Not a solution. I'm afraid this appears to be bugged for me and at least 2 other friends.

The problem for us 3 is free cell in both the end game screen and in statistics it is not registering wins or best times.

I managed freecell in :49 seconds , klondike in 2:54 and spider in 6:04 - total 9:47

I'm just posting this to try and narrow down what went wrong or see if there is a possible fix for it. So far all I've determined is none of us have played this before on W8 or WP so no existing data and form the stats on here it's clear it's unlocking for people , so perhaps they have played it on those platforms for it to unlock ?

EDIT/UPDATE Something changed on my game today , I lost my best times in Klondike and Spider and they reverted to much slower times and Freecell now seems to be tracking times and wins, so I will try and get my times under 10 now and see if they achievement pops

Must have been something done server side.

Can confirm it's working for me now. I'll leave this up a day for 2 for info and then delete.

Update 2 Was just checking my stats and playing a few more games of freecell to get the 10 and 100 wins, I noticed it is once again not counting the stats / times . Show's I played only 2 games won 1, even though the tracker for the wins achievements is working the game now shows my best free cell time as 1:34 , it was 47 seconds last night. Fortunately I have the achievement when it just started working yesterday.

SO this just seems to be down to pure luck as to whether the stats register on a given day. My advice would be be for the moment would be to check each day by playing the #10913 game , you can find the solution in the other freecell guides , takes about 40-50 seconds to win.

Update 3 Expertiize has mentioned in the comments that if you manually set a game number it displays a message saying the game will not count towards stats. I've checked this and it does indeed show this message now where as it didn't when I used it up to this point.

I think maybe this might be the problem and that this message was broken and wasn't being shown up to now.

Just picked off this achievement after trying so long on Spider to get the time down below 5 minutes with no luck. However this game has a massive exploit when playing timed games. When you are playing and have made your first move, when you go to start a new game the timer pauses but the board still shows all the cards. This is especially useful to plan your next move/chain of moves. With this I managed to get down to 4:15 which was enough on top of the other two games to get the achievement.

Now that I know that, I could have used this exploit for both Freecell and Klondike so maybe it'll be of use to some of you out there.

Also, do note that playing a game with a custom seed number will not count toward the statistics and thus, no matter how fast you do that, it won't go toward the classic speed run achievement.
