    There is a lot easier way to get this achievement - go to options, change the difficulty to easy then go to menu and start a single player game on novice snd start on level 5.
    This makes it a hell of a lot easier. In arcade mode I could only get around 12-13k, but using this method I ended up with over 100k! w00t!

    WhytePantherA big part of the reason this seems to work, is that this particular mode gives you less colors to match versus the arcade mode, thus making it easier to keep the stacks low, and to randomly have matches occur when you might not be planning them out. Worked like a charm.

    From the main menu go to
    Original Game - 1 Player
    Class - Novice
    Level - 0
    Time Trial - No

    Another trick I came across is whenever it starts going stupid fast. Bring up the menu and make a save, for some reason the game will be a lot slower and controllable for about a minute or so.

    Hope this helps!

    OmfamnaI couldn't get more than 6 or 7,000 in this game, I followed this solution and I was able to get the 20,000 easily, Thank you!

    One additional note is that this CAN be accomplished on the difficulty level "Easiest" in the options. The "Easy" refers only to the setting in Arcade mode, but as people have noted it can be done in the Menu mode as well.
