    For this, I highly recommend going into 'Chill Marathon' mode in Effects mode.
    Choose whichever level you like, as that doesn't matter. However, I do recommend having 'traditional colours' for the tetrominoes set in the game options.

    Make sure that the piece selection you have set when you start the game is 'Fixed', not Random. This will allow you to get an even distribution of pieces, and disregard bad RNG.

    I recommend going for this combo with a four-wide valley, as you can see in my achievement video below:

    ScarbirI got to 14 once... with a hole of three instead of four. So difficult!

    TjstolkGot to 14 my first try and got the achievement on my third. Great guide! Would have never gotten this one with normal play.

    What helped me a lot was putting the number of pieces in the 'queue' to 5. It was way easier to plan ahead this way.

    DwaggieniteI'm glad this helped :) And yes, setting queue to five works well, too.

    gothmogesThat took way longer than 3 tries facepalm, but the 4-wide alley definitely helped. You still need some practice and good luck, though.

    Madtown BStill wrestling with this one, but I found that Quick Play also allows you to set order to fixed, so it's another good option.

    One advantage that quick play has over casual marathon is that it never speeds up, and you can clear the board without a game over. Handy if you get super close and want another shot at it with the same tetronimo sequence.

    I'm also double tasking avatars with attempting this one, since Quick Play is currently in the global event. If I fail to do the combo, I just quick get 30 lines for an avatar, rinse and repeat.

    This achievement is just doggin me though. Even with fixed order, many sequences are still simply impossible.
