    This achievement is not that hard, provided you have two controllers. First, start a 'local' game, with the profile getting the achievement, and some other profile on controller number 2. Play an 'original' game. It does not matter whom goes first. Have the other player discard tiles until they get the letters 'TENT', while you continually discard tiles to get 'ATIVE'. Have the second player place 'TENT' on the center, but (this is important) the LAST T being the center (the letter that goes on the diamond space). The profile that is getting the achievement, places 'ATIVE' behind this, to make 'TENTATIVE'.

    Voila. Now, the worst part is, you actually have to FINISH the game. But consider that you can discard tiles, pass turns, etc, and it should finish eventually.

    If you are trying to get 'A Column of 7' achievement as well, then make sure the 'TENT' player places the word vertically, with room on the bottom to place 'ATIVE'.

    ZeroDesolationTook me about 5 mins to get it using your method. You need to update your guide to reflect that the achievement pops as soon as you end your turn.

    SANDROCKLQExtremely effective solution. I would have gotten this playing randomly since I enjoy Scrabble, but time is precious sometimes. Well done.

    I used the website --- i kept discarding tiles until i had the letters "ers", which is a word. i placed them vertically on the board, then type all 10 letters (the 3 on the board and the 7 in your hand) into the website and hope a 9 letter word came up. if not, build small words off the side of the vertical "ers" and keep trying to get it. i got this on the first try using this technique. it also is good if your lucky enough to get a blank tile, which will definetely help.

    To do this achievement you are going to need some letters on the board. Basically the achievement title describes it all. Use 5 or more tiles from your rack to spell a 9 letter word. This is easier done playing a solo game because you can set the words up however you want them and don't have to worry about another player screwing your plays up. If you're not very good at spelling, or you don't want to think, check out
    Enter the letters you want to use in your word, and it will give you every word in the Scrabble dictionary with those letters in it.

    Hoffmanyeah it does do that. I figured that's what you meant, but wasn't sure. You have to look for one that has that word already in it. Example - ANGER on the board. you have DYKLUOS on your tiles. DANGEROUSLY would be the new word for the achievement.
