The achievements for Happy Wars 360 and X1 are different so you cannot enter with 5 X1 achievements only some overlap.

Since the achievements selected are different for the x1 and 360 version of happy wars... Can I enter using both versions?

Just a reminder, if a game in the contest is available on more than one format ie Happy Wars on both Xbox One or Xbox 360, then you are only allowed to use the achievements from one version to enter the contest. In no way does it mean you can use the Xbox One version for the Main contest and the Xbox 360 version for the Bonus (or Xbox 360 version for the Main contest and Xbox One version for the Bonus Contest). In short if you use the Xbox One version for one contest, you must have unlocked those achievements during the relvevant time period for the achievements to be used in the Bonus Contest.

If you have retrroactive achievements used from one version for the Main Contest and then unlock achievements from the other version during the month and want to use these newer achievements to enter the Bonus Contest, then you will need to edit the intial entry so that the same achievements from the same version of the game are used for entry into both the Main Contest and Bonus Contest.

If you have used achievements from 3 of the other games listed, then it wouldn't matter which version of Happy Wars you use for the Bonus Contest. What it comes down to is you can't use both versions of the one game for entry into both contests.

Perhaps this is a silly question then, but if you cannot use both console versions of a game, why (as in the case of Happy Wars) are two different sets of achievements used? Why not just use one set and say that only one version is acceptable, so that they/we cannot use both versions of the achievements?

good question, where the game is on both consoles, there is two lists of achievements so that the people that don't own the xbox one can't say that they are missing out.

With the introduction of 1 Xbox One exclusive game per month (given that the Xbox One has been out for nearly 2 years), from now on where a game is available on both consoles, the person choosing the game will be asked to choose which version they want the game to be from. that way if they want the game on both 360 and xbox one, then it will count for two separate games in the contest, thus saving the entrants from having to choose one version or the other.

Hi Oz, I have a question about one of this month's games, Diablo III. Diablo III Reaper of Souls version of the game shares 4 of the 5 achievements from the standard game, will you be accepting Reaper of Souls entries for this game?

Can we have people other than the winners picking the games required ? It is FAR too much of an advantage.

I believe there are a few people that have earned the right to pick games that haven't sent any or that there will be more people once we get more dog bones counted.
