Form a monopoly as a result of trading.
When you have all but one of the properties you need for a monopoly press the trade icon on your turn and trade for the final property, you can try to trade for someone elseís monopoly but are unlikely to be successful.

Buy a property
Simple achievement likely to be your first as soon as its your turn roll the dice and confirm your purchase of the property you land on.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1673/5-ty+pE=.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/monopoly-wp7/achievement/46159-Globe-Trotter.html)3.Globe Trotter - 20g
Land on every property on the board
This is not as difficult as it seems but is based on luck simply land on all properties train stations and utilities, this does not have to be in one game mine unlocked before I had landed on all properties in my second game.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1673/-2ZCMA==.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/monopoly-wp7/achievement/46160-Moving-On-Up.html)4. Moving on up - 15g

Once you own your first monopoly press the manage option and build houses on your monopoly.

Be responsible for the bankruptcy of another player
When you own properties if a player lands on them they pay you rent simply take the last bit of money off a player to get this, building hotels on you properties yields much higher rent.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1673/-UdLhQ==.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/monopoly-wp7/achievement/46162-Now-You-re-On-Your-Way.html)6. Now You're On Your Way - 10g
Own a monopoly
Another easy achievement simply own all properties in one set this can be all properties of one group all train stations or both utilities.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1673/5-qSAgI=.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/monopoly-wp7/achievement/46163-Rolled-To-Freedom.html)7. Rolled to freedom - 10g
Rolled a double to get out of jail
This is not to bad to get, when you get sent to jail donít buy yourself out or use a get out of jail free card you will get three chances to roll a double before you have to buy yourself out at the end of your third turn.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1673/5-izC7c=.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/monopoly-wp7/achievement/46164-Rolled-To-Jail.html)8. Rolled to jail - 10g
Roll three doubles in a row and get sent to jail
This can be a real pain to get and is based on pure luck, keep trying and you will get it, as it says roll three doubles in a row and the achievement will be yours.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1673/5-7QEWg=.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/monopoly-wp7/achievement/46165-Taking-Sides.html)9. Taking sides - 40g
Own every property, including any ports and utilities, down one whole side of the board
Not too difficult to get just buy or trade for every property on one side of the board.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1673/5-lT8yQ=.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/monopoly-wp7/achievement/46166-The-View-From-The-Top.html)10. The view from the top - 25g
Build your first set of hotels.
To build hotels you need to first build 4 houses on every property in you monopoly once you have done this you will be able to build hotels in place of the four houses, but to built a hotel there must be four houses first.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1673/5-8w6fs=.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/monopoly-wp7/achievement/46167-Transport-King.html)11.Transport king - 10g
Own the monopoly on the transport properties
Simply buy or trade for all of the train stations, there are four and are located in the centre of each side of the game board.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1673/5-0R4E4=.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/monopoly-wp7/achievement/46168-You-ve-Got-The-Power.html)12. Youíve got the power - 10g
Own the monopoly on the utilities
Again all you have to do is buy or trade for both of the utilities.





Tips:

You can play against yourself by selecting 2-4 human players on your phone, therefore you can choose not to buy properties you land on and bid for them simply bid $1 and pass with the player/s you donít want to win.
For the trading achievement you can trade against a human and just get what you want to for free.
If you want a game to continue simply give the other player money in a trade, they donít have to give anything in return.

Yup gottoo say very easy 200, took probably around 90 minutes, to be fair it would take 30 if it weren't for having to get 3 doubles in a row, short and sweet, not a great quality title, detection is a little patchy but very easy points :) I think i was 6th to complete it, if only 02 hadn't have messed up with not allowing my data connection I'd have done it much sooner, plus I've been hammering away at Bejeweled haha.

But yeah, as random mr X says, 1/10 difficulty, 2 hours TOPS

Select four human players. Turn off shake to roll and auctions. Don't buy any properties. It took me a couple of hours to finally get it.

Bought it yesterday as Deal of the Week: 190 G in less than 40 minutes.

I just played 1 match against 1 human (myself) and I got most of the achievements with player 1 and a couple with player 2.

So, now that I need three double in a row, the question is: if the A.I. rolls three double in a row you get the achievement?

If not I will go with a 4 humans match.

I was lucky!

After only 20 minutes of a 4 human players match I got the three doubles in a row with player 2. It was the fifth time I was getting two doubles in a row when the third double happened.

This happened for me aswell. It unlocked the moment I bought my final house.

i thought i did notice tapping the screen halfway through the dice rising gave me more doubles but could just be me i still managed to get it before the globe trotter achievement. :confused:

I did something similar and was able to get four in a row. I turned Shake To Roll on, then held the phone flat and gave it a quick, sharp shake towards me, then immediately tapped the centre of the screen. It could have just been a a fluke fo course....

I have a guaranteed method of getting the three doubles in about 5 or 10 minutes.

I am not sure of the protocol for achievement guides but may I suggest to the author the following alteration to the description to include my method? Apologies if this isn't how things are done but here goes!

8. Rolled to jail - 10g
Roll three doubles in a row and get sent to jail
This can be a real pain to get and is based on pure luck, keep trying and you will get it, as it says roll three doubles in a row and the achievement will be yours.

An easy method to obtain this achievement is as follows:

Wait until you roll a double, watch your piece move to its destination, then roll again. If you don't roll a double, quickly press the Windows button on your phone to return to the main menu before you piece starts to move. , so pretty much as soon as the dice land and you can see the result.

Reload the game and use the Resume option, you will reload at the point before you made your second roll, repeat the method until you roll your second double.

Once you roll your second double, allow your piece to move and repeat as above until you roll your third double and an instant 10g!

Hope this helps get the annoying achievement out of the way! I don't take credit for this as a friend explained the method to me, so much gratitude to whomever was his source lol.

Worked for me too?????

Anyone had problems with achievements not unlocking? I bought houses and a hotel for one of the properties and in game it said achievement unlocked but WP7 and my GS say otherwise.

EDIT: NVM about the achievements I deleted the game and re-installed it and re did the criteria, it popped and gave me the GS.

Has anyone else had trouble with globe trotter? I'm certain I've landed on every property, but no achievement.

Edit: Nevermind, the delete then re-install trick worked.

Similar to Graivul and Littlejay (sp?), I found an almost identical way to get the 'Rolled to Jail' achievement to their method, minus the Windows key.

You can start one of two ways: 1. Wait until you actually roll a double (which you will), or 2. As soon as it is your turn, Save and Exit.

- Roll Double#1
- Menu, Save and Exit
- Roll#2
--- If not a double, Menu, Main Menu
--- If Double#2, Menu, Save and Exit
-Roll #3
--- If not a double, Menu, Main Menu
--- If Double#, Achievement 'Rolled to Jail'
Now save your game as soon as it is your turn again, then Roll#1
--- If not a double, Menu, Main Menu
--- If Double#, Achievement 'Rolled to Freedom'
Absolutely no luck involved...just some patience...

A simple trick to tell if you landed on each property is have a game where its just 2 human players and all the properties are distributed to the players. Just before the first roll, give all your properties to player two and play normally. Each time player one lands on a property owned by player 2, just trade with him that property you landed on. The color below the property will change to player one's and therefore seeing that you landed on it. Use this method in conjunction with all the other achievements and you'll be golden. Unless you are impatient with unlocking achievements.
