Pack up the ox cart yet again, because The Oregon Trail is making its way to the board game market.

In The Oregon Trail Card Game, players work together to keep at least one member of the party alive during a trip from Independence, MO to the Willamette Valley in Oregon. There are three decks which include trail cards, calamity cards, and supply cards. You create you wagon party of 2-6 travelers by writing the names of the players on a whiteboard, but as they meet their demise you can flip the board to write them a personal epitaph on a tombstone. 

The game comes with:

  • 58 trail cards
  • 32 calamity cards
  • 26 supply cards
  • 1 laminated, two-sided wagon party roster
  • 1 erasable marker
  • 1 die
  • Illustrated instructions
