Easy Mode
4 AI
10 Victory Points - Standard Game

To get the Longest Road card, you need to build at least 5 roads that touch one another. To keep the Longest Road card, you must have more continuous road than any other player in the game.

After 10 games of doing this, you should get the achievement.

TIP: Do NOT do this achievement along with Citizen and Knight of Catan. If you are to get all 3 achievements, or any other achievements, simultaneously in this game, it will record one and void all the others unless you load Catan onto another Xbox 360 and recover your gamertag. This is the only known workaround. View Xebu's comment below for more information.

It works with 7 victory points games.
So I suggest this setup :

1 player mode with 3 Easy AI.
7 victory points
Quick game (to get the second settlement upgraded to a city).

You should use the option to fix who starts the game and take seat 4, this way you are the first to place your city. Try to get wood and brick so you're able to immediately build two roads. The Easy AI will pretty much never keeps you from trading a card for another, so it should be easy to go for the third road , giving you the card (make sure your two first roads that come free before the start of the game can be connected) on your first turn.

At that point, you have 5 victory points and just need to end the game asap. Just build two more settlements, or one settlement and a city. By abusing trading two-for-one with the AI you'll just need one or two turn.
