    How to unlock Mining for Gold

    This is one that definitely won't come naturally and will take some conscious effort to set up, as well as some luck with card set-up. What you have to do is use 5 cards in a row from the waste pile (aka the discard pile) with no other moves in between.

    It's tough to set this up on purpose in any game, since you really are relying on luck with the card setup. A better method is, since you have to win 100 games of Klondike anyway for the "Blizzard of Bliss" achievement, keep alert for a possibility of doing this achievement in each game you play. Play like normal, and watch out for instances where you end up using a bunch of cards from the stock in a row. After you use five in a row, Undo back to before you used them, then turn them all over into the waste (discard) pile, and then use five cards in a row from the waste pile.

    You'll have to just be patient with this achievement and keep it in the back of your head while winning Klondike games. You will definitely come across multiple opportunities over the 100 games you win, just stay alert.

    The achievement will unlock immediately upon meeting the requirements.
