Viva Pinata - Party animals is a fun party game, where you race your pinatas around several tracks, picking up powerups and such, to gain points. After every race you play a mini game to get more points. You can have 3, 5 or 7 races in each tournament and whoever has the most points at the end wins! The achievements are relatively easy but pretty time consuming as you have to do multiple playthroughs with easy character.

Please note that if you don't have a second controller you will have to do a lot more races and events to unlock these achievements. Same principal, but much more replaying games.


Before you do anything, as soon as you get to the start screen, hit the following sequence: . This will instantly unlock the Classic Gamer Reward achievement.

Once you have this you can start playing. You need to finish a game in first place with all 8 characters to achieve Social Flutterscotch, when you get this you will also get Get to Know Everyone for finishing anywhere with each character. You will also get Game Guru after your first win and Coulda Been A Contender after you win your first race. You can get this quicker by grabbing a second controller. You can choose 'play online', create a custom game with 2 races and 1 challenge event. This is instead of doing 3 races with three challenges after. You can sign in with a second controller as a guest and race to victory. Rinse until it is done with each character. You will pick up Host with the Most after you have done three games.
When you are a male character, select all the other characters as male also, and you will get Boy Band. Do the same but with female characters to get Girl Power.

You can also get the character specific achievements while going for these:

Petunia Pretzel - Hi-yaaah! Break 10 objects during a race
Franklin Fizzybear - No Wipeouts Don't fall down in any race
Florence Fizzybear - Bear Hug Select Franklin Fizzbear as an opponent and don't use any weapons in a race
Francine Fudgedog - Mama's Boy Select Fergy Fudgehog as an opponent and lose to him
Hailey Horstachio - Scene Stealer Select Hudson Horstacion as an opponent and beat him
Paulie Pretztail - Think Fast - Don't get hit with a missile. If you boost this you will get it when you win the game

For your last one, make sure one of these you set it to 7 races, so you will unlock all of the reverse tracks. Once you have this done you can go into practice mode and just race around the reverse variations. You don't have to win, just to finish. You will unlock Redhot Racer when this is done.

While playing through to get your wins, you will almost certainly unlock King Roario Award, Chewnicorn Steak, Kittyfloss Steak, Professor Pestor, Scenic Route, Pacifist, Sticky Feet, Quick Like A Bunnycomb and Flutterscotch Quickness. If you don't have these, keep on replaying games until they unlock.

The minigames you play during events are random, out of a pool of 50. Look out for the following events as you can get the related achievements during them:

Dodgeball - Artful Dodger
Launching Loafers - Aiming Artist
Short Fuse - Do You Feel Lucky, Pinata?
Swing for the Stars - Loaded Bases
Spotlight Mania - Don't Be Left in the Dark
Bouncy Bowling - Strike
Raisin Stomp - Squished, Stuffed (Easiest place to get)
Messy Mayhem - Tricky Treats
Burps Ahoy - Gassy Gusts


Use the achievement trading thread found here to find a boosting partner. You will need to find someone with the viral achievement to get Catch It If You Can. As soon as you go into or get someone in your first lobby you will unlock Making Friends. Make sure you win 3 games when you are not hosting to pick up Party Crasher. The the achievement that can be glitchy is Share and Share Alike. This is for playing a minigame with someone who has not unlocked that particular game. This thread has some useful theories for anyone who is having trouble.

Mop Up

Use a second controller or a boosting partner, pick the same character as your partner/controller, making sure you pick your character second. This will give you the alternative 'costume'. Do an proper race (practice does not count) and you will unlock Seeing Double after you finish with your first character. You will get Rainbow Pinata once you have done everyone. Start a 4 player race with everyone playing as Hudson Horstacho to unlock Popularity Contest. You can do this with your boosting partner if you don't have 4 controllers.
Choose 'Play At Home' to play an offline multiplayer game (2 or more controllers) to get Keep Your Freinds Close.
Chances are you will have unlocked Megaton, Int'l Pinata of Mystery if not do a few more races to get them.
If you don't have Eaglair Eye by now, use this guide to fly through the courses and use all the shortcuts.
You may need to do some more events with Ferdy Fudgehog to unlock Rashberry Gluttony.
While doing these games you will unlock minigames as you play through. They are totally random, but you are working to unlock 50 in total. You can check how many you have left to do by going into practice mode. You will eventually unlock All Your Game Are Belong To Us.
You will have probably played for over 5 hours by now, if not continue playing to get Practice Makes Perfect. Once everything else is unlocked you will get So Awesome.

Overall this game is a bit of a grind but none of the achievements should give you much trouble with exception of the glitchy one. Some of the minigames are pretty cool but it is pot luck which one you get. Easy 1000 but will take longer than you would like!
