## Achievement Guide for Meta-Player

Solution
Overall, the "Challenge mode" is pretty easy. There are one or two that need a few tries, but, I found that setting the difficulty to NORMAL instead of EASY for most of them, I could abuse the "1,2,6,7,4,3 " exploit for a quick win. This exploit doesn't work under EASY as the AI is too 'dumb' to try and stop you correctly.

The only challenge that was a little bit tricky was the final (top) one in the second column; "Double Trouble", that requires a single chip to complete 2 rows of 4 (7 chips total). This is an achievement in itself, so chances are you may have done it already in the game. If you have, you still need to complete the challenge and if not, you'll pop that achievement as well. However, to give yourself a bit of a head-start, try the following.

Set the difficulty to EASY, then, place your first chip in column 1, then column 7 and then work your way in and upwards, finally meeting in column 4, row 4. It took me a few tries to get the AI to do what I needed though.

After some feedback on this, people have pointed out it relies on luck more than I knew. For me, it was maybe 5 or 6 games and around 10 minutes. However, others have said it wasn't this simple for them, with no luck after hours of trying.

Since it seems to be down to luck, all I can suggest is to keep trying. If anyone else has a suggestion on this one, please let us know.

Also, as UnsungGhost rightly points out, "Just make sure to keep your eyes on the other pieces because you might have a chance to make a easy diagonal-horizontal double Connect-4 somewhere else."

Thanks for the advice from over on the x360a.org website forum. Thought I'd share it here too.

If you want to down-vote, at least let me know why so I can try to fix this up, thanks.
