|Roll five-of-a-kind at dice poker.|
Aside from the method below (which only some have found useful), this is purely based on luck. However, there a few things you can do to make your task a little easier.
First off, you are advised to try and earn the achievement at the earliest opportunity. That means playing the opponent in Foltest's camp at the very beginning of the game. This is preferable because later, better opponents are more likely to fold if your first roll contains three or more of-a-kind.
The most straight-forward approach is simply to hold any duplicates over for your second roll, even if you have just two matching dice.
Be aware that the achievement is based on you having five-of-a-kind at the end of your hand, not after your first roll. If you are lucky enough to roll five-of-a-kind first time, merely hold all of your dice.

If these are normal six-sided dice, you have a 1 in 1,296 (0.08%) chance of rolling five-of-a-kind. Of course, if it's like yahtzee where you get multiple rolls, your odds are increased significantly. If you get three rolls (Yahtzee rules) and you're strictly going for five-of-a-kind, the odds are roughly 1 in 22 (around 4.6%).

Witcher 2 has the same system as the first Witcher, which means you roll two times per match and after 1st roll you can select dices to re-roll. What it means if you get say, 3 of kind in first roll, you can re-roll remaining 2 dices, which ups your chances considerably.

You're probably going to get one of these while going through the mainstory. Tbh it seems that the computer cheats a bit, you get good rolls pretty often.

I have to say that luck achievements are some of the worst. I think the computer has already got five or so five of a kinds in about 60 games. Me on the other hand? Several four of a kinds. So time consuming. I don't mind the skill achievements, Dark difficulty, but luck ones are crap.

So after about 80 games I got this. Then no joke two games later got it again. Just how it seems to work with these luck cheevos.

Use the trick in the videos and barely move the stick UPWARDS, other directions dont work. Just got 5 of a kind twice in a row using the trick.
|Comment #18 by djpatterson2011|
Saturday, April 28, 2012 @ 06:16:35 PM
80 rolls still no luck. Tried the method in the video many times, I am inclined to believe that those who had this method work were simply getting lucky...sure you can control how they fall to an extent, but you can't control how they are arranged before rolling, which is what really matters. Couple of times I got 4 of a kind on first roll and the bastard resigns lol. Not a fun achievement. Welp, back to it.

Saturday, April 28, 2012 @ 06:20:45 PM
Literally right after posting this I rolled a five of a kind first roll. He resigned. No achievement. Either the game has to play through to the end or you have to get five of a kind with at least one re-rolled die.
|Comment #20 by Shina Black|
Sunday, April 29, 2012 @ 06:53:17 PM
It's easier to get it in the first act, as opponents there don't quit of you roll four of a kind on first roll ;)

@#20 - that is not true. I just played for over an hour in during the first act and the other guy resigned almost every time I got 3 of a kind or more on the first role.
Then I finally got a five of a kind with 2's and he didn't resign. Well, I didn't re-roll any of the dice and won the game but didn't get the achievement. Seems buggy at best on top of the blind luck.

Okay, those videos are completely fleecing you. I get more triples and quadruplets when I shout "OPAH!" and just toss all the dice straight up. A real blemish on an otherwise masterful game and achievement list.

Tuesday, August 28, 2012 @ 05:07:20 PM
I've gotta agree with #37 on this one, stacking them on the side before you toss them just f**ks everything up... And the worst part it's time wasting too. I feel the pain of some of you, the first 5 of a kind I rolled was on the first roll... so guess who resigned immediately.. Anyhow, the best chance you have is to just gently nudge your right stick and hope for the best.

|Comment #41 by Invetro Pow II|
Monday, September 03, 2012 @ 06:13:25 PM
Finally got this biatch. Easiest way is using the game in the prologue, throwing gently until you get 3 or 4 of a kind on your first roll, then using the corner truck to line up the remaining dice. After 2hrs of trying in Act2 I got this in 5mins by starting a new game.

|Comment #44 by stockfish|
Wednesday, December 12, 2012 @ 04:55:39 PM
Just got it :) Man in the prologue also folds if you get 4 of a kind in first throw... You need three of a kind in first, then your chance to get a concrete pair in second is 1:36, so not so bad :)
My advice - Place your butt in a comfortable chair, take a beer, and stay calm ;)

I got this on my 3rd try (getting used to playing it the first 2 times). got it in chapter 2, flotsam dwarf craftsman. got 3 oof a kind then rerolled the other 2 and I got it :-) easy! I was worried this one wpuld take ages to do but no :-D

I forgot about this achievement on my normal playthrough so I decided to do it on my next playthrough on dark level. I tried accumulatively 6-7 hours, still nothing, then started a new game on easy level and got it after 10-15 tries.
So I think on an easier level you have 'greater luck'. Those struggle with it like me should try it by starting a new game on easy level.
Hope it helpes someone.

