It is easier to get this achievement if you set your options to Fast Play and Fast Start. That way you only need to acquire 4 additional victory points to win the game. Take a starting position that makes it easy to acquire development cards. I won this achievement by placing 1 additional settlement, acquiring 1 victory point card, and using the road builder card to complete the longest road.
Foobar III The fast start and fast play never occurred to me. Took two attempts, but got it with longest road, biggest army and a victory card. Thanks!

Curtieson Very nice thought.

I did it legit, but this would have worked. Sucks though...I played 1 game with 2 Comps thinking it would get it for me (playing against 2 makes it quicker and easier) and was ticked when I realized the Desc states 4 players, AHH!!! haha

DominusTenebrae Got it on the 2nd attempt. Good solution.

BTW could you add to the solution that the difficulties don't stack. Neither difficulty achievement mentions this.

Failure Online THANK YOU!!! Only took me two tries after this. X360A guide or forums doesn't mention this. You are amazing =)

Stavia I'm not sure I even knew those options were there. Thanks to the advice about development cards I had biggest army and longest road before I knew it, and poof! First try with your method, took a year of failure without. Thanks a ton!

Richard Gear Changing the AI to Elizabeth also helps, she seems to be a weaker player.
