Smile Easiest way to grind 500/1000 wins

EDITED METHOD - 5/7sec A GAME

The easiest/quickest way to get this achievement is to go to Challenge Mode and go to the puzzle on the 2nd row from the left, the second coin from the top.

You only need one coin to finish the puzzle and it only takes 1 second and once you place your chip quickly press the bottom right corner to skip the animation of the chips falling out and you will also press the "challenge passed!" sign so a game now takes 5-7 seconds with almost zero loading times. Once you hit 500/1000 games played you WILL need to play a Classic Game (do this vs easy AI) and the relevant achievement will unlock.

You need to win the challenge for it to count and there are only 3 variations of the puzzle so it's easy you cannot fail the challenge multiple times to get this method to work

NOTE - You can also grind the 50 wins using this method and when you get 50 wins on this challenge just go and win a match against easy AI on Classic Game.

Thanks for the information mate. I may pick this game up after all. The grind beforehand was 20+ hours, you seem to imply it only takes 3-5 hours to get 1000 games played?

I'd say it took 3 hours to get 500 games done so I'm looking at another 3 to boost another 500 games upto 1000 games played

Just a boring grind to be honest

Ok got my 1000 wins so gonna delete this now

I found a way to get the matches down to 5-7sec a game so have edited the method in the opening post

Still a total grind and the game seemed to crash every 15-20games so glad I can finally delete it now

Good luck guys =)

if u go into options and select expert go into challenege mode select 2nd row 3rd up the chalenge u place 1 chip to win do this 9 times then got to classic mode and play one game and win using th connect 4 solver and the achieve pops up. this also works for normal wins. if you do this method you will also get on the roll achieve. just placing one chip is easier than doing the whole game.

In the game settings you can turn of the camera panning which saves a few seconds every game.
