Welcome to Sorry!, the latest addition the the Family Game Night. Just like the other games, Sorry! comes with 10 achievements worth 200 points. Sorry! is priced at 800 MSP and available in all regions.

Guide:



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/985/UPj8oFg=.jpgMy Apologies - 5 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif
Moved one pawn of an opposing team back to the Start Zone

Simply move a pawn of an enemy back to the start zone. You may do this using a Sorry!-card, a yellow slide or several bonus cards (Sideswipe, Wipeout) found in the Bonus Cards mode of the game. This one will definitely come while you're doing the other achievements.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/985/UP8KWEY=.jpgI am not Sorry at all - 30 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif
Won a multiplayer game of Sorry! in under 10 minutes

Win any match in less than 10 minutes. Easiest done in Bonus Cards mode with 2 controllers. The quickest route is to go directly to the right, not the left. You may do this if you have a 1 or 2 to place a pawn on the actual board and then use a 4 to reach the rightmost corner.

Note that getting 1's and 4's right at the start won't happen every time, so this one is a little luck-based.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/985/UPuXka0=.jpgWin! - 10 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif
Won one game of Sorry!

See 5 Times Win.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/985/UPrdqe0=.jpg5 Times Win! - 25 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif
Win a total of 5 games of Sorry! against a friend

Simply set up any match with 2 controllers. The quickest way to do this is the Bonus Cards mode. One match endures approx. 7-8 minutes; 5-6 if you're lucky at receiving cards. That's a total of about 30-40 minutes for all games.

As stated by the user Rocket, these wins don't have to be against a friend at all, as wins against the CPU will count, too. Whilst wins with 2 controllers will be a lot faster, this is good news for everyone with only 1 controller.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/985/UPp3aT4=.jpgFragile Alliance - 10 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif
Finished Sorry! without sending any of one teams pawns back to the start

This one might be tricky. You are requested to finish a match without ever having any other pawns moved back to their starts. That means you won't be able to use Sorry!-cards, the bonus cards "Wipeout" and "Sideswipe" or yellow slides.

This may become really annoying, especially if you end up having only Sorry!-cards available. Small hint: If you have a steal card available on any other player besides you, use it to steal the Sorry! card of your cheevo-account on purpose. You will need to remember the correct position of the card as the enemy cards are covered while in steal mode.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/985/-xu5ow==.jpgRed Vengeance - 20 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif
Used Sorry! on an opponent within one round of them using Sorry! on one of your pawns

Simple: Right after one of the other teams used a Sorry!-card on you, do the same on them.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/985/UPzLqWA=.jpgRainbow Dancing - 10 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif
Win a game after moving one pawn from each team back to the start zone

See All Out Offensive.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/985/UP7qoNU=.jpgAll Out Offensive - 30 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif
Move 2 pawns from every opposing team back to the start in one game

Set up a match with 4 controllers (GH controllers work, too). Now you don't want to finish the match unless you moved 2 pawns of every team back to their starts. If you're unsure, write a list and cross them off as you move them back.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/985/+Jhb7w==.jpgThe Yellow Dart - 20 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif
Use a Sorry! yellow slide to send a pawn back to start

Slide over an enemy while he is standing somewhere in the middle of a yellow slide. There are 2 on every side of the board.

http://img13.imageshack.us/img13/1377/imgp0002r.jpg

Have the enemy player stand somewhere between A-D whilst you directly hit E to start the slide (You won't start it when you hit some other spot than E).

Note: Slides may appear in different colors.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/985/-DytrQ==.jpgMaster of the Cards - 40 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif
Use all the Sorry! Bonus Cards in one game

Simple. Just avoid winning a Bonus Cards game unless you're sure to have used all available Bonus Cards.

There are 5 different cards:

Steal (Steal any card from any player)
Sideswipe (Take out every pawn standing on a certain side of the board)
Wipeout (Take out at least 1 pawn of every player)
All Change (Get a complete new set of cards)
Freedom (Get pawns onto the actual board without being needed to have a 1 or 2)

You might want to add that achievements pop after the someone has won the game, easy achievements such as My Apologies and Red Vengeance do not pop as soon as you complete the requirements for them, they pop after a winner has been declared.

Awesome guide though!

I think they mean that at least one team can't be gotten out by you, hence the fact that it says "...Any of ONE teams..." and not "...Any teams...". Sorry I didn't do a quote, but I backspaced the quote coding by accident.

Since many people have problems with thr achievement-popping, I won't add such notes. Sometimes they pop directly after you have done what the achievement "says" and sometimes you need to click through leaderboards/achievements in my stuff to get them to pop.

Edit: Updated achievement solution for The Yellow Dart.

You may also want to put in there, as I confirmed this with 2 accounts, that for the 5 wins, they don't have to be against a friend at all. I got my 5 wins while playing against the computer, I didn't even plug in a second controller getting my 200. I did the same thing with my wife's account.

EDIT Well it popped eventually.I captured 2 pieces on both yellow arrow sections and after that it unlocked.

That was my experience ... in fact, I got Red Vengeance and My Apologies in the same game as Fragile Alliance. There was one team that I never bumped (quite by accident, but a fortunate one it seems).

For that achievement i just played with one other person and i just kept moving around the board and making sure that my next move wasnt to hit my opponent. So eventualy after all the pawn moving i did my partner won the game and i still got the achievement.

Use a Sorry! yellow slide to send a pawn back to start

Slide over an enemy while he is standing somewhere in the middle of a yellow slide. There are 2 on every side of the board.

http://img13.imageshack.us/img13/1377/imgp0002r.jpg

Have the enemy player stand somewhere between A-D whilst you directly hit E to start the slide (You won't start it when you hit some other spot than E).

Note: Slides may appear in different colors.

There are only two yellow slides on the board; slides match the colors of the Start and Home spaces on that side of the board, and pieces do not slide on slides of their own color.

I do not believe you will get this achievement unless you hit a piece on a yellow slide (on the opposite side of the board from red).

I tried it again last night, this time with 4 controllers and I made sure, just in case, that I ONLY sent back 1 pawn from each team, and I also won the game...still nothing!! someone help!!

to be truthful, i got both those achievements my first game with 2 controllers and it was my first time playing sorry ever...... i guess i got ultra lucky becuz i wasnt even trying for those achievements lol and ended up missing the one i was aiming for :p

only advice, is play dirty!!! or its your save??:confused:

i guess a quick tip for fragile alliance is only swap positions with other pawns and don't knock them back home. i got this today and i wasn't even trying for it. you also don't have to win the game.

For anyone having trouble with the Yellow Dart achievement:

I kept sliding into only one opponent on a single yellow slide and wasn't getting it. I finally got it by using a second controller and setting myself up so I could slide into a bunch. I slid into 2 at once on one yellow slide, I also slid into one on the other yellow slide, and then also into a few on other colored slides. So I probably went overboard but I wasn't getting it any other way.

In summary, make sure you take opponents out with both yellow slides, and possibly 2 at once. It's pretty easy to do if you use a second controller and set yourself up.

Does the steal card not appear with 0 AI players? I swear I've been playing for like 30 minutes and haven't seen a single steal card.

For this achievement:

Finished Sorry! without sending any of one teams pawns back to the start

It states you only have to finish a game without sending any of ONE teams pawns back to the start, not every teams. This makes it alot easier. All you have to do is make sure you steer clear of one team, using your Sorry! cards on the other teams. Unless you get the power up to hit 1 pawn from each team, it'll be easy to get this achievement.
