50 G Finish the game in first place with each of the 8 characters.

Unless you are going to boost for this play offline; start up a quick game and make sure the game length is on short. After a few play-through’s you should get the hang of the games and races, it is a simple task. Come in first with each of the 8 characters. This achievement is pretty self explanatory.
NOTE-While getting this you will also get the “Get to know everyone” achievement.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/+yfOCg==.jpgKing Roario Award
50 G Win all Challenge Events and races in a single game.

This is definitely easiest to do online with a friend. The online AI are not as challenging as the offline AI. During races have your buddy cut off and attack the AI so you can get ahead. If you are going for this offline make sure to set the game to short. It is also good to know your short cuts on the races. An excellent guide can be found HERE. (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=44035) Other then that hope for some mini games you are good at, always practice them before you play them.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/UPoQAcQ=.jpgRedhott Racer
50 G Finish every race.

Simply finish every race. You will unlock races by finishing short, medium and long games. Set the game to long and you will play 7 races. I personally unlocked all of the races while playing online. After that I played the races that I didn’t recognize. The achievement is unlocked upon the completion of the last race. After you have unlocked all of the games you can go to practice mode and play them, instead of playing through all of the challenge events.
NOTE-You do not have to come in first for this achievement.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/--wkrw==.jpgBoy Band
30 G As a male character, finish a game while never losing to a female character.

Choose 1 of 4 male characters. Start up a short game and make sure not to lose to any of the girl characters. Sometimes it is hard to see which is male which is female. Some females have bows and/or pink/purple colors.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/-hzcPA==.jpgGirl Power
30 G As a female character, finish a game while never losing to a male character.

See Boy Band achievement, above. Just choose a girl character and do the opposite.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/UP0KGkc=.jpgMegaton
30 G Use the Fiesta Missile power-up on each of the 8 characters.

The Fiesta Missile is the heat seeking bomb that will follow the piñatas until they hit them. Run a race as normal, if you happen to pick up that power-up (looks like a white rocket) drop back to second and fire and attack on that player. If you cant keep track of which piñatas you have hit, trade achievements with a friend.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/-D3ViQ==.jpgChewnicorn Streak
30 G Win 8 Challenge Events in a row.

Hard achievement, I recommend you boost for it. Just set up a long game, or a custom game online and win 8 challenge events in a row with a friend. Races do not count toward challenge events.
NOTE-While getting this you will unlock the achievements for 3 and 5 win streak

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/-4M4SA==.jpgKittyfloss Streak
20 G Win 5 Challenge Events in a row.

See Chewnicorn Streak, above.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/-mPA2w==.jpgWhirlm Streak
15 G Win 3 Challenge Events in a row.

See Chewnicorn Streak, above.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/UPnR8OI=.jpgProfessor Pester Award
20 G Hit every player with a power-up in a single race.

Play a race and hit all of the people you are racing against with an attack. I got this in my second race, the weapons you can use are the Fiesta Missile, Smoke Bomb and Color Water Attack. Make sure you hit each of your opponents once.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/UPr84lk=.jpgArtful Dodger
20 G Avoid the snowball in Snow-bowl Dodgeball.

This achievement is so simple! When the game starts run up and out of the “bowl” in the middle and head up toward the wall on the sides of the arena and wait, the snowball will never leave the bowl so you are perfectly safe. When the game ends the achievement unlocks.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/UP8YKu4=.jpgCatch It if You Can
20 G Play a game with anyone who has this achievement to earn it. Then, you can “spread” it too.

This is a viral achievement. Simply play an online game with someone who has this. Everyone who has played an online game has this, so join a game and get infected!

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/UP5SEq4=.jpgAiming Artist
20 G Hit the farthest target at least 3 times in 1 Launching Loathers game.

When the game starts keep your cannon aimed toward the left side of the shooting area. Wait for the smallest, and farthest target to pass through the left side It takes a little bit of timing but is pretty simple. In my first game I hit the back target about 6 times.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/UPyV-jM=.jpgDo You Feel Lucky, Piñata?
20 G Win a game of Short Fuse! without the Loather ever detonating in your hands.

