Random Topics - Oregon Trail, The

The Oregon Trail is a simulation game produced by Mecc. The first version was released in 1974, and subsequent versions have been released over the years. The premise is that you and your party prepare to migrate from Indepence, Missouri to the Willamette Valley in Oregon during the mid to late 1800's. Along the way, you and your fellow settlers may fall victim to disease, or wind up injured or killed in accidents while crossing rivers. You could also hunt animals for food, including bison, bear, rabbits, and squirrels. Spinoffs include The Amazon Trail and The Yukon Trail.

1 I remember playing this game in junior high in the late 70s/early 80s ... You had to sign up for time on the school library's computer terminal (connected to a mainframe), convince the librarian and/or teacher that you really were caught up on all your work and had time to play games, play the game on the terminal's hard-copy dot-matrix printer interface, and then hope you could finish before your time was up. Cool game, and still rocks for the nostalgia value alone. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on October 23, 2013, 8:27 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 When I was in school, this was almost a required game to play if you could get to a computer. Never has boned, never will bone. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on January 16, 2012, 6:00 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I loved this game. It was educational and fun! I liked the versions where you could write on the graves. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on May 15, 2010, 9:22 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 LOL! Homer/Raphael has typhoid fever. But really, what's so wrong about naming them after cartoon characters? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 3, 2010, 12:40 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 My third grade teacher didn't take well to my classmates naming party members after Ninja Turtles and Simpson characters and told us we couldn't play this game anymore. Thank God this game could be played on a PC with a CGA monitor at my house. -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on May 2, 2010, 11:35 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Awww, great game! I remember growing up with this on the old school Macintosh in the early 90's! Wish it were still here today (along with StuntCopter and other Mac classics...well, there is "Kid Pix" which is another favorite from the good ol' days...) -- Submitted By: (SVN) on August 28, 2009, 6:35 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

8 Is it me, or does anyone else notice that your party is more likely to die if they're named after family members? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 1, 2009, 10:16 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Great game. I have it on my iPhone. Of course, I was the only one who made it to Oregon, as my family died of dysentery and cholera. -- Submitted By: (ScottyB) on July 31, 2009, 7:28 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
