Are you a child of the 80’s?

The Oregon Trail was popular game in American elementary school students from the mid 1980s to early 1990s.  Many students in the United States and Canada had access to the game at school.  The game was inspired by the real-life Oregon Trail and was designed to teach school children about the realities of 19th century pioneer life on the trail. The player assumes the role of a wagon leader guiding his party of settlers from Independence, Missouri, to Oregon’s Willamette Valley by way of the Oregon Trail via a Conestoga wagon in 1848. The game was originally released in floppy disk format (actually many floppy disks if I remember right).  Well I was recently told about this awesome trailer that I though you children of the 80’s (and early 90’s) would like.  Enjoy!!

  1. Man that was clever. I miss that game…in fact I still play it on Facebook. There is a link to it. I actually am able to play pretty well now but back in the day everyone died on who rode in my wagon. Not a pretty thing to remember. Oh all the times my brother was bit by snake was to many to count!
