Monopoly Streets is a fun take on the monopoly game we all know and love. It is a relatively easy 1000, with a few achievements relying on pure luck. However I cannot stress how much easier this game is with 4 controllers as a lot of the luck is taken away and you can make stuff happen on your own that could potentially take you a long time when relying on the CPU.
Also please note that the UK and US versions will have different names for the properties.
First of all, find yourself a boosting partner, use the achievement trading thread found here. Work together to unlock I can do this without Houses, Taking Over the World, Doesn't Hurt Much, Plays Nicely with Others, Better Luck Next Time, I Want A Rematch, and How We Played Back in my Day.
You will work towards other achievements when playing online and may get lucky with some of the dice rolling achievements.
Playing through/Mopping Up
Hopefully you will have unlocked a few of the other achievements while playing online, if not don't worry. Most of these achievements can be unlocked very easy if you have 4 controllers, have a look at the individual achievement guides to see what needs to be done. You will have to play on the Monopoly City board at least once in order to get the So Big and Shiny achievement.
Keep on playing games and you will be able to pick your way through the rest of the achievements.
The only ones that may elude you at the end may be Lucky Three and Rolled a 15, but keep playing speed die mode, and they will come eventually.
Overall a pretty fun and easy 1000 and a great game for families or parties.

*Most of the work on this achievement guide was done by Soldier 4 I AM. I have merely tidied it up a bit and added a few bits!*
Winner 20 Win your first game of MONOPOLY Streets
Win a game of Monopoly in any game mode. This will come naturally.
Lucky Three 15 Rolled Triples
Play in speed die mode, you must roll either a 333, 222, 111. Just keep playing and this will come naturally.
Building the Empire 25 Won 10 offline games
Win 10 games in any mode. You can use a multiple controllers and just declare bankruptcy 10 times.
No Ground Untouched 15 Player has built 100 houses
Build 100 houses in any game mode. You will get this during normal play. Use 4 controllers in a custom game. Deal out all the properties and when the game starts trade all the properties and money to your player. Build the houses and have the other controllers declare bankruptcy to win the match. Keep doing this until you get the achievement. You will get this achievement when working for the Subdivision achievement.
Expensive Property15 Acquire the most expensive property in the game
Purchase Boardwalk property in any game mode.
Eviction Notice 20 Replaced your houses with a hotel
On a monopoly colour, build up your houses to a hotels on all three colors. The achievement will pop once the hotels are built. Much easier to do on the cheaper properties.
Bypass Bail 5 Rolled doubles to get out of Jail for free
When you are in jail choose not to pay the bail to get out of jail. Choose the Roll for doubles option and roll a double. You get three (3) attempts at it, one (1) attempt per turn. Not too difficult as doubles come in quite often.
Needs a New Challenge 20 Successfully won against 3 hard AI
Create a game with these custom rules.
Starting Cash: Maximum (2,500 on UK game)
Starting Properties: ALll
Starting Property Distribution: Random
Build Rules: Even
Houses Available: 8
Hotels Available: 4
Houses Per Hotel: 4
Selling Houses Percentage: 100
Mortgage Interest: 0
Income Tax: 0
Super Tax: 0
Free Parking Payout: Maximum (500 on UK game)
Max Turns In Jail: 4
Win Condition: Most Colour Groups
When # Players Bankrupt: 1
Game Ends In # Turns: 10
At the start of the game make sure you get the highest role to go first, if you don't restart until you do. With these rules all properties are divided up between all players. After your first role, but before you end your turn you need to do a couple of things
1) Acquire as many colour groups as possible (best way to do this is to trade for the cheapest properties and feel free to add random properties like, say, Greens and the Utilities to the mix to save your cash-obviously, if you already have 2 greens, keep them and just trade for the 3rd one instead)
2) Buy up all the available houses on your cheapest properties, if that means trading first to get a full colour group on one of the cheapest ones, then go for it. IMPORTANT, these rules only have 8 houses, so if you buy them all for the cheapest colour group (brown) you will use them all up, but DON'T turn them in to hotels. When you change them to hotels, all the houses go back to the bank. What you are trying to do is tie up all the houses so no other player can develop properties making any rent you pay really low.
By the end of your first turn, you should have at least 3 colour groups and all the houses tied up, if you can, try to hold some random extra properties from different colour groups. They can be used to stop other players getting groups or as bargaining chips later in the game if necessary.
In my first game I had the Browns, Light Blues and Oranges, as well as one Pink and I had all 8 houses on my Light Blue properties. The one important thing to make sure is that no one else has as many properties as you, when trading, distribute extra properties liberally around the 3 so no one person holds them all.
There are only 8 colour groups in the game, if you hold 3, hypothetically an AI player could hold 5, but it never happens. The properties are divided too evenly and nobody else gets houses and hotels to get high rent. In all my games I had 2 AI with 2 colours each, and one with 1. All they did for 10 turns was just move around the board, occasionally they would try to trade with each other, but it never worked out. At this point you can just ride out the 10 turns for victory. Also, if you haven't got it yet, if you fast forward everything, you'll easily get the achievement for winning a game in under 20 minutes too.
Philanthropist 20 Completed a trade that gave another player a color group
Complete a trade with another player that would give you a monopoly (all 2/3 properties) in any color group.
Flea Market 20 Bought a property cheaply
Win an auction by bidding anything under the property value. When in a auction press the A Button and bid $10.00. Then press the B Button so the bid goes to $0. When the timer goes to zero the achievement will unlock.

