Famicom World


The third tournament prize was the Game & Watch Super Mario Bros. (YM-901-S), Disk-kun case, white box, and paperwork. At least 10,000 Game & Watches were given out: 6,000 to high scorers and 4,000 in a raffle.

The Game & Watch is the most expensive of the five main tournament prizes because it’s sought after by Famicom and Game & Watch collectors alike.
