Bowls is not at the Harbor it is at the lumberjacks house. The one at the Harbor is Checkers.

The bowls at the harbor most definitely does NOT count. I had done it before this bowls and was confused when I did not receive the achievement either.

To clarify, you MUST complete the bowls game specified in the video!

Ugh. I beat Achilles at Fanorana, but can't win Nine Men's Morris at the Inn. Been using both videos in this thread, & nothing. I've spent about 5 hours trying to do this, but no luck.

Edit: Wow! I got fed up & just started putting pieces randomly on the board... won with all 9 of my pieces on the board. CPU stalled it's last 3 pieces for like 10 minutes, but I still whooped it's ass!

Glad you got it! I still can't believe people have such trouble with Nine Men's Morris. I have never lost a game with the strategy I provided in my video.

Hey guys. I can't beat Morris for the life of me. I beat Fanorona in about 15 attempts. Morris is WAY harder than Fanorona. The AI never makes the same moves in my game that it does in the video. Even when I get 3 chips in a row, the AI always recovers to beat me. I think I'm 0/50 so far. Annoying shit

Tuzky is absolutely right. I had huge trouble beating the expert guy by trying to remove his pieces.

So in the placement phase of the game I focused purely on preventing him from getting threes in a row and placing my own pieces so that I could block him from making any moves when the movement phase began. Won the game without removing any of my opponent's pieces, and losing two of mine.

But thanks for the guide!

Finally unlocked this achievement! Fanorana was definitely the hardest, as you've really got to plan a few moves ahead. I had some trouble with Morris, because I kept failing to see the traps he was setting up.

Bowls took me two tries, it's really simple.

I posted this in some other thread, but i think this is the right place:

SPOILER ALERT:

Original Gamer Achievement:

Question: I completed all Homeland Quests and Achille`s Died..so i can only play against a random NPC. He is not playing like Achilles i have a hard time beating him and i am also not sure if the achievement will pop up when i play Fanorama against this random NPC instead of Achilles.

Does somebody else had the same problem? Maybe i should go to Sequenz 6 or 7 and play against Achilles Fanorama.

But i hope my data will be saved after beating him...i am confused.

EDIT: In which sequence you can play against him?

I sucked so bad at Fanorana I had an AI win the game for me. (got the idea from dawngalneryus at ps3trophies.org)

http://www.ics.uci.edu/~eppstein/180...ects/fanorona/

under the level tab set level to 1 1/2 to 10 seconds/move so you can see the moves.

Under options:
Computer is black, human plays white
white pieces start at the top
white makes the first move
multiple captures on first move ok.

Then in assassins creed I chose No to "do you want to start first?"

Every move Achilles made in Assassin Creed, I made in the Java Game, every move the Java game made, I made in Assassins Creed.

I won on my first attempt.

Did the same with nine men's Morris using:

http://www.kongregate.com/games/vensal/nine-mens-morris

Set it to the hardest difficulty.

Made sure not to accept a draw.

Only problem was the game wouldn't let me move the innkeepers pieces the same when he got down to 3 pieces left (though since I had only lost 1 piece I could manage that part by myself)

Tried it a hundred times and still nothing. Not even online AI can beat the game's AI. Not once in 4 hours of play has the computer emulated the moves in that video either. The AI is quite simply, perfect and thus unbeatable in my game.

I'm having the exact same issue as you pony. Looks like I might have to settle for 980 in this one.

If you watch the video, you see the AI plays like a complete retard at the start and that makes for a very easy win. In my attempts (now 5 hours long), he just doesn't make a single error, not one. I really want this out of the way, but it's just not beatable, simple as that. I've lost so much money retrying, it's ridiculous.

The guide came in handy for Fanorama, and I find Bowls pretty easy, but anything on Morris? Every time the opponent is down to three it is either a draw or he somehow manages to beat me.

Follow that and you'll win first game. The AI in that version of the game trounced the AC3 AI on first attempt. Thank Christ for that.

I'm still in shock so many people have trouble with Morris! I have yet to lose (and I played a couple of times) in Morris with my strategy.

Can't win Morris at all, Ponypoo's video above was a good effort as I got close, but the game never follows route.

Try my strategy one more time! Just make sure to set up a trap before he gets 3 chips so that you can automatically take out one of his 3 to stop his teleporting madness.

I got real close with your method, but just could not nail it. I ended up using this:

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=397281

Found the game on TA Guide and although Guru works sometimes, Master seems more consistent, I got 5 Morris wins in a row!

Good method too! I found Morris too easy to use a guide though, maybe I'm just really, really good at it? Not sure :P

All I know is that the AI in your game ain't nowhere near as good as the AI in mine if your video is anything to go by. Mine (and most other peoples for that matter) are just picture perfect and do not make a single error. The only way it was beatable was by using an AI that was actually smarter than the one in the game and I am still certain it all came down to luck.

Not sure. I found Morris infinitely easier than Fanorana with Achilles, but Bowls was still by far the easiest to get first try.
