Monopoly Streets Achievement Guide

NOTE: I made this guide because the other guy got banned from this site. This is a real easy game and I know it helps to have a guide. I made the corrections and added more information for this guide. Please let me know if you have any ideas on how to make it better.


Overview:
- Estimated achievement difficulty: 3/10
- Offline: 31 (755 )
- Online: 9 (245 )
- Approximate amount of time to 1000 : 15+ Hours
- Minimum number of playthroughs needed:
- Number of missable achievements: 1 (Next Rung on the Ladder)
- Do cheat codes disable achievements: No cheats
- Does difficulty affect achievements: Yes (Needs a New Challenge Achievement you must beat 3 hard A.I)
- Glitchy achievements: No
- Unobtainable achievements: No
-Extra equipment needed: 4 controllers will make the game easier, but not 2 controllers will work

Winner 20 Win your first game of MONOPOLY Streets

Win a game of Monopoly in any game mode

Lucky Three 15 Rolled Triples

Play in speed die mode, you must roll either a 333, 222, 111 ext.

Building the Empire 25 Won 10 offline games

Win 10 games in any mode. You can use a multiple controllers and just declare bankruptcy 10 times.

No Ground Untouched 15 Player has built 100 houses

Build 100 houses in any game mode. You will get this during normal play. Use 4 controllers in a custom game. Deal out all the properties and when the game starts trade all the properties and money to your player. Build the houses and have the other controllers declare bankruptcy to win the match. Keep doing this until you get the achievement. You will get this achievement when working for the Subdivision achievement.

Expensive Property15 Acquire the most expensive property in the game

Purchase Boardwalk property in any game mode.

Eviction Notice 20 Replaced your houses with a hotel

On a monopoly color, build up your houses to a hotels on all three colors. The achievement will pop once the hotels are built.

Bypass Bail 5 Rolled doubles to get out of Jail for free

When you are in jail choose not to pay the bail to get out of jail. Choose the Roll for doubles option and roll a double. You get three (3) attempts at it, one (1) attempt per turn.

Needs a New Challenge 20 Successfully won against 3 hard AI

Start a game of Bull Market against 3 hard A.I. Make sure to buy the 2 light brown's and the 3 light blue properties. Buy whatever else you can get and make sure to leave yourself around 850$ after buying the 5 properties. If you can make sure that the other AI’s don’t get a monopoly on any of the properties. Once it’s your turn build hotels on the light blue properties. If you are lucky one if not all 3 of the A.I will land on your light blue hotels and pay you. They should not have a lot of money when the game starts so chances are you may even bankrupt a player early on. Once you get your rent put hotels on the brown properties and you should be able to ride out the 20 turns. I was able to get this the first try using this method, but it may take more depending on your luck.

Philanthropist 20 Completed a trade that gave another player a color group

Complete a trade with another player that would give you a monopoly in any color group.

Flea Market 20 Bought a property cheaply

Win an auction by bidding anything under the property value. When in a auction press the A Button and bid $10.00. Then press the B Button so the bid goes to $0. When the timer goes to zero the achievement will unlock.

Celebrating 10 Acquired your 75th property

Buy any 75 properties in any game mode on or offline. The achievement will pop up right when you purchase the 75th one.

Repeat Offender 10 Went to jail for the 3rd time in one game

This achievement can be done in any game mode. You must go to jail by any method 3 times. You can be sent to jail by rolling 3 doubles in a row or by the “Go to directly to jail” chance card.

Glad its not my Bill 25 Received 120 on a Utility rent

You need to own both utilities and have a player land on a utility. The achievement will pop when the player lands on your utility monopoly. You can set up a custom game and have all the properties dealt out and trade for the utilities.

Better than Free 20 Received more than 200 when landing on Free Parking

Set up a custom game. Tab over using the RB until you see the options to change the Free Parking. Set the amount to over 200 and save the custom setting. Start up a game with Speed Die with your custom game and land on free parking. The achievement will unlock after your turn is over.

I Like Trains 20 Own all the railroads

Own all the railroad's in any game mode.

Great Start 20 Someone pays you rent before your second turn

For this acheievement it will help if you win the dice roll and go first. Buy up any of the light blue or orange properties and hope that another player will land on your properties. This may take a few tries, but I was able to get this achievement my first game.

