    This method requires two controllers or two people over xbl.

    The goal here is to win a game without capturing any enemy pieces. This can be attained through winning a local match without having to lay down a single piece.

    Before starting the game press X at the game options screen to switch sides allowing the guest account to go first.

    Once the game has started press B on the second controller to pass the turn and then do the same with the achievement controller.

    All that's left is to press A to accept the terms of surrender and the achievement is yours!

    EDIT: Please leave a comment, question or suggestion and I'll do my best to get back to you as soon as possible as this solution does work. Thank-you!

    AdolphMarxThis is the only negative vote I have on any of my solutions and surprise, surprise; it comes without reason. If I only knew what was wrong I might be able to fix it...

    Chris8875Great solution mate - pity about the negative vote - wish I could cancel it out with a positive one!! And I think Wulf is right - neither player can capture a piece ... which, if that's the case, makes this a pretty silly achievement.

    AdolphMarxlol, True that. Negative thumbs down would be a good idea to counter those who vote without reason. Although; I think forced comments for negative voters would be an even greater tool to impliment on this site.

    AdolphMarx's solution is quick and painless.

    In case you want to win this by actually playing against the AI, as I did:

    Play against the AI on the easiest difficulty.

    The AI can capture your stones and the achievement will still trigger. Also, the AI can finish the game with "dead" stones in your territory. You just can't capture them during play.

    Good luck!
