I noticed that this game wasn't getting much love here, so I thought I'd put together a guide incase someone was confused about something.

*Merv Griffin's Xwords*

http://x360a.com/images/achievements/920/+5I5HQ==.jpgCrosswords Contestant - 10g

Complete an online multiplayer game.

Self-explanitory. If anyone has trouble finding a match online for this one, feel free to send me a message over Live and I'll play with you.

http://x360a.com/images/achievements/920/+nLBjg==.jpgChampion - 10g

Complete an online game in first place.

Another self-explanitory achievement. Same as above. If you need an opponent, let me know and I'll hop on.

http://x360a.com/images/achievements/920/-9Aqdw==.jpgTimed Mode Novice - 10g

Complete a puzzle in timed mode in under 30:00 minutes.

This one can be tough, but luckily you can pause your game and stop the clock! I know it's cheap, but if you get stuck on a question in timed mode, just pause your game and look for the answer online.

Come back from a deficit of more than $5000.

This one is easy. Purposely miss enough questions to get to -$5000 and then start trying. Remember to pause and look on the internet if you get stuck. Also, you should play on easy to get this achievement.

Win a normal difficulty game without using any hints.

This is another self-explanitory achievement. Just start a game on Normal and use the internet if you think you might lose.

http://x360a.com/images/achievements/920/-fEjwg==.jpgBig Spender - 15g

Bet $10,000 or more of your money on an Extra and win the question.

Another easy one. In order to place a $10,000 bet, you must have $10,000 won already. When you get a bonus question, wager $10,000 and try answering the question correctly. I've found that it's easier if you choose a category that you're good at. I pretty much always choose Video Games. If the question is something you don't know, use the internet.

http://x360a.com/images/achievements/920/-tY3zA==.jpgSpoiler - 20g

Start an online multiplayer game as a spoiler and take over a front podium.

This one is pretty simple, aswell. Just go into an online match with 2-3 other people and hope you start as a Spoiler. Act fast and answer correctly to take a front podium. This one is easily boostable.

http://x360a.com/images/achievements/920/-zbPXw==.jpgComeback - 20g

Get a front podium back after losing one to a spoiler.

Simple. Purposely miss a few questions until a spoiler takes your spot. Once you occupy a spoiler podium, answer a question correctly and reclaim one of the front podiums.

http://x360a.com/images/achievements/920/-Iging==.jpgTimed Mode Adept - 20g

Complete a puzzle in timed mode in under 15:00 minutes.

This is another one of those pause and use the net achievements.

http://x360a.com/images/achievements/920/-qkrKw==.jpgTimed Mode Hero - 25g

Complete a puzzle in timed mode in under 6:00 minutes.

This one can be hard, depending on how fast you read the questions and how fast you enter them in. Remember, USE THE NET!

http://x360a.com/images/achievements/920/-0nTuA==.jpgGlobetrotter - 25g

Win every trip possible.

This achievement is stupid and adds little to the game experience, but you want 200, don't you? Ok, so here's how this works. Every time you play a game, you have a chance to win up to 3 trips. There are a LOT of trips to be won, and you just need to keep playing. You can win 2 trips during the regular rounds and you have a shot at getting a third if you win the bonus round.

http://x360a.com/images/achievements/920/+us4QQ==.jpgSunday Best - 25g

Win 5 games with 'Sunday' puzzles on Expert difficulty.

This one sounds more intimidating than it really is. Since this one isn't timed, you can take your time answering the questions. Just be sure to ring in quick, because your opponent hardly ever gets an incorrect answer.
