I've found about 3 6 squares while playing medium or hard, and yet have not gotten this achievement. Is there something that I'm missing? (I'm not doing play same board, I place all 6 mines around the square correctly, and I beat the board after it's over).

I'm fairly certain it means "without uncovering any of the 6 or mines beforehand". As a result, this is purely luck-based.

I just got it by playing on custom mode w 64 mines, even though it wouldn't be counted. I'm not sure if the Description is incorrect, or if it was a glitch.

Won't pop for me. I did what comment 3 suggested, played on expert, clicked on a 6 also tried comment 4 custom 9x9 with ~55 mines, got a 7 still nothing, annoying.

I just got this achievement on an Expert level. It looked like this once I was able to reveal the 6:


(The asterisks being marked flags.) So, basically, you just have to reveal a 6 (or higher) while there is still at least one unknown mine around it.
