Introduction: Welcome to Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's Decade Duels; this game has 12 achievements for 200 points and should take at least 40 hours to finish. This game has a bit of a learning curve as the AI is pretty smart and has fairly powerful cards. You are going to need to bring your A game if you want a chance of winning.
Step 1: Starting out
The AI in this game very smart and will probably whip you a few times before you win. Regardless if you win or lose, you will earn the To become a duelist achievement and get at least 1 rare card for you efforts which will unlock the Becoming a special duelist achievement. It could be bad or could be awesome. If you want take that consolation prize, you can edit your deck for the You have talent! achievement. Keep playing and you will eventually learn each opponent's weakness. (Each opponent has a serious flaw in their strategy) and you will start winning and unlocking better and better cards. This step fades into step 2 when you start winning.
Step 2: Play through the preliminary and knockout tournament.
You will need to play through the preliminary tournament scoring the most points to advance to the knockout tournament. After you've won your first Preliminary tournament, you will unlock First to become a true duelist.The knockout tournament is bracket style with 8 contestants; the final opponent being Jack the first time and Yusei the second time. They seem to pick your final opponent randomly so you may have to do several tournaments until you get both. Beating Yussei will unlock Become a Signer, whereas beating Jack will unlock Absolute King of the turbo duel.
Step 3: Tis the time to grind/online
Once you beat Jack and Yusei its time to grind out 200 wins; 100 single mode (not matches) and 100 Tag duels and 1 million damage. None this takes a super long time but can become tedious. If you want to save time and effort you can boost these 4 achievements all at the the same time. Get 3 boosting partners/friends or people from the Achievement Trading Thread, and set up a single mode tag duel with settings set to private. Invite the party in and have at it. This does mean Single mode is not necessarily against the brutal AI, these can be boosted online. 200 wins will be your last achievement as 1 million damage will come early on compared to 200 wins.
If you are at this point hopefully you have got your completion and conquered the insanity that is this game's brutal AI. This game is tough, but the challenge starts to diminish as you play more and more and unlock better and better cards. Overall this game is very fun and provides a bit of a challenge to those seeking it. Congratulations on the solid purchase and good luck and "May the heart of the card's be with you!"

|Become a Duelist||10|
|Play a single player game|
This achievement will will unlocked when you play through the story. Win or lose, the achievement unlocks.
|First to become a true Duelist||10|
|Win a Preliminary Tournament||(1)|
If you are about to lose a duel in the tournament you can quit to the main menu and continue; this will start over the duel with the person you are about to lose to. This can become an effective means of studying an opponent's deck if you are losing and it doesn't effect your place in the tournament.
This is a bracket style tournament, with Jack or Yusei as your opponent in the finals.
|Become a Signer||10|
Boss monster: Stardust dragon 2500 atk/ 2000 def
Effect: You can Tribute this card to negate the activation of a Spell Card, Trap Card, or Effect Monster's effect that destroys a card(s) on the field, and destroy that card. If you negate an effect this way, you can Special Summon this card from your Graveyard during the End Phase.
|Absolute King of the Turbo Duel||10|
Boss monster: Five headed dragon 5000 atk/ 5000 def
Effect: The Fusion Materal Monsters for this card are any 5 Dragon-Type monsters. This monster cannot be Special Summoned except by Fusion Summon. This card does not take any Battle Damage and cannot be destroyed by battle with an Earth, Water, Fire, wind or Dark monster. (Battle Damage is still inflicted to players.)
|You have talent!||10|
|Save an original Deck Recipe|
To get this achievement you need to play a duel to earn a new card then go to the deck editor, and put in one of the cards you got and then save it. Make sure to rename it as well; I rename it after every edit to make sure that I am using my new recipe. When you play against the AI; for every 20 points you score you get a card. So if you win you are auto entitled to 5 cards.

|Create a friend!||10|
|Play a Tag Duel||(4)|
Requires 4 players
This is an online achievement. Play a tag duel all the way through; win or lose it unlocks. See "Friendly duelist" for more information regarding tag duels.
|You became a tag Duelist!||10|
|Win a Tag Duel for the first time||(1)|
4 players required.
This is an online achievement. Win your first tag duel. See "Friendly Duelist" for more information regarding tag duels.
|Becoming a special Duelist||10|
|Win and get a Rare Card||(2)|
Win your first duel and this unlocks. Keep playing and unlocking cards, don't get discouraged if you keep losing you will eventually get the cards you need to win.
|Inflict at least 1 million total damage||(5)|
This seems difficult, but if you win every duel you play it will take a minimum of 125 duels to accumulate 1 million damage. Do to the insane AI you will probably get this way before "Lonely Duelist" or "Friendly Duelist"; you will rack up damage from duels regardless if you win or not and duels from multiplayer also count. You will get this with ease if you are going for all the other achievements.
Cards you will need: Neo-spacian Hummingbird, Mistbody
|100 wins in Single Mode|
Single mode means not matches. So 1 duel, no best 2 out of 3. You can boost this while going for tag wins as well, just set it to single duel matches and it will count.
|100 wins in Tag Duel||(108)|
4 players required.
This is an online achievement. You must win 100 tag duels. If you want to do this legit (non-boosting) you will need co-operation from your teammate as you can set magic and traps for your partner to use and vice-versa. Create strategies together cause on whoever's turn it is. Both players can see your hand and you can see their's on their turn. So if its your turn; your partner can see the cards in your hand but not his. When its his turn you can see his hand but you can't see yours. You are playing on the same play mat so even though there are 2 duelists you only have 5 monster spaces and only 5 magic so plan accordingly. You can boost this in custom games; just set the game to private and invite 3 people to boost with.
|200 wins in any mode||(2)|
Just win 200 duels can be a mix of tag/singles and single duel/matches. This will most likely be your last achievement for the game.
