with all those old cases?

I’ve been doing this for a while, so I thought I’d share it with you since I find it’s a handy little trick. This is a bit complicated, so I’ve provided step-by-step instructions.

Tools and supplies needed:

  • Safety Goggles
  • Original Game Boy cartridge case
  • At least one (unopened) condom, for testing purposes

Step 1: Put condom in case (see figure 1).

Congratulations! You’re finished! If you’re the skilled and ambitious type, you may want to go a step further to really give it some zing!

Step 2: (Optional) Apply tape or other decorations to the outside (see figure 2).

Figure 2.

This way it’s more discreet, since Game Boy cases are clear. This mod is useful since you’re not supposed to keep condoms in your wallet because they can weaken. You also don’t want to just throw them in a backpack or other bag because they might get punctured. Now you don’t have to worry about them getting damaged. Also, if some nosy person goes through your bag, all they’ll see is some plastic case instead of a bunch of condoms. Just remember to still make sure they’re stored in a cool, dry place.

Now go out and prove to the world that gamers do get laid!

Update: This was mentioned in NGamer magazine!

    OK… I’ll use that when I’m old enough to get laid but what ideas do you have for a 13 year old boy?

  3. Random Modder says:

    dude i made a hip montable version, i think this is the most amazing idea since the Gameman

  4. Old Gameboy Fan says:

    That is simply brilliant. I’ve been looking for a hard case for months and i just can’t find one that’s the right size. This is a magnificent idea that I’ll have to start using. Thanks

    no. wrong. “gamers” are pale, pathetic, useless excuse for human beings who need to collectively go play outside like normal children. And they don’t get laid. or at least not by women who are attractive in any way.

  6. Rob says:

    Ted, your a homo and I bet you haven’t gotten laid years. Your mad at the idea of gamers getting more pussy than you because your probably a jock whose girlfriends can never get past your undersized dick.

    Neat idea. Power to da playerz

    Rob… you’re the kind of guy that my little brother is. He’s 14 years old, and shits himself explicitly ever fuckin day. dont forget about the piss. Now he’s a WOW kinda kid and whatever. I on the other hand play all oldschool and gta and i beat all the sonic games up to dreamcast, and i beat every mario game. and I love katamari(haha).I love katamari cuz it gets me some action. I sat in a room last summer and got some every day all day cuz of We love Katamari. You can get however much action you want, you just gotta find the right way to do it. Ive been doing it for years. check it. ill write a book for you kinda guys, okay? $4.99 for pdf. $14.99 for a book.

  11. Ramikin says:

    Hey Ted? I’m a girl and I play games. I would also much prefer doing the dirty snoo snoo with some socially awkward gamer nerd than some cocky jock fucktard like you. In other words; STOP TROLLING FAGGOT. GO ENJOY YOUR COMMUNAL SHOWERS.

    *BEWARE* Game Boy cartridge cases will not fit all types of condoms… Be warned!

    I recently started rolling cigarettes, but didn’t have a case for them. I rummaged through a drawer, came across one of these, and it’s worked out pretty well.

    I’m not sure how I feel about cigarettes and condoms being so closely associated with my childhood, though.
