Hints

Easy "Enemy Blade No More" achievement

 PC  Play as Gajah Mada (Indonesia). Start in the Classical Era and research Iron Working to unlock the Kris Swordsman. This unit has a unique trait called the Mystic Blade. It is a red trait with a blue question mark. After your Kris Swordsman's first battle, he will get one of the following random promotions:

Invulnerability: +30% Combat Bonus when defending. +20 HP when healing
Sneak Attack: Flank attack bonus increased by 50%
Heroism: Unit awards combat bonus to nearby units as if it is a Great General
Ambition: +50% Combat Bonus when attacking. -20% penalty when defending
Restlessness: May attack twice, 1 extra movement
Recruitment: Heals all damage if the unit kills a non-Barbarian unit (only 50 HP)
Enemy Blade: Takes 20 damage if the unit ends its turn in enemy territory
Evil Spirits: -10% penalty when attacking. -30% penalty when defending
Your goal is to get the "Enemy Blade" promotion. Once obtained, capture an enemy capital. It is recommended that you do this against a City-State, whose only city is always a capital. Once the capital's health is completely gone, have your Kris swordsman go in and capture it.

Easy "Flip-Flop" achievement

 PC  Note: This can be done faster on a very small map and adding a few scouts to automatically explore to get to the conference quicker. After a civilization has met with a majority of the other civilizations, a conference will eventually be setup to deal with the world. Prior to each conference, leaders will be able to propose issues that will affect specific elements, such as banning luxury items or setting a world religion. Choose any resolution and when the conference occurs, focus all your delegates to approve your stance to enact that resolution. If it passes, complete ten more turns so you can submit another proposal. This time, select the same resolution that you passed earlier. Propose a repeal to that resolution and the achievement will be earned.

Easy "Greed is Good" achievement

 PC  Select an early era and the Settler difficulty setting. Research Horseback Riding for Caravansary and Compass to get Harbor. A coastal city is also required to build the Harbor and Colossus. For Petra, you must be on a desert tile or have a city built next to a desert. Thus, your coastal city must be next to a desert tile. Try using the Donut map type to have a better chance at this layout.

Easy "Holy Father" achievement

 PC  Make sure there are at least twelve City-States, and that the time era is before the Renaissance to keep Papal Primacy Belief present. Start out as normal, but begin by focusing on Faith. After enough Faith is accumulated, you will have an option to "Found a Pantheon". Do so and continue to accumulate Faith to generate a Great Prophet. Use the Prophet to found a religion. Continue to accumulate Faith for a second Prophet and enhance your faith. Then, select your Papal Primacy Belief that gives you influence boosts. Your alliance with twelve City-States does not have to be simultaneous. Simply ally with twelve different City-States over time. The easiest way to do this is to combine gifts with tasks that a city-state asks for. A gift of 1,000 gold will usually change a city-state from neutral to ally.

Easy "Know Thy Enemy" achievement

 PC  Generate two Great People by building the required Wonders or by running specialists in your cities. You can also complete the Liberty policy tree to get a Great Person. Position your Great Person so that it is adjacent to the city containing the Oracle.
fcpoto

Easy "Rock the Kasbah" achievement

 PC  Play against the Moroccan civilization and wait for them to build a Kasbah. Then, move a Great Musician on that tile and perform a concert tour. Note A concert tour can only be performed outside your own territory.  PC  Alternately, play the Moroccan civilization and create however many cities desired. Build a Kasbah in a city. Trade that city to the opposition. Generate a Great Musician, buy one with Faith, or build a World Wonder that produces any Great Person or specifically produces a Great Musician. Then, negotiate an Open Borders contract with the opposition that has the Kasbah to get your Great Musician into enemy territory.

Easy "Taekwon-DOH!" achievement

 PC  Start the "Samurai Invasion of Korea" scenario and play as Korea. Pause game play, then select "Retire".

Alternately, play as Korea under the hardest difficulty setting. Begin by declaring war on Manchuria and allow Japan to kill your units and do not attack them. The goal is to give Japan enough points to get ahead of China. Japan will eventually kill all your units and take all of your cities. You must then allow all 100 turns to be played, at which point you will earn the achievement if Japan has more points than China.

Easy "That's XCOM baby!" achievement

 PC  Play in the Information Era with the CPU set to a higher difficulty setting. Research Satellites and Nanotechnology. Satellites will allow you to see which civilization has the most troops built up. Select one, then move the XCOM Squad near the region. An area with two towns within striking distance (two ranged tiles) is recommended. The XCOM Squad can paradrop at a distance of 40 tiles and can easily start from full health and drop immediately into a serious situation. Repeat the process until the achievement is earned.

Easy "We are Family" achievement

 PC  Choose a standard-size map under the lowest difficulty setting. A "Pangaea" map is recommended to keep all the civilizations on the same land mass. Start by sending some units to begin exploring so you can find the other Capitals. To found a religion, build a shrine in at least one city to start generating Faith. Because 200 Faith is required to start a religion, it will be faster to have shrines in multiple cities. You must be the first to found a religion. By doing this, it will be easier to become the dominant religion in the other Capitals, and there will be no one to reverse your work. Once you have a religion, send any Great Prophets available to the other Capitals and have them spread your religion. You can use faith to purchase missionaries by going to a city screen. Note: Missionaries can enter enemy territory without consequences. If you are the dominant religion in another Civilization's Capital, their missionaries will spread your religion.
