I remember playing this game back in 1990 while I was in the sixth grade. I used to love going to the computer lab with my class each week, just so we could play The Oregon Trail on those Old School Apple computers. Each of us were so enthralled by the game, it was the only time that an instructor didn't have to tell us to be quiet. Kids today (Millenials) will never understand how fun and educational The Oregon Trail was for our generation. Sadly, the main reasons they use computers is to connect on Social Media (which has led to Cyber Bullying),
Hacking/Stealing personal information, and other nonsense. Only Xennials can comprehend how Awesome this game is, was and always will be! We grew up during a time when life was simple, and technology had not overstepped it's boundaries by consuming the entire world, and turning everyone into illiterate zombies that can't function without an Iphone in their hand.

Every public school in America had a copy of this back in the day, even the tiny school in rural Idaho I grew up in. Many younger people might find it boring, and wonder what we see in it. In all honesty, with the nostalgia glasses off it might not seem like much, but dagnabit yunguns it was fun!

Why are you all using JUST DOSbox? Use the far superior LaunchBox *(Which includes DOSbox and many more emulators) that does a lot of this behind the scenes work for you? I got the newest version *(4.6 as of this typing) and it works like a dream for me.

Windows 7? You'll need DOSBox to run any DOS-based games on Windows 7. That, or find an old 286/386.

WoW !!! I was in 6th/7th grade when this game came out been looking for a few yrs for a copy. Always loved coming upon a river and deciding how to handle it. A lot of times would forge the rivers but not always the wise way to go. Current would usually tip you over and cost you supplies. LOL Oh well....
