Starting 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.
Use your mouse left click button to select a card & then select another card which sums to 13.
Tap the screen with a finger to select a card & then select its matching card to sum to 13.
Controls & indicators
Across the top the game shows your current level number, cumulative game score, and remaining level time.
The reserves stack is on the left & has a numerical indicator highlighting how much time remains.
As the reserves are laid into the 3 holding spots below the top 3 cards from each stack are shown.
Cards under the top 3 of each stack can’t be seen until playing one or more of the top 3 cards.
The free cell is on the right side of the screen.
Bottom center are buttons for controlling game sound, pausing the game, switching to full screen play, and controlling game music.
In the lower right there is an undo button.
If the button has a wooden color it means you can use it.
If the button is grayed out it means you can’t use it.
You can only undo one move at a time, then you need to make other valid plays to recharge the button.
28 cards are dealt on the tableau using the normal Pyramid Solitaire layout, with cards distributed across 7 levels of the pyramid with the top level having 1 card and each row below the top having 1 more card.
24 cards are dealt to the reserves.
Pair cards which sum to 13.
Q-A, J-2. 10-3, 9-4, 8-5, 7-6.
Kings are removed individually.
You can pair together any combination of cards that are not covered by another card:
2 cards on the pyramid
2 cards in the reserves
a card in the free cell with a card from either other location
a card from the pyramid with a card from the reserves
When you shuffle through the reserves they are dealt 3 at a time into 3 adjacent placements.
The reserves make it easy to see which cards are in each of the 3 piles as you progress through the game.
You only get to shuffle through the reserves once.
This game has a free cell which can be used to temporarily store a card.
Whenever the card in the free cell is paired off with another card you can once again use the free cell.
This game has 10 levels which are unlocked sequentially.
You can’t go back and replay previously beat levels without starting the game over at the first level.
The first stage gives you 6:30 to beat it.
Your play time decreases by 30 seconds for each subsequent level to where you have to beat the final level in 2 minutes.
You beat a level by clearing all cards from the pyramid on the tableau before the timer reaches zero.
You are not required to use all cards from the reserves.
If you shuffle through the reserves and no remaining moves are possible the game shows an End Game button, which allows you to submit your score to the high score list, but then erases your game progress.
Likewise, if the level timer reaches zero it is game over.
If you would like to continue your game do NOT click the End Game button. Instead refresh your web browser to reload the game & when you select the Play button on the welcome screen you will be offered an opportunity to Continue Previous Game.
General Tips & Strategy
Play Kings as soon as you can as it does not adversely impact your ability to make other plays since they are removed individually rather than as part of a set.
When you see a card that is on top of its match try to lay the top card in the free cell and then immediately pair them off.
The tableau cards are all dealt face up, so try to look to see which moves you can make (particularly while using the free cell) in order to make a lot of progress early in the game before you deal too many cards from the reserves.
If a card you need is in a particular reserve column and you do not want to get it buried consider using the cards on top of it whenever possible, or storing it over in the free cell.
Work on all parts of the pyramid at the same time so you have many potential matches until few cards remain. Avoid working down most of one side while still having another leg fully extended.
Your game score is cumulative across levels.
Each card you pair off is worth 5 points, for a maximum base score of 260 points per level.
Each second you have remaining when you beat a level is worth 2 points.
The game is suited for players who like Pyramid Solitaire card games.
The game has no adult themed content.
