    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

    I found this by accident after having my tally for the achievement skyrocket after attempting to find a game with a King at the top of the pyramid for one of the other achievements. It doesn't update the statistics screen (I only have 27 cleared boards at this point), only the tally for the achievements.

    This trick works for both Pyramid and Tripeaks.

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

    Friggin Grease@NuttySandman123 This has also happened to me. The statistics say I've cleared ~130 boards, but the counter is stuck at 90/100

    The object of Pyramid is to match 2 cards that add up to 13. King is worth 13 (you can just click a King to clear it without matching it), Queen is 12, Jack is 11, and Ace is 1. Below is the list of pairs that will work. The suit does not matter, just the number. Clear the board 100 times for this achievement. You can clear the board multiple times in 1 game.

    King = 13
    Queen + Ace = 13
    Jack + 2 = 13
    10 + 3 = 13
    9 + 4 = 13
    8 + 5 = 13
    7 + 6 = 13

    Start up a game of Pyramids. Clear at least 1 board. When the new board loads up, back out and go to your awards and check the achievement progress. It should have gone up by 1. Back out, go back into your Pyramids game, then back out again and repeat. Your progress should have gone up by 1. Keep repeating until you unlock your achievement. I personally had cleared 5 boards and then back out and did these steps and each time I check progress it went up by 5. So I would try to clear as many boards as you can and this will go by faster because your progress will go up depending on how many boards you have cleared.

    Credit goes to Zszaiss for finding this trick on mobile. I'm not sure if it works on Windows 10 or not.
