Completing every daily challenge in a month is not that hard, it just takes dedication. You don't have to play every day, since you can go back to previous days in the month and play those challenges. However, at the end of the month, all challenges reset so make sure you get them all done by the last day of the month. Theoretically, you could just play on the last day and get them all, but personally, I'd find that to be a lot of solitaire in a day. However, it's totally doable.

You can get the solutions for the hardest challenge on any given day by checking the videos by Voranc on Youtube.

Beware though, that he/she doesn't keep the videos up forever. But as long as you clear the challenges once every few days, you'll be fine.

Also, as an added bonus, since you have to complete every challenge in a month, you'll also earn
Microsoft Solitaire Collection (UWP)MarathonThe Marathon achievement in Microsoft Solitaire Collection (UWP) worth 139 pointsCome back each day of an entire month and complete at least one Daily Challenge

Update 4/20/16 - This achievement seems very glitchy these last few months. Check the comments section for reference.
DarkenedGreyTo add on to Delith's solution, I find the hardest ones to complete to be the time challenge ones in free cell, and Voranc goes way too fast in his videos to be able to do it side by side, and you can't pause the video because you'll run out of time in your own game. The trick is to watch only a few moves at a time in the video, pause the video, do the moves you just watched in your game, and then quickly hit the "Try again" button in the bottom left of the screen. DON'T ACTUALLY RESTART. Hitting this button once will freeze the timer so that you can watch the next section of the video, then hit "Cancel" and do the next set of moves and repeat as many times as necessary. Hopefully people understand what i'm getting at, cause it helped me out a lot.

kiesan88Not sure if it's for this month or not, but it seems glitched to me. Sitting at everything done, no perfect, diamond, or marathon unlocked.

Says Oct 1st has 5/6 completed, but theres only 5 challanges.
Posted by kiesan88 on 31 Oct 15 at 20:27
Tandar1Mine also says 5/6 for the first day, bugged?

Tandar1Super glitchy!

DarkRaver72November has 30 days, so there are 150 challenges, right? Since today it says that I need another 45 challenges for perfection, while I already did 135, making it 180 challenges! WTF.

DuBear61+1, I'd have never thought to look for videos. Voranc is a solitaire deity smile
Posted by DuBear61 on 27 Nov 15 at 22:04
DarkRaver72It glitched on me too. I did all challenges of November, but I did not get it. Says that I still need 30 more.
Posted by DarkRaver72 on 29 Nov 15 at 23:47
DivineWind72Same issue for me, Nov. 1st is saying 5/6 and I still need 30 challenges for perfection.

XtowersGot perfection on Windows 8, logged in on Windows 10 showing all challenges complete for the month, but the achievement progress tracker shows 154/155. ARG!

KaelseAchievement "Marathon" will not pop if the challenges are not completed every day, on the correct day.
Posted by Kaelse on 10 Jan 16 at 09:13
DelithKaelse - That is not true. Not for Solitaire. The only MS game that Marathon needs to be unlocked each day starting on the first is Taptiles. This game you can get it all in one sitting.

liviaroStarted this game in january and just finished the last daily challenges just to be stuck at 154/155 in the awards section :(
Posted by liviaro on 31 Jan 16 at 00:05
Sharock85Just to confirm: also stuck on 154/155 for January. Very annoying :s
Posted by Sharock85 on 31 Jan 16 at 00:13
TreviosoIf you complete this version of the achievement, does it synchronize with other Window Solitaire Versions?
Posted by Trevioso on 31 Jan 16 at 02:53
wings2For the Marathon achievement i had to do at least 1 achievement every day, or else the counter resetted. I had to do it twice too, first for W8, then on W10. Not all achievements and tasks went over to W10 when i updated my pc. Now i can't finish the W8 version unfortunately. I only had that with Solitaire btw.

MerchLAD97I've completed every challenge in February (which is 145 challenges), and on the awards it still says I need to do one more challenge. Absolute pisstake
Posted by MerchLAD97 on 29 Feb 16 at 01:52
UNDEADSPYR0I've also completed every daily challenge for February, says perfect 145/145 on the daily challenge section but 144/145 on the achievement :(
Posted by UNDEADSPYR0 on 29 Feb 16 at 14:33
MrZombieChickenLeap year bug perhaps?
I plan to start this one for the month of March. Hoping the guy who is making the videos keeps up the good work since I am horrible at card games.

Since I have both a Win8 & Win10 PC does that mean I have to do it again in April? Or will the achievement carry over?
Posted by MrZombieChicken on 29 Feb 16 at 18:55
liviaroSame for february, let's hope it's doable in march...
Posted by liviaro on 06 Mar 16 at 08:30
ChooseMyFateSame for March. No cheevo. (154/155)

(Ps 3 people earned this today)

THE Mr FillIt's also glitched for me, but in a different way - mine says 155/155, but won't unlock for me
I got the "perfect" pop-up, but no achievement, and I've re-started the game on the tablet, going to try re-starting the tablet to see if that works...

