So, your kids have grown into easily bored teens who would (in their own words) rather die than join your yearly holiday Scrabble tournament. Sorry about that. Maybe they'd enjoy these new Chromecast games for the family a lot better than traditional board games, though. Since they're Chromecast apps, they use your phone or tablet as a controller and the TV as a game board. The list includes titles that put a spin on classic board games (Wheel of Fortune, Hasbro's Monopoly Dash, Scrabble Blitz, Connect Four Quads and Simon Swipe), as well as Just Dance Now for those who prefer a more active game to a sedentary one. And, yes, the phone or tablet can tell if a player's putting their hands in the air or if they're being a wet blanket.
