    Pretty much as the description says, remove 14 cards in a row from the board, small tip though, take up any joker/wildcard cards you get offered via watching an advert, it would seem playing one during a streak does not count against you in the process, I managed to get a 15 card streak while playing a joker in the middle of it.

    Edit: Some further good advice in the comments, be sure to have a read through
    Edit2: Some people are reporting no longer being able to get free wildcards (platform specific?)
    Edit3: By the sounds of it you can only get a wild card on premium now playing endless
    Edit4: OK, just sounds like wildcards drop less often outside of premium now.

    My longest chain is 18 and the achievement did not unlock. Is there something that I am missing?
    Have you tried this:
    So just a little warning/tip, I just did this several times without getting the achievement then went on to play a spider game since I was one game away from the 10 played achievement which didn't pop either following 3mins of terror & a restart both achievement popped during the start screen so if you have any achievements issues they seem to pop after a restart
    I'm afraid that's the best I got but if other achievements have popped after, I'd say the problem is that for whatever reason, the game thinks the requirements haven't been met ... Good Luck wave

    Maxiimum ChaosFor those struggling or the achievement not unlocking, try clearing your caches, or uninstalling the game and reinstalling the game. That is what I did but I had to get a streak of 20 for some reason for it to pop but it did pop finally!

    ALoneWolf42I can't get this one either. I seem to have very bad luck at getting a good run going.

    Off the board means you have to remove a card from the bottom off one of those 3 pyramids.
    The stock is the actually the stacked and turned / face down pile underneath.
    That means you have to use the first card that is face up next to the stock, to remove 14 cards in a row from those 3 pyramids. To remove a card, the face up card has to be one above or below the one you want to remove from the board.

    For example:

    Ace = 2 and King
    King = Ace and Queen
    Queen = King and Jack
    Jack = Queen and 10

    2 = Ace and 3
    3 = 2 and 4

    and so on.

    Here is how you do it:

    Just play the normal game, if you need a Joker, click into the stock once, until the first card changes, then press new game. Repeat this step 2 - 5 time until you have to watch the advert / video, watch it till the end and you will earn the needed Joker / Wildcard.

    If you have it, just try to build the streak. It seems like the Joker does count for the streak of 14. If you are not able to build the streak at all, there is a way to increase your chance without losing the Joker, that's what would happen, if you would just go for a new game.

    To not lose it, just click trough the entire stock and a symbol is going to appear, it shows some cards and the number 2, that is actually the number of times you are able to deal new cards, without starting an entirely new game. Click it and new cards will be dealt. The whole board gets a reset and you have another chance without loosing your Joker / Wildcard. If you are not able to string it together, you got one more chance to click through the whole stock, click the symbol and the board will be reset. You managed to do it right, if you still got your Joker next to the stockpile and the text at the bottom says: 0 deals left. That is your last chance. After that you have to repeat the whole progress to get another Joker. While playing you can go for undo as many times you want. Use it!

    With all those tips you should be able to get the achievement in the fastest possible way.

    EarthboundXHaha, was just trying to do this, not 100% understanding how, but the Windows 10 version gives you a free week on Premium, so I got the Joker, then I was just kinda randomly checking out how it all worked, and after a few minutes of undos, it just kinda randomly popped, I don't feel like I got up to 14.

    The other guides explain pretty well how this all works. I just wanted to add that if you happen to spend the $2 for premium in your quest to do the other achievements, I have found a Daily Challenge for an Expert Tripeaks game on September 23, 2019 that allows you to get this achievement very early on in the game. Follow the video below to get a 15 card streak!

    PaladinX87This did not trigger for me when I tried it, but when I played a regular game on easy I got this.
