If you’re on the prowl for some fast food, you might want to consider picking up a Wendy’s Kid’s Meal with your side of diabetes type 2. The fast food chain has teamed up with Namco Bandai to include one of five PAC-MAN board games with each purchase.

According to a press release from Namco Bandai, the PAC-MAN promotion is meant to help parents and kids pause, play, and spend some “quality time with the whole family.” The PAC-MAN games will be available at all participating Wendy’s stores in the United States and Canada from now until April 10.

Above: PAC-MAN Bowling has you using a wind-up PAC-MAN to knock down ghosts and fruits. Fruits are good for you, remember?

Above: PAC-MAN Dash has you using a slightly different wind-up PAC-MAN who may or may not knock down the included ghosts. Sounds just like the last one, only with fewer rules

Above: PAC-Man Hide & Seek. Where’s PAC-MAN? Try looking in the greasy paper Wendy’s bag in the trash

Above: PAC-MAN Maze. Roll the die and gobble up the fruits while avoiding ghosts. It’s just like PAC-MAN, only you have to do everything manually

Above: PAC-MAN Tag. Good, simple running around, made relevant to retro gaming interests with these plastic tags
