Remember back in the 80s when everyone used to play Oregon Trail
on the computer? If you were like me, you'd name your party after people you didn't like, and then set your rations to "low" and your pace at "grueling", and then you'd laugh maniacally when they all died of snake bite and dysentery.
But I digress. The good people at the BBC have created a similar kind of game, and it's all about vikings. Hooray! Y'all all go and play Viking Quest
, it's fun. I challenge you to beat my score of 735. Which should be pretty easy, as I seem to have chosen the crappest port, the crappest boat, and the crappest crew possible. Although I did have a Berserker, and he kicked a lot of ass.
