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.
Johnny SinisterWorked like a charm. Up voted.

talkietoasta84Why am I only reading this AFTER having played through 100 boards legitimately?? Grr...
Posted by talkietoasta84 on 12 Dec 16 at 23:47
TophertaniumMaybe it's not bugged. Technically, you are clearing the board to put the new board down...

I'm sure that's not what they meant. OR DID THEY?!

XxFrAsZeRxXAs of 2/14/17 it is no longer working on Windows 10, it seems. I hit new game about 99 times, and the achievement counter in the menu stayed the same.

YOOPER 906The achievement counter doesn't change but the progress towards the achievement still counts, if I read this correctly. ^

YOOPER 906I can confirm that it's still working on Win 10. I did "New Game" 25 times then cleared a board. Kept doing it this way until the achievement popped.

MathachewJust confirmed that it is still working. Progress showed 0% the entire time until I unlocked it.

KAW 24I already had 73 boards cleared but this made it very easy to do the final 27.

ZSquared8080So I actually found that something similar does work on Android OS (I just got this achievement today).

I went into a pyramid game and cleared two boards legit. I then backed out because I was checking the status of clearing 10 boards, but had only 9. When I went back in, the 10 board achievement popped. I double checked, and I was gaining an additional 2 boards cleared each time I entered the Pyramid mode.

So I think, once you clear a board, you can back out of Pyramid mode using the back button, then re-enter, and have that cleared board count multiple times toward the achievement. I don't know whether this works on iOS or Windows. It doesn't work with TriPeaks.

Dajko84Thanks very much for this solution. I have cleared at least 200 boards till I read about this bug facepalm.

LancerideI can confirm that zszaiss' solution also works on Android. Thanks. Saved a ton of time. I would recommend adding it to the solution.

PineConeKillerzszaiss' solution in the comments did work though! On IOS. 100 board clears in under a minute.

Apostle92627Didn't work on either my Android phone or Windows 10.

Apostle92627Finally got the achievement despite the trick not working. Gave you a down vote. Sorry.

AxelSteel15Did they ever fix this for Windows 10? Even though the Stats screen isn't counting board clears correctly, the achievement tally IS for me (I checked on the achievement screen after every board clear and it's going up by one for each clear). I have not been able to get the trick to work. Fingers crossed that it'll pop after the 100th legitimate win.
Posted by AxelSteel15 on 09 Mar 18 at 18:06
AxelSteel15Update: just got my 100th win. It unlocked completely fine for me. The problem appears to be fixed for the Windows 10 version.
Posted by AxelSteel15 on 14 Mar 18 at 02:40
Myckel JayDang. I played 99 games legit. I tried to stop at 99 so that I could save the 100th game for when I'm away from home so I could keep my achievement streak going. I won the 99th game and got the achievement. I guess this explains why. Bummer.

Hudifuszszaiss's method works on Ios as of 8/7/18 clap
Posted by Hudifus on 07 Aug 18 at 22:45
F77BlokyThanks zszaiss! This made clearing the last 50 boards much faster than the first 50.
Posted by F77Bloky on 31 Aug 18 at 07:39
MrNoLuckFoxOn the Windows 10 Version, for Pyramids, you can do the similar method as Zszaiss with completing one board, hitting the back button in the top left, then re-loading the board and repeating.

I've gone from 0-29 in about a minute in the progress bar and have unlocked the one for completing 10 boards already.

Calex dEUS@ MrNoLuckFox Worked for me thanks, didn't see it pop on screen though so had to check in the xbox app after a few minutes of clicking
Posted by Calex dEUS on 03 Oct 18 at 11:28
mrbellekCan confirm that the method zszaiss described still works on Pyramids on Android! I went from 38 to 100 in 5 minutes.

NuttySandman123My counter has stopped progressing at 90 out of 100 and I'm doing it legit

Darth James OThe OP's method didn't work for me, but much love to mrnoluckfox for their amazing suggestion which worked perfectly.

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

Friggin GreaseI was able to do the last 10 on a Windows 10 PC