Market Inflator 25 Get an opponent to pay double the price during an auction

This achievement is best done with multiple controllers in bull market game type. When the auction starts have one of your other controllers keep biding until they cannot make anymore bids. The bar will be all the way to the top and will be twice what the property is worth. The achievement will unlock once the property is sold.

Now that is ROI 25 Collect more than a 1000 in rent

Build up your monopolies to hotels on any three (3) color groups. I got my achievement on the light blue properties. Building hotels on Bordwalk and Parkplace will also work but, other players do not land on those properties as often. Once someone lands on one of your properties and pay over $1000 in rent the achievement will unlock.

I'm Keeping this Card 10 Player paid to get out of Jail when they had a Get out of Jail Free Card

For this achievement you will need a “Get out of jail free card” by getting it from landing on Community Chest or trading it from another controller. Once you have your “Get out of jail free card” get yourself into jail by rolling doubles or get the “Go directly to jail…” card. When it is your turn again you will get the option to pay bail, roll a double, or use the get out of jail free card. Just pay the bail and get out of jail without using the card. The achievement will unlock as soon as you’re out of jail.

Tax Audit Nightmare!20 Paid 1200 in Taxes in one game

In one game you will need to pay $1200 in taxes. Set up a custom game and change the amount of the taxes paid when landing on the two tax spots on the board. Set the amount to $500 for texes paid. Set the starting amount to $2500 per player so that you or the other controllers do not go bankrupt before you have paid $1200 in taxes. Start the game of speed die and play until the achievement pops.


Subdivision 35 Player has built 500 houses

This achievement requires you to build 500 houses. All game modes count for this achievement in both on and offline games. Make this one of the last achievements that you go for because all the houses that you build in other games will count for this achievement. To make this go faster set up custom game and have all the properties dealt out prior to the start. Set the starting money at $2500 and trade all with all the other controllers their money and properties. Build all houses and no hotels to save on your money. Once all the houses are built have the other controllers declare bankruptcy to win the game. Keep doing this until you build 500 houses. You can check how many houses you built by going looking under the “Profile” menu at the main screen.

Mega-Tycoon 35 Finished a game with total worth greater than 9000

Just like the description says finish a game with a total worth greater than 9000. To do this own all the properties and build up the properties until your total worth is over 9000.

Quick Win 35 Won a game in under 20 minutes

Start up any game and have the other controllers declare bankruptcy. The achievement will unlock when the game ends.


Property Magnate 35 Own 3 color groups at once

Own 3 different colored monopolies at the same time.

This Plan is Better 35 Completed a trade that gave you a color group

Make a trade in a game another controller that will give you a monopoly. The achievement will unlock for you once this is completed.

Rolled a 15 15 Player rolled a 15

Start a game using the speed die option. During the game roll a 6, 6, and a 3. Try for this when going for your other achievements. This is pure luck that you get this achievement and may take some time to get it just keep trying and it will unlock.

Hotel Maximus 35 See the bank run out of hotels in a game with Official MONOPOLY rules

In a game with official monopoly rule setting every hotel (12) must be used by either you or the other player's. Have one player give the other all the properties and build up the purple, light blue, orange and red properties up to hotel's and the achievement will pop.

All Your Eggs in One Basket 20 The only properties owned are part of a single color group.

During a game you can only own one monopoly no other color groups. Once you have the one monopoly have the other players quit out and the achievement will unlock.

Next Rung on the Ladder 25 Bankrupted a higher ranked player

Set up a ranked game with a friend or a boosting partner. Make sure that they are a higher rank than you. Rank is based off of the leaderbords not the player rank. Once you are in the game have the person with a higher rank declare bankruptcy and the achievement will unlock at the end of the game.

If your friend is a higher rank than you make a ranked match and you declare bankruptcy until your friend has a higher rank. It may take a few attempts to get it so that they are a higher rank but it will count for the Taking Over The World achievement.

You can check you rank by going into Play on Xbox Live option. Then select leaderbords. Look at your overall rank and not the large number in the middle of the card.

