Join the mayhem for a chance to win an Xbox One

xbox 1 Have you ever wondered what it would be like to compete against your best friend in an epic game-off? That’s exactly what internet comedy duo Jake and Amir will be doing during Level 48. The rules – 2 days, 5 games, and Skype on Xbox One as their only contact with the outside world. The kicker – the fans decide what happens next.

Tune in on July 30th and 31st to watch Jake and Amir battle through 48 levels of hand-to-controller combat, all while using Skype on Xbox One to keep in touch with the outside world. They’ll use voice commands, HD 1:1 video, group video calls and Snap to aid them in their quest to become the ultimate gamer. But you are going to help decide the outcome, by voting on who deserves helps and hinders throughout the two days of gaming.

Play along now by picking a side and designing the gaming room. Add Team Jake or Team Amir on Skype and you’ll get access to an exclusive chat filled with fans, a chance to join the guys on a video call during the live event and a shot at winning one of 10 Xbox Ones*.

See how it all began. Watch the teaser.

Host Bobby Lee, along with a crazy cast of characters, will be there every step of the way.

Hear what they have to say about the event.

Bobby Lee: “My father used to tell me you’re only as good as the people reading your quote in a blog post. He also used to tell me that squirrels could read minds. So…”

Michael the Intern: “N/A” (Bobby has banned Michael from speaking.)

Willow Chakra: “It is time you became one with the Xbox One. But first, let’s eat everything in your refrigerator. I can’t be mystical on an empty stomach.”

Why are you still reading this? Jake and Amir need you.
