Asia Mongolian Horse Impossible Thu, 16 May 2013 20:33
Hello All,

Is there anyone, who solved the Mongolian Horse achievement? I think, it's impossible, I though and though and haven't find a way to win in 24 rounds. I only found 6 ways to win in 26 rounds.

Coule anyone help me?

Regards
Lukas

It's definitely not impossible, it's just deliberately hard.
Ideally, you want to be throwing trains down on mountain routes.

Consider this:
You have 45 trains and 23 turns to get rid of at LEAST 43 of them (to get to the last turn, turn 24). Meaning... just under 2 trains per turn. Now, you need cards to play these trains. You, therefore, need the smallest number of card draws for the maximum amount of trains played. Using 2 cards, you can get rid of 4 train carriages.
You start with 4, meaning that (given a good hand), you can be two turns in and 8 carriages lost. You then need to consistently get pairs or draw to make pairs, so you can get rid of 2 or 3 route mountain trains as quickly as possible.

My tips would be always use face up or blind pairs. Don't go for locomotives, it's a waste of a turn. Get any and all mountain routes you can. You need to think 'how can I maximise trains lost and minimise time taken?'
You can't sit and hoard in this achievement. It just won't work.

You need 21 mountain spaces to be able to 'go out'. Meaning that you can mathematically finish in 11 routes. 11 routes means you have 12 turns to get the cards you need. 11+12+last turn=24, so, on the 12 turns, you need to draw pairs. lucky, perhaps, but you need to continually draw cards to make up pairs. You, therefore, need 11 pairs. You can start with 2. meaning that you have 12 turns to get 9 pairs, in any configuration.

Hello,

Thank you for your answer. Thats the same theorie, that I use. And I found my mistake.
I forgot the 4 wagon carts in the beginning. Thats why I come to 26 rounds and not 24.

Today, I played 5 rounds and won the achievement. I never though, that it go so fast. Very Happy

That are my routes:

Now, I miss only 4 Achievements: 400+ in USA Mega, 1000 Games, 5000 Games and 20.000 Games.

The last 3 archievements are useless, I think. Evil or Very Mad

Thank you DAC cazaron.

Regards
Lukas

Hey, no problem!
Glad you got it done, that's great to hear!

Good luck with the other achievements, and if you ever get the 20 000 games played... then... you have too much time on your hands. But you'll be incredibly good by then.
By the looks of things in the screenshot, very nicely done.

Glad I could help (or be of some mathematical use).

Thank you. Smile
The 1.000 games are possible next time, but 5.000 & 20.000 are nonsense.
Also Ticket To Ride Player haven't all time of the world.

I hope I can win the 400+ Achievement next time. I'm only one time over 300 points (342), but I think it's possible.

Next time, I will look, that is the best KI for this Achievement.

Regards
Lukas

I agree, 5/20 thousand is insane.

I've done the 400 one... took a while, but realistically, LA-Las Vegas is the route you want. Connect that up to New York and watch the points roll in.

Vancouver-Seattle-Portland-San Francisco-LA-Phoenix-El Paso-Dallas-Houston-New Orleans-Atlanta-Nashville-Pittsburgh-New York-Boston-Montreal with routhes to Las Vegas, Chicago and ofher city in my cards.

I hope I win 400+ points before 20.000 games. Laughing
