-Use your mouse or touchscreen to select and move cards.
-Right Click or swipe the bottom of the screen to use hints.

From the main menu, play a game of Spider, using hints to help you win to unlock "First One's Free" & "Well Played". Now cycle through the 5 gametypes, and back out of each game, registering a loss to unlock "Jack of All Trades".

Well Played - 10
Win your first game of Solitaire

The easiest card gametype to play, in my opinion, is "Spider". Just stack the cards from King to Ace, and try to get all the cards off the board. If you make a move that makes your stack unsolvable, the game will tell you that you lost, and you'll have to restart. You can use the "Hint" feature at any point, but keep in mind, it won't always give you the best move. I suggest that you leave the hint for parts where you're stuck or unsure of a good move. Take your time to solve a stack to unlock this achievement.

First One's Free - 10
Flip over your first card

From the main menu, click on any gametype, and then click on a card. Use "Hint" if you're not sure where to click.

Jack of All Trades - 20
Play at least 1 game of Klondike, FreeCell, Spider, TriPeaks, and Pyramid

This achievement should take about 1 minute. From the main menu, click a gametype, flip a card, and back out to the main menu. It will count as a loss, and ask you if you are sure you want to quit. Cycle through the 5 gametypes and keep quitting and you'll unlock the achievement.

The 5 gametypes are:
