If you have the initial version of the game pre-Version 3.0.51501.0, you can use the following trick to speed up this achievement.

It seems there is currently a loophole bug that allows you to complete the same map over and over.

I did all three April's maps and when I completed the third one (wordament), every time I closed the game and returned to it, it gave me the option to open the final gate again.

As confirmed by lots os people in the comments, the glitch still works in version 3.0.60103.0, but slightly different. You only need to complete (get to the final gate) in one game mode. After the game indicates that the maps was completed, don't press any of the options. Also, after restarting the game (fully closing the app and reopen), the animation will indicate another map completion, without the need of reopening the gate.

If one day it gets patched, or you simply want to do it the hard way. You will have to complete 12 different maps.

In order to complete the maps, just play them (most of them are easy), use online solvers or abuse the hint system. Especially on crosswords, you can just keep hitting the hint button until it completes by itself.

Also, you can complete older maps if its month arrives to the end.

There are also reports of progress counting twice when finishing and perfecting the map. So keep this mind if you want them quickly.

So you can do this in Wordament, Jumble, or Crosswords. Each has an adventure map mode.

One you finish a map, you can use the "More Maps" button at the top of the current map to open previous maps. I haven't quit figured out how many previous maps you can open, but I think it has something to do when you first played, and maybe finished, a particular map.

So with this in mind, it might be best to knock of a map ASAP, just so you can maximize your "More Maps" options.

FYI, my first unlocked achievement for this game was in June, and the oldest map I can open is April. This makes me think you can only back up two months. But once your locked in, you can go back at your leisure and work on them.

I personally think Wordament is the easiest of the three, as I have all maps from April to August completed. For Jumble and Crosswords, maps from April are there, but I'm nowhere near 100% on the maps.
