"Thrice the brinded cat hath mew'd. Thrice and once, the hedge-pig whin'd. Harpier cries:—'tis time! 'tis time!"
Round the Google Doodle go; to waste our work hours this All Hallow's Eve! The latest devilishly addictive game from the search engine monster beckons us to assist a green animated witch casting spells at her cauldron.
Never fear! This solo Weird Sister isn't working with eye of newt, toe of frog, wool of bat or tongue of dog —the tools she and her siblings use when meddling in the fate of Shakespeare's Macbeth. No, four more mainstream ingredients levitate for our convenience — skull, bone, apple and potion bottle. Use your cursor to cast them into the pot to summon games six.
That's six different mini games — you get a new one depending on the order you combine the ingredients, each of which we leave you to discover on your own. No spoilers on this day!
OK, here are some hints: Zombies, ghosts and Things That Go Bump in the Night.
If you find this Google Doodle doesn't occupy enough of your day, check out the Google Doodle homepage to discover those of Halloweens past.
