    This achievement requires paid content.

    To earn this achievement, you must unlock 6 medals cumulatively in Game Room. Each medal is only counted once. If you unlock the Bronze Time Spender, and then unlock the Silver Time Spender, that is still only one medal.

    Medals can only be earned in ranked play, and in games that you either own, are purchasing sessions with using the 40 MS point option, or on games that your console is licensed to (i.e. Someone else bought that game on your console). Medals can NOT be earned in demo play, classic play, or if you are using tokens to play a friend's machine.

    There are three medal varieties:
    Point Buster : These medals are awarded when you reach certain score targets.
    Survivalist : These medals are awarded for surviving a set amount of time in a single play.
    Time Spender : These medals are awarded for cumulative game play.

    Every game has a Time Spender medal. Note that Time Spender medals can be earned in ranked or classic play, and are cumulative between game sessions. Most games also have a Point Buster and Survivalist medal. Medals "upgrade" as you progress. What this means is that if you have a Bronze medal and suddenly earn a Silver medal, you only have a Silver Medal. This will only count as 1 medal. Bronze, silver, and gold medals all count.

    A chart of which games have which medals available, and the goals that must be met to get those medals is posted here:

    This will require you to purchase and play at least 2 different games in the Game Room.

    Each game has 3 different medals to win (Point Buster, Survivalist, Time Spender). Each medal type has a Bronze, Silver, and Gold medal. Earn at least the Bronze medal for each medal type on 2 games and this is yours.

    Note: This is possible to obtain across any amount of games with any combination of medal types.

    You only need 6 bronzes medals, but for 6 fairly easy golds, even if you are kind of a mediocre arcader like myself, buy Crystal Castles and Astrosmash.

    Crystal Castles ~
    ~On first screen go to the back of the play area in the corner and you will find a secret jump spot. Press A to jump here and you will immediately get your gold medal out of the way ;)
    ~ The hardest part is Surviving 6 minutes. For this you need to start a new game, wait til all 3 enemies have come around the corner, then run around to the jump spot and sit there. When the hornets come down about the 5th time they will try to land on you. Run around in a big circle til they get you.Do this 3 times and on the last time use your jump point. Go to the left elevator and go up and wait. Do this again for your extra life and you should just manage 6 minutes.
    ~ Now just repeat the above til you have 3 shiny golds ;)

    Astrosmash ~ just shoot the rocks, the white spinners and the little evil blinking stalkers and dodge from side to side. The 40,000 point gold medal will also net you the Survivalist gold. Repeat for 3 total golds.
