Choose game no: 270618 - 9 cards immediately go up to the top which makes it relatively easy to get rid of the remainder without getting more than 7 in any column.

londonwelshI guess I could have given a move-by-move solution, but as you say it's pretty easy - got it first go myself and I'm by no means an expert!

SeoulcrusherAlso got it on my first try. Great solution! Thanks!

CheesierJointI must be thick, how do you "Choose game no: 270618" ?
Posted by CheesierJoint on 06 Aug 15 at 11:32
DuBear61Thanks cheesier, I'd also like to know how to select a particlar game no.
Posted by DuBear61 on 06 Aug 15 at 13:55
CheesierJointFound it in another guide
Start Freecell, (this is the key)
Click the hamburger menu (the 3 lines),
Go to options
Enter the number

AZ MongooseGot it first try with game number 270618. Didn't even need the step by step (thanks a ton for putting the work in to add it though). Great solution.

tehPinkBulletsIve done this like 20 times on my android and 5 on my computer and still no pop up. I'e uninstalled and reinstalled 3 times.... my only achievement left. Anyone have this too?? I'm out of ideas...
Posted by tehPinkBullets on 26 Oct 18 at 14:39
psportalI got this on Android on another custom game (I forgot the number).

You should include in your solution that undos do not affect the game; if you make a mistake, you can just undo and carry on. Unlocked the achievement that way.

SilverLining 87Thank you for this guide it helped a lot but I was struggling to keep track of this with them wrote in shorthand so I went through a wrote them in full so I could go down the list easier and thought I might as well copy and paste the full version in here too for anyone like me. I hope you don't mind.

The Ninjew46I've done this maybe 10 times now following step by step without success. I'm not saying this is a bad guide, I'm just hoping that someone may know why this isn't working for me. I haven't accidentally messed up and had more than 7 cards in one column, and I haven't undone any moves in case that voided the achievement as well. Is this achievement bugged for me? What should I do?
