Much easier than the confusing description suggests. First, play and restart boards until you get a pattern of tiles that goes 1 2 1. This cannot be done on Custom difficulty - thanks Skanker irl.

In the image above the pattern is in the top left hand corner. Now, we need to click on the block directly next to the 2. Like so.

Now as long as we've selected this block within three seconds of uncovering the pattern, that counts as one of your twenty completed patterns.

To unlock this achievement quickly and easily, simply select a square with a bomb in it and fail the grid. Now select 'Play same board' and repeat the process. Since the board is always the same when doing this, you should be able to complete the patterns very quickly. Repeat twenty times and the achievement is yours. :)
