Hasbro Releases Chromecast Versions Of Risk, Game Of Life, And Scrabble Blitz 2, Offers One-Time Unlock For Unlimited Play

Risk, The Game Of Life, and Scrabble [Blitz 2...] are all classic board game franchises that would really benefit from the Chromecast treatment. And that's exactly what Hasbro's done today, releasing all three games in brand-new Chromecast "big screen" editions for Android. The best part? While they do have in-app purchases, they're the kind that make sense. While you can play all three games for free up to three times a day, one-time unlock IAPs offer players unlimited play (and usually some bonus content) from then on. It's $5.99 for Risk and Life, and $3.99 for Scrabble.

The catch, of course, is that everybody who plays must pay for this unlock if they also want to play unlimited rounds of the games, meaning a family of four would need to pony up a little under $24 for everyone to get in on endless games of Risk or The Game Of Life, or a little over $15 for Scrabble Blitz 2.

EA Games Brings The Game Of Life To The Android Market – Play Through Infinite Alternate Lives With Up To Three Friends

Giving new life to a classic board game, EA Games has brought The Game of Life to the Android Market. The game has been given a three-dimensional treatment, taking users through "winding roads and lush environments."

Personally, I find the graphics less than "amazing," but the gameplay looks fun enough for a pass-and-play reimagining of the popular board game. If you're looking for a way to waste a little time with a few friends, The Game of Life will certainly be of help, and it can be yours for $4.99 (or £2.99 for the 'Rest of the World' version).
