Today’s Google Doodle celebrates the 155th anniversary of the Pony Express. It features a game that lets you be a Pony Express rider, picking up letters, switching horses, and avoiding the treacherous obstacles that faced these riders as they traveled across the U.S. in the 19th century. It is a lot of fun, especially when you fall off!
You can find the Pony Express Google Doodle archived here after April 14th.
And here is a great video on the making of the Doodle, with a little Pony Express history.
Hooray for mail-themed games!