I've rolled five-of-a-kinds twice now with the first roll, no achievement perhaps since the opponent gives up before the 2nd throw. So annoying. And the odds to get those five with the first roll, oh my god.
|Comment #51 by GirGASM|

Took me about half an hour at foltest's camp. Main tip would be to hold all your doubls/ triples and just keep at it.
|Comment #54 by KaDi 86|
Saturday, December 07, 2013 @ 07:21:05 PM
After about half an hour of this I'm already hating this achievement.
And on another note:
The actual odds of getting it in the first try is 1:1296, not 1:46656 (Which is the chance of getting 7 of a kind with 7 six-sided dices).
|Comment #55 by TheInventinator|
Tuesday, March 04, 2014 @ 08:53:06 AM
oh the feeling when it finally happens. I bunched them up in the first throw and just threw them regularly if it was just two dice left. Good luck to everything still trying

Sunday, June 29, 2014 @ 03:39:50 PM
Gotta agree with #41. Maybe it was just luck but I was trying to get this in Flotsam and spent about 1 hour trying. Started a new game and got it within 5 min. Also I found the stacking method a bit pointless and managed to get it with normal rolls (no stacking) but just nudging the right thumb stick upwards.

To those that say you got 5 in a row of the same dice... I didn't realize until the 2nd time I thought I got 5 in a row, that there is a 5 star and a 6 star die that look almost the same. You have to really look at the die to see one has a V on it and the other has a VI on it.

Got this during the poker sidequest, when you play against the dwarf, Einar. I rolled 4 stars, and got my 5th on a re-roll. Complete luck.
|Comment #64 by kattw|
Sunday, June 07, 2015 @ 12:59:51 PM
Took me over three hours to finally get this on my first playthrough, on easy. As a note: the guy in Foltest's camp DOES resign if your hand is too good, but only rarely. So when you get that 4 of a kind first roll, you're not quite as far along as you'd hoped - he still has to accept the bet.
Anyways, second playthrough on dark? Got it my 4th roll, my 10th roll, and again 20 minutes later while I wait for the dummies to respawn. Freaking luck based achievements...
|Comment #65 by Seph23|
Monday, June 22, 2015 @ 09:32:26 PM
I despise luck based achievements, i prefer to play through Dark mode than spend hours just throwing dices
And just to rub salt on the wound there's no "play again?" option so you have to talk to the NPC again and scroll through the dialogue choices to pick "play poker dice" again
|Comment #66 by The Debauchery|
Saturday, January 02, 2016 @ 02:04:03 AM
I have gone through this bullshit SO many times now... and I've seen the AI opponent get 5 of a kind at least three times (including the very first match)... but not me. The ONE time I rolled 4 in the first shot, the fucker just folded and robbed me of my best chance.
And for some reason, every single time we get the same result, it counts as my loss. This KEEPS HAPPENING. Like we'll both get a 3 and 2, but it counts as his win, or just now we both got 4 of a kind, but it said I lost. Fucking stupid.
I just don't get how I'm supposed to get this ridiculous achievement.
|Comment #67 by The Debauchery|
Saturday, January 02, 2016 @ 04:49:04 AM
Nevermind. I finally figured out a trick that worked. And it isn't the stupid time-wasting stack trick.
Just throw the dice UP every time.
If you put a medium amount of force into it, they just bunch up immediately against the wall without bouncing or rolling. I got way more 3-of-a-kind results that way, so it made it easier to get 5-of-a-kind by the second roll.

Just got the achievement using the youtube trick. Your best bet definitely is the soldier in the prologue (he's hiding behind some tents in the training area). Good luck!
