Welcome to AlphaJax, a scrabble like clone, that was first made during a Microsoft Competition and due popular indie success recently became a Xbox Live Title. Just like the popular board game and popular mobile game, Words with Friends. The objective is to spell out letters on the board using the tiles randomly given. The tiles in hand have various face values. The player with the most points at the end of the game from spelling out words, win.

Unpredictable5
Create a random game 

Simple, From the Main Menu, go to Create New Game, under Match Up, click "Random Game".

Bingo15
Clear your rack in a single move 

Clearing the rack consists of using all 7 of your tiles at any given time. 
[Can be completed with "Pass & Play."]

Primary10
Play your first 50-74 words 

"See Tertiary."

Secondary10
Play your first 75-99 words (1) 

"See Tertiary."

Tertiary10
Play your first 100+ words (4) 

These ones require that you play a word worth 50-74, 75-99, and 100 points. Using the all of the bonus spaces will be key to unlocking this. 
[Can be completed with "Pass & Play"]

Initial15
Win your first game 

Simple, win your first game.
[Can be completed with "Pass & Play"]
Start up a game with a local user then have them resign.

Squeaker10
Win a game by less than 5 points (2) 

At the end of the game, your points are tallied up. Win with your total score within 5 points of your opponent. 
[Can be completed with "Pass & Play"]
Start up a game with a Local User, keep your score within 5 then have the local user resign.

Compound5
Score a word multiplier and a letter multiplier with one word 

You must play a word across a DL/TL and a DW/TW in one shot. Ideally the best way to do this is to clear your rack for your first turn and aim for the DL and DW at the same shot.
[Can be completed with "Pass & Play"]

Compatriot10
Play a game with a friend (6) 

Again simple, From the Main Menu, go to Create New Game, under Friends, find and locate a friend in your friends list who has recently played the game. Use the following link to find someone to help out.

Proficiency5
Play a skill match game 

Again, also simple. From the Main Menu, go to Create New Game, under Match Up, click "Skill Match"

Replay5
Play a rematch 

Underneath the Create New Game option, you can swipe to the Rematch section and ask for a rematch for any recent player. You can request a re-match while in the middle of a match if in a hurry for the achievement.

Proposal10
Start 5 games by inviting other players (6) 

Underneath the Create New Game option, you can swipe to the Invite section and invite a player to play against. Just enter the gamertag (Friend or Random) and start the match. Can be done multiple times till it pops.

Inaugural10
Complete your first game with no tiles remaining 

At the end of a game, make sure that your rack is empty. Make use of spaces between letters for those last minute points with 2 letter words.
[Must be a 2 Player Game]

Duplicate5
Score 2 word multipliers with one word (7) 

This will probably be the hardest achievement in the game. You must play a word across 2 DW/TW in one shot.
[Can be completed with Pass & Play]

 

This one will take a bit of time and manipulation. In order to unlock the achievement, you will need to create a 9-letter word that will span across both 'DW' bonuses at the same time. You can do this in a local 'Pass & Play' game.

...so choose a word based on your starting letters from here:
http://www.becomeawordgameexpert.com/wordlists9.htm

You'll have to abuse the swap-tile feature, but if you keep doing that, the game will start giving you back the tiles you first swapped out. Just use what you don't want on another part of the board and hold or build part of the word you've selected, with the other tiles.

i.e,
I used the word 'RETENTION' spanning from the upper-right 'DW' to the lower-right 'DW'

- I started with a word that ended with an 'N'. The 'N' was positioned between the two 'DW's
- Next, I built my letter up to the word 'EN'
- After a few turns, to 'TEN'
- A bit more tile-swapping and built it up to 'TENT'
- Now held the remaining tiles needed until I could complete the entire word 'RETENTION'

Philologer10
Score 300-399 in a game 

"See Glossologist."

Decennial15
Play 10 games 

"See Jubilee."

Jubilee15
Play 50 games (1) 

Win or Lose, you must complete 50 games total. In some cases, to update your played games you need to register a loss. Once hitting a games played requirement, jump into a game and resign to get it to pop if your having issues. 
[Must be a 2 Player Game/Boostable]

Vocabulist10
Score 400-449 in a game 

"See Glossologist."

Glossologist15
Score 450+ in a game 

At the end of every game, your points are tallied up and scored. You'll need your score to surpass 299,399, and 450 points for these to pop.
[Can be completed with Pass & Play]

Lexicographer10
Get a rating of 1500+ (27) 

With every win or loss, your Rating will update accordingly. This will be the lengthiest achievement to get. With never losing a game you'll need over 200 games. Having your queue built up with games constantly and using a solver will make this easier. However, if you just keep at it, this will come over time.
[Must be a 2 Player Game/Boostable]
**Note Rejecting a Game Invite May Count as a loss.**
