Google celebrates its 19th birthday.

What good is a birthday without fun and games?

That's apparently the thinking at Google, which on Wednesday celebrates its 19th birthday in numeric symmetry. The search giant has pulled together some of its most memorable interactive doodles from the past 19 years and presented them to you in a carnival prize wheel.

By spinning the wheel, you can relive some of the more entertaining interactive doodles of the past two decades, including a musical puzzle that celebrated Ludwig van Beethoven's 245th birthday, a fully functional version of the iconic '80s video game Pac-Man, and last year's Halloween doodle, which scared up an adorable black cat as she tries to save her school of magic from sinister spirits.

Or get ready to get creative. Perhaps the wheel will stop at the selection for filmmaker and abstract animator Oskar Fischinger, which lets you compose music by selecting dots on an 11x16 grid.

If you don't find something that appeals to you, try out Google's new snake game, which is harder and more fun than it initially appears.
