    This achievement appears to be bugged in the Windows 10 version at the moment. From what I can guess, it seems that the game will register a cleared board for each time you press the 'New Game' button prior to actually clearing a board the normal way. So I believe you should be able to do the following to get the achievement:

    1. Start a new game.
    2. Press the 'New Game' button 99 times.
    3. Proceed with your game, clearing at least one board normally
    4. Get Achievement

    It doesn't update the statistics screen, only the tally for the achievements.

    This trick applies to both Pyramid and Tripeaks.

    Thanks to BB rocker for discovering this only works for the Windows 10 version.

    EproximaMy experience is that you DONT earn any of the "clear 10 or 100 / win 10 or 100" achievements in the Star-Club Challenges, The Daily Challenges, and the timed live events (ranked).
    Since theres so many ways to win in the mentioned modes (like clear x amount of this card, get 3 stacks of that, play this card to the foundation.. You get the challenge credit but it seems like a challenge isent the same as a full single unchallenged clear.
    -I had to play the full normal online/offline colored icons on the top of the screen. If you choose easy on the difficulty it should go fast enough.

    The object of TriPeaks is to clear the board by removing cards in order. The order is:
    King, Queen, Jack, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, Ace

    The order repeats, so you can go from Queen, to King, to Ace, then back to King. As long as you pick a card immediately in front of or behind the card in the draw pile. Clear the board 100 times to unlock this achievement. You can clear the board multiple times in 1 game.
