It happened to me about three times.

Finally got it today, though.

Dude thanks for this. Worked after about 10 rolls.

This is purely random, no difference stacking them than there is with just chucking them anywhere.

Dumb luck achievements... hate it

It's starting to feel like I've spent more time playing this stupid mini game than the actual game.

Got it on 70th try. I consider it being lucky. I, of course didn't use the video.

During the 70 tries the opponent quit 10 times.

Damn little dwarf keeps resigning when I try to roll for the other 1-2 dice, even if I keep the bets low. Currently on my 65th attempt and counting. This is pure luck though even if it feels the stacking helps.

Just got it now. Took over 200 rolls, and it's all down to luck. Video method shouldn't be promoted as guaranteed to work when it doesn't.

This shit is fucked up. For the past TWO HOURS I have been trying to get this, on most of my rolls I can now get 4 of a kind, but even if I get just 3 of a kind the AI quits EVERY TIME.

FINALLY GOT THE DAMN ACHIEVEMENT!!! I was getting stressed using the "east method" (Which is still luck based and takes more time to set up btw) so i just started rolling the dice. While watching some youtube videos and listening to music and the achievement popped up soon enough.

I think it's best to do something else while you try getting this achievement or else you'll rage like what i did a couple times lol

It doesn't matter if you use the method in this thread or not. It is totally based on luck, nothing more. People who got it in a dozen rolls or less by following the video got lucky. It's a total waste of time to drag the dice to the corner because it's random luck.

You don't get this achievement quickly due to using the stack method, you just had some really good luck.

Yeah the video in the OP is bullshit, it's purely based on luck. How do you guys know how many rolls it took you? Are you actually counting or is there a stats page somewhere that I don't know about?

In the lower right corner of the screen, you can see how many games you have won and lost to a character, as you are playing against him

Agreed i got it after about 3-4 hours (seriously)!! i was about to give in then got 5 1s by PURE LUCK the video way didnt work at all!! my advice is just keep rolling the normal way dont follow the video you will get it eventually and yes it does get boring but perseverance will pay off!!

Yeah, this glitch doesn't work at all, was just luck that the dice are lined up in the beginning.. I was trying this "glitch" for about an hour or so, and was getting frustrated so I started reading through all the replies to this, ended up just saying fuck dragging them over and just to toss the damned things.. Got it my very first try doing it the normal way, so fuck doing this method, just do it the normal way, much faster then dragging them over and trying to get them to land on top of each other.

Here is something that helped me loads. The AI will resign if they are classed as high ranked Dice players. My way around this was to only play with the three guys at the table in the basement of the Inn in Act 1. They are all scrubs and won't quit if you get a good first roll. They also have the dialog choice of playing Dice as their first option so you can hammer the A button to get back into the mini game each time.

For me, this helped much more than the initial posters method. Thanks Roy4le, achievement unlocked... eventually

Thanks for the videos. To be honest, I have NO clue how to even play this "poker" game. I have no idea what the symbols mean and can't seem to find anything explaining it. Hopefully, this video will help me get it.

It's very simple. Don't look at the symbols, look at the Roman numerals in the symbols, they're all that matter.
The winning combinations are explained here:
http://witcher.wikia.com/wiki/Dice_p..._The_Witcher_2

This achievement is driving me nuts. I played dice for two hours last night and won 3000 orens, but still haven't got a Five-of-a-kind. I got it once during the Poker Face quest and won but it didn't count for the achievement.

The entry level players still quit on me. Whatever the level of player I found they will still quit if you roll 3 of a kind or better unless they have a good hand. If you roll a natural 5 of a kind they are going to quit unless by some fluke they also roll 5 of a kind.

Not sure if this occurs if you get too far into the game or what, but I never had the three guys in the Flotsam inn basement resign on me ever. Baring in mind I never got a natural 5 of a kind, but I did get many 3 of a kinds and around five 4 of a kinds before I eventually got it. I hadn't got past the Kayran at this point and I was on the latest patch too.
