This achievement is not that hard, provided you have two controllers. First, start a 'local' game, with the profile getting the achievement, and some other profile on controller number 2. Play an 'original' game. It does not matter whom goes first. Have the other player discard tiles until they get the letters 'TENT', while you continually discard tiles to get 'ATIVE'. Have the second player place 'TENT' on the center, but (this is important) the LAST T being the center (the letter that goes on the diamond space). The profile that is getting the achievement, places 'ATIVE' behind this, to make 'TENTATIVE'.

Voila. Now, the worst part is, you actually have to FINISH the game. But consider that you can discard tiles, pass turns, etc, and it should finish eventually.

If you are trying to get 'A Column of 7' achievement as well, then make sure the 'TENT' player places the word vertically, with room on the bottom to place 'ATIVE'.
The GlobalizerOther ways to get this include putting words like "ION" or "OVER" on the board and building from those.

I just got this by playing ION and then wrapping STATIONED around it.

Leo AscendentYou no longer need to finish, it pops right away.

ZeroDesolationTook me about 5 mins to get it using your method. You need to update your guide to reflect that the achievement pops as soon as you end your turn.

SANDROCKLQExtremely effective solution. I would have gotten this playing randomly since I enjoy Scrabble, but time is precious sometimes. Well done.
