A little diversion

To celebrate the 155th anniversary of the Pony Express, Google came up with a game as its celebratory doodle. I'd have posted this last week, but I was too busy trying to get the pony to stop being totally unimpressed by my efforts (all that was lacking was eye-rolling).... My reflexes (and the number of letters safely delivered) have improved, though, and we've moved past the pony applauding and into jumping up and down territory. My best score to date (and that only once) is 75 letters. Top score is apparently 100 letters.

Just a word of warning if you play this at work -- turn the sound down on your computer, or people are going to want to know where that sound of galloping is coming from. :-)

Have fun!

You're welcome! Think of it as a way to improve your reflexes and motor skills. :-)

That is adorable. And also really hard. I've just tried it for the first time and my score was abysmal. But I'm not giving up. :)

I think I started out with a score in the low 20s. Mostly now I'm in the mid 50s. That 75 was a fluke. Maybe if I had a faster computer (or faster fingers).... :-)

My first score was 19, and my highest as for yesterday was 49. But I just got back from work and intend to play a few times today, too. I wish for faster fingers, too. :)