Auctioneer 40 Player has won 50 online auctions

Get a friend or a boosting partner and play 4 games of bull market. Win two games each and the achievement will unlock at the end of the second game.

I'm just going to repost what I put in the other guide.


Only suggestion I have is to list properties by colour rather than name as different places have different basic board locations. UK uses the UK board layout for example, so we don't have 'boardwalk' and 'vermont', and some may not understand.

In truth it's not that hard to figure out, but you can't be sure that everyone will be able to, and guides, when written, need to be written so that someone with no clue can come to it and understand how to get all the achievements without struggling to understand (that's in the guide writing guide btw, not just spouting my opinion).

It's either use property colours rather than names, or you research every different locale used for the base board and write them ALL in....

Apart from that one thing, this is an excellent guide, kudos.


Also, the Rainbow achievement is either wrong or glitched. I've done it twice now, once Bull Market getting one of each colour and once in a normal game where I had at least one of each colour, and in most cases far more.

Edit: I got the Rainbow achievement finally, but I had to get every property of every colour for it to unlock.

There's a better way for 'needs a new challenge' as well, I've tried this a half dozen times now, and won every one.

Create a game with these custom rules.

Starting Cash: Maximum (2,500 on UK game)
Starting Properties: ALll
Starting Property Distribution: Random
Build Rules: Even
Houses Available: 8
Hotels Available: 4
Houses Per Hotel: 4
Selling Houses Percentage: 100
Mortgage Interest: 0
Income Tax: 0
Super Tax: 0
Free Parking Payout: Maximum (500 on UK game)
Max Turns In Jail: 4
Win Condition: Most Colour Groups
When # Players Bankrupt: 1
Game Ends In # Turns: 10

At the start of the game make sure you get the highest role to go first, if you don't restart until you do. With these rules all properties are divided up between all players. After your first role, but before you end your turn you need to do a couple of things
1) Acquire as many colour groups as possible (best way to do this is to trade for the cheapest properties and feel free to add random properties like, say, Greens and the Utilities to the mix to save your cash-obviously, if you already have 2 greens, keep them and just trade for the 3rd one instead)
2) Buy up all the available houses on your cheapest properties, if that means trading first to get a full colour group on one of the cheapest ones, then go for it. IMPORTANT, these rules only have 8 houses, so if you buy them all for the cheapest colour group (brown) you will use them all up, but DON'T turn them in to hotels. When you change them to hotels, all the houses go back to the bank. What you are trying to do is tie up all the houses so no other player can develop properties making any rent you pay really low.

By the end of your first turn, you should have at least 3 colour groups and all the houses tied up, if you can, try to hold some random extra properties from different colour groups. They can be used to stop other players getting groups or as bargaining chips later in the game if necessary.
In my first game I had the Browns, Light Blues and Oranges, as well as one Pink and I had all 8 houses on my Light Blue properties. The one important thing to make sure is that no one else has as many properties as you, when trading, distribute extra properties liberally around the 3 so no one person holds them all.
There are only 8 colour groups in the game, if you hold 3, hypothetically an AI player could hold 5, but it never happens. The properties are divided too evenly and nobody else gets houses and hotels to get high rent. In all my games I had 2 AI with 2 colours each, and one with 1. All they did for 10 turns was just move around the board, occasionally they would try to trade with each other, but it never worked out. At this point you can just ride out the 10 turns for victory. Also, if you haven't got it yet, if you fast forward everything, you'll easily get the achievement for winning a game in under 20 minutes too.

Thanks for the information. I did not know that the UK had a different board then the people in the US. Ill update the infromation. Also if you have the hotel maxumus achievement i could use a more detialed discription for that achievement.

Thank you. This was the last achievement I needed. I tried everything. I had always assumed it was Player level, or after 20 times of times of it not popping that it glitched on me. You are a savior. =D

For Hotels Maximus, there isn't really a lot you can do. You don't have to build all 12 hotels, just so long as they are all built, the Ai can build them too. Tbh it's just random luck because you have to use the official rules, so there's no way you can skip around it.

If you have 4 controllers, you can arrange it so you get light blue, orange, red and yellow properties, then build them all up to hotels gradually, but apart from that, there's no easy way to do it.

