Hey Kurt!

Quick question... it seems my achievements have stopped working?

I've won 12 single games, and have a Kings score of 7,235. But the achievements for 10 wins in Single and the 3,000, 4,000 and 5,000 points achievements for Kings mode haven't registered!

War. War never changes.

Started playing this again recently, after I checked out Sage Solitaire and decided it wasn't quite working for me in the same way that this did. This has an even simpler looking layout than Sage Solitaire, but just as much complexity, especially when you take on the Kings mode.

Note that it's now called King Solitaire on the App Store - I think 4 Thrones was a better name but I guess it didn't aid discovery.
