Chromecast Launches Games!

(Disclosure, I may receive a small referral fee when you make a purchase through links on this post.)

Google announced on their Chrome blog of the launching of family friendly games for Chromecast. With the use of your Android device, you can use it as a game controller to play family favorites such as “Monopoly”, “Scrabble”, “Connect Four”, “Simon Swipe”, and “Wheel of Fortune”. You can also dance by holding your phone acting like a sensor playing “Just Dance Now”. The phone will detect your movements and give you points based on the accuracy of your moves just like “Dance Dance Revolution (DDR)”. You can also play quizzes and answer questions using your phone as well.
