Geeks with Oregon Trail
December 20th, 2008

Posted by Jeremy

Hey folks, just a quick note that the guys over at Geeks With Issues are doing a 24-hour run of Oregon Trail TODAY that seems . . . vaguely familiar. It’s called the Battle Against Dysentery, and while their game is obviously way more interesting than ours, I’m giving them major props for supporting the kids and testing their gaming marathon muscle. Also, we here at LRR are NOT fans of dysentery.

Check out their webcast, and toss a few dollars their way if you can! If you were late to the Desert Bus party and really wanted to be involved, this could be your chance to contribute! They may even name a wagoneer after you :).


  1. Fun Fact: my math teacher mr. dillenberger invented the original text-based oregon trail back in 1971. epic, no?

  5. Sadly, the Battle Against Dysentery has ended, so the live feed has retired for the time being. It’s permanent home is here: where it will continue to run old episodes of Geeks with Issues until our next live event.
