Which version of The Oregon Trail is this?



  • When my family got our first computer (in 1997) we got a copy of The Oregon Trail and became something of a family meme. Now, I'm trying to find out which version we had. The list below from Wikipedia shows these were (are) the different version, sans mobile and facebook:

    • 1981 to 1985 The Oregon Trail (Apple II)
    • 1992 The Oregon Trail Deluxe (MS-DOS).
    • 1993-96 The Oregon Trail Ver 1.2 (Windows).
    • 1996 The Oregon Trail II (Windows).
    • 1997 The Oregon Trail 3rd Edition (Windows).
    • 2001 The Oregon Trail 4th Edition (Windows).
    • The Oregon Trail 5th Edition (Windows).

    This is an image of the start menu as I remember it:

    And this is the theme tune (not sure if it was different depending on version).



  • This is the 1992 MS-DOS version.

    Here's another screenshot of the game:
