I didn't mention it, but I did get one mouse in the box, too.

The IIgs has ADB ports, yes? Why would you want an old mouse card

I got this one because, long ago, I wrote commercial software that
*supported* the mouse card (my portion included reading the mouse
and scrolling a digit under the disk icon to let the player load/save
one of ten game files). We paid full retail price for the card
and mouse - $80 for the mouse and $250 for the card, IIRC, in 1984.

One of the screens for our "Micro Mother Goose" product was "London
BridgeOut" - a breakout clone. Besides playing Bolo and a few other
games, we programmers used to take our own games for a ride now and
then - the mouse gave us a *huge* score boost over the arrow keys.
