    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.

    ibrunosilvaWhen choosing #10913 on the time played was not counted, so I opened a new one and finished in 2:54

    Klondike: 2:02
    Spider: 3:15
    FreeCell: 2:54
    Total: 8:11

    Adding to the others solutions, if you are having trouble with Free Cell or just need less then 1:30 minute, you can hit New Game until the seed number is below 1 million and look for the solution (pausing and playing with the New Game tip from Nekro Neko).

    Solution at:

    Just input your seed and watch in side by side.

    Hope it helps!

    EarthboundXNo longer works. Once you select new game, you can't back out.

    For this achievement, any for the ones to win 10 or 100 games, you cannot play a daily challenge, collection game or pick a specific game number. You have to simply click the type of game you want to play and play a random game. You'll eventually get a game where you beat Spider in around 5-6 minutes. Playing Klondike with one card draws can get you a win in under two minutes easily. The hardest one in my opinion is Free Cell. You'll have to get a win in about 2 to 2 and a half minutes. If you play Free Cell enough it will become rather easy.

    Again playing a daily challenge, collection game or specific game number will not count towards this achievement. This achievement is not at all bugged.

    Vandel BusterIf people suck at Freecell, like me, use this:

    Then hit New Game to pause the timer to look at each move. Got a time of 1:32 first time I used it.
