The Oregon Trail is Back, Sort Of

If you’re like me, you enjoy a good resource management/strategy game every once in a while. If you’re REALLY like me, these were your favorite games growing up. Now, I wasn’t quite old enough to grow up with the first release version (or the 2nd, 3rd, 4th… just the 5th), but I did grow up to really appreciate the concept of the game overall from a very young age.
