In 2003 Nintendo was going to release e-Reader cards based of the G&W games. (If you brought the e-Reader you would have already gotten the Manhole card bundled with it).
There was going to be three different versions of the cards.
- Classic G&W games - Color G&W games - Collectors (which uses Mario characters)
I'll admit I'm still confused if the "color" versions are just G&W with color or taken from G&W gallery series with the Mario characters instead. But the Collectors series has Mario characters so wouldn't that make that last point invalid?
I thought originally that the "Color" and/or "Collectors" versions of these games might have ended up appeared in G&W Gallery Advance, but that was released in 2002 while this is 2003.
Interesting to see them mention "Mr Game & Watch returns!"
They mention a Nintendo Power magazine talking about them as well but don't say the number (but did come out in 2003 so that narrows it down).
I thought this would be a good thing to post since, I don't think many have heard of this and these cancelled e-Reader cards aren't mentioned on NinDB (but admittedly the e-Reader was never released there).

I had and still have the issue about this. And yes, "Color" means the Game & Watch Gallery versions. Those cards up there use the G&WG artwork and if you look closely you can see a "Fire" card with what looks a colorized screenshot of the G&WG1 version (or maybe it's the G&WG4 version, I can't tell but it's doubtful these would contain GBA-quality games).

Color may refer to the GBC and they may contain Gallery 1-3 games, if the Gallery 1 Fire (in GBA resolution, it seems) screenshot is indicative of anything. Collector could have been taken from Gallery Advance, by that logic.
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
