Played The Oregon Trail em> in academy? The classic classroom territory tournament has had a modern era makeover.
An ambitious promotional implement from Travel Oregon, a “semi-independent” agency created by the Oregon Legislature, Travel Oregon: The Game is an homage to the educational staple, allowing you to explore all seven regions of the state.
The game isn’t produced by the original squad, according to Munchies , but it got the same 8-bit ogle and addictive sort. The game’s destination, as lore stipulates, is to keep morale high, while toy different activities — or you’ll be writing tombstones.
You can play the game in your browser, and be sure to have something else be prepared to bring up on screen when your boss walks past.

You can also lead hunting at Anthony Lakes, build a wizard snowman with a backstory on the way to Painted Hills, croak sparkler skating at Three Sisters, and get hollered at for running your own gas( not allowed in Oregon, parties ).
There’s an impressive throwback to 1991 Microsoft competition SkiFree , when you’re skiing in Trillium Lake/ Mt. Hood.
The entire tournament inspires you to book a trip-up to Oregon, of course, but with this level of detail and throwbackery, we’re all for it.
