It’s no secret that once you’ve graduated, the best bars are ones in which craft beer is on draft and dozens of board games wait to be played. Gone are the days of dollar shots and wet t-shirt contests. Instead, they’ve been replaced by $6 local beers and a raucous game of Cards Against Humanity. Honestly, though, what better way to unwind after a long week at the grind than to drink alcohol that actually tastes good and revisit your childhood in a new, adult way? While Cards Against Humanity always has the longest waitlist, Jenga, Scrabble, and Operation are all fantastic choices for a drunk Friday night. Those games are about to be completely surpassed because your bar board game of choice just got upgraded in a major way.
Starting yesterday, Target began selling the card game version of our favorite childhood computer game that we were somehow allowed to play in school: The Oregon Trail. That’s right, your favorite old school game just got even more old school with a pencil and paper upgrade that doesn’t require a full charge to play. For just $14.99, you can watch your friends die of starvation, dysentery, or a river that shouldn’t have been forded. That’s not all – the creators of The Oregon Trail board game have promised plenty of new and creative ways to kill off your friends, and has hinted that it may even help you get to Oregon if you do. Get your competitive juices flowing, because game nights just took on an amazing new spin we’ve all been waiting for.
