    [Edit: It seems that the game was patched to unlock the achievement as soon as you change the theme now. The below only applies if you haven't updated the game since launch. Thanks everyone!]

    This is very easy, but the description is not very specific. It's not enough to swtich themes in the main menu -- you have to start a new game using a theme, exit to the main menu, switch to a new theme, and then resume the game. As soon as you re-enter the game and see the tiles, the achievement will pop.

    Slam Shot SamThis didn't unlock for me after the first change, I had to do a second for it to unlock (used each of the themes), so don't worry if it doesn't pop right away.

    ScuzzyBunnyNot sure if it got patched/ updated/ or I just caught the servers right, but I got my achv by simply changing the theme (without ever loading a game) in the main menu! Selected the space one, and the achv popped immediately.
