Finding Number Munchers and Oregon Trail was easy but I had just about givien up hope on Word Munchers until I stumbled upon this site looking for it and came acroos it in your post. I can’t tell you how thankful I truly am to be re-united with a game I so dearly loved as a child. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!
