Get him to land on the income tax spot. If your net worth is over 12k you will get it on the first try. If it's less it will take you landing on it twice. The reason you are playing on speed die is because of the "Bus" Gie which allows you to choose where you want to land, making it easier to hit the 10% income tax spot.*

Doesn't hurt much 25

In an online game land on someone's Mediterranean avenue that has no upgrades. The opponent cannot also have Baltic Av., because the rent will double.

You can make a custom rule set for all the offline achievements.

Here's an example:
Great Start 20G
Someone pays you rent before your second turn.

2 human player game (2 controllers).
Make a custom rule set or use whichever rule set that deals out all the properties at the beginning of the game.
You will follow 1 of these 2 things depending on the dice roll that decides the turn order:

A. If player 1 goes 1st, just make sure that you trade $1 to the 2nd player for all his properties. When it's player 2's turn, you are 99.99% guaranteed to land on a property space.

B. If player 2 goes 1st, do the same trade giving player 1 all of player 2's property for $1, have player 1 take his turn and then it'll be back to player 2 again for another 99.99% guarantee landing on player 1 owned property.


Side note: If player 2 goes 1st by some chance lands on any property dealt to player 1 at the beginning of the game, then scratch all the above.

Added it into my notes thank you,

If anyone has a good re-write for any achievement, or has a video to contribute or thinks something needs to be corrected feel free to let me know.

Guides have a 30 day waiting period (so...Dec. 3rd I think for this game) before they should be submitted to be added to the main site. This ensures that other people can make suggestions or new methods can be discovered or unearthed. You (or anyone) can PM if they are confused on the submission process (but go to the submit forum first and read what The Pants Party has already written down).

If you have the time, I would make an extra space between the achievement title and the guide description, and if possible, for the ease of adding it to the main site, remove the italics. The actual content of each description is solid though and I will be using personally when I rent this next week. Great start!

Cool

Great guide so far!

A quick way to get "Mega-Tycoon" and "So Big and Shiny" is start a 4-player game, of Speed Die or Offical Rules on City Board. With 4 players there is already 10k worth of $ in play... all you have to do is make some cheap trades and remember to only puchase properties via auction. After trading and getting your Total Worth to $10k+ have the other three players declare bankruptcy. MT will pop when you win and SBaS will pop when you get your $10k.

*Only stipulation is you need 4 controllers*

I'm sure using 4-controllers will make many of the other achievements easier as well though.

Also a tip with auction purchases is... push the bid to something(anything) on the player you want to get the property. Then just put it back down to $0 and you dont have to spend one red cent worth.

Go into New Rules (hit X at rule select).
Hit LB/RB to get to "Board and Property Rules" then down to "Free Parking Payout".
Set amount higher than $200.
Save custom ruleset and use it.

There are lots of little rules you can alter in here to make most of the achievements REALLY easy.

I would also set the Speed Die to ON. The speed die will allow you to place your token on any square if you roll triples -or- if you get the bus symbol you can denote how you want to use your dice. Not to mention there a few other achievements gained by using them as well.

'So Big and Shiny' can be done using custom setting. 2500 each and all properties randomly distibuted at the start. Some cheap trading gets it in a minute.

It should also be noted that 'Needs a New Challenge' can still be gotten by reloading till they land on your hotels. Obviously after using the excellent initial tactic mentioned already.

onlines need 2 games im guessing? You can't cheat it into being an xbl game by making it you vs another gold account on the same console correct? Cause i know a couple of the other board game xbox retail or arcades you could have to accounts signed in and it looks for an online game and if it finds noone it starts with just the two of you

Not that I know you can't use two accounts on the same xbox to get the online achievements. If so I should really finish this game to 100%. Only missing online achievements and that blasted roll 15. But I won't be working on this game till Dec when I go home for the holidays.

Hmmm nifty the guide writer got banned. Will be great to have a completed guide up on the site. What is posted above could really be edited and incorporate the 'custom settings' schemes I was mentioning. ...if only I had the time to write it up. Will work on it in Dec if nothing is going by then.

Glad its not my Bill 25
Received 120 on a Utility rent
You must own both utilities. A player must land on your utility by rolling a 12.
*Set a speed die game, have player1 own all the properties except the 2 utilities so that every time you roll a mr.monopoly die you land on his utility. Have player2 roll for double 6's. As soon as he either hits double 6's onto the utility or hits double 6's with a mr.monopoly die anywhere on the board, the achievement will pop.*

Can some one explain this for me a little better?

Pretty much, own Water Works and Electric Company, and a person that lands on it has to roll a 12

So I'm player 1, I have the utilities. Player 2 has everything else. If he gets double sixes with the Mr. Monopoly and lands on my utilities, I get the achievement. I think you might have explained it with the players backwards.

Btw this achievement is driving me crazy. I can't get the one who's supposed to land on the utilites to get double sixes w/ Mr. Monopoly. *pulls hair out*

Found a quick way to land on any specific property.
Play a custom 2player game using the Speed Die and have all properties handed out at the beginning. Then trade properties till you have them just as you need (such as Mediterranean to your opponent, Utilities to yourself etc). Mortgage ALL properties BUT the one you need the renter to land on. Now when that player gets a MrMonopoly on the red Speed Die it will advance to that specific property.

This is useful for the achievements...
Doesn't Hurt Much
Concierge Service
Glad it's not my Bill
Now that is ROI

PS- the Speed Die also helps because in the event you roll triples you're allowed to move to any square on the board

Ok, I just played a round with 3 AI players and was able to buy up ALL of the hotels but didn't get the Hotels Maximus achievement??? Two of the AI players were bankrupt but the 3rd was still in the game along with myself. I had hotels on BW, PP, all 3 reds, all three light blue, both dark brown, and two of the dark purple; the remaining had 4 houses. What am I missing? Why didn't the achievement pop? According to the description you only need to see the bank sell out of hotels, which I did? Confused, has anyone else unlocked this during an actual gameplay? Thanks.

Anyways i'll clean it up this weekend. Feel free to leave me any questions.
Great effort for an initial guide, keep up the good work! If you have any additional information for the Roadmap Overview, it would be really helpful for people interested in the game. I do not own it yet, but have been considering the purchase.

Better than Free 20
Received more than 200 when landing on Free Parking
Play a game in fast deal mode and land on free parking


I dont know about anyone else but i tried this achievemnet in fast deal mode and after the length of time it took me to land on free parking was really dissapointed to find the achievement didnt pop. problem is it says to recieve MORE than 200 when landing on free parking and fast deal doesnt give more, just 200 and it isnt enough. the easiest way to do this is just to create a custom game and change the free parking amount to 500 (also it doesnt work on the board games either, just the streets)

Building the Empire 25
Won 10 offline games
Win 10 games in any mode. You can use a second controller and just declare bankruptcy 10 times.

This achievement can not be done in any mode, I played fast deal, speed die and classic bored and it didnt count any of them, it has to be done in official monopoly streets mode, though you can just do as said and use a sencond controller to keep declaring bankruptcy on the second player 10 times
