The reason I chose to give this game a 3/10 and not something higher like a 7 or an 8; is because, even though there are achievements that require you to use all of your tiles in one turn, spell a 7 letter word vertically, and make a 9 letter word; all of these can be easily accomplished by using an online word generator.

Using a word generator technically is considered a cheat, although it's not exactly an in-game cheat; it still works in the same sense. The best site I've found would have to be http://www.scrabblewordfinder.com/. Make sure you read how to fully use it in the "HOW TO USE" paragraph.

All achievements unlock after the game has finished, and the leaderboards have updated.

Use all of your letters on one turn. (Scrabble is only available in North America and English).

You will need to use all of your available letters on your tray in one word, in one turn. This can be done when all the letters run out and you're left with less than seven letters on your tray.
See "Lengthy Word."

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/985/UPmFoQQ=.jpgBridge the gap 20
Reach the other side of the board in bridge builders. (Scrabble is only available in NA & English).

Play locally with two controllers and choose Bridge Builders from the Scrabble menu. The point of this game is to start from the left side of the board (from the diamond square), and reach the right side using lengthy-horizontal words, before your opponent does. This can also be done through Xbox LIVE.

Place 5+ tiles in one go to create a vertical 7 letter word. Only available in NA & English.

You must use five or more letters in one turn, and the word you create must be seven letters exactly (either by connecting two words, or using all seven letters), while also being vertical.
See "Lengthy Word."

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/985/UPoiIho=.jpgFire it up! 10
Spell 5 words with letters that are "on fire". (Scrabble is only available in NA & English).

Play locally and select Play Custom from the Scrabble menu. Choose Hot Letters as the Game Mode; start the game up. In order to get your letters "on fire" you will need to hold down the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/ls.png until the bag starts on fire; do this when it's your turn to grab letters.

When the bag has flames on it, quickly let go of the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/ls.png and press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/a.png to Deal All. Your letters should be on fire, and this is the state the letters must remain when you create a word. The letters must have flames on them when you press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/y.png to confirm your word (There is a difference between "heated up" and "on fire." "On fire" letters will have flames on them, "heated up" letters will just seem like they're gleaming.)

This must be done in one game and the entire word does not have to be all "on fire;" only one or more letters of the word do. I would suggest using a lot of 2-3 letter words when going for this.

Place 5+ tiles in one go to create a 9 letter word. Scrabble is only available in NA & English.

Use five or more of your letters to create a nine letter word either vertical or horizontally. The easiest way to accomplish this is by using an online word generator. Here is a link to a really good word finder/placer. http://www.scrabblewordfinder.com/
