If you have a Chromebook, you may have noticed that there are not as many games for it as for other types of computers. But that does not mean there is nothing to play! Now most Chromebooks have access to the Google Play store, so you have millions of Android games at your disposal. And even if you have an older device with Chrome OS, you can find a good selection of titles, from role plays to mental skills games. Here we compile a list of the best games for Chromebook, and best of all, almost everyone is free!
A note about compatibility: Chromebooks do not support many games due to controller or hardware issues. Some technically open in the browser as Chrome applications and will not experience problems. We have included some of these. However, we also include some Android games that are available in the Google Play Store and are played well on most computers with Chrome OS.

It's quite addictive and it's always a lot of fun to see other players around the world escape from you or swallow you.
