As If We Don’t Waste Enough Time on Facebook…

29 01 2011

The classic games “Oregon Trail” and “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?” have been revamped from their pixelly 80s & 90s graphics and formatted for play on the popular social networking site, Facebook.


The fifth grader deep inside me, still angry about the plight my “family” faced crossing the great frontier, is thrilled to once again have the chance to dodge poisonous snakes, repair broken wagon wheels, and hopefully not catch the measles.

I’m also looking forward to rekindling the simple pleasure and sense of adventure that came from hunting Carmen Sandiego and her goons across the globe.  Hopefully I know as much historical and geographical trivia now as I did back in the day!

Good thing I’m graduating from college in a couple months, because I cannot imagine getting work done once these games are released by Facebook. My alliance to Bejeweled Blitz is officially wanning…
