Just FYI for all you fellow eighties kids out there. There is a new (well I think its new) Oregon Trail out right now, "Oregon Trail 5th edition." It actually has some semblance of graphics. Fun stuff.

I remember in junior high, playing Oregon Trail on the Apple IIe's during "computer literacy" class.

Good thing I learned about BASIC. Where would I be without it today?

can you die of dysentery or can your oxen die fording the river?

I used to shoot every stinking buffalo point blank only to have it tell me I could take 100 pounds of it with me.

SWEET.

No, seriously, they need a game that's just shooting stuff like in Oregon trail.

Just take the shooting sequences from that. I'd kill hours on it.

"Thomas" got cholera and was out for a couple days, so that slowed me down yesterday, and yes, your oxen can die trying to ford the river.

I learned about cholera toxin in medical school. It's bad !!

Did anyone else here after playing it for such a long time and getting bored with it or finding out that you were not any good at the game try to see how fast you could kill everyone for fun?

As I recall, teachers were always having to reinstall the game because people would name their head family member a cuss word and then intentionally kill them. That way, future players could snicker at their tombstone.

I'm surprised they continued to let us play.


Oh, and I do not know a single person who took the Barlow toll road.

I took the toll road but forgot what happened if you did (other than losing money.) I always hit the rocks trying to float down the Columbia River.
