Doodle Snow games alongside the PyeongChang Winter Olympics continue and the day 11 illustrates a bug and its efforts to outrun a snowball. The bug wins in the end though, and the snowball’s what helps it. It’s interesting to see how all the doodles, which are a part of the entire series of snow games, come with a tiny hidden message of their own.

Yesterday, Google brought in the classic tale of Hare and the Tortoise into the mix. The doodle showed the years-old rivals in a cross-country skiing race. Google described them as “Hare, game for anything and doesn’t cotton to crowds; and Tortoise, a veteran of these games for 188 years”. But this little tale came with a twist, and we saw the Hare carrying the Tortoise on his head, and win the race together!

The doodle games series were started by Google to celebrate the two weeks of PyeongChang Winter Olympics 2018. This is the first time ever that South Korea is hosting the Winter Olympics, which started on February 9, and is scheduled to go on till February 25.

The Olympics Winter Games will see more than 2,000 athletes representing 92 countries at 102 events across 15 sports like skiing, skating, luge, ski jumping, ice hockey, snowboarding among other games.