If you have 4 controllers, you can arrange it so you get light blue, orange, red and yellow properties, then build them all up to hotels gradually, but apart from that, there's no easy way to do it.

An "easy" way of doing this is with 4 controllers. Have 2 trade out all their cash to one player. Instead of buying when you land, go to an auction. That's an extra 20seconds + load times but it saves anywhere from $60 to $400 each time you win the auction at $0 (to do this, have person A be the winner of the auction... person A presses A then B and is now the highest bidder).

Not accounting for chance/community chest/taxes, this gives you a total of $4500 to start (+1500 from the remaining player when you get enough of the properties to build on).

So with $6,000 and the list below, you can plot out a way to get all 12 hotels. By the time you land on enough of the properties to buy 12 hotels, you should have enough money to buy them (depending on how many times you've passed go and landed on taxes, etc.)


Here is the total cost of getting to the hotels for each color group:

Brown -------- $0500 -- 2 hotels
Light Blue --- $0750 -- 3 hotels
Pink --------- $1500 -- 3 hotels
Orange ------- $1500 -- 3 hotels
Red ---------- $2250 -- 3 hotels
Yellow ------- $2250 -- 3 hotels
Green -------- $3000 -- 3 hotels
Blue --------- $2000 -- 2 hotels

Not accounting for chance/community chest/taxes, this gives you a total of $4500 to start (+1500 from the remaining player when you get enough of the properties to build on).

So with $6,000 and the list below, you can plot out a way to get all 12 hotels. By the time you land on enough of the properties to buy 12 hotels, you should have enough money to buy them (depending on how many times you've passed go and landed on taxes, etc.)


Here is the total cost of getting to the hotels for each color group:

Brown -------- $0500 -- 2 hotels
Light Blue --- $0750 -- 3 hotels
Pink --------- $1500 -- 3 hotels
Orange ------- $1500 -- 3 hotels
Red ---------- $2250 -- 3 hotels
Yellow ------- $2250 -- 3 hotels
Green -------- $3000 -- 3 hotels
Blue --------- $2000 -- 2 hotels

Is there a easy way to do this with only 2 controllers? I have tried for hours with out any luck. Can not get enough cash on both sides before one goes down. Close as I can get is 8 built.

Ok figured out a way to get Hotels Maximus with just two controllers.

Setup for two player using 2 controllers.

Have each property go to auction and buy for $1 each. Only buy build able properties for your sign in. Have the 2nd controller do the rail roads and utilities. Found out I needed this balance to not to cause the 2 controller to go bankrupt first.


You will have to past Go more then a few times to get enough properties. This is good will give you enough cash.

Once you and controller 2 has enough cash after you mortgage all your properties that you do not want to build on. Have player 2 trade you all their cash for one of your mortgaged properties. Then you just build all your hotels and you are done.

15 hours are you nuts??? You can do it in 4 or 5 long as the dice rolls go your way, plus just put it on triple dice with the speed die and stuff and the achs can be unlocked while your sleeping. My dummy account has almost 600g from just leaving it on for like 8 hours while i slept and the other achs i just got by trading properties setting rules in my favor whatever. Only ones that could take some time are the two dice luck ones but even my dummy got both those during the sleep idle and i got 1 of the 2. So maybe 15 if you left it on all night, but if you just sat there and did everything i cant see you not getting everything in 5 hours tops if the dice rolls fall your way.

I think 15+ hours is a huge over estimation. It took me 5 hours from starting to 985/1000 and I wasn't even as efficient as I could've been.

If you start out with the online stuff first and take care of some of the misc achievements while doing the online, you can have 985/1000 in 4 hours I would say. The ONLY achievement holding it up is the one for rolling a 15, since it's pure luck and like a 1 in 216 chance of rolling it. So if you're extremely unlucky I supposed that one achievement could take you 5-10 hours, but I doubt it.

I have the luxury of two turbo controllers so I just set up a speed dice game with zero for both of the taxes, with skip animation turned on, with all the properties distributed at the start. I mortgaged all the properties for both players, and now I'm simply turboing the A button on both controllers to just spam rolling the dice while I do other things. I've looked over and noticed it rolling a 14 several times already, so the 15 is just a matter of time.
