Almost everyone who made their way through an American elementary school system since the ’70s has gotten their hands on a game of Oregon Trail, which teaches kids how to plan, make choices, and be efficient while trying to get you and your companions through a 2,000 mile trek safe and healthy.

The game has always been popular, and as time has gone on newer versions continue to be made for everything from schools to cell phones and just good old online time wasting fun. Ahh, nostalgia. It can’t be beat.

For everyone who’s played a round of Oregon Trail, some exciting news has arrived. A brand new version of the game has been developed exclusively for Facebook, and will be arriving on the site February 2. It’s also been announced that a special Facebook version of another popular game is on the way as well: Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?, which arrives on February 9. Still can’t even think of that title without the Rockapella theme song for the old Carmen Sandiego game show ringing through my head.

You can see preview videos for both games by heading down below now!

  1. Did anyone else desperately want a “Throw sick member out of wagon” option when someone inevitably got ill and forced you into a slower pace?

  2. The only thing that makes me less than thrilled about this is the graphical re-do. It’s the same reason the iPhone app left me sad. It’s probably required for any NEW kids to discover the game, but the kid in me doesn’t even recognize this version.

    If there were an option for the original graphics, I’d be all over that. Luckily you CAN find that online. The internet is full of wonders. ;)

  3. I never played Oregon Trail as a kid (or ever) but Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego might be enough to finally get me to play a facebook game.
