Several other variants of the board also exist, which all predate the 60-in-1 version. The earliest of these is ''Mini Game Center'', which only features ''Ms. Pac-Man'', ''Galaga'', and ''Frogger''. Very few cabinets have surfaced, but it is rumored that the games were slightly hacked to avoid copyright infringement (ex: ''Galaga'' being renamed to ''Gallag'').

Some time after this, a new circuit board titled ''My Classics'' was released. The game list would be customized by the purchaser (from a choice of 39 games), and turned into a 4-in-1 or a 9-in-1 depending on the amount of games.<ref>https://forums.arcade-museum.com/archive/index.php/t-11093.html</ref> Later, a board with all 39 games included was released called ''Game Never Over''. A 48-in-1 known as ''Happy Hours'' was released after that, with the iCade 60-in-1 following as the final variant. No games were removed in any future variations; more were just added at the end of the game list.

It is difficult to document other versions of the iCade, as games can be removed from the menu on the 60-in-1 via settings; as such, some "unique" game lists may just be one-of-a-kind setups. At least two other variants are confirmed to have been sold; ''Happy Hours'' (48-in-1) and ''Game Never Over'' (39-in-1).
   
All of these multicades were most likely developed by Taiwanese company Hsin Pao Hang Enterprise Co., Ltd. [https://web.archive.org/web/20090615173443/http://homepage3.seed.net.tw/web@1/hsinpao/multi_games.htm Their website] is the earliest known mention of them, and they were the only place to ever sell the customized 4 and 9-in-1 boards, which implies they had a strong connection to their production.
