That axle ain't gonna fix itself, Moneybags....

Do you remember "Oregon Trail"?

Of course you do. For me, killing off droves of settlers, oxen and of course game animals was a big time-waster back at Red Bridge Elementary School. And when I finally reached the Pacific coast, I could thumb my nose at the losers who chose the banker (carpenterz rule!) and basically bought a first-class ticket across the West.

How 5th-graders learned about intestinal infections.

Now you can find a close-but-not-perfect analog of this fun, educational and hyper-realistic (see graphics above) game online here. Yeah, it's kind of like "malk" is to milk, but still... better than, say, running out of food in the Rockies during the winter.
