    *EDIT: There have been reports that this no longer works as of the most recent update. I am leaving the solution up in case it becomes viable again, but I would recommend against getting your hopes up. The steps outlined in the solution are fairly easy, so feel free to give it a try if you don't believe the reports I've received so far.

    This achievement is very easy if you have access to the Android or iOS versions of the game. If you can confirm this works on another platform or device please let me know, and I will gladly update this solution!

    All you need to do is win a game, and when you are on the "Congratulations!" screen (where you can choose "New game" or "Home") just exit by quitting the app. Re-open the game, wait for the login and sync to finish (the spinning icon in the top corner), then select Spider on the Menu. It will show the finished game, re-fire the fireworks, and take you to the "Congratulations!" screen again. Repeat until you have enough wins.

    This strategy works for most of the "complete games" achievements for Klondike, Spider, and Freecell (see the list below)!

    I went for this as of 19th March 2018. When picking the spider puzzle you now have the option of choosing an easy puzzle that is guaranteed to be solvable. I chose this and then kept selecting hint all of the way through. Its a grind but it got me the achievement!

    eNaRGeBloody crazy, I select "Play Solvable" and so far, of 5 games I've played, I've only won one! I'm using Hints for every move, it's pissing me off, I spend 10 minutes just to have to start over. Grrrrr. Thanks for the advice, I'll just keep trying I guess.

    The object of Spider is to put all of the cards in order so you can clear them. You must start with King and stack the cards all the way down to Ace. You can only stack cards on top of the card immediately preceding it. The order is: King, Queen, Jack, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, Ace.

    You have to clear the entire board to win the game. There are cards in the bottom right that will add cards to the bottom layer of every stack. You can use these when you are stuck or when you feel like you are ahead, but you will have to use them all eventually in order to win. Win the game 10 times by clearing the board to get this achievement.

    If you clear the board 100 times you will unlock this achievement -
