    • Playing
      • Basics
        • Select cards on the tableau which are one higher or lower than the card atop the waste pile.
        • Draw another card from the reserves or use a Wild Card if you can’t make any more moves on the tableau.
      • Bonus cards
        • This game has 4 bonus cards hidden inside the tableau on each level.
          • Wild Card: This can be played at any time to keep a chain bonus streak going or to make a hard to match pair.
          • Golden Card: Temporarily doubles the score you earn so long as you keep the current chain active.
          • Chain +1: Boosts your chain bonus by one.
          • Make Visible: This card depicting a card with its corner turned up will make all remaining cards on the tableau visible for a couple seconds.
        • Any unused bonus cards get carried forward to the next stage.
    • Levels
      • This game has 6 levels which are unlocked sequentially.
        • You can’t go back to replay previously beat levels without starting the game over.
      • You are given 4 minutes to beat each level.
        • If you lose a level by running out of time or playable cards it is game over.
        • When your game ends you can submit your score to the high score list.
        • If you want to continue a game after failing a level do not hit the End Game button, but instead refresh your web browser, then when you click the play button again you can continue your prior game.
    • Strategy
      • Try to work on all parts of the tableau at once rather than leaving one long leg while working down the other parts.
        • This ensures each card you pull from the reserves has a greater chance of matching one of the cards you need & makes it easier to build longer chain bonuses.
        • It also prevents you from having to sequentially precisely match only one value repeatedly.
      • Continuing after failing a level
        • If you want to continue a game after failing a level do not hit the End Game button, but instead refresh your web browser, then when you click the play button again you can continue your prior game.
      • Maximizing your level score
        • The key to maximizing your score is to take advantage of the chain bonus.
          • When you see many sequential matchable cards on the tableau immediately use double score and chain bonus cards as soon as you can match into that run.
          • When the run ends use a Joker and then continue the run.
          • If you are unsure which cards to use to continue the run or which direction to go on a run with multiple options you can use the Make Visible card to see what cards you’ll make accessible from various move options.
    • Scoring
      • Your game score is cumulative across levels.
      • Each card you remove from the playing field is worth 50 points.
      • Chain bonus
        • By making multiple consecutive moves on the tableau without dealing another card from the reserves you can activate a chain bonus.
        • The chain bonus is a multiplier of the card lay value, so a chain bonus of 9 is worth 450 points.
      • Each unused card you have remaining in the talon or reserves at the end of the level is worth 15 points.
      • Each second you have remaining at the end of beating a level is worth 5 points.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for players who celebrate Christmas and like Tripeaks Solitaire card games.
    • The game has no adult themed content.
