    You must clear the board after putting all the cards onto the board (by clicking all 5 of the card stacks in the bottom right of the screen) BEFORE making your first move.

    This achievement is frustrating because it is half luck and half skill. You just have to get lucky with the way the cards are drawn but also be able to see cards in the back and try to work towards certain cards.

    My biggest recommendations are patience and undo. It is not possible to unlock this in every game. Many games just have an unlucky draw of the cards and will result in a loss. Keep trying until you get it.

    USE THE UNDO BUTTON. I unlocked this achievement after the game said there were no more moves but I undid several moves until I could take a different "path" and ended up clearing the board. There will be times when you could use 2 different cards in one spot. Try using one and then undoing and using the other to see if the card underneath one is better than the one underneath the other.

    Keep trying! I probably played about 50-60 games going for this achievement alone. This could take you 10 minutes or 10 hours. Just hope you get lucky.

    Gilbert PrimeGot it on my fourth attempt. It seemed daunting but given that its TA Ratio is only 2.67 (23,240 TA members have it) I knew it couldn't be that hard and it wasn't.

    The game has been updated. Before a few new changes were made, searching for a deck gave you a completely random one, except for the fact that you could choose the number of suits and a couple other things. Now you also have another option that allows you to select a deck that's guaranteed to be solvable. You can also select a difficulty for the deck. This greatly increases the effectiveness of searching for a deck, as described by other guides. Select a solvable 1 suit Spider Solitaire game set to the Easy difficulty. When the game starts you have to click on the extra card stacks to spread every one of them on your game cards. Now you should solve the deck. You can use hints to help you, but don't rely completely on them as they just show possible moves. There is some luck to this. A deck may or may not still be solvable after drawing all of the extra cards. Whether or not you solve a deck with all extra cards drawn depends on what moves you make and what kind of deck you have. It may take a few tries.
