Marion says: Oregon Trail Oregon Trail was computer game made by MECC in 1974. It was a staple activity in our computer lab in 3rd grade because, well, we lived in Oregon. Kismet!
Incidentally, if you all would like to relive my childhood, you can do so HERE!

Hee! Very authentic!

I thought they were still making Oregon Trail. At least, I'm pretty sure I heard there were updates after the Apple II version I played.

I always wanted to play this game, every seems to have fond memories of it! It seems they are still making the games since I've seen Oregon Trail 5 and 6 while looking for the first one! And... I didn't know if was for the Apple II which is probably why I didn't find a copy! :P

Purely awesome Marion! I could never figure out why you could shoot so many animals and never bring it all back to the wagon. Good luck getting a squirrel too, they were so fast!

Thanks Alisa!Remember how sometimes the game dropped you down and you were fenced in by rocks and trees, and you couldn't shoot anything? And the animals were all beyond the border, taunting you?

Maybe that was just me. ;)
