Beginning Oct. 17 through mid-November, Chick-fil-A restaurants around the U.S. are giving away an interactive Adventures in Odyssey CD-ROM free with every Chick-fil-A Kid's Meal.

Also included on the CD-ROMs, which can be enjoyed on any Windows or Macintosh computer, is a lite version of Digital Praise's PC game Adventures in Odyssey and the Treasure of the Incas, along with songs and a variety of interactive activities.
For seventeen years, the award-winning Adventures in Odyssey radio program has presented exciting entertainment, along with important moral and biblical principles, to kids throughout North America and around the world.

Episodes range from comedy to suspense, romance to mystery. Don't miss this CFA exam review.
Chick-fil-A's CD-ROM series, entitled "Focus on the Family Presents a Special Chick-fil-A Adventures in Odyssey," features five unique disks in all. Adventures in Odyssey and the Treasure of the Incas, the arcade-style game found on each CD-ROM, involves Eugene's parents who discover a treasure during a South American archeological expedition. Eugene, Connie and Whit must solve the mystery of the treasure, ultimately discovering that trust is the most important element in their solution.
Each lite version of Treasure of the Incas features three different "worlds" from the original game. Also featured on the disks is a delightful and original song from "Eugene Sings," the new music CD from Will Ryan, the radio voice of Eugene.
In addition to being just plain fun, these CDs address values such as friendship, honesty and courage. "We hope these topics will help encourage interaction among children and their families," said Angela Savage, who manages Chick-fil-A's Kid's Meal Program.
"Adventures in Odyssey is all about the joys of adventure and the joys of learning about families and each other," said Tom Bean, president and CEO of Digital Praise. "Our creative team at Digital Praise is excited to bring these fun, stimulating entertainment CD-ROMs to millions of kids through our relationships with Focus on the Family and Chick-fil-A."
