Doktor A, an artist and sculptor, has handcrafted this Pac Man game, the Pac Gentleman. He writes:

When this game was first released in 1880 it was so hugely popular in taverns and inns that the bank of England was forced to mint more threepenny bits to keep up with demand. The game was created by messrs Nam & Nam and Co. as a novelty pastime for the masses. Outdoing the previous top public house game of Shove Ha’penny.

I love the mustaches on the ghosts. – [via] Link.
