Pretty much the same as Mr. Mastery McMasterson

The quickest way to win a game of minesweeper is to play on easy, but I found the best points/hr ratio came from playing on normal difficulty. Your first move will never hit a mine, and should clear quite a few spaces. There are some minesweeper solvers available, but I didn't find one that works well enough to recommend.

For chess, playing on easy gets you relatively few points, but you can win quickly. If you use the same set of moves each time, the computer will do the same thing as well. So, a winning pattern will always win. UPDATE: Here is Dark Lord White's pattern:
Pawn E2 - E3
Queen D1- H5
Pawn E3 - E4
Bishop F1 - C4
Queen H5 - F7

However, I found that using an online chess opponent while playing against Hard got me to advance quickly. A win on Easy gets you 70 nts, while a win on hard gets you 800. Play as Black in your online game, and input the White moves that the computer makes into the Game Chest board. With the multiplier from the Big Wheel, 800 points quickly gets you through the levels.

Sudoku is easy on any level, if you want to use hints. Simply start a game, go to each open cell and hit the ? in the upper left corner. If you do that in each cell, you'll complete the level. Play on Hard and rack up the points quickly.

Finally, you need to play chess against another player. You can boost, though I found that there aren't many WP7 players who boost on Fortunately, you can play against a web player (including yourself on a second account). Simply start a game on your phone, and invite your second account (can be a silver account). Your second account will get an email with a link to the game. When you start the game on the web, you can make one move and then resign the game (as your second player). When that player resigns, you win. Do this about 12 times, and you will get to level 20 in the Competitive pins.

Get to level 20 for each of them, and you'll get all of the pins and unlock the achievement.
