I'm not sure if I'd use them a ton. Playing Barker Bill's Trick Shooting and Point Blank would be fun, but for how long?

If I hadn't just bought a Fire Stick 4K, a new Chromecast would be a no-brainer. I'd like to get a Shield for the living room and Chromecasts for any other TVs.

$1.50 per foam piece before shipping, what a deal!

A retro bargain.

Or just cut up the foam you get in a TV box or other packaging.

How dare you consider having our precious NES games rest on some inferior used foam! Only the pillowiest pristine foam will do!

I know one of my NES games I got a few years ago has some dodgy foam in it that I cut from some packaging. Not an expensive game though, it might have been Wrath Of The Black Manta.

I also want to point out I could probably 3D print about a dozen of those in a much more durable plastic for about $1.50 in filament.
