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

This achievement appears to be bugged 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.
