    Now you will need at least 3 tabs open, go to http://jackbox,tv and enter the room code on your screen, once in the game you will be asked to draw two pictures with each player, Make sure you can tell which is your player's paintings. Once drawn its time to start the auction.

    In order for the option to take out loans to appear someone must spend all their money to reach $0, now hopefully the first drawing is your main player's drawing which means just have players 2 and 3 bid up to their maximum of $3000 to reach $0. Now all 3 players will get the chance to 'Get A Loan' which will add $1000 to your money though you will pay back $1500 at the end. Its best to get loans with all 3 players to avoid your player losing more than them.

    Now what you want to do is bid on every painting drawn by the other players with your player for the lowest amount of $400 to maximise profit when the auction ends and have the other players bid their highest for your paintings. During each auction you have the option to 'Call the Bank' which opens the option to take out a loan at the end of the auction where you again want to 'Get A Loan' with all 3 players.
    Do this 3 times and you'll be given 'Bad Credit' and the option to call the bank will be gone, you're now set for the achievement.

    Play the game out and once all paintings are bought its time for the profits to be added up, now you bought all the paintings cheap which meant 2 things, 1. You get a big profit and 2. the other players got a tiny amount back.

    As all 3 players took out loans they all lose the same amount so who ever wins will meet the achievements criteria and it will be yours!
