    While using the Lucky 7 powerup will be an immense help in achieving this (it gives you the perfect shape to make a line 7 times in a row), I can imagine that you might be reluctant to either pay for said powerup, or wait until it is made available as "powerup of the week".

    If you are in this boat, don't worry, you can do it the old-fashioned way. It might take a few tries, but here's what you do:

    As early as you can, stack pieces neatly, but leaving 2 columns clear, as if you are building for tetrises (4 lines at once) but instead of leaving one column clear, leave two. At some point, put a useful piece (I suggest an S, Z or T) into the "hold" slot. When you have almost reached the top of the screen, start putting pieces into the empty space, creating lines one by one. Don't just dump them in, always check that they will create a line each time. If you get an I (or another piece which just won't make a line) swap it for your emergency hold piece.

    Obviously, you will likely trigger Frenzy mode at some point and the board will start to cascade before your ten moves are done. This can often leave you in an unplayable position. Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do about that. Using the magnet powerup might reduce the chances that it will result in an unplayable board, so you could try that. As long as each piece you drop makes a line, ten times in a row, this will pop.

    Like I say, it might take a few tries. Having got to 8 or 9 a few times, on my 9th or 10th go I finally got it. Good luck!

    MaikdorfXhello friend ...
    I have managed to get eight or nine lines and I think once did 10, but the achievement does not jump possibly did something wrong, but I followed your guide, I wonder if you can mount an image or make a design as should be the board for achieving ....
    Thanks for your help laugh

    I was able to get this when I used the Lucky 7 powerup. It gives you the right shape for 7 lines. You still have to get lucky with the layout and be able to get the other 3 drops. For the record, I also was using Avalanche and Magnet which helped to set up a favorable board.

    Hotdogmcgeeto clarify, none of the cascade lines counted in the frenzy. I had to drop 10 consecutive pieces that each cleared a line (or more).

    WardieshireJust got this, i was on 7 during a frenzy then got the final 3 during the last hurrah. Hotdogmcgee's tip with the hold spot made this much easier as i could get rid of those damn squares!

    GameTagwastakenFrenzy mode and having either a tetris piece or L-piece in the hold so I could go two lines deep helped me. Then I swapped it for the square when it showed up. I'm pretty sure last hurrah did count for me as well because I counted only 9 when it popped at the end of the game.
