    The quickest level I found while grinding out this achievement was the medium level called crosshair. If you use the technique of double clicking the lightbulb to show the next best two available moves, rather than doing one lightbulb click at a time, you will fly through the levels. I managed to get my time down to about 1.15 mins per level using this technique.

    The lightbulb is found by clicking the right hand side of the phone screen, roughly in the middle.

    Here is a solution that ScuzzyBunny wrote about and MathGuy42 kindly explained in the comments. You will need a Window's 8 and phone version to do this though

    1. Start a puzzle on Win 8, for example, Dragon. Play until you only have 2 tiles left.
    2. Press the Back arrow in the upper right.
    3. Select Dragon on WP.
    4. Select Cloud.
    5. Complete the puzzle on WP. Push Back arrow on your phone to skip the fireworks.
    6. Select Dragon on Win 8.
    7. Choose Local. You'll see the same two tiles left.
    8. Repeat Steps 2-7 until the achievement unlocks at Step 5.

    Hope this helps.

    Fadi kunI still think doing it the way the OP suggests is faster since you can use both thumbs for matching and I'm slower with the mouse and larger screen. Just my opinion though.

    MathGuy42ScuzzyBunny's suggestion is to use the exact same puzzle over and over again. Here are specific steps:
    1. Start a puzzle on Win 8, for example, Dragon. Play until you only have 2 tiles left.
    2. Press the Back arrow in the upper right.
    3. Select Dragon on WP.
    4. Select Cloud.
    5. Complete the puzzle on WP. Push Back arrow on your phone to skip the fireworks.
    6. Select Dragon on Win 8.
    7. Choose Local. You'll see the same two tiles left.
    8. Repeat Steps 2-7 until the achievement unlocks at Step 5.

    Here is a really quick way of getting this achievement if you have the windows 8 version.

    What you have to do is choose a puzzle on the windows 8 version and get down to the last 2 tiles then back out. On the windows phone choose the same puzzle and click cloud, then on the windows 8 version choose local then back out. Do that as many times as you need to and the achievement is yours!
