Cardcast is an open-format, card-matching party game for the Google Chromecast and Android TV.
NOTE: If your Chromecast isn't found, try restarting your iPhone or iPad by holding down the power button for several seconds. After turning it back on, the Chromecast should be found by Cardcast. This issue appears to stem from a bug in the Cast code from Google.
Playing is easy:
1. A judge draws a call.
2. Players submit responses that match or complete the call.
3. The judge picks a favorite response.
4. Rinse and repeat.
Call and response decks are pulled from the http://www.cardcastgame.com API. Play with the most-popular decks or create your own.

Ratings and Reviews
There is no reason this needs Chromecast to function
As someone who has used the desktop site for years to create card decks of my own, I can't stress enough how disappointing the mobile version ultimately is.
Chromecast is a very gimmicky way to run this game. I can think of a dozen card apps with far better success that do not need an external means to function. . .
If you want to use Cardcast cards, I still highly recommend desktop sites importing your cards using card game sites like "Pretend You're Xyzzy." Otherwise, if it's the in-person experience you're after, you're better off with physical cards.
I don’t understand why
This app is pretty useless, you need a chrome cast which doesn’t make sense at all! You should be able to play without one. I never got an actual chance to play because I didn’t have one so I don’t know what the actual game could be like. Honestly if you wanna play this then just use the computer it’s so much easier just don’t get this because it’s kinda disappointing unless you have a chrome cast then by all means get it.
This app is great!
This app is so much fun and easy to use. Very simple to setup, very stable and fast. I definitely reccomend this app for parties of any size. The screen on the Chromecast is very well designed so everyone can see what is going on.
