Summary: This achievement is incredibly easy on paper, but becomes a bit of a challenge, so you just do three things. Here, I'll branch it out individually for you guys on the process.

Note: All of these activites are found in the main inn in Flotsam, which should be the first city you enter unless you somehow wonder off to a different city...

A) Arm Wrestling - This will seem impossible if you do it against the hard fellow from the first camp you are in the prologue (I was trying to beat this bloke for about thirty minutes), but this is easy, if you just go to the inn, which seems to house the most pathetic people at any form of activity you will ever do in The Witcher 2. The man will be on the ground floor. I will edit this when I learn his name, but all I know is he is definetely not strong and the option "Let's Arm Wrestle" should pop up after talking to the guy. Just move the designated analog stick with the moving yellow bar. You will notice the bar shrinks the cloer you are to winning, so don't jerk it! ......

B) Dice Poker - If your luck is as crap as mine, you will realize this is the hardest of the three activities. Basically, imagine poker (the one, you know, with cards), but instead of cards, there are dice, and there are only two turns. If you need help with what the promenant dice patters you are looking for, think normal poker; a three-of-a-kind of cards is better than one pair, etc. The dice are labeled with roman numerals signifying their value (I-VI, or 1-6). Try to win, but there is one bugger on this; people can just choose to leave before you even win, so you might not get the achievement. To find the game, go downstairs in the inn and to the right of the loud drunk fights, there should be two men should be sitting down on one bench or standing near one. Just talk to them, choose your initial challenger, and just win through the knowledge of the game you now have. If you win, you'll start a quest, same goes for every other activity.

C) Fist Fight - The story should throw you into a couple of these before you even enter the city of Flotsam. If you lost them (assuming you can continue if you were defeated), just go down the stairs inside the inn, which is located to the left of the two hanging bodies you should recognize from slightly earlier in the game upon enterting Flotsam. The drunk fighting is impossible to miss unless you have grown a tolerance from it in real-life experiences. Just simply follow the on-screen button sequences gamers are all too familiar with now, and if you have played any God of War, this should be an incredibly breeze.

Hope this helped. Let me knwo if I should edit anything, and good luck hunting!
