AMERICAN Pre-Occupation With Oregon Trail Deluxe ...!!! We have quite a laugh at you CHAPS here across THE POND, how you pat each other on the back at every opportunity!! ... I was Captain of the infamous OXFORD UNIVERSITY FENCING TEAM! A gentleman′s sport which takes brains as well as brawn. I was Lightweight Amateur Champion that year. Unfortunately, while on a book signing tour I injured my wrist and was unable to continue or pursue a professional career. I subsequently entered the NOTTINGHAM CUP Rose GARDENING Championships and placed second, which was quite the coup for a novice. If any of you are ever lucky enough to take a guided bus tour of OXFORD UNIVERSITY, go to the GREAT HALL and look up my vast accomplishments. My award winning roses still adorn the entrance way. I was able to parlay my Fencing fame into my current Asst. Managerial position in one of the finest men′s clothing stores in all of London. I will also have you know that i give PRUNING SEMINARS in the English countryside on weekends. Goes to show you Yankee WAGS, hard work and perseverance (and picking up a book once in awhile) do indeed pay off then!

My experiences with the variety of versions The Oregon Trail have always been relatively positive. You can finish a playthrough in about 30 minutes and there’s enough variety in here to try a few different approaches. It’s also packed with a load of information about the real life trail and the various stops you encounter – not that I bothered reading any of it. If any of you try it and make the trip without losing a single person, then bravo! Send me a screenshot in the comments so I can award you with a fictional trophy.
