To get this achievement you must surround one hexagon piece of any color with 6 other pieces that are all the same color (see achievement pic for an example).

What this does is create a Starflower piece that allows you to rotate the 6 pieces surrounding it without needing to have made a combo for the move to stay.

Anyway, you'll probably get this as you progress through Marathon mode. Just keep your eyes peeled for a group of same-colored pieces.
GibGirlI highly disagree that this is mainly luck. In fact, creating starflowers (and then pearls) is the primary goal of Hexic.

When you start a game, this is what you should immediately look for - the beginnings of creating a starflower. Look what pieces are nearby, and devote your effort to creating that first starflower. Once you have one, then you can start to use it to create more.

OtisFamilyThanks for the comment. In fact, I don't even remember why I threw in the "luck" portion to the solution. I haven't played the game since, but I do agree that luck is only a small part.

StoodBridgeThis is almost guaranteed achieved in the first 30 minutes.

prokopthis was luck for me.. i still dont fully understand what the hell is going on. i just turn colours to match others and sometimes like 15 things just blow up and go away. its awesome now but when i actually have to make black pearls or flowers or whatever i have to make, this game will make me lose my mind.
