Microsoft Solitaire Collection • Won a game of Spider Solitaire by first drawing all of the extra cards before making a move • 40G • 0.55% of gamers unlocked this

Now this is an achievement. Less than one percent of gamers unlocked it? Either the entire world has been giving this one a red hot go, or it’s just particularly challenging.

Spoiler alert: after spending the better part of two days trying to get this achievement, reading about it, talking about it, doing research on it, I’m prepared to say it’s the latter.

I still have old Wolfenstien on the spindle ready to line up – and again, I had planned to give him a go tonight, but I figured that when I eventually earned this achievement then it would be worth chronicling above all others, so here we are.

To be honest, this one is fifty percent luck, fifty percent patience. Since Solitaire has been updated, you have the option of requesting a ‘solveable’ deck, which surely seems to put a decent assortment of ‘like’ cards close to each other, but if I’m perfectly honest, I don’t know the algorithm. I just play the game, and this one was tricky. But it’s done. And I did it. Onto the next Solitaire challenge, none of which are likely to be finished in a day.
