Credit goes to Geoffistopheles for his King Of The Hill Solution for Microsoft Solitaire Collection (Win 8)

This achievement is for completing 100 of either Klondike, Spider, or FreeCell. For this solution we will be using FreeCell. FreeCell differs from the other Solitaire games in that you can enter the seed number of a game. We will be using the Seed #10913. So start up a FreeCell game, open the "Menu", and go to "Game Options". Here you will change the game # to 10913. Your first few tries will take about 1:30 but you will quickly memorize these steps and be able to consistently finish in around 0:30. My personal best is 0:18 (subtle brag). Below I have included a written version of each step as well as a video because well...reading roll Enjoy!

Completing this process 100 times will also net you this achievement if you haven't already:

Thank you for viewing this solution! I hope it was helpful dance
SprowtI've just done this for the first time and when the game is completed it says Games Played: 1, Games Won: 0.
Does it still go towards the win 100 games even though it says 0?

InjuryProne19Yes. You can check your achievement progress in the game for assurance.

Mr GimpsonThis isn't adding the wins to my stats :(
Posted by Mr Gimpson on 15 May 16 at 21:47
InjuryProne19Mr Gimpson, in the game go to achievements and check your progress. The in game counter does not go up for some reason.
Posted by InjuryProne19 on 15 May 16 at 21:51
Mr GimpsonThe achievement count isn't either, stuck on 25 games. Maybe they've patched this

XxFrAsZeRxXSame thing happened to me. However, I played one regular game of FreeCell, and then my count jumped up, and now it's counting these short games again. Try doing that, maybe it will fix the problem.

OnzaOn PC are others getting the "This game won't count..." message when you click on the "Enter game #" box?

Lord BaneJ@ Onza - I have the same error message on mobile as well.

ZX KNIGHTDon't know if I'm doing something wrong or the puzzle has changed but the step by step guide doesn't match how the game plays out for some reason.

ALoneWolf42I wish Daily and Star games counted towards these totals. I'm sure I've completed at least 100 of those by now, but it only seems to track standard games. :(
