    If you've already done this on WP8, play one game of Solitaire and this will pop.

    Microsoft Solitaire Collection (WP)King of the HillThe King of the Hill achievement in Microsoft Solitaire Collection (WP) worth 11 pointsWin 100 Solitaire games.

    This is for completing 100 of one of those games, not cumulative. 100 games of Klondike counts, 40/30/30 doesn't. Also, daily challenges do not count as games. Thanks ShadyShall for the clarification.

    In terms of consistently fast games, I would rate Klondike on Deal 1 as the fastest, followed by Freecell and Spider on One Suit being equally slow. Spider on One Suit can be done quickly, but this is the consistently longest game, so unless you've been playing Spider for a while, it's not a good option. Similarly, Freecell can be confusing, and games can last anywhere from 3-8 minutes.

    Previously the fastest way to do this was Freecell, but with an update, choosing a specific deal no longer works. I've left the old solution intact in the spoiler tag below in case anyone's interested.

    x1001x PuppysTo find the file, open your file folder and click on "My PC." Then, in the search box, type "klondike.bin.ark" - The search may take a while if you have a ton of files, but eventually it will show up. Right click "klondike.bin.ark" and "Open File Location." Congrats! You can now do Sioul's method. Thank you so much for that Sioul, I never thought I would have 25 wins in 60 games of single card Solitaire. WTF is with the algorithm in Win8? More than half these games are unwinnable; this was no where near as difficult in Win 10.

    If you have a Windows Phone you can quickly get a lot of wins.

    1) Get close to completing a game on the first device and then exit to the menu.
    2) Then load up the cloud save on the second device and beat the game.
    3) Then on the first device go back to the game, pick "Local" over the cloud save, and then exit to the menu again.
    4) Repeat.

    Nuckinndid this get patched? It seems that it is taking my cloud save from W10 not W8

    PinskiI'm not sure if it got patched or not. I think Win10 is the "default" over Win8 at this point for cloud saves. Can't you do the same thing with Win8 and Win10?
    1) Get close to beating a game on Win10.
    2) Loading up the cloud save on Win8.
    3) Beating on Win8.
    4) Go back to Win10 and pick "Local".
    5) Repeat.
