This achievement will unlock once you have an average word score of 20 points or more across all online games played, not just a single game after you have played your first 10 words.

If you've played the WP version a lot you may find you are quite a bit below the required 20 points average. I was on 14 average with around 110 games played and it took about an hour of only scoring 40+ points per word to reach 20 points average.

This can be checked in the statistics menu and is called 'Avg Move:'

Credit to Minioger for this info:

passing and swapping count as a move and decrease your average as they are 0 points!!

I ended up getting it by starting a game and getting a 20+ point word or resigning right away! Resigning doesn't hurt your average score (it doesn't count as a move).

EDIT: Credit to Humpurton for letting me know local games DO NOT count.
Hampshire VeganI have 550+ moves made with an average of 12 from playing the WP version. Guess I've got some serious grinding to do!

Arsenic 17yeah maybe they will reset stats again at some point. maybe even when the windows phone version releases. cant count on it though. i have 800 moves and average of 16. I calculated it will take me about 200 more moves, averaging 35 score per word to get me up to 20. Not too bad of a grind, about 5-10 games I figured of solid work. I feel bad for the others that have to grind much longer for a BS achievement that screws Windows Phone gamers and does nothing but encourage more cheating lol

Homunculus Fury122 moves average 9. Since I am math dumb can someone tell me how much work I need to put into this one?

Chunkeh MunkehIf you consistently get 40+ points a word, you are probably looking at around 2 hours of play time...but that is just based on how long it took me as my words made was pretty much the same as yours but I had a higher avg score
Posted by Chunkeh Munkeh on 13 Jul 13 at 02:00
Homunculus FuryThank you for the response. So I i get a game where I won't score a high word I can resign and it won't hurt my score correct?

Chunkeh MunkehYup =)

KimitchiiCan you "boost" it on "local game" ? Thanks
Posted by Kimitchii on 14 Jul 13 at 22:21
Chunkeh MunkehI honestly have no idea. It is very likely that you cannot as quite a lot of the achievements had to be dine in an online match. Try it and check your stats after a bit...let me know either way and I can update the solution.

TheTechFanIf you'd like to calculate the number of moves required to get to an average word score of 20, you can use the following equation (where n is the number of moves required):

(expected average of future words - 20)n = 20(moves played) - (current average * moves played)

For example, if you expect to make 35 points from each future word, your current average is 15, and you've made 200 moves, the equation would look like the following:

(35 - 20)n = 20(200) - (15 * 200)

Which can be simplified as follows:

15n = 4000 - 3000
15n = 1000
n = 67 moves

I hope this helps!

XtowersJust looked back at this again and realized swapping and passing counts as a move. Sheesh. Been spinning my wheels at 15 avg for a while now, I guess. Had about 700 games played, with a 15 average. Seems I'll have to make another 700 moves at 25 points each to get to 20 average. Or another 70 moves, if I can average 70 points a movesroll.

Vermin360I suddenly don't feel like even bothering with this Achievement now, after reading the solution. I thought it was in a single game, not across all. Sad clown.