EDIT: A restart solves this, it didn't pop, but it's on Xbox now
Posted by THE Mr Fill on 31 May 16 at 08:41
liviaro5 perfect months and the achievement have yet to unlock, didn't work for me to restart my computer :(
Posted by liviaro on 31 May 16 at 21:58
Lord Von Chimpfound the Klondike on the 4th December 2016 is glitched, in the video for the day, reshuffling the deck doesn't count as a move, but I is on my game? Anyone know how to get around that? I keep failing needing 76 moves

EDIT: That was the phone version, doing this on the PC worked fine

zsoltee53In April 2017 the FreeCell challanges are changed on iOS in version 1.6.3242 and I think in every other mobile versions. Every FreeCell challanges have a random deck, so you can't use a guide. Still works on Windows 10!
Posted by zsoltee53 on 12 Apr 17 at 09:44
zsoltee53Looks like my problem is fixed in version 1.6.4255. smile

toddycstRestarted my phone and while it didn't pop, it popped up on TA, so that'll work.

Lawk3tHere is a great YouTube channel with videos for all daily challenges I used these video to get the last few ones for June 2017
Posted by Lawk3t on 30 Jun 17 at 20:17
Elcio the racerSeptember 12th, yap the freecell challenge was quite difficult, if I had not found the youtube channel of this post I would have given up the achievement

King NufftingsOctober 2017 155/155 b7t wont unlock. Sucks all that work for it not to pop lol.
Posted by King Nufftings on 31 Oct 17 at 18:17
King NufftingsGuess wait a few hours it unlocked for me now. I did re install the apo on the phone and it seemed to work afyereards
Posted by King Nufftings on 31 Oct 17 at 22:24
OnzaDecember 2017 155/155 did not pop. Hoping the waiting game works. Thanks King Nufftings, I hope you are right.

Well it's now 1/1/2018 and still not achievement. Quite buggered I'd say.
Well it's now 1/6/2018 and it still didn't pop, so going for 100% for January.
Posted by Onza on 06 Jan 18 at 17:48
MrNoLuckFoxFor people complaining about the videos moving too fast. If you are watching Youtube in a modern browser you can change the playback speed so you can hopefully keep up easier.

I'm able to follow a long pretty decently at .25 and sometimes even .5 speed for things in freecell
Posted by MrNoLuckFox on 01 Jul 18 at 22:52
Onza@MrNoLuckFox, very good tip!

Oh, and by the way, this did finally pop for me! smile
Posted by Onza on 03 Jul 18 at 01:32
Myckel JayDammit. I've had such good luck with getting all the buggy achievements for this game, but now it's saying I have 155/155 (which I do) but the achievement won't unlock. It's not unlocked in-game, on here OR on Any fixes?

Update: It unlocked next day for me.
Posted by Myckel Jay on 13 Aug 18 at 19:45
Ericmax69Unlocked fine for me as soon as I completed the last challenge.
Only got stuck on a couple of the expert ones, googled "(game) expert (date)" to find solutions (eg. "Freecell expert 26 October"), Got them from different sources on youtube, thanks for everyone putting them up.

DarkThomI would say for anyone looking to do this achievement, use the following site to get solutions for all free cell games, you just need to put in the cards that are dealt each time. I have used this all for all my freecell games as its my weakest game. Currently at 130/150 games with 4 days to go.
Posted by DarkThom on 26 Apr 20 at 20:52
xCENAxMODCan you get this by going back to a previous month through the calendar, or do you have to do it during the current month? Because the solutions stop in 2018, so I'm doing it on February 2018
Posted by xCENAxMOD on 08 Jul 20 at 17:57
Ericmax69@xCENAxNODx - for this one, I did it by completing the last puzzles on the last day of the month. For the same achievement on Microsoft Sudoku, I backdated it, so it should work. However, it glitched, and the Sudoku achievement kept popping on the Xbox on a daily basis for weeks afterwards.

EverStoned77It has come to my attention that the YT channel in the link are no longer updating their daily challenges so thought I'd add the one that I used, he doesn't post for every challenge only the ones abive medium but I've never had a challenge that I couldn't finish missing & most importantly, he still seem to be uploading videos on a regular base & has uploaded last a few days ago ... I might add that if you are gonna go for 100% completion paying for premium is a HUGE help because it doubles up your coins & opens up for previous months, so say you have previous months that you ran out of time to get gold on well now you can with no time limit, my biggest regret is that I didn't do it earlier then I'd be long done, but hey 2 silver & 4 golds & all that's left is the stupid grind of 100 of each roll
Anyway enough bla bla bla, here's the link:
If you do use any of his videos be nice & give the man a thumbs up (maybe even a subscibe) he deserves it for still doing it after all these yrs wave

ttfp saylowI'm so close to getting this (and the diamond achievement)… but the expert free cell ones have me stumped! I think there's two I have to do this month

SlackerINFERNOFor the last day I just changed the timezone on my phone forward a day after it was the 30th in that timezone

GremlinLord615Can this be done in a previous month? or does it have to be in the current month? Same for the Diamonds?
Posted by GremlinLord615 on 18 Nov at 19:16
From the guide:
However, at the end of the month, all challenges reset so make sure you get them all done by the last day of the month
I am however 99% sure I did it in a previous month & logically speaking I really can't see why you wouldn't be able to get it like that
& I know for certain that you can get the diamond in a previous month same as the bronze-gold daily challenges so again logically speaking if you can get those in previous months then why shouldn't it be possible with this achievement..? Good luck wave
