I’m Going to Shoot So Many Buffalo Playing This Oregon Trail Card Game

Redditor dwboso made an amazing discovery at a Target store—or at least it’s amazing if you grew up playing computer games during the ‘70s and ‘80s and 90’s. Pressman Toys has created a card game version of the dysentery-plagued classic The Oregon Trail that includes all the terrible diseases, maladies, and calamities that wiped out your pioneer family time after time.

Based on the computer game that dates all the way back to 1971 (say what?) the card game version comes with trail cards, calamity cards, supply cards, and a dry-erase board full of tombstones so you can mark down which players have died. Although, it would probably be easier to keep tabs on those who are still alive.

There are more photos of the card game over on Imgur. The game is apparently a Target exclusive and has only been made available at a limited number of stores for the time being. Pressman Toys does list the game on its website, so this isn’t a prank, but you might have to wait a few months for it to be available nationwide.
