Oregon Trail: Journey to Williamette Valley Board Game
The ever-popular Oregon Trail game now in a board game version! Players compete to get their oxen, wagon, supplies, and family members across the board, from Independence, MO, to the Willamette Valley. As in the popular computer game, calamities regularly arise that must be dealt with! Each turn, players overturn new trail tiles (for a different board with every play), draw a calamity, take 3 actions (including moving, hunting, buying supplies, picking up hitchhikers, or selling supplies), draw a new market price card, resolve the calamity card, and feed their families. You only have so much room in your wagon, so you must decide what's most important food, medicine, winter clothing, weapons, or wagon parts. You will have to balance your supplies and your choices with your family's health and well-being as you strive to be the player with the most money at the end of the trip. 2-4 players. ~ Megan
Its 1844: You and your family have joined a wagon train in Independence, MO that is about to head to Willamette Valley to find your fortune in the West! Players will place tiles to discover the trails, rivers, forts, and towns ahead of them that they will move through to this new land. This scenic journey would almost be perfect if it wasnt for the disease, drowning, rattlesnakes and other hazards that will plague you along the way. Youll need to hunt for food to avoid starvation, and with limited wagon space, you may need to choose between supplies and family members to keep moving along the trail. Until, eventually, you find yourself safe, in Willamette Valley. Relive your fond memories of one of the worlds most beloved computer games as you race your friends to victory in The Oregon Trail: Journey to Willamette Valley. For 2-4 players, ages 14 and up.
