Create vanity accomplishments
Inspired by Doug's "Who needs green cards anyway", http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/578522/who-needs-green-cards-anyway
Some ideas: Won with negative opponent, bought more than 10 green cards in a turn, won without ever buying money, played 20 actions in a turn
David Lu did a great job with this.

My two more interesting wins have been:
-win with no money card in hand. (Includes gutting your copper.)
-win by buying all 10 curses in one turn.
And along those lines, perhaps "Supermodel" for having Remodelled X cards in one game...
"Subjugation" ... win a 3-player game with more points than the other 2 players combined
"Domination"... win a 4-player game with more points than the other 3 players combined
"The Donald" -- Trashed 3+ Apprentices
Re Chris's transmute idea, maybe "Mad Scientist" for transmuting X cards in one game? (i.e. the accomplishment is for performing the transmute action X times)
or maybe lab accident should be for a dubious laboratory accomplishment ... played x labs, but didn't buy anything?
we played a 3 player in person game over the weekend with transmute. 2 of us laughed when the 3rd asked about transmute ... "it sucks"* ... "yeah i don't think i'll be buying any" ... well, my friend likes to learn for himself, so he bought one and soon was transmuting coppers to gain more transmutes ("see, it multiplies") ... he eventually figured it out when he played a cartographer and dejectedly declared "and discard 2 transmutes" ... so i was thinking maybe an accomplishment for gaining x transmutes ... lab accident? http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-OLvXphvHTWM/TWxPFHE8u8I/AAAAAAAAAFg/A5a-xHUjnJg/s400/lab%2Baccident.jpg chain
reaction? i dunno...
* yeah i realize there's a use for (nearly) everything, but this kingdom was not it
"Walk-off Home Run" -- when you come from behind on your last turn to both end and win the game.
Also, maybe "Moneyball" should be winning a game without ever buying a card costing $5 or more (base cost, can't use Highway/Bridge to get around it)
Second the idea of using Sideways for a Vineyards achievement!
And maybe something like Underboss/Mafia Don/Godfather for scoring 30/40/50 VP with Goons?
like the new additions. a vineyards award would be nice. how about "sideways" ... http://www.sideways-movie.com/sideways.jpg
Time Lord: played 10 (20?) Duration actions in one turn
DHARMA Initiative: set aside 8+ Islands
Arrested Development: Bought 3+ Develop cards without ever using them
Browncoat: Browser crashed, forcing resignation while ahead 20+ points
Fringe Division: Finished game with 5+ Potions and exactly 2 Bishops
Snow White: played 7 Wharves in one turn
O Canada!: Finish with exactly 10 Provinces and 3 Duchys (territories) [obviously only attainable in 3+ player games]
Platinum Blonde: At game's end, have only Platinum and Gold Treasures (and at least 1 of each)
TARDIS: Finish a game with a deck where the total of all "+X Card(s)" is higher than (or if that's too easy, then over double) the number of cards. Not sure if this is an easy one to program or not.
Moneyball: Won a game with no Gold/Platinum in your deck
Buy-More: Used 10 Buy-actions in one turn (or 15?)
Criminal Mastermind: Used Tactician to discard 10+ cards
Tour de France: Cycled through entire deck in 5 consecutive turns
How about multipiledriver (either for 2,3,4 piles each or just 3+ piles?). Diving through 1 pile is nasty but many is harder...
How about an achievement for Vineyard and Goons?
Also, it'd be cool to see exactly how many points were gotten for the Archon and Onslaught badges.
