My friend Dave took a photo of this vintage 1940's Poison the Rat arcade game recently at a vintage toy show..

Looks like fun!

The typical selling price on one of these is a pretty big range depending on its time of sale. I have seen them fetch as little as $4000 in an auction up to the first time I tried to acquire one the price blew by my affordable range and kept going to an incredible $10,000. There is a more scarce version of the same table top arcade game with an image of a Japanese figure that usually sells for a little more than the Hitler version. They are both titled Posion the Rat and it operations by turning the dial on the side moving a simulated pill along ridges on the face of the figure evetually into the mouth of the figure to Poison the Rat.
