Cards Against Humanity is a party game, that brings hilarity, just the right amount of immaturity, sometimes a little awkwardness, and tons of fun to any adult party. A new Android app dubbed Casts Against Civility aims to bring the popular party game to largest screen in your house, thanks to Chromecast.
Just like the regular Cards Against Humanity game, the objective of this Chromecast game is to respond to a question or statement that has certain words or a phrase hidden by playing one of ten cards available in your hand. Almost Mad Libs style, it’s generally accepted to make completely horrible combinations to appease the ‘Card Czar’.
You’ll need at least two people to play, however it’s much, much more fun with 3 or more players. To get started, everyone playing will need to have the app on their phone or tablet and connected to the same WiFi network. After launching the app, you’ll want to go into settings and assign a player name. Next, just tap the familiar Cast button and choose your Chromecast. The Card Czar is automatically chosen and assigned to read the black card on TV to the rest of the group. All players are given 10 cards on their devices and must choose one to play by tapping on the card. Remember, choose an answer that you feel the Card Czar will like…or hate the most. The Card Czar then chooses their favorite submission and ‘Awesome’ points are awarded to the winner.
Cards Against Humanity games tend to last a long time and we’re sure Casts Against Civility will follow suit. If you’re going to organize a Chromecast game night, it’s probably going to be a smart move to have your friends bring along their phone chargers just in case. Casts Against Civility is currently in the beta stage, however stable enough to play and available on the Google Play Store.
