How to unlock the Win the hour achievement

    The wording for this achievement is a bit off. The actual requirements for this is to get the best SINGLE score of the hour.
    By far the easiest way to do this is to change the puzzle language to Arabic and systematically work through the puzzle trying to get as many words as you can.

    To find out where you are on the leaderboard go to:
    Leaderboards > Best Of > Then select the drop down box and change it to Best of the Hour.
    If you have just got a really high score but it hasn't put it on the leaderboard yet, Don't Worry!! just play or wait through another game and after that the boards should have updated and if you are top you should get your achievement.

    Should you not unlock your achievement straight away, just close down the app and load it back up again and if you were 1st of the hour at any point, your achievement should pop.

    If you have managed to get your achievement on Windows 8 or Windows Phone, then to get the achievement on the other platform all you have to do is load up the game on the version you haven't got the achievement for yet and it should unlock straight away, without even having to play a game.
    EDIT- If you have managed to get high score which meant you were 1st on the iOS version, then you will get the achievement when you log on to the other versions. Credit to Fadi kun.

    Good Luck!

    PsyburnsI finally got it! 354pts on Arabic. Every time I attempted this, I would be close, but when the update was approaching, some jerk would come up and score an easy 470pts and take over! Thanks for the tip on closing the app, that achieved my goal.

    MaseJAfter trying to get this on & off for over a year in Arabic, I happened to load up the game to give it a go, changed my language from English to Arabic, and the achievement popped. Not sure how but not complaining. I hadn't played since June.

    FuzzedUpCookiewas 2nd at one point in arabic language, after a while i switched back to native (Dutch) and restarted the game. when i went back to arabic again it popped because i was 1st all of a sudden :) so restarting the game from time to time helps :)

    AwooEvery normal language has people putting up impossible 1500+ scores every hour, and in Arabic it's usually more like 800-900. How does one beat that? It's all just squiggles, I have no idea how to score... and don't tell me to "look for patterns" in a language I have zero experience with.

    AlonsoFiveI don't remember needing over 800 points to get this when I played, more like 200-300. Maybe try playing at a quieter time. Don't try and make words, just do as many combinations of tiles on the board as you can and you will make a lot of little words getting you lots of points.

    DeviSlatorCan confirm you need to switch to the language you got the achievement in previously. Just wasted an hour playing in Swedish, soon as I switched to Spanish it popped.
