While we can't exactly call it Cards Against Humanity (they're a bit picky about that), there's a new game out for Android that works with your Chromecast to let you play basically-Cards-Against-Humanity with your friends, and it's called Cardcast. Cardcast allows you to create decks, download decks (including most of the official CAH decks), and all you need to play it are some friends, a Chromecast, and an Android device for each player.

Just launch the app, pick the Chromecast you want to connect to (and let every other player do the same), and you'll be up and running in no time. Cardcast supports 2-10 players, which should accommodate all but the most ambitious CAH parties.

Decks are pulled directly from Cardcast's own library via API, so you download new decks on the fly. To get started, head to the Play Store and download the app. They also have a really great website.

    Their site, http://www.cardcastgame.com, is simply fantastic. Bravo.

    • Ryan O’Neill

      That is some nice web design. It also seems somewhat in-line with Material Design, with all the colors and little animations.

        and crazy fast, I'm accessing from india and showing a ping time of 131ms but everything on that page loaded instantaneously, seriously impressive

  • Samuel Hsieh

    I wish more games do this. Any board game can do this really. Not to mention cross platform.

  • Dennis Ulijn

    the way i see it everybody gives a random answer to the question on the screen and the judge picks the 'best' answer... Isn't it better to have a predetermined right answer?

    • r4v5

      Depends on what you're trying to do. Is there really a predetermined right answer for these questions?

    • Fozzybare

      what?

    • Ygor Vaz

      There are thousand of different answers to the same question. What makes them the right answer is the one that answers the question in the most ridiculous, fun and dark way. Here an example where the answer (in white) fills the blank space of the question (in dark): https://s3.amazonaws.com/ksr/assets/001/008/218/515e070d9c9ff2c856230aa377707f1e_large.jpg?1381355341

      Right answers... when you have battle between "My Black Ass" and "Penis Breath" as possible answers, I think not!

    • http://turbofool.com Jarrett Lennon Kaufman

      Have you ever played Cards Against Humanity? There's no such concept as a predetermined right answer. Every answer is subjective.

    • Krzysztof Jozwik

      That defeats the purpose of the game. One of the best things is trying to figure out which answer the judge will respond best to.
      You can try Apples to Apples for another example of how the game works.

  • Fozzybare

    dehumanize your friends works quite well already. i guess ill see how this is.

  • BoFiS

    Would each player have to have downloaded all of the same card packs in order to play?

  • Disconn3ct

    Dehumanize has been around for a while now.. why is this better/different? (Or even 'new'..)

    • http://turbofool.com Jarrett Lennon Kaufman

      Wondering the same. Particularly as they had to change from something this close to the game to what they are now for reasons I can't imagine this version gets around.

    • Blank

      Because it isn't getting support anymore. Check out their G+ community.

  • remister

    Just to think I brought the card game literally last week. I have to try this out.

    +1 for what may seem like screenshots from a Galaxy Nexus!

  • Jeliche

  • Dan Albert

    I wish I could have the host app be on my PC which is connected to my TV

  • Sinistar83

    Never played Cards against Humanity but this looks pretty interesting use for ChromeCast. Does this version need a judge to play?

    I have been playing a similar game http://www.playingfavoritesgame.com/ where you come up with phrases based on the cards you are dealt and then everyone in the game votes for the favorite one, but it doesn't use chromecast.

  • Gaurav Arora

    Uranus.

  • Sootie

    I was pretty much sold on chromecast before but this seals the deal, this is a really clever application bringing together several existing technologies

  • Godspoken

    What a cool implementation. Just pushed me to finally jump on the Chromecast bandwagon.

  • therealbiglou

    I really hope this comes out on iOS. I'd love to play, but the simple fact is most people in a party setting have an iPhone.
