|Inaugural (10 points)|
|Complete your first game with no tiles remaining|
At the end of a game, make sure that your rack is empty. Make use of spaces between letters for those last minute points with 2 letter words.
|Duplicate (5 points)|
|Score 2 word multipliers with one word|
This will probably be the hardest achievement in the game. You must play a word across 2 DW/TW in one shot.
This one will take a bit of time and manipulation. In order to unlock the achievement, you will need to create a 9-letter word that will span across both 'DW' bonuses at the same time. You can do this in a local 'Pass & Play' game.
...so choose a word based on your starting letters from here:
You'll have to abuse the swap-tile feature, but if you keep doing that, the game will start giving you back the tiles you first swapped out. Just use what you don't want on another part of the board and hold or build part of the word you've selected, with the other tiles.
I used the word 'RETENTION' spanning from the upper-right 'DW' to the lower-right 'DW'
- I started with a word that ended with an 'N'. The 'N' was positioned between the two 'DW's
- Next, I built my letter up to the word 'EN'
- After a few turns, to 'TEN'
- A bit more tile-swapping and built it up to 'TENT'
- Now held the remaining tiles needed until I could complete the entire word 'RETENTION'

|Get a rating of 1500+|
With every win or loss, your Rating will update accordingly. This will be the lengthiest achievement to get. With never losing a game you'll need over 200 games. Having your queue built up with games constantly and using a solver will make this easier. However, if you just keep at it, this will come over time.
