About Pyramid Solitaire
Pyramid Solitaire is a card game where the player sets a pyramid from 28 cards. The objective is to remove all the cards from the pyramid. The way to remove the cards is by removing a pair of cards that have a value of 13. For example, you can remove the 8-heart card and 5-heart card because the total is 13. If there is no card to remove on the pyramid, you can open one card from the close card deck and find the pair.
How to Play Pyramid Solitaire?
This card game is using the standard 52-card deck. After mixing the cards, you can create a pyramid from the card. Start by opening one card at the top of the pyramid. Open two more cards and put them below the first card and so on, until you see a pyramid. The pyramid is only using 28 cards. Put the rest of the cards close because you still use them. Second, find a pair of cards where the value is 13 from the first row. Third, remove the cards and find other cards with the same value and do it until all the cards are removed. If you can’t find the cards on the pyramid, open the rest of the cards on the closed card deck.
The Rules of Pyramid Solitaire
You need to understand the rule before playing Pyramid Solitaire. The rule is about the value of the cards. The number on the cards is the value of the card itself. So, how about a specific card such as AS, King, Queen, and Jack? The value of AS is 1 whereas the value of Jack is 11 and Queen is 12. The King card has a value of 13. Moreover, if you open the closed card deck and you find a pair of cards with the value of 13, you can also remove it. You can only remove the open cards. If the cards are closed by other cards it means you can’t remove them yet although you find the pair.
The Way to Win in Pyramid Solitaire
You have to remove all the cards whether from the pyramid solitaire card game as well as the closed card deck. If you can do it you win the game. If there is no other pair of cards you can remove, you can restart the game and you lose.
