    Actually this is very easy to get.

    First, Make a NEW HERO and pick the BARBARIAN.

    Enter a QUICK BATTLE and scroll through (LB or RB) the monster until you get GOBLIN and battle it.

    The only two attacks the goblin will do are SNEAK ATTACK (3 damage) and SHORTSWORD (3 damage). As you battle the goblin its very important that you don't let it get any 4 or 5 matching skulls or any +5 skulls. This is because the Barbarian's starting health is 34, so if the goblin kept doing attacks of 3 you'll end up with 1 hp if you let it.

    So fight the goblin till you get his hp pretty low, then just start setting up skulls for him but to avoid letting him get any 4 or 5 in a rows or +5 skulls. When you hit 1 hp, just use Pummel or match a skull and there ya go!

    Edit: If you get a 12x12 board instead of the 8x8, it might be a good idea to exit and start another battle because it's difficult to control a 12x12 board compared to a 8x8.

    Also It might help to put it on Easy, the goblin's health doesn't change, but I noticed that he sets up less chains on Easy.

    And don't forget to not let those +5 skull fall near other skulls, let the goblin do that so you can use them.

    LunarKnightXThanks, I thought I'd have to hope for dumb luck to get this; but got it on my first go with your guide.

    Agent SpankI'm sorry that you had trouble GrokAgnok, I'm guessing that you kept getting a 12x12 board instead of the 8x8? That might be why, it's more difficult to control the board when it's that big. If not, then I'm sorry for your rotten luck, we all know how this game tends to play in the opponents favor.

    DiachronI'll second Grok's sentiments on this. Straightforward to unlock, but still subject to luck. I had a number of unlucky runs with mana drains, last minute +5 skulls.. hell-- the goblin even managed to block what was supposed to be his death blow on two occasions.

    I don't think there's a quicker way to unlock, so this is a sound strategy (so thanks, Agent Spank). I'm just saying be prepared to go through what could be potentially many attempts. (Or you can get lucky right off the bat).

    All in all I think many of the achievements in PQ2 are pretty dumb. I still miss the first one.

    xgameheroThis worked for me on my first try, however the achievement didn't unlock. I assume its because I'm not connected to data or wifi...
