Cardcast Flings Multiplayer Card Games to Chromecast

While it’s a bit of a stretch to call Chromecast a game console, Google’s $35 streaming stick now sports a sizable library of playable apps. One of the most logical to come along is Cardcast, a deck-casting application that allows you to cast created and downloaded card deck from your Android devices to a synced Chromecast.

The app couldn’t be more simple. To start, up to ten players can connect to a single Chromecast for playing a game. A respectable library of popular decks, among them Cards Against Humanity and Apples to Apples, are available for download through the Cardcast website. For those unfamiliar with how those games play, a single “judge” player reads out a topic or subject card, then the rest of the players submit answer or related cards, usually resulting in humorous situations. The judge then choose a winner, and the judge position rotates to the next player.

Truly creative types can edit and share custom card decks with the world, allowing the fun to never spoil or become dull.

Itching to spice up family game night? Cardcast is free through Google Play.

    This might be the reason why I finally buy a Chromecast.

    Can someone please implement texas hold ’em this way? It would be awesome to have everyone in the living room with their phones and the TV has the cards, chip stacks, etc. Your hole cards show only on your phone.

  • DanSan

    never done this before, had no idea it was possible. i take it you run the app from your phone and connect to the wifi network the chromecast is on. from there the app syncs up with the chromecast and you’re good to go?

    I have been playing Dehumanize Your Fiends through Chromecast with friends for a few months now and we thoroughly enjoy it. My household even has extra Android devices so guests without androids can play. I do like the idea of getting cards from across the world so I will be downloading this version. I just hope the user generated cards don’t get too out of hand.

    Does anyone know where to find the Apples to Apples deck? I can’t find it on their site and would really like to play it.

    Dehumanize Your Friends has been around for awhile and has a ton of extra card packs.

    • Fozzybare

      Yeah…but the games do glitch out way too easily

  • Chromecast has been spicing up me and my gf relationship. They don’t have many good games but this will be another to add to the list of bedroom activities.

      • Lol. I was joking but ever since I purchased a Chromecast dongle and I gave my gf my S4 we’ve been having more fun playing games at night before bed vs. just watching movies every night.

        • DanSan

          care to explain a little more? might want to try it with my girlfriend as well. our chromecast is hooked up to the tv in our room. any specific games you use? how does it interact with the chromecast?

          • I play Dehumanize with Friends, Tic Tac Toe, Hangman, Doodlecast and a couple others. If you type Chromecast games in the Playstore a bunch should come up and it works smoothly these apps have Chromecast built in so no need for an outside source. I’m hoping for more board game type games like Monopoly to come to Chromecast

    It sucks that I have so many friends with iPhones or this would be perfect at my place! They should make the app available in the iOS app store.

    • jamaall

      Same here. My solution is to take my nexus 7 2013, nexus 7 2012, RAZR m, and give them to my friends to play on, then I have my phone. But that’s only 4 players :/

    • DanSan

      start replacing the friends who have iphones with friends who have android phones. its apparent they make bad decisions by owning an iphone, not a crowd you want to be mixed up with lol
