The Chromecast is am immensely useful tool for streaming content from your devices to your TV, but for the holiday season, Google is making it a bit more useful for the family. A bunch of games have been added to the list of Chomecast-supported apps, and a lot of them are Hasbro games.

Angry Birds Friends and Driver Speedboat Paradise have been added, and you play them using your phone as the controller. Hasbro has also added Monopoly Here & Now, Yahtzee Blitz, The Game of Life, Scrabble Blitz 2.0, and Risk. Unfortunately, the Hasbro games are only available in the US and Canada.

While the quality of gaming on the Chromecast can vary (in games like Driver, latency can be a problem), but the Hasbro games are perfectly suited for the big screen. The moves are shown on the TV, while your cards are on your phone or tablet.
