While this achievement is relatively simple, if you're considering buying this game and are looking to try to figure out what you're going to be seeing, let me give you a brief overview.
Firstly, this is a party games game, similar to mario party (though crappier) while intertwined with Diddy Kong Racing. This is the Diddy Kong Racing aspect. The first thing that will occur upon starting a normal game will be a race. The place you get in this race will help determine the bonus points you get in subsequent games.
So what is the best way to win a race?
Use the shortcuts, use the boosts, use your items well, and hope for some luck. If you really want to, you're always welcome to plug in other controllers which would basically make it really simple to win, but you probably wont need to. This will probably be your first achievement.
