Really Old Educational Games Get New Life on Facebook

Posted By on Thu, Jan 27, 2011 at 1:00 PM

While I spent an obscene amount of time playing both games on really early Apple computers in my third grade classroom (Corbett Elementary, where you at?), I'm not entirely sure Facebook versions that likely will ask the player to post tons of "requests" on their wall and pay to actually enjoy the game is exactly the comeback for the Oregon Trail and Carmen Sandiego that I hoped for. Then again, considering I've had a week-long flirtation with dozens of games on Facebook, I'll definitely see if I can save my friends from dreaded dysentery.

Possibly of interest: Minneapolis City-Pages delves into the history of the Oregon Trail.
