There are plenty of great board games that have made their way onto mobile, but in most cases, it’s incredibly difficult to play the same game with multiple people on the same tiny screen (even if it is a tablet). To that end, Hasbro has just launched new versions of Risk, Game of Life and Scrabble Blitz 2 with Chromecast support so that you can enjoy all these classic board games from the comfort of your lounge room. The neat thing about this arrangement is that you’re able to link multiple devices up to the game and share the screen – there is a pretty major catch though; all these games are free-to-play, but you only get three games every day unless you pay the unlock fee.
The unlock fee is $5.99 USD for Risk and Game of Life, and $3.99 USD for Scrabble Blitz 2 – note that this is only for an individual Google Play account, so if you want to play unlimited games of something, you’ll all have to pay the unlock fee. Having said that, the three games a day is going to be enough for most casual players so that’s not a huge issue. If this is your kind of party, you can pick up one (or all three) of the games for free – Play Store links are below:
