    >2 Kinect titles.

    Oh come on.

  • Rul3sK

    rats only have 2 out of the 4.

  • K.Y. Parsons

    Thanks! I have all the games =] here’s my chance!

  • http://twitter.com/yamayamayaamaa «-•·÷·- ¥ámá -·÷·•-»

    FINALLY I have 12 achievements (out of all 4 games). I hope I win!

  • https://twitter.com/downsouthtigger Fred

    sweet all 4 games & 14 cheeves! Maybe I’ll enter this week

  • Logan

    I only have castle crashers and i only have three of the four chievements :/

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=675166986 Michael Alexander Clarke

    Well I have 3 of these games but I don’t think I’m gonna bother trying to get all 12 cheeves from them. Hate Poker and haven’t ever played Wreckateer. Only got it ’cause it’s free.

  • Giovanni Sosa

    well i guess its time to plug in the kinect and try to get at least two achievements in Wrecketeer and in fruit ninja.

  • sans gluten

    Woohoo! Got 13 already :)

  • Anonymous

    I finally have all four games, but I’ve barely played two of them, and haven’t even launched one of them, so I’ll have to pass this weekend.

    I have all of the Full House Poker achievements though.

  • Slam Shot Sam

    Damn, I’ve got the achievements in Fruit Ninja and Castle Crashers and picked up Wreckateer free, but it’s also my birhday this weekend, so too bust to be playing Wreckateer.

        There’s an edit button so you don’t need to make a second post. Not intending to be a git, just pointing it out for anyone that was unaware.

  • Squirrel

    This is only the second one I’ve ever qualified for (having 3 games). Was just missing Fruit Ninja cheevos. Good luck to all who enter.

    I think I’m down to the Mulligans.

  • http://twitter.com/MyLastThought Justin

    Word of warning, Wreckateer’s Once More With Feeling takes quite a while to get, so prepare yourself if you’re going for that. Good news is if you need the others as well you should have no problem picking them up along the way.

    • http://www.xbox-united.com/ Scratch

      I got it. Took awhile but I managed to get them. My arms feel like I’ve flown south for the winter. You were right though, I got the others and more trying to rack up mulligans. Thanks. Good luck to those that entered.

    Got it done! Sent in my entry!

  • trent82

    Just barely got this one done.

  • jeddy

    Do I put anything else in the email other than my gamertag link? And should the subject be “Weekend Achievement Challenge”? Thanks for any help.

  • XBLA_Vulcan

    Winners have been contacted. Thanks everyone!

    • Squirrel

      Thanks for letting us know! I was wondering if I had won and it was delayed, or if lost this one and would have to keep frantically checking email all day.

    I never seem to have any luck when it comes to the WAC… Sucks too, considering I very rarely have the games to enter.
