    This achievement will unlock once you have an average word score of 20 points or more across all online games played, not just a single game after you have played your first 10 words.

    If you've played the WP version a lot you may find you are quite a bit below the required 20 points average. I was on 14 average with around 110 games played and it took about an hour of only scoring 40+ points per word to reach 20 points average.

    This can be checked in the statistics menu and is called 'Avg Move:'

    Credit to Minioger for this info:

    passing and swapping count as a move and decrease your average as they are 0 points!!

    I ended up getting it by starting a game and getting a 20+ point word or resigning right away! Resigning doesn't hurt your average score (it doesn't count as a move).

    EDIT: Credit to Humpurton for letting me know local games DO NOT count.

    TheTechFanIf you'd like to calculate the number of moves required to get to an average word score of 20, you can use the following equation (where n is the number of moves required):

    (expected average of future words - 20)n = 20(moves played) - (current average * moves played)

    For example, if you expect to make 35 points from each future word, your current average is 15, and you've made 200 moves, the equation would look like the following:

    (35 - 20)n = 20(200) - (15 * 200)

    Which can be simplified as follows:

    15n = 4000 - 3000
    15n = 1000
    n = 67 moves

    I hope this helps!

    XtowersJust looked back at this again and realized swapping and passing counts as a move. Sheesh. Been spinning my wheels at 15 avg for a while now, I guess. Had about 700 games played, with a 15 average. Seems I'll have to make another 700 moves at 25 points each to get to 20 average. Or another 70 moves, if I can average 70 points a movesroll.

    Vermin360I suddenly don't feel like even bothering with this Achievement now, after reading the solution. I thought it was in a single game, not across all. Sad clown.

    From playing the Windows Phone version I had a very low starting average of 14.

    I found the quickest way to advance this is partly from the solution above. Start a new game. Use a site like this one:

    http://www.scrabble-solver.com/

    If you don't have a 7 letter word, resign, like the other solution says, it won't count against you. Rematch. Repeat till you get a 7 letter word and get the bonus for clearing your rack. This should land you 50-80 points per turn.

    For subsequent turns, I found it best to start spelling from the top Double Word (DW) tile downward, as it opens up more DW, DL, TL, and TW possibilities. If you can't get at least 20 points on subsequent moves, resign.

    If you are having issues with folks that just are not playing, here is how to wipe the games from the board. Got to Date/Time on your PC and advance the date one week. Come back to Alphajax and choose "Their Turns", then click on the games, you will be offered the chance to force them to resign, as the game thinks at least a week has gone by since the game started. Swap your clock back when you are done and make some more games.

    The points don't seem to count till the other player moves or resigns, so forcing resignation can boost your score very quickly.

    Use this website: http://www.scrabulizer.com/

    Unlike Scrabble-solver or any of the others, you can tailor it to Alphajax specifically. Not only that, but if you fill in the board with what your current game is, the Scrabulizer will actually work out the very best possible words you can play and list them in order of points.

    The problem with the other sites, is that some of the words are invalid on Alphajax 'cos they use the wrong dictionary as a source, plus you have to look around the board yourself and manually try words out, not with the Scrabulizer!

    This is the best possible way to increase your average score and win you every game.
