I loved that game. Every now and then I search for a free version on the net and come up empty like LHMark in a bar full of straight single chicks. I might have to drop 10 bucks one day and pick it up.

Honey, you are waaaay too young to remember the original Oregon Trail, available on the Apple computers we had in the mid-late 1980's. Computer class was so fun on Fridays, as that was Oregon Trail day!

I don't think he is too young at all, I'm his age, and I know exactly what he is talking about, and it sounds the same as to what you are describing. Don't tell people there way too young if you are only 10-12 years older the they are. And why did you call him honey  confused

Nice blast from the past! I, too, have contemplated the bustedtees.com shirt just to see what reaction I get from other 80's geeks.

If you search for Apple II emulators and software you can get Oregon Trail, plus pretty much any other MECC classic as well. Before my computer got sick I had it.

I'll google around and see if I can't find anything.

I loved that game!! We had it on computers when i was in elementry school. In 4th grade my teacher did an entire unit on the Oregon Trail, and we put on a pageant about it. It was the cool thing the 4th graders did.

That game was a blast, though. I miss it. Wish they could make it free for PC. I'd get re-hooked on it for sure.

I don't know what you guys are talking about but I've been to the head of the Oregon and Santa Fe trails at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas. The ground is still cut where they brought the wagons across the river.

Does that count?

Loved that 'on the trail' music that played when the wagons were rolling. The hunting was pretty good. First time I suvived the trip was the first time I took the name of someone I knew to have survived the trip - Eugene Skinner. Got so I'd survive the trip pretty regularly, but my women all died! Now honestly, what is the point of spending five months to get to Oregon if there aren't going to be any women there?

My kids actually played it for credit in history class. Tell you a lot about our public schools!

Oh man, those IIe's were great. We usually played Oregon Trail twice per week, had typing lessons once per week, and had random other games (spelling or hot dog stand) the other two days. At least until 4th or 5th grade when they started having us spend more time on typing and increasing our keyboard skills. The computer lab in our school was a windowless, white walled room with some of the old, yellow stains on the ceilings and upper walls. The lighting was bad, the teacher was mean and demanding, the desks creaked, and the air conditioner made ghostly noises that scared the dickens out of us. Cold, white, speckled tile floors helped make it a room that appeared extremely unwelcoming and rigid. But The Oregon Trail solved all problems  Silly

You can find Oregon Trail and a couple of the offshoots on GameTap, which is the online gaming site Time-Warner has started. Lots of classic Atari, Commodore 64, arcade, DOS, Sega, and Windows games you can play online. They offer a free trial period, and I liked the site so much (especially for the old Atari and arcade games) that I kept my subscription ($9.95/month). They recently added Oregon Trail, and I found myself playing it for a couple of hours.
