Google Celebrates The Pony Express With A Fun Doodle Game …

By Fouad Bendris

Google celebrates the Wild West in its latest Google Doodle.

Every now and then Google will come up with something particularly clever—like its transformation of Google Maps into a global game of Pac-Man.

The Pony Express game has you riding on a horse collecting letters as you gallop across an obstacle-filled desert landscape, moving up and down on the screen to avoid cacti and fences.

The Pony Express’s first letter was delivered on April 14th, 1860, in a time long before email and texts. Back then, the Pony Express was the fastest game in town, with a letter traveling 1800 miles in just ten days !

Fouad Bendris’s insight:
The Pony Express may have been fast, but it was also short-lived. The mail service lasted for just 18 months, from April 1860 to October 1861 !
