How to stream a Crossword Puzzle?

This is not a crossword that you need to build from scratch, install complicated software and manually fill out the results. Nope. This is a fully automated game for live streamers that is easy to set up and pull up during your live show on Youtube, Facebook, or Twitch. The significant part is that creating an interactive live Crossword is as easy as "drag-and-drop." No technical computer skills are required.

Crossword allows you to mix up your live show while staying on topic. You can use a crossword for good fun or test your audience's knowledge while promoting your product or service. You can stream a crossword in one single stream before, during, or after your show.

How to go live with a Crossword?

Going live with a crossword involves your audience guessing words through the stream chat. Correct answers are highlighted in the streaming video. As viewers guess words associated with green squares, new sets of squares and clues are revealed. The end of the game displays a leaderboard, showcasing player names and scores, fostering competition and engagement.

Even if you use streaming software like OBS, and vMix, you can use the LiveReacting plugin to infuse a Crossword in your next live stream for optimal viewer engagement and conversion.

*Live Crossword is available on a no-strings-attached FREE Trial.

How to play? Game dynamics.

Your audience tries to hit the words using the stream chat.
They will score for correct answers, which are displayed inside the stream.

When a player guesses the word from green squares, another set of squares turns green and appropriate clues are displayed below. At the end of the game, the viewers will see a final leaderboard with all names of the players and their scores.

On the right sidebar, you can pause a game (let's say if you want to stream something else in between). You can also finish any round prematurely, open the leaderboard and view answers if your audience struggles to answer and you need help remembering the correct answer.
