    This one will take a bit of time and manipulation. In order to unlock the achievement, you will need to create a 9-letter word that will span across both 'DW' bonuses at the same time. You can do this in a local 'Pass & Play' game.

    ...so choose a word based on your starting letters from here:
    http://www.becomeawordgameexpert.com/wordlists9.htm

    You'll have to abuse the swap-tile feature, but if you keep doing that, the game will start giving you back the tiles you first swapped out. Just use what you don't want on another part of the board and hold or build part of the word you've selected, with the other tiles.

    i.e,
    I used the word 'RETENTION' spanning from the upper-right 'DW' to the lower-right 'DW'

    - I started with a word that ended with an 'N'. The 'N' was positioned between the two 'DW's
    - Next, I built my letter up to the word 'EN'
    - After a few turns, to 'TEN'
    - A bit more tile-swapping and built it up to 'TENT'
    - Now held the remaining tiles needed until I could complete the entire word 'RETENTION'
    Just remember. You have to use both 'DW' spaces at the same time.

    Good luck.

    olde fortran 77Wildcards work. I used the wildcard on one of the Double Word tiles and the achievement popped.

    CreuilI found an easy way:
    I tried to follow your solution, i had a 7 letter word between both DW. I couldn't make a 9 letter word. So i tried random letters on both DW, word was not valid, i did not remove bad letters, i gave up and achievement unlocked. Sorry for my bad English, i'm french.

    squsoI wasn't paying attention while I did this in local play. I did 'STANDINGS' on the local users turn and it still unlocked. It looks like it doesn't have to be your main account that makes the word.
