    Choose game no: 270618 - 9 cards immediately go up to the top which makes it relatively easy to get rid of the remainder without getting more than 7 in any column.

    The Ninjew46I've done this maybe 10 times now following step by step without success. I'm not saying this is a bad guide, I'm just hoping that someone may know why this isn't working for me. I haven't accidentally messed up and had more than 7 cards in one column, and I haven't undone any moves in case that voided the achievement as well. Is this achievement bugged for me? What should I do?
