In GrifballHub’s Good Games League, we have mini challenges called “Achieveables” that you can try to complete to make your Grifball experience even more fun. Each Achieveable is worth a certain number of GrifPoints. The total number of GrifPoints your team has won is called your GrifScore.
Achieveables are entirely voluntary. You can try to do all of them, or you can ignore them completely. It’s all up to you and your team. There is no punishment for not completing any Achieveables.
Like Xbox Live Achievements, you can only get each Achieveable once each season. Once it’s unlocked, your team will receive credit for that Achieveable.
What’s more, unlike Xbox Live Achievements, Achieveables are all team-based. Your team earns them together. There is no such thing as an individual Achieveable.
This season, we are offering 18 Achieveables for teams to pursue during their regular season games:
GrifPoints Achieveable 20 Brains over Brawn

70 Chuck the Sword

150 Xbox Record That!

You can get any of the Achieveables during any of your regular season games. Achieveables must be submitted by the team captain for the team to earn credit.
One other Achieveable requires you to create an account at Twitch.TV, set it up with your Xbox One, and stream a game. Check out this detailed tutorial on how to do that.
Once you have streamed your game, find the recording of your stream on your Twitch channel and submit that link for the Achieveable.
The other Achieveables that you can do off the court are simple: For every highlight (up to five) that your team submits to the GGL highlight reels, you will earn 40 GrifPoints for a Hollywood Achieveable! If you submit five highlights from league games during the season, you will unlock the Xbox Record That Achieveable, good for 150 more GrifPoints!
To record your highlight, simply use your Kinect (“Xbox, Record That!”) or double-tap the guide button and hit X to record a 30 second clip. Then, go to XboxDVR.com to retrieve the clip. Players are also to use XboxDVR.com for recording Achieveables that require filmed proof (such as Pro Run).
At the end of the season, the teams with the highest GrifScore will make the playoffs, regardless of their record. So you can go 0-10 and still make the post-season! One team even once went 0-24 and still made the playoffs!
But like we mentioned above, there is no punishment for not doing Achieveables. The top playoff seeds will still be reserved for teams with great Win/Loss records.
Have fun going after the Achieveables! Good luck!