You need a bit of luck for this one folks. A bomb can explode at any given time. Remember you need to win AND not have the bomb explode while you are holding it. You get points every time candy falls on top of your head while you are holding the bomb. Practice, practice, practice ;)

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/UP5hK7I=.jpgEaglair Eye Award
20 G Find and use all the shortcuts in the races.

Find all the shortcuts in all 14 races. An excellent guide from TKO xPitch Blak can be found HERE. (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=44035)
NOTE-Remember you can do all the races you unlock in practice mode.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/-oUl8w==.jpgGet to Know Everyone
20 G Finish the game in any place with each of the 8 characters.

Self Explanatory; to go faster choose the “Short” Gametype. You can do this offline, online or the combination of both

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/UPyf+IY=.jpgHost with the Most
20 G Host 3 games over Xbox LIVE.

Self Explanatory; just host 3 games online. You can have one other person and 2 AI in the game. If there is nobody online, make another account to boost with, or check the Achievement Trading thread (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=31912)

Boost with a friend for this and “Party Crasher”

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/UP1-ABU=.jpg Party Crasher
20 G Win 3 games over Xbox LIVE where you are not the host.

Join 3 games through quick or custom match and win them. You must have the most candy at the end of the game.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/UPxzGxs=.jpg Loaded Bases
20 G Hit the target 4 times in a row in Swing for the Stars.

This achievement I found very frustrating. My record is 3 in a row. After 3 in a row the target will start flying around like crazy. I really have no tip except PRACTICE! Good timing is needed as well.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/UPzZ28g=.jpgScenic Route
20 G Win a race without using any shortcuts.

You will probably get this your first race. Just follow the main path, and win. The first level only has two shortcuts, check the shortcut guide, and don’t use them.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/UP9nNgk=.jpgPacifist
20 G Win a race without using a Fiesta Missile, Colored Water Bomb, or Smoke Bomb.

You will probably get this one as well on your first race. To tell you the truth I didn’t use any power ups on my first race. If you want to be safe just don’t use and power-ups on your first race.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/+QbHvw==.jpgHi-yaaaa!
20 G Destroy 10 objects in a single race while playing as Petunia Pretztail.

Select Petunia Pretzail at the beginning of a game or practice race. Break 10 items, these include barrels, boxes, ice blocks etc… You will receive this at the end of the race. The first two races have a bunch of breakables.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/UPtpAJg=.jpg
Practice Makes Perfect
20 G Play the game for 5 hours.

No description really needed here. Simply play the game for 5 hours. If you like Mario Party, or want the full 1000 in this game you will playing for well more than 5 hours!
NOTE-It has been confirmed that you cannot sit in the menu for 5 hours. It must be total GAMEPLAY time, so it may take you 5 and a half hours due to menu screens

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/UP740n0=.jpg
Int'l Piñata of Mystery
20 G Use each power-up at least once in a single game.

This is pure luck. When you see the power ups make sure to grab two if you can, then quickly unload them and get ready for some more to come.

These are the power-ups:
-Fiesta Missile
-Smoke Bomb
-Color Water Bomb
-Buzzlegum Honey Trail
-Candy Boost
-Flutterscotch
-Fizzy Bloater
-Pollenator
-Rocket Pack

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/UPzq4tQ=.jpg
Don’t Be Left in the Dark
20 G Knock each of the other players out of the light in a single game of Spotlight Mania.

Very Simple. When you get into a game of Spotlight Mania use the shive move (B Button) to "shove" the other players out of the light. Just do it to each of your 3 opponents. You will know when they get knocked out when their candy level decreases, or when they are totally out of the light.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/UPxAIgc=.jpg
Sticky Feet
20 G Use the Buzzlegum Honey Slick power-up 10 times.

