NOTE: This method is very touchy. It worked great this afternoon. But this evening, I ran into problems from time to time with the syncing. For example, Steps 2 and 8 needed to be skipped sometimes, but I had to do them other times. So, this was frustrating, but I did finish 90 games of both Klondike and Spider in 5-6 hours total. If you have better luck than me, it could be 2.5 hours.

NOTE 2: While I did the initial guide, a lot of the details were tested/proven by Gamer0364. Big shout out for helping out! This is as much your guide now as it is mine. Thanks!


(Copy/paste of my Spider solution.) This boosting method works similar to the Win8/WP method. I am using WP10 and W10 devices. Thanks to Gamer0364 for confirming this works with 2 W10 devices.

Notes:
- For this guide, Device A refers to the machine you are completing games on. Device B is the one the keeps the game one move from being done.
- On Device A, if asked to use Cloud or Local storage, use Cloud. DEVICE A = CLOUD STORAGE.
- On Device B, if asked to use Cloud or Local storage, use Local. DEVICE B = LOCAL STORAGE.

This guide works on the games Klondike, Spider and FreeCell. (Thanks to Gamer0364 for confirming this works with Pyramid and TriPeaks as well. You can boost boards by using this method.) I boosted the Klondike and Spider games at the same time but was already done with FreeCell.

Setting things up:
1. On Device B (for me this was my WP10), start a Spider game and solve leaving 1 last move. Go back to the menu.
a. If needed, start a game of Klondike and solve it leaving 1 last move. Go back to the menu.
b. If needed, start a game of FreeCell and solve it leaving 1 last move. Go back to the menu. (Thanks to Gamer0364 for confirming this works for FreeCell as well.)
2. Now click on Awards and Achievements. Go back to the menu. (I had to do this to get my games to save to the cloud. It doesn't make sense to me, but this boosting didn't work without this step.)
3. Leave this app open.
4. Open the app on Device A, and make sure your profile loads before proceeding on.
- You may need to go to Awards and Achievements after opening the app to make sure your profile syncs. Sometimes I needed to, sometimes I didn't. I am doing this every time now just to be sure.
5. Start a Spider game (choose CLOUD STORAGE if asked) and finish the move. Choose HOME when the game is complete.
a. If needed, start a Klondike game (choose CLOUD STORAGE if asked) and finish the move. Choose HOME when the game is complete.
b. If needed, start a FreeCell game (choose CLOUD STORAGE if asked) and finish the move. Choose HOME when the game is complete. (Thanks to Gamer0364 for confirming this works for FreeCell as well.)
6. Close the App - I did this by clicking the X.

This is where the routine sets in. Again, I was doing Klondike and Spider. I could do 1 iteration in just over 1 minute. So, assuming a 1:30 per iteration, we're looking at 150 minutes, or 2 hours 30 minutes to get them all. But, please see my note at the top about how touchy this is.
7. Go back to Device B, open the Spider game. Make no moves. Thanks to Gamer0364 for pointing out that moving a card from one slot to another helps force the game to save to the cloud - makes the routine more dependable. Go back to the menu.

12. Close the App - I did this by clicking the X.
13. Go back to Step 1


If you get out of sync, do this:
1. Close the game on both devices
2. Open the app on Device A, and make sure your profile loads before proceeding on.
3. Now click on Awards and Achievements. Go back to the menu.
4. Close the App - I did this by clicking the X.
5. Now go back to the routine step 7. Make sure you choose LOCAL on Device B, and CLOUD on Device A!
