    To get this achievement, your percentage rating at the end of the game must be more than 50%.
    I got this naturally by having a good game by chance.
    If your struggling, play in a fairly rare language such as Arabic. Only a few people will be playing at once (sometimes you will be the only person!) and so you are more likely to finish highly.
    TheDonSimeoni adds that if you are the only person in the game, this will not unlock. So make sure you have someone else with you.

    RonniesPorchWell, after getting in the top 70, 54, 64, etc percentiles, I finally unlocked the achievement by getting in the top 50%. exactly 50%. This triggered my last 2 achievements, which is weird, but it's done.

    I have been playing in Norsk and there seems to be only me and another player. I have some mid-level point games from guessing (since I do not know Norsk), so go ahead and try in that language. I have also been doing some Arabic puzzles and I seem to be the only one there, so if you feel lucky, try Arabic as well. This fits fairly well with the above comment (trying abstract languages) so just keep hammering it out. Just wanted to give an update on the game.

    Happy hunting!

    So I just got this the other day.

    I was having trouble with finding anyone in some of the foreign language rooms, and the ones I did, the people playing were actually very good and usually i would only make it above 30% of the people.

    I tried something different, I used an online boggle solver. (I know, cheating right?)

    I used this one: http://fuzzylogicinc.net/boggle/

    Choose 5 letter words to narrow it down to the higher scoring ones.

    As soon as the round begins, quickly enter the puzzle and click "solve puzzle"
    (when you have a split letter (eg. M/U) pick one of the letters)

    Some of the words are not correct in the game, but most are.

    You still need to be fast, but at least you can grab the high scoring ones. After you get yourself a bunch of points, if you have about 30 secs left, just do the easy 3 letter words to bridge the gap.

    To get above 50%, you'll need a score of above 400 points, likely closer to 600.

    Best of luck.

    tsmpriusSo that probably explains why I've played in some rounds with people who have gotten 300+ words per round. I never thought to use a boggle solver until I read your solution. clap

    Monkey540I'm not so sure about that. I mean using a solver is quite slow
