Oregon Trail

(I’m writing this while playing the game)

I have never played Oregon Trail before. I started with five people, then about 200 miles in I tried to cross a river. We lost 162 pounds of food but 2 people drowned so the food won’t be a problem. However, I also lost my oxen and no one wants to trade with me. I believe my journey has come to an end. I think that this game is a fun way of seeing how brutal the journey west was for many people. I probably would not have survived it. Did store owners in the West overcharge for supplies because people traveling had a lack of options?
