Description

As a covered wagon party of pioneers, you head out west from Independence, Missouri to the Willamette River and valley in Oregon. You first must stock up on provisions, and then, while traveling, make decisions such as when to rest, how much food to eat, etc. The Oregon Trail incorporates simulation elements and planning ahead, along with discovery and adventure, as well as mini-game-like activities (hunting and floating down the Dalles River).

Trivia

1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die

The Oregon Trail appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by Octopus Books (ISBN 978-184403-681-3).

The book's summary (p.22): The Oregon Trail has seen countless ports and remakes since its 1971 debut, but the canonical version is probably the 1985 version for Apple II computers. It's this edition, with color graphics that were remarkably detailed for the time, that most players remember as their first encounter with that strange beast known as "edutainment".

Young Sheldon

The game can be seen in two episodes of the Big Bang Theory prequel TV series Young Sheldon, being played and discussed by both Sheldon and his twin sister Missy.
