  1. Hmm, wonder if kids today play Oregon Trail? Doubt it. Getting across a river is a lost art.

  4. Hahaha, Oregon Trail was so amazing. Don't get dysentery!!! I'm pretty sure we had a class in elementary school dedicated to playing only Oregon Trail.

  5. When I first came to Mizzou and said I was from Oregon the only thing they knew about the state was it rained and they used to play a game called Oregon Trail (and they loved it).

  7. I loved playing that game and naming all the people in my wagon after my friends. "Sorry, Amanda, you just died of a snake bite. I couldn't sell enough bison to pay for the anti-venom and pay for the ferry river crossing."

  9. Any game that tells me I have cholera is one I am quite literally an immediate fan of.

    Wow.

  12. Loved, loved, loved Oregon Trail. It was the highlight of my week in "Computer Lab" (nka Technology). Did you ever know anyone who actually got all the way to the end? I don't think I remember anyone surviving their journey. So sad...

  13. Like Adrienne I would name the people in my wagon after real life friends. Although sometimes I would name them after people I didn't like and then secretly celebrate when they died from scurvy because I wouldn't buy any fruit. Is that wrong?

  14. this is great!! I've been a sub for an US history class this year.. I found this game online when we were talking bout the ORegon Trail.. we played it onthe smart board (after I told them this was one of my fav games as a kid in school)... they absolutely loved it.. though the graphic are horrible etc.. they had fun picking names of other memembers etc.. this is great!!

  15. I used to love Oregon Trail, but I never knew why I died of dysentery until I was much older.

  16. i used to think it was only the 6th graders who could make it to the end of the oregon trail. however,i recently discovered that it's very hard not to make it to oregon. then i realized it was because when i was 10, i thought a good use of money was to by 8 spare wagon wheels, 1 box of bullets, and spend the rest on extra socks.

  17. CAULK THE WAGON AND FLOAT!

    I love Oregon Trail. It was a computer class favorite in elementary school. A few years ago me and my boyfriend downloaded it on the internet. We named the members of our party after the Wu-Tang Clan. I think the RZA died of Scurvy. Fun times!!
