Do you remember back in school when you would get on the computers and play Oregon Trail?

I am so stoked I missed this game so much and tonight I found a place to play it for free

I absolutely LOVED playing this game, hubby is counting down the minutes til he gets home so he can play as well lol

  • Honey, I must be old! We never had computers in school. lol. We had typewriters and a microfische. I do remember my nephew playing on my comp like 7 years ago and getting a kick out of Yukon Trail and that he played it in elementary school.

  • Might just depend on the school. I'm 37 and we had Oregon Trail in grade school.

  • I am 32 and we had it in elementary school... wasn't until Jr High that I could get near a computer easily (comp. pass and study halls) to play it :) Ah yes, the good old Apple IIe's... and don't forget to "ground yourself" before you touch the computer.....
