    If you're going for powerups for Gatherer, you should get this while unlocking your second powerup of the week. At 180 games to fully unlock two powerups, you need to clear an average of 56 lines per game. Frenzy mode is a huge help here.

    For free powerups, I'm not sure if Lasers count as three line clears or not. Magnet is a good choice, as it pulls everything to the left, leaving it open for a straight block and helps with Tetrises for Tetris Ace. Quake is mostly solid, but the blocks that shake free aren't guaranteed to clear lines.

    For paid or unlocked powerups, Avalanche fills in areas at the top with a row of three single-block columns, meaning that they always drop into holes when available. Avalanche is almost made for this; going for line clears, it becomes much easier to get 100 per game. For best results, trigger Avalanche during Frenzy.

    Crusher drops a 5x5 block that sinks straight to the bottom. Note that Crusher blocks won't break up during Frenzy, so it can be a double-edged sword during large clears.

    DjDooksyIv just hit level 14 and no achievement... If this fail to unlock and I carried on and did the 100,000 do you think it would pop the one for having all xbox live achievements?

    SaltyTONHurricane Ham that's what happened to me with the drop 150 tetriminos in a game. Took about two days before it eventually popped...

    JaxMithSo, I'm midway through Level 16 and make an average of about 95-100 lines per game. I'm fairly certain this achievement should've unlocked already, yet still no sign of it.
    Is this achievement really that bugged?

    JmoCoxLevel 15 myself and it has not unlocked. I would say I average around 90 lines cleared a game.

    liiamiLevel 17 when it unlocked for me. Also the 10,000 line clears had to be 10,000 on my Windows Phone.
    I've been playing the Android version too, and while those clears added to my "all modes" total, they didn't add to the total clears for the achievement.

    FlexzthamanI have unlocked this and it popped on my phone, even when I look at my achievements it's there, but TA won't scan this achievement, that's the strange thing...

    MarioTooDoes the progress bar actually move for these? I'm 1/3 of the way through lvl 16, have well over 10,000, and no achievement, nor has the progress bar moved on it, or the 100,000 achievement.

    onlyonevinceLevel 18, got the achievement today at 13,000 lines, according to the achievements page where it keeps track of your lines cleared.

    SpazpolI just popped the achievement at 10,356 lines per the in game tracker. I do not use a ton of the finishers, but I think that is where the count gets thrown off. I think lines only count that are done in the normal time limit, so if you have been clearing a lot of additional lines with finishers, those are not counting towards the 10,000 lines. So save your coins.
