    So far, mine is "Wanna Be the King of the Zulus", for winning the game as Shaka (1.7% achievement rate).

    Conversely, what's the commonest achievement that you still haven't earned? So far, mine is "Lux Perpetua Luceat Eis" i.e. fully exploring the 'Piety' policy track (26.3% achievement rate).

    Don't got:
    Kamikaze Attack
    Kill an enemy unit attacking with a Japanese unit with just 1 HP remaining. - 15.9%

    Got:

    0.6%
    Time to Stitch a Tapestry
    Win as Normandy (any difficulty)

    lol basically if you play any of the scenarios you get really "rare ones".

    Otherwise:

    0.7%
    Pyramid Scheme
    Playing as France, get the Louvre to the maximum theming bonus of 16.

    Which is one you can always get I guess. Not the hardest. There's way too many

    Win New World Scenario as the Iroquois. It seems many people don't play scenarios.

    I'll also list my rarest non-scenario achievement.

    Wanna Be the King of the Zulus (win as Shaka).

    Most common one I don't have is Expansionist (download a mod). I hear mods are great for this game, but I never bothered. Problem is I can't get achievements while running a mod, right?

    Ugh, the damn nukes. It's the one "achievement" I'd gladly give back.

    Used my first nuke in my very first civ5 game - done mostly out of morbid curiosity. It didn't accomplish anything except muck up my penalties. The other time I've used one in a game was done as a desperation move - it still didn't accomplish anything. IMO you should build a couple of nukes for deterrent value only.

    It's a philosophical question:
    Is it really "winning" when you're the first to reach a victory condition but haven't launched at least 5 nukes on other Civilizations before doing so?

    @topic:
    Having played more than 1000 hours and only having unlocked 2 Achievements is my biggest achievement.

    Of course I cheated to get to that state. Before I threw everything into the memoryhole it was probably winning the Civil War Scenario on Deity. Pretty rare with 0.3% of all players, although not too difficult.

    If you want this one, you need to "uninstall" G&K and BNW so the units have much fewer hit points. Otherwise it very very rare that you'll get a unit down to 1 hp.

    I'm struggling to get Pax Romana Aeternum now, my first attempt lost on points.

    This was their Finest Hour
    Win as Anglo-Saxon England (any difficulty) .06%

    I think it would happen if you take a late-game city with a scout or warrior.
    If the city has 0 hp but your guy is full, then he'll take the city and just go down to 1 ( probably ).
    Who knows :p

    I stopped caring about achievements pretty fast,t here's too many and they make no sense.

    I have a bunch of .3% achievments, the hardest to get was probably this:
    Far-Shooting Apollo
    Win on Emperor in the Wonders of the Ancient World scenario.

    Most common achievment I don't have is purchasing 1,000 tiles. I should be USA more...

    My rarest achievement is now Sheridan's Valley Campaign (Civil War scenario) at 0.4%, just picked it up today. Not easy to win the scenario diverting all the way down to Lynchburg. Only 3 turns to go when I got Richmond.

    Rarest I have - A Magnificent Victory - win as Suleiman (3.4%).

    Most common I don't have - City of Gold (44.7%).

    I do have the nukes achievement, although it's rare that I use nukes in a Civ game. I don't recall every using a nuke in a regulation game in Civ3, and only one time in Civ4, in a game I subsequently abandoned in part due to a guilty conscience over using nukes when I could have won otherwise, just more slowly. Although I think I do recall the time I used nukes in Civ5. I'm pretty sure it involved Gandhi.

    Edit: Yup, it involved Gandhi. Okay, so I may have dropped five nukes on him in my quest to stop his impending cultural victory, but he nuked my allies in England, too! And he'd already pupputed a good chunk of the world through wars of aggression.

    My rarest is "Surviving Domesday"
    The most common achievement that I don't have yet is "Last Man Standing" because I don't play multiplayer. If we ignore that one, it's "Where's the Biathlon?"

    Last night I could have got "The Last Crusade" but I wasn't thinking. Going to see if I have a save from before I captured Babylon, and if so do I have any landships or cavalry left that have not been upgraded to tanks. (I think I captured the city with a tank)

    Edit: I had a save from near the beginning of the Siege of Babylon, and I did have one landship left, clear across the map, that hadn't been upgraded to a tank. So he drove for 6 or 7 turns while I bombarded the city, and arrived just in time to capture it and unlock the achievement.

    Just got "Pax Romana Aeternum". It was the last of the .3%'ers that I needed so I guess it's the rarest. I still need "God is Great" which at 1.7% I think is the most common one I don't have.

    Edit: oops, still need "Red Badge of Courage"
