The last item from the Game Boy box for tonight is this user’s manual for a 3rd party SNES mouse from Champ. As I’ve mentioned before, I had a game copier in the 90s which meant I had a copy of Mario Paint, but no mouse. I saw one of these at Electronics Boutique or Software Etc. and picked it up. The mouse came with a mousepad that I used with my PC for a very long time. As for the game itself, I did end up making a few creations in Mario Paint, some of which I recorded on tape. Maybe one day I’ll post them here.
Googling the mouse now, it seems that it was rather obscure. “SNES Champ mouse” reveals no immediate results, though “SNES third party mouse” does show a single photo from a Nintendo forum. Considering it’s rarity, it might have fetched a nice price on eBay, but sadly I tossed it in the trash back in 2012 (during the moving phase).
That’s all for now. I’ll see if I can find a photo of the actual mouse also. Enjoy!
