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

In the image above the pattern is in the top right hand corner. Now, we need to click on the blocks directly next to the 1's. Like so.

Now as long as we've selected both these blocks within three seconds of uncovering the pattern, that counts as one of your twenty completed patterns. Both blocks must be individually revealed yourself, it won't work if one is already uncovered for you - thanks MrZombieChicken.

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. :)
