How to Play

Quickly build a house of cards on each level. Ensure each wall is valued equal to or less than any wall it stands upon. Take advantage of pairs valued at 20 or 21 for extra support.

  • Starting the Game
    • Select the Play button on the game’s welcome screen.
    • The welcome screen also has buttons for gameplay help information, 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 social sharing & game developer info buttons.
  • Game Controls
    • Desktop
      • Use your mouse left click button to select cards to pair up and place them onto the board to build the walls.
      • Once walls have been built use lower value cards to create the horizontal floors between walls.
    • Touchscreen devices
      • Tap the screen with one of your fingers to use it like a mouse.
    • Controls & indicators
      • Across the top of the screen it shows your score, level number, and remaining level time.
      • In the upper right corner there are buttons to control game music, control game sound, switch to full screen mode, or pause the game.
      • The lower left corner of the game contains the draw stack, which shows how many cards remain in it.
  • Game Play
    • Basics
      • You are dealt 5 cards at a time & can only play from the 5 cards shown at the bottom center of the screen.
      • Building walls
        • Select two cards to pair them off.
          • You can match cards with the same numerical value or the same suit to create a triangle as part of the wall.
          • If you pair the wrong cards you can click on them to deselect them.
          • Once you are happy with a pair you can drag it to one of the lines above to have it become part of the pyramid.
        • Wall values must be equal to or lower than the values of the walls underneath it, or else the wall will collapse.
          • If the cards above a set are valued more highly than a set then that segment of the card house will come crashing down.
          • The only exceptions to this rule are if the other set of cards is valued at 20 or 21.
        • There are 2 special card values
          • 20: cards turn green and can be placed atop any other wall piece even the pieces it is on have a lower value
          • 21: cards turn green and can be placed atop any other wall pieces even the pieces it is on have a lower value. In addition, a 21 reinforces the wall pieces directly underneath it, effectively making those act as though they are valued at 21.
      • Building floors
        • Any card can be played as part of the floor.
        • Floor pieces are laid one at a time.
    • Levels
      • This game has 3 levels with a 5 minute timer on each.
      • On each level you must build the pyramid one level taller. The first level is 4 tiers high, the second is 5 tiers high and the final level is 6 tiers high.
    • Strategy
      • Try to avoid putting low value walls in the bottom center.
      • If you must have a low value pair low on the wall try to place it on either edge and reinforce it with a 20 or a 21 above it.
      • Use your floor laying part of the game to get rid of cards which do not easily match with the others in your hand.
    • Scoring
      • Your game score is cumulative across levels.
      • You score 1 point for each second you have remaining on the level timer at the end of each level.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for people of all ages who like playing card house building games.
    • The game has no adult themed content.
