    Note: As of July 2017, people have reported this achievement not reliably unlocking upon completing all challenges. Based on previous experiences with MS Casual Daily Challenge achievements, I'd recommend repeating a challenge after completing the month to try triggering the achievement.

    Some tips and guidance for conquering the daily challenges:

    Gem Collector
    The challenge is random every time you start it. It is possible for the presented challenge to be unsolvable (like if you have a highlighted consonant in a corner surrounded by other consonants that don't get along with it). Clicking the restart button in the upper right is helpful to reset the board in this situation, or if the challenge has a whacky tile that the solver you are using can't handle.
    The solver I prefer to use is: http://www.dcode.fr/wordament-solver

    Bomb Defusal
    Another random every time you start it challenge, although you won't come across unsolvable challenges.
    The solver I prefer to use is: http://www.wordfind.com/ - I've yet to encounter a challenge word it didn't know about, and there's a very low rate of words it gives that the game doesn't accept.

    Mystery Clue
    These will be the bane of your completion quest, as they take quite a bit longer to solve then the other two challenges. Fortunately they are only partially random: the crossword itself will be the same every time you start it, but the mystery clue itself will be random each time. I highly recommend screen-shotting or otherwise writing down the crossword solution before using up your last mystery clue guess. Don't repeat my mistake of having to completely redo an Expert challenge just from memory after blowing the one and only chance presented.
    There are so many crossword solvers out there, and they all have varying levels of success helping with these challenges - I've yet to find a preferred one. I will say the mystery clues that I can't figure out on my own tend to stump the solvers as well.

    SangriazSorry, I just re-read your solution and my question was already answered there. Since the puzzle for crossword is always same, maybe collectively getting screenshots to get daily solutions would be helpful.

    PocketSnails68So, can this achievement be earned through changing the clock, or do I literally need to log in everyday for this?

    Espio IdsavantPocketSnails, this achievement has no time bounds beyond the month itself; you could complete all the challenges on the last day of the month and you'd still get the achievement. The time bound achievement is:
    Microsoft Ultimate Word Games (Win 10)MarathonThe Marathon achievement in Microsoft Ultimate Word Games (Win 10) worth 88 pointsCome back each day of an entire month and complete at least one Daily Challenge.

    That achievement can be won by changing the clock and playing at least one challenge each 'day'.

    kintarisAnyone else end up with '-1 challenges left' after completing the month? I have a PERFECT rating for June in my stats but sadly no achievement cry

    TexasERockkintaris, I experienced the same thing. No achievement and -1 for June.
    Then after I started writing this comment, it popped. Hopefully yours will, too.

    Espio IdsavantI know its a little too late for June, but if it reoccurs next month, try re-doing one of the challenges... I know that's helped kick start lagged achievements in previous daily challenge achievements.

    MCASguruIf this is like some of the other games, you'll need to do a month that has 31 days. I hope not, since I'm at day 28 of 30 completed. EDIT: Popped just now, 30 days hath September. Done and done!

    SimpsoDid this in December, stats show Perfect and 0 challenges left to complete.
    But no Cheevo :(
    Attempted redoing an old challenge. Nothing is popping.
