Note: The achievement We Need More Wood! is currently not tracking correctly - the community has found a potential fix to do with the build order of wonders. See the bottom of this guide for the potential fix.

------

These 15 wonders are covered by 3 civilizations: The Chinese, Indians and Japanese.

On the Main Menu select Skirmish
Change these settings:
Home City: Chinese(Beijing) / Indians(Delhi) / Japanese (Edo) - This is the Flag icon to the right of your gamertag - choose the one you want to start with
Select Death Match
Starting Age: Exploration Age
Difficulty: Standard

Start the game and select your villagers.
On the build Menu - Select the II Icon. A menu of 5 wonders will appear. Select the first one (start from left to right)
Place it down so your villagers start to build and enter this cheat code: speed always wins
Once built, select your villagers and build the next one.

Note: You can only build 3 per game, once 3 have been built - quit game, restart and build the remaining 2 wonders.

Once you've built 5 wonders from one of those 3 civilizations, switch to the next and repeat.
Once all 15 have been built the achievement will unlock.

The community has found a fix for the achievement for building all buildings involving wonders. This is to do with the build order.
*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***
HolyHalfDeadI wouldn't waste your time building 3 wonders every match. Just build 1 wonder each match (15 matches).

Sky Maniacor 3 a match for 6 games in total.
Doing 1 a match makes no sense...

Baris DoganEasier solution: Go to scenario editor, make a new one, place object, search for "WON" place all and be done in 1 minute :)

SkinfasstBaris Dogan's solution is much faster and better than the original one. Thanks.

Sky Maniac@Baris Dogan & Skinfasst
while that is quicker (See GoldenBrown87's guide) these are required to be built for the achievement:
Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition (Win 10)We need more wood!The We need more wood! achievement in Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition (Win 10) worth 102 pointsBuild every building

Therefor, to save time you may as well build - but if you just want this achievement quickly then scenario editior is much quicker.

Skinfasst@Ski Maniac I think Baris Dogan's solution is better because it is quicker and easier. You don't have to remember which other buildings you are laying down, or which wonders you have built in any particular game. Just do them all and it's done in one minute. Then you can move on to the other building cheevo and forget about the Wonders (which anyway wouldn't all be built in one game). So yes, thank you for your solution but the other one is better.

GoldenBrown87's guide is much quicker (give it a + vote)
However, those wonders still need to be built for We need more wood! placing them down doesn't count as building them. While your building the wonders you can always build the other buildings from those civs to speed up that achievement too.
As I said if you just want that achievement quick then the guide GoldenBrown87 has wrote is much quicker.