Pretty self explanatory here. The power-up picture is the picture of a bee's hive, throw ten of them and you will get your achievement.Just try to collect as many power ups as possible.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/+l7PVg==.jpg Rashberry Gluttony
30 Collect more than 1,000 pieces of candy while playing as Fergy Fudgehog.

This one is a bit tough. Start up a long game, and choose Fergy Fudgehog as your character. Both the candy you get for winning events AND all of the candy you collect in mini games goes toward the full 1,000. You need to do this in one game.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/UP11BqA=.jpg
Strike!
20 Get a strike in Bouncy Bowling.

This is very simple. When playing Bouncy Bowling chuck the ball to the pins in front of you. The first time I played this mini-game I got it. I really have no pointers on this achievement, as it takes no skill at all!

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/UPvw+Vc=.jpg Stuffed!
20 G Get more than 99 candies in any single Challenge Event.

Raisant Stomp seems the easiest mini game to get this. If you don't get in your first game, just go to practice mode and try for it again.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/UP+y6j0=.jpg Tricky Treats
20 G Destroy at least 25 pumpkins in a single game of Messy Mayhem.

Just keep mashing the A button, watch out for the other Ruffians as they can knock you over. If you have an extra controller plug it in, so you have less Ruffians to worry about.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/UPlICS0=.jpg Rainbow of Piñatas
20 G Play each of the 8 characters in 1 of their alternate colors.

To play in an alternate color you must have two people using the same character. Have either a friend online or another controller choose the pinata that you need the alternate color FIRST, then you choose, therefore you get the alternate color.
NOTE-When doing your first pinata for this achievement you will also get "Seeing Double."

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/-UTU1Q==.jpg Game Guru
15 G Win the game.

Win a total game. You will get candy depending on where you place. You will also get a bonus depending on which place you come in on the previous race. Simply have the most candy at the end of the game.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/-2XdYA==.jpg
Coulda Been a Contender
15 G Win 1 race.

Very simple. Win a race. This will come on your first one. Make good use of your power-ups and always hit the speed strips.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/UPl7MDE=.jpg Quick Like a Bunnycomb
15 G Hit 3 speed strips in a single race.

Speed strips are the fast conveyor belt type things you see on the ground. Just hit three of them in one race and the achievement will unlock. There are more then 3 on the first race.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/UPgCMW0=.jpg No Wipeouts
15 G Never fall down in a single race while playing as Franklin Fizzlybear.

Choose Franklin Fizzlybear before a game or practice race. Make sure to go slow and not get knocked over. The achievement will unlock at the end of the race.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/UP+B0yE=.jpg Classic Gamer Reward
10 G Enter the classic gamers code while on the START screen. For a hint, go right into your manual…

Enter the code: Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Start where it says "press start" when you enter the discIf the achievement does not unlock, press B and try it again.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/UPvDwEs=.jpg
Bear Hug
10 G Never use a power-up on Franklin Fizzlybear while playing as Florence Fizzlybear.

Make sure someone is playing as Franklin, you can put another controller in or do this online. While in any race make sure to not use ANY powerups that affect Florence. To be safe, just don't use any power ups.
NOTE-I am not sure if this in ALL races in a game, or just one race, please PM me if you can help.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/UP2g2pQ=.jpg Flutterscotch Quickness
10 G Use the Flutterscotch Wings power-up to overtake an opponent.

When you get the Flutterscotch power-up (the picture is the same as the achievement pic) wait ubtil you are right behind someone, and about to overtake them. Now deploy it, achievement unlocked!

10 G Play a game with someone who hasn’t unlocked a Challenge Event you have unlocked.

Simply play a game online, hopefully you will get someone new with the game, the best way to unlock challenge events is to play with someone who has them online. If you unlocked all of the challenge events and still cant get the achievement, make a dummy account with some 48 free trials.

5 G Never get hit in an entire contest by a Fiesta Missile while playing as Paulie Pretztail.

Choose Paulie Pretzail before a practice race or a full game. Chances are you will not get hit by a missile, but if you want to be safe, stay in last place so no one hits you.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/297/UP9eCaA=.jpg
So Awesome!
10 G You, the master of unlocking.

Unlock all of the Bonus content. You unlock content by playing and winning with certain pinatas, and doing certain activities. You can check your content on the main menu screen.

Helpful Tips:
-You can get all of the Mini Game and Race achievements in practice mode
-If you need online achievements but you can't find anyone to boost, make a dummy account with a 48 hour free trial
-Go slow on races when going for the shortcuts, If you put "Keep it close" on you will be fine.

Tips below thanks to David Creech and jab1981:

- The vast majority of the achievements are much easier if you use four controllers. Just tap the A button on the other three controllers every 15-20 seconds so they don't time out, and the other characters will just sit there. If they do time out, simply press Start and the game signs that controller back in seamlessly.

- The multiple controller approach makes it easy to stack the achievements, for example: Social Flutterscotch, Get to Know Everyone, and Rainbow of Pinatas can all be done together.

- The multiple controller approach makes winning 8 challenge events in a row simplistic (Chewnicorn Streak)

- You have a typo or two that need to be fixed.

- The Rashberry Gluttony one I am pretty sure you are incorrect on, so you might verify that one. I seem to recall I got it on my 3rd event the second time I played that character, which would indicate it carries over. However, don't take that as gospel as my memory is definitely flawed.

- The Snowball level is a good one for 99 candies in one Challenge Event also, so you might add that one in there. I got over 200...

- For Loaded Bases, make sure you are controller 1 and watch where the ball is in relation to the background when you hit it. Experiment to see where it needs to be to hit the target every time. I got 12 in a row my second attempt using this method.

- International Pinata of Mystery is quite possible to plan for, using the multiple controller method. The first race has several areas with lots of power ups together. Use your list to keep track of them, using and reloading as necessary. Just circle around and keep using the same ones as they regenerate. Important Note: The Rocket Pack generally does not spawn unless you are in 3rd or 4th place, so let the other controllers go idle after a while and zoom in front of you, then press start on them so they stop moving. The Rocket Pack should then spawn after a short time.

- All Your Games Are Belong To Us can be done in practice mode. Once all the other achievements are done, simply run through the list alphabetically playing any that you are not completely sure you have done.

-First I discovered this tactic for using multiple controllers and I haven't seen it posted anywhere. Instead of "rubber banding" the controllers or pushing a button every few seconds you can simply start an online game. The computer will only take over in an online game. If you create an online game and then quickly fill it in with guest accounts (they'll show up as XBoxLiveUserName (1), XBoxLiveUserName (2), etc...) the computer won't take over and you can take all the time you need to get your various achievements without worry.

-Secondly I can confirm that the Rashberry Gluttony can be done through multiple games. I played on long game and after being really disappointed at not getting the achievement, shut my console down. I popped it back in about a week later, started up a new long game and received the achievement on my second event. So it certainly can work over multiple games.

Great guide, thanks for this.

Btw for loaded bases I would usually wait until the ball glows bright red and hit it then, that seems to work everytime as long as you wait for the target to stop swinging first.

Sweet dude! lol. i actually have 3 controllers, but also 4 buzzers from scene it, and 3 guitar controllers as well as a drum set :p

yea, for the keep your friends close achieve I used it... the controller has to be active for a little bit in each game, so if it disappears just press A or start. If you are going for some of the achievements you may need to use the control stick though, like for "do you feel lucky pinata" achievement...

Have a friend come over! :o

Nice job, blackvista, I stuck this for you. Before it is ready to go up on the main page, however, a couple of items to fix:

- The vast majority of the achievements are much easier if you use four controllers. Just tap the A button on the other three controllers every 15-20 seconds so they don't time out, and the other characters will just sit there. If they do time out, simply press Start and the game signs that controller back in seamlessly.

- The Rashberry Gluttony one I am pretty sure you are incorrect on, so you might verify that one. I seem to recall I got it on my 3rd event the second time I played that character, which would indicate it carries over. However, don't take that as gospel as my memory is definitely flawed.

