The achievement is very self-explanatory. Finish a game (preferably on easy if you will) while lifting you phone above your head and letting the screen face the ground, like when you are lying in bed.

One thing I want to point out is that if you have the GDR3 update onboard, you probably will have to enable your screen autorotation. I won several times with screen rotation locked to portrait and the achievement did not unlock. And then right after I enabled autorotation, I unlocked the achievement on my first try.

Note: As per BADW0LF 01, you need to win a new board should you fail the current one (Do not replay the same board).

My phone: Nokia Lumia 1520 (GDR3 + Lumia Black).

More Info:
Phone with GDR3: OS Version: 8.0.10521.155 (e.g. AT&T Lumia 1520 stock)
Phone with GDR2: OS Version: 8.0.10328.78 (e.g. AT&T Lumia 920 with latest update (Late 2013))
If you have any version that is older than GDR3, you will not find the option to turn off autorotation, as autorotation is ALWAYS ON on those phones, meaning you should not need to change anything to make it work.

Hope this will solve the same problem you might be facing.
