    Default Merry Xmas Steam Achievement

    Just had an email about that Merry Xmas steam achievement - something about it being a game in its own right or something - you have to play the game either today, tomorrow or Boxing Day - no idea what it's gonna be but SI state in the email that they'll be posting cryptic clues from this afternoon onwards - intriguing!

    Anyone else get the email - any ideas what this is all about then - the bit that gets me is when they say it's a 'game in its right' - got me baffled!

    P.S. If there have already been threads about this can the mods just close this - couldn't see any on the board (although I didn't search that much tbf).

    I'm still waiting on the twitter updates for the first clue. But should be interesting trying to figure it out

    The obvious one would be to get to december 25th in game between 24th and 26th real life. They've had little things like this in the past like in a previous one if you reached April 1st in game on April 1st real life, you got a message from the board saying you get £500mil transfer budget increase or something. This turns out to be an april fools!

    I dont think it'll be that, but I am interested to know. Shame I wont be by my computer until 27th

    Apparently its not that easy IWWROCKS. Having just gone through the Christmas period in game today I've not unlocked it. Plus I've seen tweets from miles saying that its not just playing the game on christmas

    We're having a few tech issues with the #FM12Xmas achievement. If they aren't fixed by 8pm UK time, we'll run it as a competition instead.

    Thats miles' latest tweet

    OK - with huge thanks to the people of Steam & SI for getting it sorted, the achievement should be working in the next hour or so.

    You need to think Xmas, and do something Christmassy. But it’s something that’s there all year.

    Go to a player's profile and click on his tree?

    Give a player the present of a new contract?

    Resign?

    The Clues are being dripfed out, these are the two so far from http://twitter.com/SI_games

    One clue was:
    The Moomins are big fans of both Xmas and football #FM12Xmas

    You need to think Xmas, and do something Christmassy. But it’s something that’s there all year. #FM12Xmas

    That's irrelevant. I don't mind not getting the achievement, I just want to know HOW to get it as (now I've read this damned thread) it's irritating me to within an inch of my life

    Can someone PM me an idea as well please - I've got no clue here - just tried a couple of things for what I thought it could be but I'm nowhere near I think. Even roped the missus in and she's stumped. Maybe trying too hard.

    Please someone put me out of my misery (by the PM of course) otherwise it will do my head in! SI...you've beaten me!

    Think I know what it is - have tried to get it activated if I'm on the right track - but I keep gettinga 'knock-back' - it's why I'm at a loss - any help much appreciated now!

    A friendly PM might tell you the answer but really it isn't in how you finnish, it's how you get there.
