A Game Pak is a cartridge which is inserted into the Cartridge Slot on the Control Deck.

Super Famicom game paks have a slightly more rounded design from Super Nintendo game paks.

Game Paks which contain a Super FX chip should not be used with the Multi Player 5 as this would draw too much current.[1]

The colored bar at the top of the label has the following meaning: [2][3]

Color Meaning
Red Published by Nintendo
Gold Player's Choice - 1 million copies sold
