Edit: I thought this was clear from the achievement description, but I suppose it's worth saying. You earn this achievement by winning the Calimari Cove scenario in only one turn. You must take every enemy territory and complete the level without ending your turn. As with most of the achievements in this game, using an anagram solver online somewhere can greatly reduce the difficulty. I am writing this from the perspective of NOT using an anagram solver, though I certainly don't care if you use one.

This is tough, but it's doable. You might have to get a little lucky.

Starting positions and starting armies are exactly the same every time. Starting position may or may not be fixed, but most likely you'll be going last (4th). Try to get the anagrams when other players attack each other, each anagram gives you one Extra Backup and you want to have a few of those on your turn in order to make a lot of attacks. You'll also get an Extra Backup for each other player you eliminate, so try to knock out Dwayne and Caprice early on your turn, they should have already lost some battles to Malik.

Last game mechanic you need to remember about is "Star Army". When you get a streak of 3 or more connected victories on one turn, you get bonus treasure, which leads to Extra Backup.

You don't need to be perfect in order to win this; I almost got this in a game where I lost a battle to Caprice on the first turn. That actually made it easier to get Star Armies since there was more space between my territories.
