    I had a real hard time getting this achievement mainly because the description is not the best and other guides have missed important parts of this.

    This is exactly how I got it:

    - Click on PLAY and select FAMILY FUN, choose 2 TEAMS.

    - Click on HOUSE RULES, GAME LENGTH
    >> Set POINTS to 5 and choose it since it's the quickest way to complete after you get the achievement.
    >> Make sure that the DRAW TIMER is set to OFF!
    >> I also had TEMPUS FUGIT unchecked.

    - Now click BACK and click on GAMEPLAY
    >> I had both BONUSES checked, PENALTIES unchecked, and PICTURIST set for WHO PICKS.

    - Now click BACK and click on DRAW MODES
    >> For Clue Categories I had everything checked. (Don't think it's necessary but since this is how I got it, I figured I'd give my exact settings)
    >> For MANIA MODIFIERS I had everything checked as well.
    >> For DRAW MODES I had everything checked as well.

    - Now click BACK, BACK and PLAY to start the game.

    Soon as the blue team (YOU) gets to draw, follow these steps. In case the green wins the high rolling dice, just make sure it doesn't get it right so it goes to your turn:

    1. For Mania Modifier pick None, Draw Mode pick None, for Clue Category I picked Object.

    2. Start with the 'Draw Tool' and draw a little line with every different tool.

    3. With the Finger Paint picked, go and change to every single color and draw a little line. Make sure that you are choosing all 8 colors and also the sub colors which I have listed:

    Yellow + 4 Sub Colors
    Purple + 4 Sub Colors
    Orange + 4 Sub Colors
    Blue + 4 Sub Colors
    Red + 4 Sub Colors
    Green + 4 Sub Colors
    White + 4 Sub Colors
    Black

    I would suggest to double check and re-do the colors in case you did accidentally picked another one. What I did to make sure is selected each of the colors twice!

    Once this is done, in case the achievement does not pop just like for me when I tried this several times, do the following.

    4. Use all of the Draw Tools again and draw a little line with each of them with the last one being the Crayon.

    5. Pick the eraser and choose both of the erasers available to erase a little off the screen.

    6. With the Crayon, draw all 6 Shapes. Size does not matter; however, don't put them on top of the lines that you have drawn since you will need at least one of them for step 6.

    7. Use the Fill option to fill in one of the shapes that you drew. I filled in my box and the achievement popped!

    If at this point the achievement does not pop, you had probably missed a color. In the same drawing, just move the screen over and re-do all of the colors.

    Best of luck on this annoying achievement!

    This is easiest in Family Fun mode. Make sure the Draw Timer is set to Off and the game is set to Point Limit. When the first clue comes up, simply go down the line, using each tool and color once. You do not have to use each color with every tool. Don't forget that there are four additional colors for every color if you hover over it long enough (white and black have the same colors however). This will unlock once every tool and every color have been used at least once in one clue drawing.

    ZulghinlourI ran into similar problems on this and it turns out I missed one of the colors. I went back through all the colors a second time and partway through the achievement actually popped.

    OzzysShadyDiscoone of the "erasers" is actually a zoom tool. you have to put your fingers on the tablet and spread them or pinch them to "zoom" in or out. that seems to be the problem most of the time, according to the comment in the other solution.
