    It really depends on how many megs the cart is. they usually weigh the same weight as a video in its case
    kof2000 is almost twice as heavy as that though

    Metal slug - 404g
    Blazing star -422g

    Its roughly more or less depending on the chips inside for which game, also you need to add in the packing materials.
    Such as packing box, bubble wrap, foams..... they got weights too.
    And they cost money too.
    Hopes it help.

    Ta for the replies

    The dude replied to my email and says probably $20 to $25 for three games, Last Blade 2, KOF 99 and Samurai Showdown 3 which seems pretty reasonable. He said he'd pack it tonight and weigh it to find out exactly how much.

    Btw, he's 'gamesbyruss' on ebay, anyone bought from him before?

    Thats a good price for 3 carts
    If i get one lose cart from the states normal airmail its usually about 11 dollars so its best to accept his price or if he has them weighed up it might cost you more

    In Metal Slug 3 you can only play as 4 characters, KOF 96 has almost 30. Thirty characters weigh more than 4.

    You're not taking the various slugs into accounts, though. Those weight quite a lot.

    If your cart has Sharp mask roms, they are heavier than the Toshiba ones.
