How to Play

  • Starting the Game
    • Select the Play button on the right side of the welcome screen to start the game.
    • Underneath the Play button are buttons for how to play Help, High Scores, and More Games.
    • The lower left corner of the welcome screen has a language select dropdown.
    • The lower right corner of the welcome screen has buttons for social media sharing & reading game developer information.
  • Game Controls
    • Desktop
      • Use your mouse left click button to select a card & then select another card which sums to 11.
    • Touchscreen devices
      • Tap the screen with a finger to select a card & then select its matching card to sum to 11.
    • Controls & indicators
      • Most of the numerical indicators are across the top of the game.
        • The game shows your score, gold, goal, and remaining level time across the top.
      • On the right side of the screen there are buttons to pause the game, control game sound, control game music, and switch to fullscreen mode.
      • Across the bottom of the game you have your reserves, waste pile, Jokers (with count above them), and your current level number.
  • Game Play
    • Deal
      • The first stage has 14 cards dealt to the tableau across 4 rows & 18 cards dealt to the reserves and waste piles.
    • Playing
      • Select matching pairs or sets of cards which add up to 11.
        • 1-10, 2-9, 3-8, 4-7, & 5-6 are pairs that add to 11.
        • You can also add sets of 3 or more cards that add to 11 like 1-3-3-4.
        • You can select cards from the tableau, the waste pile or any combination.
        • If you are stuck you can use a Joker with any other card to sum to 11.
          • The Jokers can only be used in conjunction with a single other card. You can’t do 2-7-Joker.
    • Levels
      • This game has 40 levels which are unlocked sequentially.
        • You can’t go back and replay previously beat levels without starting the game over on the first level.
        • Each board has a unique layout.
      • Level timers
        • The first stage gives you 1:09 to beat it.
          • Other levels have different time limits.
        • If you fail to clear the tableau of cards before the timer reaches zero you lose the level.
          • You can try again as the game offers an unlimited number of continues.
          • You can also submit your score to the high score list, though this erases your game progress and starts you back at the first level.
      • Bonus game
        • At the end of each round there is a bonus game where you select number tiles that sum to a target number.
        • The gold you earn in the bonus round can be used to purchase pieces of a Maya Pyramid.
          • The 4 triangle pieces you need on the edges of the second and third levels cost 850 gold each.
          • The square blocks cost 800, 900, or 950 each, depending on which ones you use. If you follow the example design shown exactly:
            • The top two rows (4 + 6) and the bottom row (10) are the 800 gloves stone (for a total of 16,000).
            • The two center stones in each of the 2 remaining rows (4 total) are also the 800 gloves stone (for a total of 3,200).
            • The three remaining stones on each side of the row up from the bottom (6 total) are the 950 skate stones (for a total of 5,700).
            • The two remaining stones on each side of the third row from the bottom (4 total) are the 900 goggles stones (for a total of 3,600).
          • The top costs 6,600.
          • The stairway costs 2,300.
          • Across 40 stages you would need to earn a total of 37,400 to afford to complete building the pyramid.
        • Early on in the bonus rounds you should aim to try to earn about 1,500 per bonus round, as your earnings for a set level of performance fall as you progress through the game & you need to have 8,900 saved up for the final 2 pieces of the game.
    • Strategy
      • Try to remove the cards which have many other cards underneath them first to open up the playing field.
      • In some cases it makes sense to play other inferior plays if the inferior play allows you to make many consecutive plays on the tableau.
      • Since you can add more than 2 cards together, try to get rid of the 9 and 10 cards on the tableau as early as you can as the other cards are easier to get rid of by making sets of 3 or more if the matching pair card is not available.
      • Don’t be afraid to use a Joker early on the level if doing so opens up a big part of the tableau.
    • Scoring
      • Your game score is cumulative across levels.
      • Each pair of cards you remove from the board is worth around 200 points, though it varies depending on how much time it took you to make a move after making the prior move.
      • You also score bonus points based on how much time you have remaining when you beat a level.
      • Your gold savings is dependent upon how quickly you collect buttons in the bonus round.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for players who like Pyramid Solitaire card games.
      • We offer a second version of this game themed after Mayan civilization. The game is named Maya Pyramid Solitaire.
    • The game has no adult themed content.
