    You need to complete a game of each game type. Fortunately, this is as easy as starting a game, right clicking, and then selecting "new deal" from the bottom. Then switch game types and repeat. As soon as you confirm the last "new deal," the achievement will pop.

    Edit: You have to make one move (to start the game) in order to make it work. (Thanks, MichapX! I don't remember having to do this, but it might help and won't take any extra time.)

    MaRt DuDzThis is what Xbox said to me:

    Ambassador:
    Hey buddy!

    Me:
    Hey i am having trouble unlocking the Jack of All Trades achievement in Microsoft Solitaire Collection (Win 8). i have played one of each and won and still nothing any idea why?

    Ambassador:
    By definition to unlock the Jack of All Trades achievement, you need to beat each twice.

    Me:
    I have done it more than twice

    Ambassador:
    Each one?

    Me:
    Yes

    Ambassador:
    You've played Klondike, FreeCell, Spider, TriPeaks, and the Pyrimid?

    Ambassador:
    Pyramid*

    Me:
    Yes everyone and won on them more than twice, I have seen on a few forum's im not the only one either

    Ambassador:
    Yup, as I was just going to mention, in my system it's showing up as a reclusive problem. Suggestions that worked for others include but is limited to; Restarting PC, Clearing cache, reinstalling the collection and doing the levels over again.

    Me:
    Ok i will give them a go then, thanks for the sugestions

    You have to play and complete a game in every game mode. It is really quite simple. As mentioned above you can keep hitting "new deal" until you hit the last "new deal." This is really easy, also you do not have to win to unlock this achievement. You also have to make at least one move! If you do not move the achievement will not pop!

    StarlinXSame here, it doesn't even count when you look at the stats. For instance, I played 3 spider matches all the way through and after that my records still say 0 games of spider played.

    AllStarTC29sMomYeah, I have played about 25 Free Cell games and it still shows only 1 in my stats. I know I have played at least 20 of all the other ones too. But no achievement.

    THE Mr FillI know it's a bit after the last posts, but I had to complete a full game of Pyramid before it would count as "completed" and pop the cheevie - it stored that I had played the other games, but Pyramid was the stand-out
