In an article found on the internet I read this:

---
Jet Set Willy (MSX Cart and BeeCard 1985)

Why pay 50p for a cassette version of Jet Set Willy when you can pay through the nose for Hudson’s Japanese release of the same game on cartridge? For the ultimate in elitist collectibles seek out the BeeCard release, a credit card style ROM that slots into a Hudson-made adapter. Go on, we dare you.

I was wondering if anybody has ever seen or maybe owns this 'credit card style rom' cart ?

Any pictures??

In last Barcelona Users Meeting there were two Beecards adaptors with Jet Set Willy and Bomberman for selling.

They sometimes pop up at Ebay, most games from Hudsonsoft use them.
(The Beecard itself is also from Hudsonsoft) I have different games for them like a Baseball game, Star Force and of course Barnstormer. The games look like creditcards.

Do not switch them with the cartridge from Electric software which looks alike but uses different cards (as far as I know)

As you know BeeCard was later used by Hudson for the NEC PC-ENGINE - TURBOGRAFX system, renamed as Hu-Card

Anyone want to swap?
