    UPDATE: This is now possible to get without spending MSP by using "demo" time in a friend's game room. See the comments below, and thanks to those that have provided the update.

    You can access your friend's game rooms by selecting "Friends" in the main menu.

    "Tokens" DO NOT WORK to pop this achievement. You must either own the game yourself, and play your friend's copy, or spend 40 MSP to pay for the play in your friend's game room.

    If you like me have no friends that are invested in Game Room I found that the Games work like any other DLC in that any other Gamertag connected to XBL will share whatever is downloaded...

    So if you already have or don't mind spending a little time making a dummy account you can get this achievement pretty easily....

    Basically use your dummy account (must have XBL activity...does not need to be Gold just XBL connectivity....Silver will do fine) launch Game room and just create a new arcade...you'll find that any arcade games you've bought will be accessible by the dummy account...after creating the Arcade (make sure the Dummy account is on your friends list) simply sign into your main account then visit your dummy accounts arcade and play one of your games and the achievement should pop up once the game starts...

    Note: Keep in Mind that all the DLC limitations Apply so if you simply take your hard drive to a friends this will not work as the license is linked to the console you originally downloaded the Games to...so you could have a friend bring their Gamertag over via Memory Card or Flash Drive and have them set up an arcade on your console but it has to be on the console you originally bought the content for...

    From the main menu, go to "Friends" and then choose a friend's name. Hit the X button to visit their arcade. In order to play a game in their game cabinet, you will either have to shell out 40 Microsoft Points for a single playthough, or play a game which you already own.

    If you want to know which of your friends have a game you own, go to your arcade, choose on of your own games, and go to the leaderboards. Use the LB or RB to scroll to "Friend Rankings".
