9. Hasbro Family Game Night Scrabble

Scrabble

Welcome to Scrabble, the most hated game pack of the Family Game Night series because if you live outside of North America, or don't own a NTSC console, chances are you'll never be able to play this pack. Anyway, let's not get hung up on that fact and focus on you, because if you're reading this page it's safe to assume that you can play this pack and want to know the best way to go about the achievements!

Now Scrabble is the longest game pack and will take you at least 2-3 hours. You'll also need two controllers and access to Xbox LIVE. Finally, remember to make use of this site when playing to help you find words you can spell.

So first off set up a custom single player game and turn on "hot letters". The goal of the game is to pick up a win and a few achievements along the way. Use the analog stick to shake the bag until it's on fire every turn. Once the bag is on fire quickly press to deal out the letters and some of the letters should be on fire. Now spell a word with at least one "on fire" letter. Obviously the shorter the word the quicker you'll complete the word and ensure the flaming tile doesn't go out. Once you spelt a total of 5 'on fire' words hit "Y" and end the game. This will unlock the following two achievements:

Head back out and set up a new game. This time set up a two player game of Bridge Builders. The rules of this game are very basic. Unlike regular Scrabble, where you can build on any laid tiles by any player, in this mode you can only build off tiles that you laid. Since you are in control of both players, it makes this achievement very easy. Start on one side of the board (say the left) and each turn either place tiles vertically or horizontally off your previous word until you reach the other side of the board. Once you've done so, finish the game and you'll unlock thid achievement:

Next, set up a single player game. We'll be snagging two achievements in this game. Head on over to this site and make use of it. When you're dealt your letters put them into the site and see if you can spell a word using ALL of your letters. If you can, lay the tiles vertically and you're done. If you can't make a word keep discarding tiles and drawing new ones until you can. Eventually you'll draw one that works. Once you've laid the tiles (make sure you placed them vertically), finish the game up and you'll unlock two achievements:

A column of 7

Place 5+ tiles in one go to create a vertical 7 letter word. Only available in NA & English.

There's a great method to getting this next achievement. Once you've been dealt your tiles check and see if you have the letters 'E', 'R' and 'S'. If you do, lay them down, starting from the middle spot (to ensure you have enough room). If you don't have those tiles, keep discarding tiles until you do. Now once you've placed your 'E', 'R', and 'S' make use of this site once more, put in all of the letters you currently have and the letters 'E', 'R' and 'S'. You need to spell a 9 lettered word in total. If you managed to draw a blank tile that will come in very handy. If you're unable to place enough tiles to unlock this achievement then spell a word off the letters already played. Be sure though that if you placed the 'E', 'R', and 'S' vertically, play off them horizontally (and vice versa) so to not mess up your method. Once you've laid 6 letters onto the letters 'E', 'R' and 'S' you'll unlock this achievement:

Lengthy Word

Place 5+ tiles in one go to create a 9 letter word. Scrabble is only available in NA & English.

Chances are by now that you've unlocked this next achievement. If not just set up a single player game and leave it idle until you feel an appropriate amount of time has passed, then hit "Y" to end the game and see if the achievement pops. If it doesn't unlock keep repeating this step until it does.

Here we go... the online achievement. The online mode to this game is very dead, so you'll need to head over to the gaming sessions page and find yourself a boosting partner. The good news is that neither of you need to win, you just need to play the match until its conclusion and once the game finishes you'll both unlock the last achievement:
