Every weekend, Windows Central streams an Xbox One game or two on Twitch for 1-2 hours and gives out free games to the cool people who join us during the stream. Last week, we streamed The Golf Club and dished out codes to 11 lucky viewers.
Tonight, we'll be playing Fibbage from Jackbox Games. This will be a special stream because all of our viewers can play along with us, even if you don't own the game. All you need is a phone to play from while you watch the stream on another device. Plus we're giving out over 10 free copies of the game as prizes!
Update: The stream has ended. Lots of people got to play, and everybody seemed to have a great time. Continue reading to see the full replay and list of winners!
Back in August, Jackbox Games made a splash with its downloadable party game Fibbage. As the game slings difficult trivia questions at players, the goal is to either answer correctly or come up with a "lie" that other players will think is correct. Up to eight players can participate at once, all playing through their smartphones or tablets. Tonight, those players will be you guys!
Fibbage doesn't require SmartGlass or other downloadable apps. You simply play from a web browser. Head to Fibbage.com when instructed by the game, enter the four digit room code generated by the game (or scan a QR code), and input your name. Once all players have joined the game, choose to start and the game will begin.
If you like Fibbage, be sure to check out Jackbox Party Pack, a special collection that contains Fibbage XL plus four more silly multiplayer games. Check out our full Fibbage review and 2014 Xbox One Games of the Year story for more details!

We'll be streaming for one hour tonight, starting at 8pm Central (9pm Eastern, 6pm Pacific). During that time, we'll be giving out a total of 13 game codes:
- 5 Fibbage codes for Xbox One
- 4 Fibbage codes for Playstation 4
- 4 Jackbox Party Pack codes for Steam – a $25 value!
To enter, just follow me at Twitch.tv/Eastxtwitch and tune in during the stream. You can watch the stream right here in this post, but you need to actually participate in the stream chat to have a chance at winning. We'll deliver codes to the winners via Twitch message (PM) during the stream. No code begging!
What's the best way to experience Twitch? If you don't have a PC, you can get the Xbox One or Xbox 360 Twitch app and watch from the comfort of your couch. Or grab the unofficial app Livegaming for Windows Phone. It has plenty of great features, including the ability to chat along with your fellow viewers. Unfortunately you'll have to add our channel to your favorites from the Twitch website, outside of the app.
I'll be available for a few minutes before and after the stream if you have any questions or just want to say hi. If you enjoy the stream, be sure to check our schedule and come back for more!
