I was without Internet for a couple of days, so I made a set for this as purely just ideas. Although I stink at programming, I love coming up with ideas and giving back to the community that has treated me so well. It would be nice to have some multiplayer achievements too, but in the meantime, here it is.

It is in order of Achievement Title / Achievement Description / Points. Sorry if it is a little messy, I cut and pasted from Excel, so pardon the mess.
Stage 2 Advance To Floor 2 5
Stage 3 Advance To Floor 3 5
Winner's Circle Finish Stage 3 and finish the game 10

I had considered doing a set for this game, but couldn't come up with anything beyond the "complete each board" and "finish a puzzle quickly". You've definitely got some good ideas here, but I'd probably lower the points on several of those and only make a 200 (or 300) point set. Maybe I'll take another look at it in a couple weeks.

Achievements and Rich Presence added.

* Complete each board (x4)
* Win against at various combinations of CPU opponents and difficulties (x7)
* Winning challenges (x6)
* Puzzle challenges (x5)
* Board challenges (x8)

I've implemented thirteen of gavmanwv3's suggestions, expanded on some of them, and added a few of my own.