Celebrating 10 Acquired your 75th property
Buy any 75 properties in any game mode on or offline. The achievement will pop up right when you purchase the 75th one.
Repeat Offender 10 Went to jail for the 3rd time in one game
This achievement can be done in any game mode. You must go to jail by any method 3 times. You can be sent to jail by rolling 3 doubles in a row or by the “Go to directly to jail” chance card.
Glad its not my Bill 25 Received 120 on a Utility rent
You need to own both utilities and have a player land on a utility. The achievement will pop when the player lands on your utility monopoly. You can set up a custom game and have all the properties dealt out and trade for the utilities.
Better than Free 20 Received more than 200 when landing on Free Parking
Set up a custom game. Tab over using the RB until you see the options to change the Free Parking. Set the amount to over 200 and save the custom setting. Start up a game with Speed Die with your custom game and land on free parking. The achievement will unlock after your turn is over.
I Like Trains 20 Own all the railroads
Own all the railroad's in any game mode.
Great Start 20 Someone pays you rent before your second turn
For this achievement it will help if you win the dice roll and go first. Buy up any of the light blue or orange properties and hope that another player will land on your properties. This may take a few tries, but I was able to get this achievement my first game.
Market Inflator 25 Get an opponent to pay double the price during an auction
This achievement is best done with multiple controllers in bull market game type. When the auction starts have one of your other controllers keep biding until they cannot make anymore bids. The bar will be all the way to the top and will be twice what the property is worth. The achievement will unlock once the property is sold.
Now that is ROI 25 Collect more than a 1000 in rent
Build up your monopolies to hotels on any three (3) color groups. I got my achievement on the light blue properties. Building hotels on Boardwalk and Parkplace will also work but, other players do not land on those properties as often. Once someone lands on one of your properties and pay over $1000 in rent the achievement will unlock.
I'm Keeping this Card 10 Player paid to get out of Jail when they had a Get out of Jail Free Card
For this achievement you will need a “Get out of jail free card” by getting it from landing on Community Chest or trading it from another controller. Once you have your “Get out of jail free card” get yourself into jail by rolling doubles or get the “Go directly to jail…” card. When it is your turn again you will get the option to pay bail, roll a double, or use the get out of jail free card. Just pay the bail and get out of jail without using the card. The achievement will unlock as soon as you’re out of jail.
Tax Audit Nightmare!20 Paid 1200 in Taxes in one game
In one game you will need to pay $1200 in taxes. Set up a custom game and change the amount of the taxes paid when landing on the two tax spots on the board. Set the amount to $500 for taxes paid. Set the starting amount to $2500 per player so that you or the other controllers do not go bankrupt before you have paid $1200 in taxes. Start the game of speed die and play until the achievement pops.
Subdivision 35 Player has built 500 houses
This achievement requires you to build 500 houses. All game modes count for this achievement in both on and offline games. Make this one of the last achievements that you go for because all the houses that you build in other games will count for this achievement. To make this go faster set up custom game and have all the properties dealt out prior to the start. Set the starting money at $2500 and trade all with all the other controllers their money and properties. Build all houses and no hotels to save on your money. Once all the houses are built have the other controllers declare bankruptcy to win the game. Keep doing this until you build 500 houses. You can check how many houses you built by going looking under the “Profile” menu at the main screen.

This Plan is Better 35 Completed a trade that gave you a color group

Rolled a 15 15 Player rolled a 15
Start a game using the speed die option. During the game roll a 6, 6, and a 3. Try for this when going for your other achievements. This is pure luck that you get this achievement and may take some time to get it just keep trying and it will unlock.
Hotel Maximus 35 See the bank run out of hotels in a game with Official MONOPOLY rules
An "easy" way of doing this is with 4 controllers. Have 2 trade out all their cash to one player. Instead of buying when you land, go to an auction. That's an extra 20seconds + load times but it saves anywhere from $60 to $400 each time you win the auction at $0 (to do this, have person A be the winner of the auction... person A presses A then B and is now the highest bidder).
Not accounting for chance/community chest/taxes, this gives you a total of $4500 to start (+1500 from the remaining player when you get enough of the properties to build on).
So with $6,000 and the list below, you can plot out a way to get all 12 hotels. By the time you land on enough of the properties to buy 12 hotels, you should have enough money to buy them (depending on how many times you've passed go and landed on taxes, etc.)
Here is the total cost of getting to the hotels for each color group:
Brown -------- $0500 -- 2 hotels
Light Blue --- $0750 -- 3 hotels
Pink --------- $1500 -- 3 hotels
Orange ------- $1500 -- 3 hotels
Red ---------- $2250 -- 3 hotels
Yellow ------- $2250 -- 3 hotels
Green -------- $3000 -- 3 hotels
Blue --------- $2000 -- 2 hotels
All Your Eggs in One Basket 20 The only properties owned are part of a single color group.

out and the achievement will unlock.
So Big and Shiny 50 Get the largest upgrade to your corporate HQ

Concierge Service 50 Provide the best Hotel Service on the most expensive property without a player going bankrupt
Build Boardwalk and Park Place into hotel's and have a player land on the Boardwalk portion of the hotel without going bankrupt. The other player can mortgage all of his properties, but they need to survive until their next turn.

If your friend is a higher rank than you make a ranked match and you declare bankruptcy until your friend has a higher rank. It may take a few attempts to get it so that they are a higher rank but it will count for the Taking Over The World achievement.

You need to augment your achievement guide to note that there is 1 glitched achievement. The "Hotels Maximus" achievement will not unlock, if you quit your game at ANY point and continue from a saved game. You MUST play from the start of the game without quitting, until you get the achievement... otherwise the achievement will not unlock!
