Winning Each Game Type

If you just want the achievements quickly you can just continue to ask for a hint until the game completes. To be honest other that Klondike I find the game variants boring.

Apparently they will add more achievements later. It's free (and it's fuckign solitaire), so I don't really care either way.

For the Jack of All Trades achievement, you can start up a game, right click, choose quit, and it counts as a played - albeit lost - game. Could in theory get this achievement in less than 60 seconds.
