The Oregon Trail Video Game Sells Out As Board Game

August 2, 2016

Children of the 80s and 90s usually got our first experience with a computer playing the game called The Oregon Trail.  The game developed in 1974 aimed to not only to introduce children to computers but to teach the realities of 19th century pioneer life on the Oregon Trail, while being delayed by broken wagon wheels and escaping dysentery, the measles, snake bite or broken bones. Now the futuristic computer game has gone nostalgic with a multi-player tabletop card version for a limited time.  Target quietly began selling The Oregon Trail card game yesterday and within two hours, it had completely sold out line.  The board games are now only available at brick and mortar stores until they're sold out.  Target has kept quiet if there are plans to make more available based on its popularity.  However if you really want to return to your childhood, Archive dot org, which host classic computer games online for you to play for free.
