This achievement is from completing any hard puzzle in Mahjong for Windows 8.

If you're like me, and don't like Mahjong, you can abuse of the hint system and finish the puzzle.

Basically, keep pressing 'H' in the keyboard and select the two tiles that are flashing. Do this until the end.

I did not get to any deadlock situation, so if you do, restart the puzzle.

You will also gain the following achievement by doing that (unless you already have it):

Microsoft Mahjong (Win 8)The Fun BeginsThe The Fun Begins achievement in Microsoft Mahjong (Win 8) worth 10 pointsComplete a puzzle.

UPDATE: As reported by some users, this achievement may glitch and not unlock for some. There is no info why it happens nor ways to solve the problem solely using windows machines.

Nevertheless, KinectKid333 pointed out that if you have a windows phone and unlock it there, it will unlock once you finish a game like Nautilus.
YinAnyone who is curious as to whether or not you can download these Microsoft titles should also post if they themselves cannot find the download. I'm on Windows RT and this game does not appear in the downloads on my tablet. Good solution though!

AP E JCIn which marketplace you're in?
Posted by AP E JC on 27 Oct 12 at 20:53
M00SEThis game (along with some other ones) are only available on Windows 8 not Windows RT. Although Microsoft has said they will update the games to support Windows RT.

VictimOfDesireI just beat the Nautilius puzzle twice and I haven't gotten the achievement....what gives?
Posted by VictimOfDesire on 08 Nov 12 at 23:52
VictimOfDesireNevermind. It seems like some of the achievements don't pop when you get them. A simple restart of the game and the achievement was unlocked.

Zarrok67I've played Nautalis at least 10 times now and the achievement still won't unlock. Any help would be appreciated!

AP E JCHave you guys tried, deleting the game and reinstalling? There are repors here of people unlocking so I don't think it is a bug. Maybe a glitch for some?
Posted by AP E JC on 15 Dec 14 at 09:10
KinectKid333Idk I've beat turtle 1 time and nautilus about 5 times, 2 of which were without any hints or undos, and it doesn't say I've one a single game in my stats, however I have the fun begins achievement. I have not yet uninstalled and reinstalled yet so Ill try that.

Jamone the AfroI have beaten nautilus numerous times now and still haven't unlocked this. I reset the pc a couple of times, that didn't work so I uninstalled the game and reinstalled twice but still no luck

AP E JCThanks for the info, I will update the solution accordingly.

KinectKid333There is a way I got it. I installed Mahjong on WP and unlocked it there. Then I beat nautilus on Win8 and it unlocked for Win8

Jamone the AfroOk so after uninstalling and re installing continuously, I gave up and just uninstalled it and left it for a couple of weeks. Downloaded it the other day, tried it for the first time today and finally unlocked it. I don't know whether this is due to a glitch or if they updated the game recently

BigWiIIieStyIeYou also get 1 free refresh, I'm not great but removed enough tiles where the refresh worked after deadlocked

ThaDevilzHandI went straight to Nautilus and although it didn't say I unlocked the achievement in the game, when I got on TA it scanned me sometime after that and it said I unlocked all of them. So in my case at least, even though it may not say you got it in game TA may show you that you in fact did unlock it.

AP E JCThaDevilzHand, you're right, and This happens a lot with windows 10 achievements.
