    Note: The achievement We Need More Wood! is currently not tracking correctly - the community has found a potential fix to do with the build order of wonders. See the bottom of this guide for the potential fix.


    These 15 wonders are covered by 3 civilizations: The Chinese, Indians and Japanese.

    On the Main Menu select Skirmish
    Change these settings:
    Home City: Chinese(Beijing) / Indians(Delhi) / Japanese (Edo) - This is the Flag icon to the right of your gamertag - choose the one you want to start with
    Select Death Match
    Starting Age: Exploration Age
    Difficulty: Standard

    Start the game and select your villagers.
    On the build Menu - Select the II Icon. A menu of 5 wonders will appear. Select the first one (start from left to right)
    Place it down so your villagers start to build and enter this cheat code: speed always wins
    Once built, select your villagers and build the next one.

    Note: You can only build 3 per game, once 3 have been built - quit game, restart and build the remaining 2 wonders.

    Once you've built 5 wonders from one of those 3 civilizations, switch to the next and repeat.
    Once all 15 have been built the achievement will unlock.

    Chinese Wonders
    - Confucian Academy
    - Porcelain Tower
    - Summer Palace
    - Temple of Heaven
    - White Pagoda

    Indian Wonders

    HolyHalfDeadI wouldn't waste your time building 3 wonders every match. Just build 1 wonder each match (15 matches).

    Sky Maniacor 3 a match for 6 games in total.
    Doing 1 a match makes no sense...

    I was able to achieve this very quickly by placing all the wonders on the map in the scenario editor.

    - From the main menu, choose Tools -> Scenario Editor
    - In the scenario editor, click Objects -> Place object...
    - In the place objects window there is a black text box to filter objects; type WON to filter just the wonders (For me, there are 4 duplicates of every Wonder?)
    - Simply place one of each of the wonders (excluding duplicates) and the achievement should unlock.

    You can also click the 'Ignore placement restrictions' checkbox in the Objects menu to overlap wonders to save space if required.

    If done right, this should unlock without even having to playtest the scenario.

    This worked for me. I hope it works for you.

    jrod39While this works, it's worth pointing out that placing the Wonders this way does NOT count them towards We Need More Wood (for building every building in game).