A couple things I can help on.

First I discovered this tactic for using multiple controllers and I haven't seen it posted anywhere. Instead of "rubber banding" the controllers or pushing a button every few seconds you can simply start an online game. The computer will only take over in an online game. If you create an online game and then quickly fill it in with guest accounts (they'll show up as XBoxLiveUserName (1), XBoxLiveUserName (2), etc...) the computer won't take over and you can take all the time you need to get your various achievements without worry.

Secondly I can confirm that the Rashberry Gluttony can be done through multiple games. I played on long game and after being really disappointed at not getting the achievement, shut my console down. I popped it back in about a week later, started up a new long game and received the achievement on my second event. So it certainly can work over multiple games.

Hope this helps! :) Really good guide other than that. Really helped me fill in most of the achieves.

Edit - Oh and to fill in the list of Challenge Events... there is one event that has ???????, The event would be "Can You Dig It?".

Thanks! I really don't have a lot of points in this game, because I really could't stand it, but I did know how to do all of the things the achievements called for... I am glad you liked it! :drunk

Excellent guide. I originally had trouble with the online achievements due to my NAT settings but I have fixed that and I now have all of the online achievements. The only one that gives me trouble is the rainbow pinata one because I only have 1 controller so I have to try and get the achievement online.

Your guide was very helpful. I only need 8 more achievments to get all of them.

I got this one online. it was hard because you have to let franklin ahead of you if you want to use a power up and you have to do it for the entire game not just 1 race but after a few tries i got it

10 G Play a game with someone who hasn’t unlocked a Challenge Event you have unlocked.

Simply play a game online, hopefully you will get someone new with the game, the best way to unlock challenge events is to play with someone who has them online. If you unlocked all of the challenge events and still cant get the achievement, make a dummy account with some 48 free trials.

Ok so for this , since me and a lot of other people are flustered and can't get it, When you say dummy accounts and get it how exactly do you mean. I have another account but when I got for the online it says there are two many people signed on....


I couldn't get this with the two accounts on one xbox method. I tried and tried. No dice. Played with a guy that just by chance jumped into my room while I was going for achievements, was tired of the 2nd controller timing out, and after 4 races the achievement just popped. Odd but I can't complain.

Rainbow of Piñatas
20 G Play each of the 8 characters in 1 of their alternate colors.

To play in an alternate color you must have two people using the same character. Have either a friend online or another controller choose the pinata that you need the alternate color FIRST, then you choose, therefore you get the alternate color.
NOTE-When doing your first pinata for this achievement you will also get "Seeing Double."

Can this be done in practice?

I think so, I wouldn't see why not, but you can always do it in regular, with 2 controllers....

Good guide thanx man, although i think it would have been better if you grouped it by ones that you could get in one event. It sucks having to flip thru pages trying to remember which other ones i can get in the same race.

just like to add that for bear hug, it is an entire game that you must not use a power up.(as in short:3 events;3 races)

also, by far the easiest to get 99 candies is 'Bump Bump Boom!'. i used this game to get the gluttony achievement, i averaged about 150 a game, so if you cant get 99 then you probably dont deserve the achievement;)
(sorry if any of this is a repeat, havent really looked through the thread, just the guide.)

20 G Hit the target 4 times in a row in Swing for the Stars.

This achievement I found very frustrating. My record is 3 in a row. After 3 in a row the target will start flying around like crazy. I really have no tip except PRACTICE! Good timing is needed as well.

This is not hard at all. The ball can raise and lower while you wait for the star to stop flying around. I got this on my first try.

Chewnicorn Streak
30 G Win 8 Challenge Events in a row.

