I am trying my hardest to accomplish all the achievements in AC3 but the one to win a Fanorona, Morris and Bowls in the Homestead is absolutely driving me to distraction! Please can someone help me as I've done Morris (tricky but achievable), Bowls (relatively easy) but this f*****g Fanorona is driving me insane, as soon as I think I've made a good move, 3 or 4 consecutive moves, my opponent returns with 6 or 7 moves and wipes me out!!!!
I've looked online for help, played around with various Java-based versions online but for the life of me I cannot beat the priest (that's the only person who plays me after I've finished the main campaign) and if he sniggers or patronises me once more I swear I'll need to get a new screen as I'm about to put my fist through my current one!
Please can some give me some advice, help, tips, anything that will prevent me going mad, I'm currently on my third playthrough (which I have to say is getting more enjoyable as I'm looking around and trying lots of different strategies this time rather than trying to complete the campaign as quick as possible) but as I'm now stuck on getting this final achievement (completionist or anally retentive I'll let you decide) on my first completed play, it's doing my head in!
Pwizard, Calibre, CH guys, anyone, please help, make an instant win or something for these games (that registers the win!) so I can sleep at night......
Or maybe I should just stop for a while and go back to Far Cry 3 or X-Com, or even go back to work after the holiday period.....

You can actually download small apps of those titles, and play against the computer.

So you let the computer go first in AC3, and you copy the move in the app, but you then do the computers move in the app to yours in the game.

You will win 100% this way, just make sure to the set the computers skill level on the app as highest.

Oh believe me DABHand, I've tried them, seen YT videos, basically I think I'm cr*p at the game, Morris and Bowls no problem (must be my age!!!) but this Fanorona I just cannot do! It's the only achievement I've not managed (got worried about the "Spit Roast" one but managed that one eventually, despite my initial thoughts on what was needed!!!) but I'm going to persevere...have to for sanity's sake

Fanorona you have to make them come to you, but you also have to sacrifice one or two pieces to set them up.

But as said, if you follow what I said, you can win all day long.

Let AC3 go first,
goto APP put in that move,
APP COMP plays,
You make the same moves in AC3. And so on.

You will win guaranteed.

sorry for reviving this thread, but do you have some recommendations for which apps to use (fanorama and morris)?

Just curious if the strategy that dab recommended worked for you Blade or did you beat it by yourself in the end?

Also curious because I don't understand that mini game at all.

Fanorona isn't that hard a game.

Basically you move your piece if it moves towards or away from your opponents pieces then you can take those piece/s out along the line you traveled.

For instance the first move is always UP for white when they start, so when you move up all the opponents pieces UP from that piece is taken.

Later on with more space you can chain moves, move take pieces, move in another direction take more pieces, etc.

Its like chess+chequers you really have to think ahead and force your opponent to make mistakes.
