Step 0: Team-up with a couple other players:
[x360a would like to thank Arsenic 17 for this Roadmap]
|Complete a daily crossword.|
See "Crossword Addiction."
|Complete ten daily crosswords.|
These achievements require that you finish a total of 10 daily crossword puzzles. Daily crosswords are in their own category and only one can be completed per day. So at a minimum, this game will take ten days to complete because of this achievement alone. As of now, exploiting the clock on your PC is not an option because daily crosswords are not available offline. Each day, join or create the new daily puzzle (make it Public) and complete it or exit immediately. As long as you come back and click on it once it was completed, it will count. There is no visible counter for this achievement. Just continue completing daily puzzle until it unlocks, or keep track yourself.
|The Casual Crew||10|
|Complete a casual crossword with four players.|
See "Pro Party."
|The Standard Squad||10|
|Complete a standard crossword with four players.|
See "Pro Party."
|The Pro Party||10|
|Complete a pro crossword with four players.|
These achievements require that you finish a single puzzle of each type (casual, standard, and pro) with 3 other players. Initially, only the casual game mode will be available for your created games. You must purchase standard and pro mode with tokens earned in-game in order to create those game modes. However, this is not necessarily needed. You can join another player's game regardless if you purchased those game modes yourself.
|A Huge Help From My Friends||10|
|Complete a crossword with at least three other members of your team.|
This achievement requires that you complete a crossword puzzle with at least three other members of your team. Create a private game and invite your team members. They do not all need to join at the same time, be there for the entire puzzle, or even when the puzzle is completed. As long as they are shown below the puzzle in the players list you will unlock the achievement when it is completed.
|Earn a Platinum medal with your own team.|
This achievement requires that you earn a Platinum medal and will be the most time consuming and "grindy" achievement in the game. Before we get into it, just note that this does not require playing with your team in any way, and is actually easier if done by yourself. Each player has a rank that starts at Bronze medal 1. You then progress all the way to Bronze medal 99. Your next rank up will take you to Silver medal 1. Continue leveling through all of the Silver medals to reach Gold, and all of the Gold medals to reach Platinum medal 1, at which point this achievement will unlock.
|Score a hundred and fifty points for a single completed word.|
This achievement requires that you score 150 points from a single word placement. This is generally one of the longest words in the puzzle. Before you answer the longest word, place a x2 power-up on it to guarantee it is over 150 points. As soon as you place the word and the score is tallied, the achievement will pop.
|Solve a crossword under five minutes.||(1)|
This achievement requires that you finish an entire crossword in under 5 minutes. This will probably come naturally while going for "The W-Team" achievement. There are two ways to attempt to go for this. The first one involves just completing a puzzle naturally which has a lot of players in it. If there are 4+ players completing a puzzle from the start, there should be no trouble finishing it in less than 5 minutes. The other method involves going solo. First complete a puzzle to just before completion and then take a picture of the board. Then start up the same puzzle again and fill it out as fast as you can using the picture you just took. Be quick and this achievement can be yours.
|Use each power-up at least once.|
This achievement requires that you use each of the TEN power-ups in the game at least once. Power-ups are only available to be used in Casual and Standard games modes. When you start the game you are given 5 free of each power-up (and earn random ones each day you sign into the game thereafter). You can play the power-ups in different games if you like, but why not get them all out of the way at once? Just click/tap and drag the power-ups from their location in the bottom right of the screen into the playing area. After the final one is played, the achievement will unlock.
|Complete a multiplayer crossword in first place.|
This achievement requires that you finish a multiplayer crossword (in any game mode) in first place. First place is earned by having the maximum score. Your score is shown beneath your gamerpic under the puzzle. There must be at least one other player in the game to be considered a multiplayer game. They do not need to be present at the end of the puzzle. In fact, neither do you, but you must have the highest score. Either join another player's Public puzzle, or create your own and make it Public, rapidly filling out the puzzle and racking up the points. This unlocks at the puzzle completed screen.
|Earn five token awards or more in a single game.|
This achievement requires that you earn a total of five tokens or more in a single puzzle. Tokens within the puzzle are unlocked when a word is completed that has a token symbol on it and are randomly distributed at the end of the game. There is around 8-15 of these tokens per game. The more player in the game, the less of these tokens you will be awarded. You can also earn tokens for yourself by completing special tasks including:
If you knock out a significant chunk of a puzzle and there are not that many players, you will most likely get more than 5 tokens. This is especially the case if you complete a puzzle by yourself.
|Lord of the Words||5|
|Earn at least six thousand points in crossword score.|
This achievement requires that you score 6000 points or more in a single puzzle for yourself. You will need to complete a majority of the puzzle to reach this many points. You may also want to use the 2x power-up on the longer words in the puzzle before completing them to ensure you can reach 6000 points. I would recommend playing in single player so other players dont join and take points away from you. This will unlock at the puzzle completion screen.
|Know ALL the Words!||10|
|Fill a hundred words across multiple crosswords.|
This achievement requires that you complete 100 words and can be done across multiple puzzles. Just keep filling in those clues and this one will unlock immediately when you reach 100.
|In a multiplayer game, be the first to complete a word affected by a Community Hint bonus.|
This achievement requires that you be in a Casual or Pro puzzle with at least one other player and be the first to complete a word affected by a Community Hint Bonus. Find a clue that you already know the answer to. Then drag a Community Hint bonus up (it looks like two people) and into the word that you know. This bonus will automatically reveal a few letters in the word. Quickly fill in the word before any other player to unlock this achievement.
|Et tu, Amicus?||10|
|Lock a word's hint and get it completed by a member of your team.||(1)|
This achievement requires first that you are playing a Casual puzzle with one other member of your team. You need to lock a word's hit by dragging the padlock power-up from the bottom right corner of the screen up to the puzzle and dropping it on a word. Once in place, the other player on your team must solve the clue for the word you locked. As soon as they do, the achievement will unlock.
|Stay Calm and Play On||10|
|Fill a word that was affected by someone else's Bomb power-up.|
This achievement requires that you be in a Casual or Pro puzzle with at least one other player and may require a bit of communication with them. The other player first needs to place a Bomb power-up (it looks like a bomb) on the board. This will reveal a cluster of up to 9 letters across numerous words on the board. To unlock the achievement, you simply have to finish a word that contains any of the revealed letters. This achievement is probably best attempted with a teammate, as not many people typically use power-ups in normal play.
|I Love Every Cat||10|
|Duplicate at least a hundred points from a single word completed by a member of your team.||(2)|
This achievement requires first that you are playing a Casual puzzle with one other member of your team. Your teammate first needs to complete a single word to earn 100 points. This is generally one of the longest words in the puzzle. Before they answer it, place a x2 power-up on the word to guarantee it is over 100 points (you or your teammate can place this). Once they complete the word, drag the Copy Cat power-up (it looks like a cat) and place it on the already-completed word to copy the score and unlock this achievement.
|Score fifty bonus points from word-crossing with a member of your team.|
This achievement requires first that you are playing a Casual puzzle with one other member of your team. You then must score a cumulative total of 50 bonus points by word-crossing with your teammate. To word-cross, complete a word that has a letter in it from a word that has already been filled in by your teammate. You will need to word-cross around 10 words, but the number seems vary and is hard to pin-point. This should easily be obtainable in a single game if you play a puzzle with a teammate, with your focus being on Up-Down words and your teammate's focus being on Across words. This achievement is a bit glitchy, so if it doesn't unlock just keep at it.
|You had twenty puzzles running at the same time.||(6)|
This achievement requires that you have 20 puzzles active at the same time. In order to obtain this achievement for FREE, you must do it offline.
