First make sure you got a monopoly ( all street/utilities of one color) then go to manage properties when its your turn, and buy houses on the monopoly you own. Managing properties can be done before and after you roll the dice.

To setup you will need four controllers

Step 1: Start a classic game on any board with four human players
Step 2: You can start this as soon as your player (first player) and one other player has a property
Step 3: Trade all the money into your player (first player) and one other player

To make sure that you get this achievement, trade all property to your first player:
MonopolyNo MercyNoRmAlMaNzzThe No Mercy achievement in Monopoly worth 23 pointsBe responsible for the bankruptcy of another player


Step 4: This should quickly bankrupt two of the players which allows your first player to get achievements much faster because they get a turn every two turns rather then every four turns
Once this is done, you will only need two controllers
You can also take breaks as you need with Monopoly's autosave function
(To quit and save, use the first player controller Press Start > Quit)

Below are the achievements you can gain while setting up and/or playing through:

MonopolyEverybody Starts SomewhereNoRmAlMaNzzThe Everybody Starts Somewhere achievement in Monopoly worth 10 pointsBuy your first property

MonopolyNow You're On Your WayNoRmAlMaNzzThe Now You're On Your Way achievement in Monopoly worth 20 pointsOwn your first monopoly

MonopolyDeal Of The CenturyNoRmAlMaNzzThe Deal Of The Century achievement in Monopoly worth 21 pointsForm a monopoly as a result of trading

MonopolyClimbing Your Way Up The LadderNoRmAlMaNzzThe Climbing Your Way Up The Ladder achievement in Monopoly worth 32 pointsBuild your first set of houses. Classic mode only.

MonopolyYou've Got The PowerNoRmAlMaNzzThe You've Got The Power achievement in Monopoly worth 21 pointsOwn the monopoly on the utilities

MonopolyTransport KingNoRmAlMaNzzThe Transport King achievement in Monopoly worth 22 pointsOwn the monopoly on the transport properties

MonopolyTaking SidesNoRmAlMaNzzThe Taking Sides achievement in Monopoly worth 55 pointsOwn every property, including any ports and utilities, down one whole side of the board

MonopolyThe View From The TopNoRmAlMaNzzThe The View From The Top achievement in Monopoly worth 56 pointsBuild your first set of hotels. Classic mode only.


Below are also achievements you can gain while setting up and/or playing through BUT they are also luck-based.
I PRAY for you that you get lucky and get it randomly at the beginning.
This was NOT the case for me. If you have gotten all the achievements from above, there is a strategy for you to move through turns quickly and it wont bankrupt the other player

MonopolyHigh RollerNoRmAlMaNzzThe High Roller achievement in Monopoly worth 11 pointsRoll a double six

MonopolyRolled To FreedomNoRmAlMaNzzThe Rolled To Freedom achievement in Monopoly worth 12 pointsRolled a double to get out of jail

MonopolyRolled To JailNoRmAlMaNzzThe Rolled To Jail achievement in Monopoly worth 13 pointsRoll three doubles in a row and get sent to jail


Step 1: Mortgage all the properties of both players so that no one will get bankrupt (Due to GO Money)
Step 2: Just keep rolling until these achievements happen.

Note: the mortagage method will not allow you to build houses/hotels so hopefully you can get the first batch of achievements before you bankrupt the second player so that you won't have to reset it all up

At the end you can also gain this achievement if you just trade all of first player's money to the second player and bankrupt yourself:
MonopolyWent For BrokeNoRmAlMaNzzThe Went For Broke achievement in Monopoly worth 11 pointsBankrupted yourself out of the game for the first time


You can also use the WORLD BOARD if you want to get this achievement (Though, I think you dun get the WORLD BOARD till later):
MonopolyGlobe TrotterNoRmAlMaNzzThe Globe Trotter achievement in Monopoly worth 111 pointsLand on every property on the World board
