The first thing you will want to do when you start Buku Sudoku is to go to the Help & Options menu and select Tutorials. Complete all eight tutorials, which take about ten minutes to do, to unlock Beat the Basics.

Online Achievements:
I recommend doing the online achievements first. To do this, you will need to set up three different lobbies. Start with a Team Battles game, then a Duel, then finally co-op. In the first two lobbies, alternate wins with your partner so that each player wins once. After that, complete one co-op game to unlock Friend and Foe. Now, complete twenty-two more co-op games to unlock, in order: Natural, Wired, and Socialite.

Offline Achievements:
Now go to Help & Options > Settings > Helpers and turn AutoPencil on and set Show Errors to Deluxe. Now, you can go back to single player to finish the other achievements. First, pick Timed mode in Single-player and set the game settings to 6x6 and Easy. Once in game, look for squares that have one number highlighted. Fill in those squares with the number shown and do this within the time limit. Lather, rinse, and repeat nine more times to unlock Time Bandit. Now, go back to the single-player menu and select Casual. Now you have to complete one game of 8x8, 9x9, and 12x12 grids, as well as a Medium and Hard game. This will unlock Super Sizes and Sampler.

All that is left it to get Buku Bank, Master, and Grand Master. As mentioned in the guide, the fastest way to earn points is to play games of 9x9 Easy grids for points, and 6x6 Easy for games. Complete a 9x9 grid in under 1:20 to unlock Too Fast. This will be easy as you have the helpers. At 2.5 and 10 million points, you unlock Buku Bank and Grand Master, and at 200 games you will unlock Master.

Buku Sudoku Achievement Guide

Printable Guide
Show completed achievements
Show secret achievements

There are 12 achievements with a total of 200 points

  • Complete lessons 1-5 in tutorial 1 and lessons 1-3 in tutorial 2.

    From the main menu select "Help & Options" then "Tutorial" and complete the five lessons in "Controls" and the 3 lessons in "Sudoku Fundamentals" and the achievement will unlock after the 8th lesson.
  • Beat the time limit for 10 puzzles in Timed mode.

    First off, make sure AutoPencil is on (select "Settings" and then "Helpers" to turn it on). Start a single player 'Timed' 6x6 on Easy. Now you will notice in the empty box you are highlighting that one or two numbers are black (or darker colored on some puzzles) and the rest are grey. The answer is the black one. Sometimes there will be more than one black number so u can come back to it, but on easy it shouldn't happen often and you can usually figure it out pretty quick. So use the right stick to select the black number and keep doing this until the puzzle is solved. And this technique is what you will be using from now on.

    And for this task, in timed mode you start off with 3 minutes on the clock and a puzzle like this will take between 20-40 seconds. Just don't let the timer get to zero and that counts as one completed puzzle. Just rinse and repeat 9 more times for the achievement.

  • Complete 1 puzzle in each of the 3 difficulties.

    Do a casual 6x6 puzzle on easy, medium and hard difficulties. Again, even without AutoPencil on a 6x6 this is very easy to accomplish.
  • Beat a puzzle in each grid size: 6x6, 8x8, 9x9, and 12x12.

    You've already done 6x6, so just do a casual 8x8, 9x9 and 12x12 on Easy and with AutoPencil on. Again, just pick the black or darker colored number.
  • Solve 10 puzzles with autopencil and show errors off.

    Save this achievement until you're going to do the online achievements. While working toward your 20 online games, you will get this automatically since you are not allowed to use any helpers online.
  • Complete 1 puzzle in Co-op, Team Battle, and Duel in Xbox LIVE mode

    For this, all you have to do is play against a friend in a 6x6 Easy puzzle player match (does not have to be ranked) on Xbox Live and complete (this means WIN) a game of Co-op, Team Battle and Duel. If you're boosting for this, you will play five games total because in Co-op you both win, while the other two modes you will trade wins.
  • Earn 2,500,000 Buku Score any way you want.

    See Grand Master for more information.
  • Complete a single player 9x9 puzzle in 1 minute and 20 seconds. Hint: you can turn autopencil on.

    This seems like it would be hard but because AutoPencil is active it tells you the answer. Start a casual 9x9 puzzle on easy and just keep using the right stick to select the black number as that is the correct answer. If you don't know what AutoPencil is or how it works, read Time Bandit achievement.
  • Master



    Complete 200 puzzles in total across the game.

    See Grand Master for more information.
  • Wired



    Complete 20 games over Xbox LIVE.

    See Socialite for more information.
  • Earn 10,000,000 Buku Score any way you want.

    The fastest way to get points is to play single player casual on a 9x9 puzzle set to easy with AutoPencil ON. Each puzzle takes 40-60 seconds and gets you about 90,000 points. It would be a good idea to play about 60 or so this way, then switch to doing 6x6 puzzles to work on your 200 games played. You should get both acievements at about the same time. If you finish your 200 games and still need points, switch back to 9x9 until you're done.
  • Complete 25 Multiplayer Games, in either Online or Local Multiplayer game play.

    After getting the Friend Or Foe achievement, you will already have gained 3 multiplayer completions. So all you have to do to save time, is play 22 more 6x6 Co-op matches on easy, this way you both get completions at the same time. Takes 30-40 seconds per game, and you will be done in 15 minutes, picking up the "Wired" achievement along the way.
