I found that the easiest way to get this achievement was to set the game to the easiest game setting and then during the game PAUSE!!
Unlike Tetris and other games like this the next column that you need to place doesnt dissappear, so you can find a place for it whilst the game is paused, taking away all need to panic!!
The game does get a bit faster around the 8000 point mark but if you keep the stacks nice and low you have all the time in the world!:)
Piece of cake!!!

Hi all!

Dont know if this has been posted before even better way is stack to one side and leave one colum completley free, then when u get the flashing block put it in the empty column you get 10,000 points yes! 10,000! then i just paused and picked spots as i only had around 6k left to get! (you dont need to)

Also if u drag the blocks down u get points aswell, just incase noone knew!

Good luck!!

I managed to get two special blocks by sheer luck and since I was curious about that 'leave a column empty' I tried it... Lo and behold, easiest 20k ever lol

Super easy way; just change difficulty to easy, go to menu and start from round 5

Best Method is to play on the normal thing in the menu set it to novice play level 5 and stack all ur colums on the left and right side leaving the one default drop line open and u will jus naturally get combos thats what i did and 20k was easy as pie lol no pun intended... alright alright maybe i did lol

Thanks for all the help fellas. Pausing and putting the special blocks on an empty spot really helped me out. I thought I'd never get this achievement.

There is an easier way than filling up your screen, just place pieces on the left most column and the right most column and a flashing block will appear.

Yeah this one was busting my balls then I realized I could simply pause the game and figure out where to move the blocks.

After many tries, I used the stack em and wait for the Flashing Blocks trick and it worked. Really glad to have gotten this one finished.
