A Geeky Do-It-Yourself Nintendo Switch Cartridge Case

Reading Time: 2 minutes

If you are like me, then one Nintendo Switch game is not nearly enough. So I came up with an extra geeky but do-it-yourself way to carry all of those games in style. I opted for a soft-sided case for my Nintendo Switch and I reviewed it a few weeks ago right here on GeekDad:

Review: The Waterfield Nintendo Switch Pouch

But even if you opted for a hard case that only holds the Nintendo Switch itself, you may be in a similar position of needing something to keep all of those tiny Switch game cartridges in one place. There are a lot of relatively cheap but very effective plastic cases out there, but I wanted something a little unique. So I did what many husbands out there would do… I asked my wife. I knew she had some small containers and tins, but what she pulled out for me was just too perfect not to share.

This really ended up being a perfect theme for me because I recently purchased the Namco Museum for Nintendo Switch game, which, of course, has PAC-MAN. So when my wife pulled out this PAC-MAN Cherry Ghost Sours candy tin, I knew this would make an awesome little carrying case for my Switch cartridges. All I needed to do to make this little tin work was to grab one of the dozens of microfiber cleaning cloths I had lying around the house to use as a liner–so the cartridges wouldn’t rattle around–and I had the perfect geeky Switch cartridge case (at least for me).

If PAC-MAN isn’t your thing, then there is no shortage of candy tins (Altoids and PEZ just to name a few) that I’m sure will have a theme that will suit your tastes. Do you have a do-it-yourself Nintendo Switch cartridge case idea? If so, please share in the comments section of this post.
