Now you can die of dysentery on the road just like 19th century pioneers with The Oregon Trail handheld game! Indeed, the computer game that many of us played in school as children in the '80s was released last year as a standalone handheld that looks like an old Apple computer. At the time of writing, you can grab one on Amazon and right here via Walmart for only $12.74, which is 58% off the list price and just a shade off an all-time low. The official description for the Oregon Trail handheld game reads:

"The classic computer game, now in a handheld size! Learn about the realities of 19th-century pioneer life on The Oregon Trail - one of the most successful computer games of all time! Choose your profession and your traveling companions, then set out on the trek from Independence, Missouri to Oregon's Willamette Valley circa 1848. Fill your covered wagon with supplies and prepare to cross rivers and mountain ranges along the way - hunting for food and trading for supplies as you go. Monitor your traveling pace, supplies and the health of your party closely to make sure everyone arrives safely and to avoid the dreaded message "You have died of dysentery." Authentic 80's graphics, sounds and game play!"
