This is for winning territorial puzzle contests in Explorer. You'll need at least two controllers. A territorial puzzle happens when one player tries to take over a territory owned by another player.

I found this easiest with four controllers, mostly because the three other players could keep trying to take my territory, and as long as I won the territory would stay mine. I would set it up by starting each of the other players in a continent that had at least one territory pre-seeded with my color. I would then take over at least two territories in my starting continent so I could move back and forth between them with no real time penalty. Then I would have each other player try to take over one of mine to kick off a territorial contest.

Rinse and repeat. Just make sure not to make too many territories change hands or you might inadvertently win the game before you get the achievement (hence why player 1 just moves back and forth between territories rather than trying to win new ones).

Now this is important -- only the puzzle challenges, where you are putting pieces of a photo back together, count for this achievement. It seems semi-random what kind of territorial contest you'll get, and you won't get credit towards this achievement for multiple choice questions or other question types. Just the puzzles. I don't think losing the other types matters, but it's easy enough not to do it. So you'll be playing much more than 5 contests. However, once you get the fifth straight victory in a picture puzzle, the achievement will pop.
