    One of the easiest achievements after all! This is how you can do this SOLO using your windows phone and Windows 8/10 pc (you just have to repeat these steps 5 times for 5 friends):
    1) Sign up for gmail;
    2) Sign up for facebook using gmail;
    3) Sign up for ms account using gmail;
    4) Go to facebook using the fake account and add as a friend your MAIN facebook (the one that is linked to your xbla profile);
    5) Using Windows 8/10, add a PC account using created MS account;
    6) Using Windows 8/10 pc, log into PC account;
    7) Go to Windows marketplace and install Throne Together;
    8) Start the game and Log in with your fake facebook account, DO NOT log into xboxlive;
    9) Finish off tutorial, go to map screen;
    10) Start the game on your phone, log into your MAIN account and "Ask for extra lives" form your fake account;
    11) On your fake account the envelope with a life will pop up soon after. Open it and send an extra life;
    12) Receive it on your MAIN account!
    Done! Repeat 5 times! It looks complicated, but it's not.
    At some steps it may ask you for sms verification, and you can use the SAME phone number for all accounts!
    Anyway, after few weeks unsuccessful fishing for FB "friends" I did it in about an hour time, using the method above. Good luck!

    XvalgurXAll it takes is 30 minutes of your time... You'd wait for my response longer than that... (facepalm here)
    Also, simple answer is NO, I can not share my details. You can make your own in no time.

    XvalgurXOK, whoever still needs this - I still have 3 active FB accounts for those extra lives. Just send me PM and I'll get back to you with all details!

    o KeyserSoeze oXvalgurX, this is an extremely nice and thorough solution; thank you for posting it.

    I skipped over the Win8 generation and only recently bought myself a SurfacePro, finally able to try this process. I will add that, at least on Win10, you do not need to add new PC accounts; you can simply start the game without signing into Xbox, and then sign into and out of your FB accounts as needed.

    Lastly, apologies, but no, I will not be able to share my extraneous FB account information. They are linked to alternate Xbox accounts I may plan on using in the future, and those accounts are further linked to my own personal accounts, and I would not be comfortable sharing that information with people on TA. I help the community out in many ways, but this cannot be one of them.

    Tap on the heart icon in the game, it will bring up a menu asking you to ask your friends for lives, or to buy more. Tap on the ask friends, then select your Facebook friends who have the game. When you receive a request. You will see a blue envelope below the heart icon. Click on the envelope and accept requests. Please note you can not have more than 5 lives. When you send a life it should not cost you a life. You will need a life from 5 different people. You do not have to wait to be out of lives to request more.

    This process is a little bit buggy, currently I have a request from someone but I can't accept it. These are usually the ones that do not have a profile picture. The developer is aware of the problem and seeking out a solution.

    Tips from Shadow Kisuragi
    Here's some clarification on some of the problems that people are having:
    * Facebook account tied to another Xbox Live Gamertag: Create a new, fake Facebook account and just log into that one. Sucks, but it's better than hoping the developer will fix it for you.
    * Can't Send/Accept Lives: Ensure the person is on your Friends List, and on your Facebook account, BEFORE INSTALLING THE GAME. Once the game is installed, it will never refresh your Friends List, and it will result in being unable to send/accept lives from people that were not on your list before installation. Need to refresh the list? Uninstall, reinstall, and sign into your Facebook account as normal, and your progress will be restored as well.

    This achievement no longer works.

    K1ckIs this still obtainable? I tried to login using my Facebook account but the game always says "App Not Setup: This app is still in development mode, and you don't have access to it. Switch to a registered test user or ask an app admin for permissions"

    ZalexzySeems like it's discontinued now, experienced same problem when trying to ask help for final bridge. Luckily managed to do all 3 missions to open final set of levels.

    I made this facebook account up for the achievement, add it then add anyone on my friends list and they will help you with the achievement. Its a bit buggy sometimes, also you need 5 different people to send you lives. Hope everyone can help everyone.
