If you are trying to get the achievement you only have to beat Achilles at Fanorona.

the easiest way to beat 9 man morris , http://merrelles.com/English.html
All you have to do is set the difficulty up to 'Guru' in the web game and in AC 3 let the other guy go first and use his moves in the web game and in AC 3 you use the web game AI for your moves

Do you know in which sequence i can play against him during the storyline? Somebody said you can also beat the random guy.

I am trying to find a website to play Fanorona online...i have an idea ,hope this works, this way you can beat everybody on expert at Fanorona.

This is the only thing which left for me. I wish there would be a website or a video to win against this random guy in the mansion on expert difficulty.

I don`t know in which sequence in the story i can play against Achilles, does somebody know that?

I either have a glitch or I'm doing something wrong. In Morris whenever I can lay a piece down to complete a row of three the game doesn't let me. I press A and it highlights the space but Connor wont put a piece down. I then have to cancel it and put a piece somewhere else. Do I seriously have to start a new game just for this achievement?

Not a glitch. After choosing the space, you have to choose the piece you want to remove, as you have just made a mill.

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)
Thanks for posting those links. I needed a lot of help with Morris. Fanarona? I couldn't get that site to work to my liking, and no matter what the settings, I couldn't make out the computer's move. So I just tried to beat the game myself....and I DID! Woohoo! (Probably got lucky. Achilles must be half blind).

How did anyone win at Bowls? The terrible camera angles screw me over every single time - the balls aren't thrown where I think they're going because of the angle.

You can switch to a better view with the left bumper, which I did when the angles weren't helping me out. I found that trying to knock the opponent's balls away was usually a good strategy. Sometimes knocking the red ball around works, too. Learn how the balls bounce when they hit the ground and see if you can block the opponent's balls' "line of sight."

Yeah, tried that.My balls either miss outright or bounce over them.

Doesn't help that Terry throws perfect every single damn time.

Wow, give me the retard award. I just learned how to tighten up the throw radius. Durr....

That's like one of the guys from Rooster Teeth playing nearly the entirety of Crackdown before being finding out that you could TARGET your guns instead of manually aiming...

I might stop laughing in 5 or 6 minutes...

Wait until the end of the game and you'll get to play George Washington. Now there's a guy who cannot throw a miss. Terry is chickenfeed compared to him.

I suck at morris so incredibly badly. I can't even beat six men's morris on beginner for the thieves challenge of winning 500 gold in mini games. I'm so frustrated. The only thing keeping from completion is this damn game

Speaking of the "end game", I completed the story but didn't get this achievement (haven't been playing the mini-games). Considering what happens to a certain someone (not sure if I should say or not), would I need to play one of the other mini-games against someone else, or do they somehow come back to play?

The issue with the AI in Morris is that it has to allow you to win.

The sole objective of the AI is to not let you win. It does this either by beating you outright, or playing for a draw. It does this in all games... including Checkers and Fanorona.

The problem is that Morris is the only game where the AI can force you to accept a draw or lose, by circle-jerking his pieces around the board or back and forth, waiting for you to make the move that it won't make, because it's programmed not to lose.

This is because the rules in Morris are too fair. A draw can be considered a perfect game, as both players end up being in a position where they can only make one or two moves without ending the game in their opponent's favor. This means that if both players are equally skilled and playing carefully, the game will always end in a draw. Unlike Checkers or Fanorona where you can "force" your opponent into making bad moves.

Unless you have the foresight to see multiple moves forward in Morris, you're doomed to fail. Like me.

Make sure to switch to the tactical angle and move left or right to knock the opponents ball away. When you press to shoot the circle should go small and then big again. Press the shoot button again when the circle is at its smallest to produce the most accurate shot. The rest is just tactic, watch the video and see what I did!

I've been playing Fornona for at least two hours. The only good part is that I still have over 14K, which means at least 1400 more tries against motherfucker Achilles. He NEVER follows the video. I still don't full understand this game, and how I can go from 5 and 2 chips left to 1 vs 1. Even the Java AI link doesn't work cause I can't figure out how to make multiple moves in the same turn and get the same board.

More than the eye-gougingly annoying kids or endless glitches, this proves nobody actually play-tested the game. Who else besides the 10 programmers would WANT TO PLAY THIS SHIT??!!!!!!!!

You just need to remember the moves, after that you must clic on any spot in the same order.
PS if you're planning to go for "Completist", bid 100$ cause one of the Thieves tasks requires you to win 500$ in total, and the less you play, the best for your mental sanity (went through this... never more)

Probably a stupid question, but in Morris, would an offered draw by the AI count as a win towards the Original Gamer achievement? Grasping at straws as it's the last achievement I'm going for and have already won Bowls.

As far as I know, no.
