Good To Be King

Play a game of TriPeaks and Pyramid in which a King is the last card you remove from a board.  

As the achievement description says, you need to complete a board in both TriPeaks and in Pyramid in which a King is the last card you remove from the board.

Unfortunately you're stuck waiting for the game to automatically generate a board in which a King is at the peak so you can remove it last. At least with Pyramid games, you can see all the cards, so you can keep starting a new game until you get a board with a King at the top. With TriPeaks you'll have to just hope one of the peaks ends up being a King when you flip it over.

Thankfully you'll almost definitely run into this situation in both game types well before clearing 100 boards in each for the respective achievements. I actually unlocked this achievement before even finishing 10 boards of each, so it should come naturally and you shouldn't have to focus on it. For Pyramid especially, if a King is at the peak, you'll be set. For TriPeaks, if you flip a peak card and it's a King, just make a conscious effort to save it for last.

One other thing to make sure that when there is a King at the peak, that you can successfully complete the board, is to make sure you opt to get a wild card at the start of the game. If you upgrade to Premium, you will get this option before every game. If you don't, it'll be every few games. Keep the wild card for a board where a King is at the peak, that way if the cards don't align such that the King can be eliminated last, you can use the wild card to try to force the King to be last. Remember, if it doesn't work out, undo to before you used the wild card and save it for the next board.
