    To make this achievements go faster i went to the settings and made the game length on shortest, and picked 4 teams. Now when the game starts up it should put you half way up the board and there should ony be 2 glowing squares up ahead. I would quit and start a new game if both squares were not not on the first platform. Now when they both appear close this should shorten the attempts needed to land on 15 Mega Mania squares.

    Larvi1I was getting frustrated because I always seemed to miss them too. So another tip is that right before the 2nd to last ledge is a stop square that you will always land on. When you start up the game check o see if the mega mania square falls on that, and if so play that game as you will get one guaranteed.

    neeker75There were a few times I didn't get the right dice roll, but still landed on the Mega Mania square because it happened to be on an "enforced" square (i.e., regardless of what you roll, you will land on it when you go past it). These counted for me as well. My last count for this was on an enforced square. Very happy to get this crap out of the way.

    Here is what I did to land on 15 Mega Maniac squares in less than 60 minutes:

    -Go to Pictionary Mania and set it to "Shortest" & select "4 Players".
    -When the game loads up, if the 2 flashing white squares are not within 6 moves of your starting characters then reload a new game.
    -When it comes to rolling the dice to move your character count out how many moves you need and if the dice doesn't land on the number you need hit start and quit.
    -If you did it fast enough (if the announcer begins speaking prior to you pressing start then you are taking too long) you will be back where you where before you rolled the dice.
    -If you messed up just lose on that turn and repeat with one of the other players.
    -Once you land on the 2 flashing squares and answer the questions correctly you can safely quit to the main menu and repeat until it unlocks.

    The achievement should unlock as soon as you get 15 Mega Maniac answers correct.

    Boots OrionExcellent tip, regarding quitting before the "roll" is official. It's pretty easy to do once you figure the timing out.

    XtowersThis is a great solution. The quit and restart tip worked great for getting the perfect roll. I still used 4 players just in case I messed up and didn't quit correctly for one or two rolls. Good timing is essential. I'd also add that I would play a game if I saw a Mega Maniac square on the "Stop" square, which is the blue square right before the second "step-up" (after the gap jump). You are guaranteed to land on the maniac square then. Also knowing you can quit out after landing and answering the maniac question was helpful. Thank you!
