Monopoly Here & Now and Yahtzee Blitz games get friendly with Chromecast
Your Chromecast adventures just got a bit more interesting and social. Hasbro has added Cast support to a couple of its popular games – Monopoly Here & Now and Yahtzee Blitz.
We know what many of you are wondering. Games? On the Chromecast? It may be hard to imagine, but Google’s HDMI dongle does much more than stream video and audio. It is a great presentation tool for slide shows, and it also happens to be a bit of a mobile console for basic games.
Hasbro, the all-time popular toy maker, seems to be great at keeping up with the times, something we must give them props for. Monopoly and Yahtzee join Catch Phrase, a game which has already received Chromecast support. And the cool part is you won’t be playing alone. Both Monopoly and Yahtzee support up to 4 players. The only requirements are they all have to have the game downloaded to their devices and be connected to the same Chromecast network.
I can assume both classic board games will receive a nice welcome hug by social players. Modern mobile titles are great, but they can lack that social interaction that only physical games like Monopoly and Yahtzee could accomplish in the good old days. Now we can have the modern versions in our phones and all play using the same screen!
The best part is both are free, so why don’t you download them and get ready for your next home party? You might as well give them a try.
