It also says that the contest was opened from October 30th,1987 to December 15th,1987. The winning prize came in a special box with instructions and a letter addressed to the lucky winner. The game itself came in a yellow plastic case in the shape of Diskun, the official Nintendo's DiskCard mascot at the time.
