The Oregon Trail Wii Game Giveaway (US & Can)

Title: The Oregon Trail: 40th Anniversary Edition

The Oregon Trail is now  available for Wii and Nintendo 3DS thanks to RedWagon Games and DoubleTap Games.

About the Game:

Set in the mid-1800s, The Oregon Trail lets players assume the role of a wagon pioneer leader guiding a party of settlers westward across 2,000 miles of winding, rough terrain from Independence, Missouri, to Oregon City on the Oregon Trail. The classic game has now been modernized for all ages on Wii™ and Nintendo 3DS™ and is part of the frenzy of nostalgia over the game, which has yielded everything from band tour promotions (“Fall Out Boy Trail”) to humorous references on popular websites (“Digg has broken an axle”). Since 1971, more than 65 million copies of the highly popular game have been sold. The single-player game retraces the historical journey, challenging the gamer to survive and prosper through four unique storylines with three different time periods. Plan and stock up for the dangerous trip, complete a variety of timed challenges including hunting and fishing, and unlock special items along the way. The Oregon Trail on Wii and Nintendo 3DS is the first version of the game where players can drive the wagon on the trail.

The Oregon Trail was created in 1971 by three student teachers at Carleton College in Northfield, Minn., and immediately became popular throughout Minneapolis public schools. Since that time, the game has gone through a number of editions on a variety of platforms, including Apple II, Macintosh, DOS, Windows and iPhone/iPod Touch. Today, The Oregon Trail legacy is nurtured by The Learning Company, a division of global education leader Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
