    My boy (8) plays this at his school all the time. For it being an old, non-graphics rich game, he absolutely loves it.

    Sweet, just like I remember. However, Tetris is the best game ever. Played last night with my gf for an hour last night.

    I'm loving the fact kids are still playing these games..I guess I should have expected it considering it says you're from St. Paul and these games were developed by MECC.

    I'm not sure if that's why or not. It's installed on the school library's computers, and it was no more than two weeks ago that my son came home telling me how much he loves it. I grew up in the original Oregon Trail era, so I didn't even know about this game, but he showed it to me when I was at school, and it does look fun.

    I think it came out when I was in fourth grade or so. We usually played Fraction Munchers. I think they also had a Word Munchers, but I don't remember for sure?

    You can still find old-school Oregon Trail on old Apple emulators out there - we had a couple of friends who decided to see if it was Y2K-compliant by resting/rationing food until the year 2000. (It wasn't).

    There was also one in that era that involved catching different kinds of fish...anyone remember what that was called? It's bugging me.

    Edit: Nevermind...just found it. Anyone remember this?:

    Super Munchers is basically that. I've been playing "Geography Munchers" for a little bit...pretty fun. Play it on Genius level though because the other levels might not be hard enough for a grown adult.

    As far as the Oregon Trail ...go here to play online:

    I remember playing Oregon Trail, but that was in the 80s and I believe the game came out in the mid 70s sometime. I think Number Munchers came out sometime in the mid 80s or maybe 1987.

    MECC made such great games..
