    I was going to install this game, but the permissions seem fishy.

    Why would it need permission to:

    1. Your Message - edit SMS or MMS, read SMS or MMS, receive SMS

    2. Your Personal Information - read contact data

    Thanks

    Weird... does it involve playing with friends and/or chatting during gameplay?

    Bummer... I was all excited when I saw there was an Oregon Trail game. Not now that I see it wants access to info it has zero need for. Ugh.
