Welcome to Who Wants to be a Millionaire 2012 Edition. This game is a trivia game where you answer questions for a certain money value and work your way to $1,000,000. The game is a Kinect only title that uses the voice control features very well. Just make sure there isn't a lot of background noise when playing. Also, Google is your best friend for this game.

You can use the Answer Guide at Thanks to xCKJoeh153x for finding the site.

Step 1:

Step 1 is to go through a game answering every question in the game correctly and without using any lifelines. There is no time limit, so take your time, use Google to find the answers with keywords from the question (do not type the whole question word for word). This will net you Contestant, Sure Thing, Know It All, Straight A+, Summit, and Top Player for 325

Step 2:

Use the answer guide to win $1,000,000 in 4 more games to unlock Multi-Millionaire & More and More for 150.

Step 3:

Step 3 is to complete all the two player achievements. You will have to play at least 11 games of two player. In this step you will unlock Tortoise, Underdog, Speed of Light, Challenger, Rival, & Fast and Accurate for 300.

Step 4:

Here you will collect the remaining achievements. Start a game, answer the first question correctly, jump the next two questions, use ask the audience, then walk away on the fourth question. You will have to do this 25 times. This will unlock Good Start, Question Jumper, Audience Lover, Smart Move, Champion, & Fan for 225.


Congrats on another easy 1000. If you can stick through the boring and repetitive Kinect play, then you should have no problem finishing this quickly and without too much trouble.

The round one lifeline is "Jump the Question". You get two of them. Use both in a game and you should have this in 13 games.

Fast and accurate25
Reach Round Two 10 times in a Two Player game.    

In a two player game, the player with the most money at the end of round one, moves on to round two. Make it to round two 10 times.

Audience Lover50
Use the Ask the Audience lifeline 10 times.    

This is the round two lifeline. You get one per game. Best way to do this is while going for Fast and accurate. Use the lifeline then "walk away".

Smart Move50
Use Walk Away 25 times.    

You can only walk away after using all your lifelines. Once your lifelines are used, just say Walk Away and the game will end. Do this 25 times.

Sure Thing50
Complete Round One without using any lifelines.    

You have to answer every question in round one correctly. Use Google and look up the answers.

Win a Two Player game without going to Round Two.    

Have both players answer the questions correctly. Once the player going for the achievement gets more than $25000, that player needs to stop answering. Continue to have the other player answer questions correctly until Round two. When round two starts, that player needs to get the first question wrong. They will then lose the game and get $25000. As long as the player who lost round one has more than $25000, the achievement will unlock.

Overcome a $20,000 deficit to win Round One in a Two Player game.    (1) 

The best method I found is to let player two answer correctly until they get $20000-$22500. This is pretty much luck based. Once player two has that amount of money, they stop answering questions and player one then needs to answer the remaining questions correctly.
