Many of you remember the educational game you played as children about The Oregon Trail.
You picked your profession, bought your supplies, named the members of your wagon train, and set out on the Oregon Trail. Along the way various tragedies slowed your pace: you ran out of food, your supplies were stolen, and when you managed to take down a buffalo you could only bring back 100 pounds of meat–even though your wagon train was starving. Oh, and don’t forget your wagon train members died of anything from cholera to dysentery.
I played this game all the time at home and got so good I won more often than not. (no wonder my novel is about the Oregon Trail huh?)
Now, the game comes to life in this hilarious “movie trailer”.
Watch this and then share your memories of playing the game in the comments.
