The Oregon Trail Card Game is a somewhat reversed conversion of the popular video game that is moving away from digital playing experiences to a tabletop version. The game offers an inclusive atmosphere for the entire family to take part in that lets players collectively find a way to survive the outdoor route-trekking experience.

The card game transitions the single player experience into a game that is geared for two to six players to join in one, and ideal for families. The premises utilizes supply cards for items such as food, water, medicine and clothing along with action cards that steer the player's progress through their trek to Beaver State.

The conversion of a video game into an offline board game speaks to consumers seeking more homespun ways to connect amongst family.
