Back on the Oregon Trail

Did you – or your kids – learn computer skills playing the Oregon Trail? The video game that overflowed with gruesome 19th century ways to die?

Well, “the back to the future” trend is alive and well: a new version, based on the classic from 1971, is back. But for this go-round, the game is sold exclusively at Target.

Some things haven’t changed: you can still die from dysentery, typhoid or snake bites before completing the journey.

Comforting.
