This is a great idea in the achievement board but this is very difficult to guess what you have to do ...

I'm french and i cannot find the solution about " Revolutionary Frenchmen "

French visionnary may be Joan because she had visions.
French revolutionary is definitely Robespierre
but the french genius is ?

Einstein is german, Newton is english and same age than Robespierre.

If you guess this one or others i will definitely appreciate this.

I think the genius refers to the Eiffel Tower.

I've completed two others:

American: Democracy, Fast Food Chains, Age III Arena

India: Taj Mahal, Gandhi, Most points from Impact of Population event.

T'as Napoléon qui est français, mais du même âge que Robespierre

Peut être la Tour Eiffel pour le french genius par contre ? Pas sur que ce ne soit que des leaders non ?

You need to build a Printing Press to publish all of Alexandre Dumas' books.

Well either you need to keep your printing press till the end (not upgrade it) or you must not break the Library of Alexandria with Ravages of Time, because i did those things and didn't get the achievement (one thing missing). shake

I just got Russian Rails, Great Great Britain, and The name is Alexander in the same game.
Last game I got American Dream and Revolutionary Frenchmen. I would have gotten Impact of India as well but I didn't grab Gandhi when I should have.

I did this. Didn't get the achievement.
Do you have to use Robespierre's special ability?
(I even used Engineering Genius II, which has the Eiffel Tower in its art)

You have to use Robespierre to start a revolution. From memory, I got it doing it with Constitutional Monarchy, and I don't think it has to be Republic.

Do they have to end the game as Rifleman? I assume to as I had 3 at one point but upgraded them. Interesting enough I got the Asian Horde that game too.

Any more details on that? I had Joan, used Max for 2 revolutions (first for ConMon, then for Democracy), and built Eiffel (don't really remember if I used Eng. Genius for building though). Didn't get the achievement.

Thanks! Indeed using Eng. Genius to build Eiffel helped. Not sure though if it needs to be from Age II (I used both from Age I & II just to be sure).

When you got the achievement, did you end the game with age 2 riflemen or Modern infantry?

Does the wall need to be finished during the raid? I played successfully an age I raid with Genghis, but while I had Great Wall picked, I finished it later. I won the game but bo achievement for me.

Edit: Yes it needs to be finished. I got the achievement now.

IMO this is the hardest one to achieve. You may have to pick up Genghis and the wall sub optimally. Finishing the wall is never easy. You then have to get a Raid card and hope the bot does not improve its military to within a few of your own count.
I've tried numerous times and still not pulled it off!

At least you can retry fast. Strangely, I had difficultied to grab the British one, with the AI teking Churchill every f** time. When I finally grabbed it, I managed to make the US triplet in the same game.

Russian is not easy too, you have to grab 2 wonders within the same age. Pyramids & masonery are a big help.

Is there something more to the Russian achievement? I built the Railroad, Kremlin and Communism, then won the game but didn't get the credit. Is it like the French one where I should have used Engineering Genius (or should not have)? Or should I have revolted into Communism?
