Even though this is a relatively easy achievement to get, I thought I would post some tips for people playing against AI (which is how I got it), especially for those who plan on using the Wipeout bonus card.

- Before you begin, select Custom Game, set the AI to "Novice" and turn the Bonus Cards "On".

- Focus first on getting your pawns back home as quickly as possible. If you can knock out other players on the way, excellent, but don't make it a priority until you have at least two of your pawns home (or earlier if you find yourself lagging behind).

- Try to keep a pawn in Start until you have a Sorry card and then use that to knock out another player.

- If you get a Sideswipe card, try to hold onto it as long as you can, as using it can take out multiple opponents at the same time if they are all on the side of the board you're "swiping" down.

- To ensure you don't waste turns trying to get your pawns Home, try to hoard "7" cards for when you have a pawn enter your safe zone (the path up to your Home). Since you can split the 7 card between two pawns, you can use it to move the exact number of spaces needed to get you Home and use the remaining on another pawn.

- If you end up having your last pawn(s) on the board ahead of someone you need to take out, you can set yourself up to get knocked out and sent back to Start (and use a Sorry card if you have it on your next turn). To do this, try to landing on the corner squares next to the other players Homes or right on one of their exit squares (if you have an 11 card, just swap pawns with someone as there is almost always at least one pawn on one of these squares). Waiting on one of these squares will greatly increase your chances in getting knocked out by another player before your next turn.

The Wipeout Bonus Card

Using the Wipeout card sends the furthest pawn from each player all the way back to their Start, so it would seem to be the perfect thing to use to help accomplish this achievement. However, keep in mind the following:

- Don't actually plan on getting the Wipeout card at all. You can play several games without it ever coming up for you.

- The Wipeout card does not affect pawns in the "safe zone" so try to use it while all the other players have pawns on the main board path.

- The Wipeout card sends the furthest pawn from each player all the way back to Start. Including your own. This can really screw up your game if you aren't aware that it can happen. I used a Wipeout card when my 4th pawn was right outside my safe zone and was ticked when I realized it sent me back to Start along with everyone else (and of course I ended up getting stuck there and lost the game).

So, if you get a Wipeout card, don't use it until your last pawn is in your safe zone. Of course you can always use it at your own discretion - if you get it early in the game and/or you're lagging behind all the other players, the Wipeout card can help even the field again and give you a second chance to pull ahead.

Hope this helps some people avoid a frustrating time trying to get this achievement!
