Celebrate Google 15th Birthday with Piñata Game & Easter Egg

Today marks the 15th birthday of the world’s most popular search engine Google. It all started fifteen years ago, in a small garage in Menlo Park, California. Two Ph.D. students from Stanford decided to develop a better search engine. The rest is history.

Every year, Google celebrates its birthday with a special doodle. This year, they created an interactive Google doodle piñata game. To play the game, just head over to Google. Click on the arrow or play button to start the game. The objective is to have as many candies fall out of the piñata within 10 tries. Press/hit the spacebar to take a swipe at the piñata.
