Setting Up The Game
Insert a yellow peg into each hole on the game board. These are the Pac-Dots that Pac-Man will eat!
Assemble the board by connecting the board pieces together.
Place the Pac-Man and Ghost pawns on the board along with the Power Pellets.
Each player takes a turn playing as Pac-Man while the other players play as the Ghosts!
Playing as Pac-Man
Pac-Man gains points by completing section of the maze, eating fruits, and eating ghosts.
On his turn Pac-Man rolls three dice, adds up their value and moves that number of spaces.
As Pac-Man moves over Pac-Dots he pushes them down with his base making the classic arcade sound!
Playing as the Ghosts
On the Ghosts' turn, they flip over a card from the ghost deck.
This card tells the Ghosts how many spaces they can move and their turn order.
Ghosts may talk and plan their moves together in order to try and trap Pac-Man!
Try and catch Pac-Man in order to end his turn!
Fruit Cards and Eating Ghosts
If a fruit card is drawn, place a fruit on Pac-Man's starting space. Pac-Man can get bonus points by eating the fruit without getting caught.
When Pac-Man eats a large Power Pellet, he gets to roll three more dice and has a chance to eat the ghosts.
If a ghost is eaten, they are replaced with a pair of Ghost eyes and must go back to their start to respawn!
Scoring Points and Winning the Game!
For each section of the maze Pac-Man completes he gets 800 points.
Fruits are worth 100, 200, and 500 points.
Each ghost Pac-Man eats is worth 200 points.
If Pac-Man can clear all of the dots on the board, the board is reset and level 2 Ghost cards are added to the deck. Once everyone has had a chance to play as Pac-Man, the player with the highest score wins! A high score note pad is included with the game to keep track of everyone's scores!

Pac-Man and Ghost Tips and Strategies
Remember that ghosts are a team! Try and work together without blocking each other.
Make sure you move your ghost not just where Pac-Man is but where he is going!
Pac-Man only gets points for eating all the pegs in a quadrant. Make sure you finish each section!
Use your Power Pellets wisely, you only have 4 to work with.
