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.

If this doesn't work for you try the following, credits to DropDeadArtemus

"I was just able to unlock this on the most recent version. I got to the complete screen in crossword, opened the xbox app on my pc to see the percentage go up, closed the game, re-opened the game, went to the crossword section, THERE WAS NO STAT SCREEN, but I refreshed the xbox app and my percentage went up. I kept doing that until the achievement popped"
