Halloween Achievements Question (contains minor spoilers) Thu, 18 October 2012 16:46
For pumpkin master, the achievement says win while claiming all orange routes. Does that mean all the routes you claim must be orange (making it very difficult to complete any tickets) or that you must claim all of the orange routes on the board in addition to winning?

For the ghost achievement, it says to catch all five ghosts but the icon completed after I grabbed the two on the menu screens and I can't seem to catch any during a match (I tap them, but nothing happens).

It's the second part: it's OK to claim other routes than the orange routes (you'll need it to complete some tickets!), but you must also make sure that you also claim all orange routes on the board.

Yann I did that (claim all orange routes plus win) and still no achievement so there must be something else .

I got mine by picking two cross country routes that had quite a few orange sections. Claimed every orange section first, got lucky enough that I could still claim the two 20+ point routes together (I did use other color routes to finish), won by just a little bit and got the achievement.

The ghosts, I just kept switching around the main screens and it gave me the achievement after I hit the 5th one

Also since I didn't have fb set up I general settings, no way of posting ghost achievement to fb. Seems to be a one shot deal and if you don't have that set up, no way of posting to fb.... Sad

No you can share on FB easily, even after you won the achievement. Simply tap on the FB icon in the achievement screen, while having the achievement you want to share selected.

You must be missing one route you didn't see. Also are you make sure you grab the Orange routes in all the double routes: if you have a white/orange double route, you MUST take the Orange one. Taking the one white instead, while still part of the same double route, would not work/count.

If I could post the pic I have, it would show all the routes taken are orange (ie no black where orange is, etc.). And I've done this 3 times now without achievement. The first time, thought the achievement would show up after the game..nope. Then got the ghost achievement and did the orange again..nothing on orange achievement. Third time made sure I got / did all the orange with screenshot on my iPad. Still nada.

Here is that screenshot (I hope) :

Same problem here. I FINALLY got the game won with all the orange routes (after about 30 games) and no achievement. This is REALLY annoying now.

DoW should just give the jack-o-lantern avatar for free since it's clearly a bug on their part. Sad

How is this even possible? The game stats say that there are 12 cards of each color and 14 locomotive cards, for a total of 26, but there are 27 orange spaces on the game board. So even if you could get all the orange cards AND all the locomotive cards there aren't enough to claim all the orange routes.

I see people claiming to have completed this, but I am clearly confused by something.

Once a card is used it's shuffled back into the draw pile when that is exhausted. It's part of why this achievement is so difficult and why it's so frustrating not to get credit when you finally manage.

I too have both achievements but no way to post them to FB. No FB icon for me on the achievements page.

It should be a little blue tab on the upper-right side of your screen with the letter "f" in it. Above it is the little bird for Twitter. You'll click on the achievement you want to share and then hit the appropriate tab to share what you've earned.

On mine, it's available no matter how I get in to the Achievements page. Confused I'm not sure why you wouldn't have it available...

Also make sure that you play Solo mode not Pass&Play one! I had the same problem and did not know what was wrong until I realized that I was playing the wrong mode.

Seems we are in the same boat, krelios. Have done the game solo numerous times now with AI bot and still nothing even with getting all the orange lines.

But then also I'm missing other achievements as well on the USA map as well so wonder if they might be related.

Hopefully DoW will give some word on when they might fix this but I doubt it....sigh

Now I know your problem! You played the 1910 variant! The achievment is only given when you play on the classic USA map. Try it now Smile

I will give that a try--it would be nice if the achievement actually said that was a requirement. Sad

It's very clearly in the Standard TTR section of the achievements, so it kind of does say which version to play. Smile

True, but still I have played the game to death with the orange routes using standard tickets and still nothing. Just real annoyed that I was deprived of maybe GETTING a prize due to an obvious bug (and even there was a period of time when that email address of halloween@dow (yes I know the right one...but don't want spam bots to pick up the address and send them emails!!) wasn't working and sent the reply to Yann. All games with 1 AI bot on USA map - no variants. Obviously redid the game when bot took an orange route....have done it at least 40 times or more, still nada achievement...

And there are other achievements I know I have gotten on the USA and Asia maps that haven't been "achieved" but know I have gotten them, namely in the ticket dept for sure.....

I too have completed Pumpkin Master at least 5 times and still have yet to get the achievement for it. I'm playing on the original USA map against the Marg Loughbot A.I. I even registered here thinking my game had to linked and still nothing. It's frustrating not knowing what I am doing wrong and why I can't get the achievement.

1.Take the ticket from the witch's hand.
2. a) Choose the standard USA map ( not the 1910 one).
b) IMPORTANT!!! Choose Solo from "Solo // Local // Online // Pass&Play

I am writing this because it was my problem. I was playing against bots in Pass&Play mode which was chosen automatically. I did not pay attention to the choice of modes and thus could get no achievment.

3. Claim all orange routes on the map. Make sure that particularly orange routes are claimed in case of double routes (orange/black, orange/yellow).
4. Have the game won by you.

If you have done all this and still got no achievment, then it is a bug and you should report it to Days of Wonder.
