Y'all have probably seen the colorful Google logo on the search-engine's home page. Do you know that it actually changes and sheds its simple look for something more creative? It does and, depending on the day or if there's something big going on or being celebrated, it can even be playable.
Yes, playable, as in you can rack up a high score and show your mad keyboard skills. Proof? Look no further than our 8 Google logo aka Google Doodle picks that are downright interactive, enough to help shoo all that online boredom away.
Check them out below and say adios amigo to productivity for a short while. Enjoy!

In celebration of: The 112 birthday (whoa!) of Frank Zamboni, the inventor of the Zamboni ice resurfacer, which cleans and smoothens skating rinks around the world.
How to play: Using your mouse or directional keys, control a Zamboni and clean the tracks left by a skater to gather points. Be careful though as there are obstacles (and bonuses) that can ruin your play and remember to keep a watch on your fuel meter.

In celebration of: This year's Chinese New Year
How to play: If you know how to play the 3310 version of Snake (which we bet you do), you'll have no probs with this. For the rest, well, just let the red snake eat the food and not itself using the arrow keys. Sounds easy enough, right?
