  • Publication number: 20120267853
    Abstract: The Fast Food Frenzy board game concept is a race whereby players move along roadways (a series of plural spaces) to collect franchise items from franchise locations around the board. Franchise Items are obtained when players land on franchise spaces. The board's roadways may replicate actual cities or be fictitious. Token/vehicles represent players. Players have unique attributes subject to Information Drawing cards. Information Drawing Cards, as well as rolling dice, using a spinner, and/or directives provided in the spaces of the roadways direct player movement. The winner is the first player to return to a finishing place with a complete set of franchise items. A Players handbook provides information on how to play.