Hard achievement, I recommend you boost for it. Just set up a long game, or a custom game online and win 8 challenge events in a row with a friend. Races do not count toward challenge events.
NOTE-While getting this you will unlock the achievements for 3 and 5 win streak


This is actually not hard at all either, i found out the easiest way to do it is turn on 4 controllers. If you dont have 4 regulars use a guitar or drums or whatever peripheral you have for other games. You wont really need to worry about controlling these (unless u are trying to do other achievements i.e. shoot all the guys with the missle) and while they will cycle out and the computer will take over if you keep all your controllers sitting by you can just press start and the human player will jump right back in. This makes it pretty easy to win 8 events in a row when 3/4 of the people are not even playing :)

I have some questions of my own and was wondering if someone could help me out.

MP game offline: I've done this achievement both in SP with 2 controllers plugged in and xbox live MP with just my other controller and no-one else, yet it hasn't given it too me. What am i doing wrong?

Gamers Code: i entered this at the start screen and it didn't give it to me, i've done it several time using both joysticks and the d-pad. What am i doing wrong?

Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks in advance! :)

Hey Parker,

I don't know why for some reason you can't get the multiplayer offline achievement "Keep Your Friends Close" as it should unlock after it is done. Just pick a short tournament and make sure to hit "A" button every once in a while on the second controller to keep the computer from taking over. Maybe the computer is in control at the end of the tournament when you do it therefore nullifying the "multiplayer" aspect of the achievement.

And for the "Classic Gamer Code" reward, you just might not be hitting the proper direction. It's easy to mess up on the 360's d-pad. Also, if it's anything like those old school games, the code needs to be entered relatively quickly. So look in the manual and memorize the code and practice it (they're not hard) and you should get it next time you try. Just keep trying till you get it.

Sorry can't be of more help.

if you use the four controller trick in a multiplayer game, and have them be your "gamertag" guest, then the computer never takes over for the whole game. Plus, after you're done with the 8 in a row and want to get through tournaments fast, you can make it a custom game with only TWO races.

Int'l Piñata of Mystery
20 G Use each power-up at least once in a single game.

This is pure luck. When you see the power ups make sure to grab two if you can, then quickly unload them and get ready for some more to come.

These are the power-ups:
-Fiesta Missile
-Smoke Bomb
-Color Water Bomb
-Buzzlegum Honey Trail
-Candy Boost
-Flutterscotch
-Fizzy Bloater
-Pollenator
-Rocket Pack


does this need to be in a single race? or over a game as the achievement states?

Edit: and thanks for the controller tips. Here I was thinking I only had two controllers, but I actually have:

1) Wireless Controller
2) Wired Controller
3) Guitar
4) Dance Mat

I got the Stuffed! achievement when I was attempting to get the Strike! achievement. It's really easy to knock down pins and I had around 120 candies.

Also, I don't seem to be unlocking tracks. What gives? There's barely anyone, if any, online so how am I supposed to unlock them? I keep doing the same tracks over and over.

Been attempting that gamer code over and over, not lately, no, but when I was playing the game, and still hadn't unlocked it, however, as one had stated here that the d-pad can screw up the directions....maybe that's what's causing it not to unlock....I mean, had the trouble with the d-pad doing fatalities on MK vs DCU.....

Quick question too, where in the game manuel, would the cheat code be? I uh, I can't figure that one out myself.

It's my understanding you can unlock them by playing in the practice menu with a friend. I still can't get # 6 (Disco Danger!) to unlock. I have all the rest. I can help you with the others if you have # 6.

I'm going to keep playing until I unlock this one. I have the game from gamefly right now. As soon as I'm done it is going to go back.

GT: Jedi ObiJoe

EDIT: I finally unlocked # 6 after playing Movin' Groovin' during a medium match. Not sure why it didn't unlock during the practice mode but it is finally there. Also had to play the Flickering Frenzy in practice to unlock "All Your Games...". Hope that helps. I

I'm sending this back in the mail tomorrow so I will not be able to help after tonight.

I could never get #14 challenge to unlock. Furious after trying for a few days, I went to my friend's house with my profile saved on a thumbdrive, played that event on practice and got my 1K.

So, for those who're having problems with unlocking these, find a friend who has the game you need and go disturb him/her.
