    *Apparently glitchy*
    Didn't pop for me in star club or daily challenge mode when it should have, got it in standard mode first try. My friend popped it without ever playing in the standard mode, got it doing challenges. Some say in the comments that it didn't pop for them either way. Need more feedback to be sure, but apparently resetting stats will allow you to get it if you're having trouble. Just make sure you get other stat related achievements before doing so.

    Here's a guide with some helpful hints towards getting this achievement.

    You will need to do this once on each game mode, and the king needs to be the last one laid out on the board. It cannot be in the deck at the bottom of the screen.

    *In the pyramid game mode you can constantly choose a new game until you see a king at the top of the board. --->It has been commented that all the cards, even the ones on the bottom pile, need to be gone before the king is removed. <---

    *In standard game mode tri-peaks you can use the joker (which can be obtained by watching an advertisement) with the king to make this easier.

    mr xenonI ended up having to:
    1) Delete Solitaire off my Windows Phone. (Not sure if the cloud saves mess with achievement)
    2) Reset my stats in the Windows 8 version.
    3) Uninstall the Windows 8 version.
    4) Reinstall the Windows 8 version.
    5) Play out each game all the way thru until you get the king as the last card and continue to finish the game. Don't start a new game if you don't have a King right away. I'm not sure if it matters but I tried that many times before and it didn't end up popping the achievement. I just played every game all the way thru. You can expedite it by just running thru the burn deck if you want too.
    6) After the second game type (getting the king and finishing the game) the achievement popped.

    TardiiThis wouldn't pop for me until I reset my stats. It worked perfectly after the reset.

    MtldI've been messing around with this achievement and I think it might be that you can't "Undo" a move during your turn.
    1) I had a pyramid game that started with a King, so I completed it but undid some of my moves to get it. It didn't unlock.
    2) In the same game, I had another king on top, so I completed it, but this time I did not use an Undo. The achievement unlocked in-game.
    3) I had reset my game and played a king on tri-peaks before doing this.

    Prissyits because on the Pyramid King needs to be the last one to go Including the pile of cards at the bottom, make sure to get rid of all of them. everything else is good, thanks for the solution ??

    CurtiesonJust popped for me today, was in Daily Challenges on a Surface RT, the challenge was "Get XYZ points". I had played WP to completion but just started the Win8 version. The board I completed didn't even have a King at the peak, but I did clear the whole entire board (and the cards at the bottom). Lucky I guess...

    Rosshkmy experience:
    beat Tripeaks King as last card with a Joker, still had cards left.
    beat Pyramid King as last card without a Joker, nothing; still had cards left. Got to watch a video for a Joker & did so. Beat the next game without a Joker, nothing. Next game, right after the cards were laid out, it popped.
    Note: I haven't updated my game in months. Last time was probably August sometime.

    thatNoseyParkerCan anyone help with forcing the joker ad to 'spawn'??

    edit: just noticed this is in win8, should probably go to win10

    KaibaChaosOk, didn't get it the first time using Pyramid as the second game where I used Undo, tried it *without* undo and got it without resetting stats or any of the other things mentioned here. Can't remember whether I used undo in Tri-Peaks as I did it a few days ago but it might just be undo that's the problem.
