I was hoping I'd be able to get that 66,666 points number but I won't be able to this time around.

I just noticed there's a new 2000 point punchcard in the Xbox app. When you do task 4 you can just claim the points and skip the donation if you want to. You also need to get 3 achievements, do 5 days of Bing searches, a quiz for 50 points and 3 daily sets. I just now claimed the 500 points and will start working on the achievements next.

I just started up Roombo and killed a burglar by using the coffee machine and a knife and nabbed 3 achievements to satisfy the weekly 100 point challenge and satisfy the new 2,000 point challenge, and get the 50 points for an achievement so I'm glad I waited  :thumbup:

I did everything for the 2,000 except now I just need to do 2 more daily sets and 4 more days of bing searches to get the full 2,000.

I also got an achievement in Donut County and got the weekly 10 point achievement for a game pass game.

Here's where I'm at now


Don't forget to start the "Protecting the planet" punch card for 150 points on your Rewards website homepage.

I wasn't expecting a new punchcard so I did the 3 weekly achievements on Tuesday. I had to "waste" a few on the new punchcard which I did by playing Killer Instinct. I had some random achievement pop by just launching the game(something for a costume) and then fighting with a character. I got my 50 points for the daily but now I'm waiting for tomorrow to do the last achievement for an extra 50 points. I forgot that Killer Instinct is part of Game Pass(I own it) so I again wasted 2 achievements I could have used for that weekly quest. I really need to find a few games I can do that aren't on GP that have low numbered achievement points(so I can save those 100 point achievements for those 10,000 challenges) because I'm just causing myself more grief over the long run when I'm using GP achievements for something else and will run out soon enough.

I did the third achievement for the punchcard and also the 50 for the achievement so now I just need one more daily and 3 Bing search days to finish for the 2000. I also need two more days on the 150 point task on the homepage.

I'm going to use the game Grip for an achievement here and there as there are some that will be a bit grindy like complete 25 races, 50 races, etc. I can mess around with the single player settings a bit to make things go a bit quicker the way I did today by getting the complete a race achievement. I just made it a 2 lap race and maybe 2-3 minutes later it was done and the achievement popped. 25 races like that should go quick enough. I won't be able to use those as a daily though because it would take hours every day. I didn't think about it at the time but I'll have to see if I can make it 1 lap which would be even quicker. As far as opponents I could only go as low as 2 and nothing less.

I just nabbed an achievement in Roombo for the daily 50 points by attacking 2 robbers at once but I didn't quit the game and finished the round and accidently popped another achievement for getting 90% accuracy with my traps. :(

I hate that. The same thing happens to me and it drives me nuts. See? Rewards is ruining gaming because now we don't just play for fun any more we play for points.

I'm about to try the Halo GP quest for the 50 points I'm hoping since it's early all the hardcore players will be in bed.

For a super easy few weeks of "get an achievement in GP" quests download the games Rain on your Parade and Touhou: Luna Nights. They give you an achievement for just launching the game. They're both less than 1GB in size.

If you don't have Star Wars Jedi installed you'll have to download 16GB before you can start it to get the daily 100 points. Also, if you haven't already done most of the achievements in State of Decay Year One don't do what I did and waste the achievement in that Rain game I mentioned a few posts up. I ended up getting 2 achievements in Decay within a few minutes when I wasn't expecting it and I just did the GP achievement less that 10 minutes before. :suicide2:
