How to stream video game with 1 mic and 2 headsets ?

Hello everyone,

First, i'm so, so, sorry for my horrible english (i'm french and i don't find any answer to my problem in french forums). I hope you will understand my request.

I'm sorry to bother you but i really need your help.
We would like, my boyfriend and I (i'm a girl, consider that i'm a little stupid), start streaming video games. We bought for that a Blue Yeti mic and we have both a headset (and both a computer).
However, we didn't think there would be some technical problems.

Here is our question : is it possible to stream with one mic for two people, on two different computers, in the same room, and each of us with a headset ? The goal would be to able hear the game we're playing as well as the other one on our headset, without return of our own voice. And to be able to stream all that.

If anyone can help us (and also understand what i mean), we will devote eternal gratitude to him (and it's sure worth it). Don't hesitate to ask us any information and to advise us on anything that could bring us closer to our goal.

Thanks in advance and have a good morning/day/evening/night !

Let's see if I understand this correctly.

2 Computers
Two Headsets
2 copies of the same game
1 micro phone.
The Blue Yeti has one connection for input but is able to capture sound bidirectional.
So while you could both speak down it at the same time during play the source of the sound, in the game, would be whomever that the Blue Yeti plugged into their Computer.

Might be worth considering selling the Blue Yeti and getting two decent(ish). pace each.

Reach out and ask how to get help

It's a little advanced setup. I've been watching Leonard French "Your favorite copyright attorney" and he notes a fellow that helps him setup and produce his channel. Find him (google does find him) and email him to see what the help there thinks how they would solve this.
