This one will take a bit of time and manipulation. In order to unlock the achievement, you will need to create a 9-letter word that will span across both 'DW' bonuses at the same time. You can do this in a local 'Pass & Play' game. choose a word based on your starting letters from here:

You'll have to abuse the swap-tile feature, but if you keep doing that, the game will start giving you back the tiles you first swapped out. Just use what you don't want on another part of the board and hold or build part of the word you've selected, with the other tiles.

I used the word 'RETENTION' spanning from the upper-right 'DW' to the lower-right 'DW'

- I started with a word that ended with an 'N'. The 'N' was positioned between the two 'DW's
- Next, I built my letter up to the word 'EN'
- After a few turns, to 'TEN'
- A bit more tile-swapping and built it up to 'TENT'
- Now held the remaining tiles needed until I could complete the entire word 'RETENTION'
Just remember. You have to use both 'DW' spaces at the same time.

Good luck.

neeker75Retention FTW.
Posted by neeker75 on 03 Feb 13 at 18:26
B8TINGUI did this and used a wild card achievement, for retention on the starting star spanning both DL tiles.. Will try again without the wild card.
Posted by B8TINGU on 10 Feb 13 at 09:32
B8TINGUDid this again off the starting star no wild card tiles, nothing...then realized it had to be done on the DW tiles, NOT the DL again and BAM!! Unlocked!! Thumbs up from me! Thanks!

AC1DGro0ve 3o3Make sure you're not placing any tiles on the DW spaces until you can use both in the same turn.
Posted by AC1DGro0ve 3o3 on 06 Apr 13 at 02:04
NickMon68Really dont understand how you do this, local play ? and some how get the letters to make RETENTION in between the DW squares, how do you get to work out the words to get the right letters in ...
Posted by NickMon68 on 26 Apr 13 at 17:09
TheIcemanComethGreat solution, +1 from me! I wasn't able to follow the same pattern you did, but I used the same word. Did it first try. AlphaJax is done! smile
Posted by TheIcemanCometh on 27 Apr 13 at 01:11
AC1DGro0ve 3o3@NickMon68, Yes, in local play. You certainly don't have to use RETENTION, it can be any 9-letter word from the included URL above. I chose to use RETENTION, because of how many 'sub-words' it contained. (i.e., EN, TEN, TENT, etc.) Thus, allowing me to slowly build upon it. Then, finally finishing it off with the remaining tiles needed for the entire word. Make sure to use both 'DW' spaces at the same time. I've added some pics to help explain. Hope they help.

NickMon68@AC1DGr0ve 3o3 - Thanks for the info, and with the update above that makes it clear for me. Thanks for doing that.

olde fortran 77Wildcards work. I used the wildcard on one of the Double Word tiles and the achievement popped.

MCASguruWorked perfectly; thanks so much!
Posted by MCASguru on 27 Dec 13 at 10:57
CreuilI found an easy way:
I tried to follow your solution, i had a 7 letter word between both DW. I couldn't make a 9 letter word. So i tried random letters on both DW, word was not valid, i did not remove bad letters, i gave up and achievement unlocked. Sorry for my bad English, i'm french.

Im the LoraxDifferent words to get there but retention was perfect thank u
Posted by Im the Lorax on 29 Jun 14 at 12:45
lfcjohnwork like a charm!! got this for 1st time try to build up the word retention.

just to confirm don't need to be your main account for local play.

BROOKER 513underaged, doesn't fucking work even though its in the dictionary
Posted by BROOKER 513 on 16 May 18 at 04:46
squsoI wasn't paying attention while I did this in local play. I did 'STANDINGS' on the local users turn and it still unlocked. It looks like it doesn't have to be your main account that makes the word.
