You need win a game over xbox live against 5 other human players.

There are 2 ways to do this.

1. Custom match
Host a match yourself.
* Press "Play Online"
* Press "Select Players"
* Press the "+" to invite friends or at the bottom "open for public", repeat this 5 times.
* Press "Invite - Proceed to lobby"
* Press "Go, start the game". You need to have at least one other player to join your game before you can press it. If you start the game before all players joined it will give you a warning that not all players you invited are there yet.

2. Quick match
* Press "Quick match"
* Select your number of players at the bottom by pressing on "+"
* Press "Start search"
* Wait until you are with six. Note: The host can start the game anytime, so this method is not guaranteed to be started with six players.

Warning: The servers are really bad, so you might not be able to connect to them. Just keep trying at another time and eventually it will work. The difficult part is to be with 6 online at the same time so you can start the game. Once it is started, you can play your tile when it is your turn. No need to be online at the same time anymore. It takes some time if you have to wait until the previous players made their moves before you can take yours. You know who is the next player, so you always can send them a message over xbox live saying it is his turn.
How to quit out? Press the back button and choose "Quit/Save".
How to find your games in progress? In the main menu on the left side, press "continue" and all your games in progress will load there. Press one to continue.

I doubt you find 6 players randomly. You probably have more luck to find enough people by making a gaming session

Edit: Apparently the servers are still bad. Good luck trying.

Quick Match will no longer work. The servers are down for Quick Match.

Word of Caution:
We ran into an issue that caused our online game to take 3+ months to complete, but the issue's resolved now. There was an issue with Carcassonne that, when played on a phone with Windows Phone 8/8.1, the license would suddenly expire at a random point, and the game would become unplayable for that person (including offline play). With the recent update to Windows Phone 10 Preview, the license for one of the people on our session suddenly started working again, and we were able to progress. If you run into this issue, try upgrading to Windows Phone 10 Preview and redownloading the delisted game from Your Library.

On Windows 10 Mobile, we were unable to find where the Game Requests went on the Xbox app, and the one person in our group on Windows 10 Mobile had to invite us instead. It's possible to get this on Windows 10 Mobile, but it may not be possible to be invited by people on Windows Phone 7/8.
