    Complete every single daily challenge in a month. This does not have to be done on the correct days - you can do every challenge on the final day of the month if you want, since you can select previous days' challenges from the "View all [Month] Challenges" icon to the top right of today's 5 challenges. You can also change your system date and do a previous month's challenges (your achievement will be timestamped at the changed date). Along the way to this achievement, you'll also pick up a Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Diamond medal, helping towards the achievements for those.

    Challenges range from Easy to Expert, and there are 5 challenges each day (1 challenge for each of the 5 different games). So you're looking at around 150 challenges in total, give or take a day or two's worth.

    The difficulty in this achievement is essentially completing the Hard and Expert challenges. Thankfully, user Voranc religiously uploads the solutions to every difficult challenge on his channel here:

    https://www.youtube.com/user/Woranc/videos

    You can search YouTube for them too, which makes life a little easier:

    Unfortunately, he seems to delete the entire month's worth of uploads once the month is over... So February's are now deleted. As will March's once we get to April. Therefore, you'll need to at the very least complete all the difficult challenges for a month before he deletes the solutions. You'll then be free to go back and complete the easier challenges at your own pace (note: according to Maliicious in the comments you can only go back 2 months). Irritating, but all the hard solutions, if only for a limited time, is better than nothing.


    As Falcon says in the comments, some of the older solutions can be found on other channels, but they're not quite as comprehensive as Voranc unfortunately:

    jh51681This achievement is not unlocking today for me either. I had set the date ahead and left one challenge to do for today (I set it back to the correct date a few days ago), but I see the banner at the bottom stuck at "0 Challenge(s) Remaining for PERFECT!". Is the banner supposed to go away?

    Also, March 1 shows a red box with a ribbon and 0/5 complete, but when I click on it, it shows all 5 completed, and when I go back to the daily challenge calendar, the box turns green with the ribbon. The rest of March shows green boxes like normal.

    Any way to fix this? I tried reinstalling and redoing a few challenges, but it didn't seem to help.

    cooorpseI did everything jh51681 did. My challenges are the same, 0 left, red box on 01/03 but all completed. I don't know how to fix it and if anyone have any idea it would be nice to know.

    intheshallowMaybe set your calendar date back to March 1st. Complete those challenges again. If it doesn't pop, logout. Set your clock to maybe March 31st or April 1st and log back in. See if maybe that kicks it?

    I found a online Freecell solver, and it worked.

    https://fc-solve.shlomifish.org/js-fc-solve/text/

    You need to input the columns and the cards from left to right and from top to bottom. Choose the tab "solve any board" and write in "Input"

    For example, first column (left to right) has Ten of clubs as the top card, next Queen of hearts, Ace of spades and Two of diamonds.

    Second column has Six of hearts (top), Eight of hearts, Three of diamonds and Seven of clubs,

    You need to write like this;

    TC QH AS 2D
    6H 8H 3D 7C

    10 needs to be written as T.

    When you finish to write, press the Solve! button, and if everything goes right, in the output you'll see the same cards that you have in your game (if not, maybe you wrote one wrong), and you can press play to watch the movements or you can press the next one that show only 1 movement at a time.

    i haven't search for a solver of the other modes, but I'll update this guide when I find them
