    Here is an extremely easy way to get this achievement.

    At the start of the game set the "Turn Time" to "Off", and the "Match Time" to 30 minutes. Now make sure that you go first (keep restarting until it happens). Finally, just leave the game running (have your controller plugged in to prevent it disconnecting) for most of the 30 minutes, then enter your word about 10 seconds before the countdown ends. The AI will not have time to enter their words.

    You can also do this on the "Child's Play" and "Floats Like a Butterfly" achievements. The achievements are not stackable, so you will need to do them separately.

    InfectedFoxIf your word isn’t great just make sure to not press anything when the timer runs out. After several seconds the achievement will pop. I did this with the hard cpu achievement as well.

    ragnarok0272Once I was the first to play, I didn't do anything other than put a simple three letter word on the board without hitting "Y" to confirm. Once time ran out, I won and got the achievement. I meant to confirm, but got sidetracked and wasn't paying attention. Still got the achievement.

    Jordan650It's already been said but because of hidden comments I didnt see. 10 seconds gives the AI time to post a word and beat you, better to hit Y with 5 seconds left. I had an achievement not unlock after loading a saved game, so don't load a saved game. I also tried leaving the letters and not pressing Y, that didnt work either.

    I believe the easiest way to get this achievement is to use the Scrabble board provided within this link:

    Simply enter in the letters used by the AI on to the game board (if they have a turn before yourself) and type out the selection of letters you have been given along the board. After each of the above instructions has been done and it is your turn, click the 'Get Solutions' tab on the right hand side of the screen and let the program work its magic and follow its instructions. Keep updating the board with the letters the AI are given and the letters you are handed out to replace the previously used ones until the game is finally over. I attempted this method several times and it has yet to fail me. Using this method I was able to unlock a lot of the other achievements, so it is highly recommended if you are looking to unlock them all.

    PLEASE NOTE: The achievements required for beating the different difficulty levels of AI are not stackable, however if you continue to use this method, you will have no trouble at all.

    KinectKid333I placed a word that covered two DW (double word) tiles, so the value should have been quadrupled, but no! The value was only doubled! The devs of this game couldn't even code proper Scrabble rules! What the frick

    To get all the achievements in this game, including this one, I just used a scrabble solver.
    Namely this one: You input the computer's moves and fill the rack section with your letters. When it's your turn, just click go and it finds the best possible move for you. There are a couple words in the solver that aren't allowed, but if you run into one, just use the 2nd or 3rd best word. It almost always handily defeats the AI. Took me about 5 minutes for this achievement using this.
