‘Oregon Trail’ Is Now A Card Game You Can Play With The Entire Family

Oregon Trail is making it's way from the computer to the table. See when and where you can buy it.

I’m fairly certain I’ve never met a person who didn’t play “Oregon Trail” on school computers growing up. Because, at least since computers in schools became a thing, that’s what everyone did.

You loaded up on food, water and other supplies and made the great trek from Missouri to Oregon via your school computer lab. Then, you watched as your family members and fellow travelers passed away from lack of food, disease, etc. That’s just what you did. And you loved every second of it.

Well now, according to Mental Floss, the game is leaving computer screens and coming into your home in the form of cards. That’s right. Thanks to the Pressman Toy Company, you and your family can now sit around and play a game to see who will live to see Oregon. I never thought I’d live to see the day.

Trust me, this going to be fun!

Polygon reports that the two to six player card game will could hit Target stores as early as August 1. So, get ready for a game night in the near future!
