Guide By: Arsenic 17
There are 11 achievements with a total of 200 points.
THE "HOME BUTTON" TRICK: If you spin the wheel and land on a space that is bad or you do not want, hit the Home Button (Windows Button) immediately. Then relaunch the game again (from a tile or the Games Hub). Once in the game, there will be an option to continue the game. Do so and it will be at a point before your last turn. You can spin the wheel again to get a different number and avoid the tile you landed on previously.

|Living the Life||5|
|Win 1 game of original|
See "Lifetime Achievement."
|Variety is the Spice of Life||5|
|Change careers at least once in a single game|
This achievement is earned when you change careers for the first time. To make certain you earn this, when you get the chance to go to night school near the middle of the game, do so. After moving through the night school spaces, you will get the option to change careers or take a pay raise. Change careers and choose new one to earn this achievement.
|Win the game while having the most children||(1)|
You need to finish the game with the most wealth and have at least 4 children. You can have more than 4, but the game won't add them to your car. Make sure you land on the "Twins" square with both players when playing 2 player pass-and-play, and both of your players will probably get two more children on the way around. Use the "Home Button" trick to guarantee this. As long as the winner has more than 4 children, this will unlock.
|Win a game with over $2,000,000 of wealth|
You need to finish a game with you player's grand wealth total coming to more than $2,000,000. This can be tricky to get. Fortunately, you can use the "Home Button" trick to redo any turn where your player loses money.
|Don't Blame me!||15|
|Beat another player who is nominated to be sued in a lawsuit|
This is the only achievement that must be done in a SOLO GAME. It first requires that a CPU player lands on a blue-colored space and sues you. Then you must play an Exemption card to get out of being sued. Exemption cards are received at the beginning of the game when you choose your three Share the Wealth cards. Just start up a 2-player game against the CPU and make sure you get an Exemption card at the beginning of the game. Then just play through the game normally and hope the CPU lands on a blue space.
|Top of the World||15|
|Be a Doctor and own the Mansion House|
Work towards getting this achievement when grinding the ten victories with 2-player games. Send both of your players to college and hope one of them gets the Doctor career. If neither does, you can just restart the game. Play through the game all the way, making sure not to lose your job or switch careers with your Doctor. Then, when the option comes to buy your second house, purchase the Mansion. It costs $800,000, but you can take out a loan to get it if need be. The achievement will unlock right away.
|Be an Athlete and own the Mansion House|
Work towards getting this achievement when grinding the ten victories with 2-player games. Do not go to college with both of your players and hope one of them gets the Athlete career. If neither does, you can just restart the game. Play through the game all the way, making sure not to lose your job or switch careers with your Athlete. Then, when the option comes to buy your second house, purchase the Mansion. It costs $800,000, but you can take out a loan to get it if need be. The achievement will unlock right away.
|Money Money Money||20|
|Have an investment pay off 5 times in a single game|
First, you will need to invest money on the wheel. This is done by tapping the bottom of the screen when it is your turn on the area that says "Tap or spin to play." Once the menu pops up, tap "Invest." This will allow you to spend $10,000 to purchase the rights to a number on the wheel. Anytime another player spins and lands on the number you purchased, you will get $5,000. You need other players to land on your number 5 times total throughout the game.
|In it to win it||25|
|Win $500,000 on Spin to Win|
This is the most luck based achievement in the game. As you play the game, there are some spaces (that are yellow and blank) that if you land on, you are able to play Spin to Win. Basically it lets you choose one number, bet some money, then spin the wheel to see if it lands on it. To unlock this achievement, you need to make sure you place the max bet ($50,000) and then land on your number. There are several Share the Wealth cards that can increase your odds of getting this achievement. They allow you to either pick 2 or 4 total numbers on the wheel at once, instead of the usual 1 number, greatly increasing your odds of winning.
|Be a Police Officer and bust another player for speeding||(1)|
This is another luck based achievement. To become a Police Officer, you first need to choose not to go to college and just hope you pick this career. While you are a Police Officer, you can get $5,000 from any player that spins a 10 on the wheel, as they are speeding. This will come without really trying.
|Win 10 games of original|
Original is the only game type you can play. It is just the basic Game of Life. Along the way to completing all the miscellaneous achievements, you should earn at least three wins, if not more. The quickest and most painless way to grind wins is to play 2-player multiplayer (with you controlling both players). It does not matter which player wins, as long as you finish the game you will get a win added to your total. You do not even need to pay attention while grinding the wins. Just keep spinning the wheel and selecting random options for both players. Each game will take around 30 minutes if you are constantly spinning the wheel. I found this achievement best to boost while watching TV or something similar.
