Description & Instructions

Description: Play a version of Solitaire, but with a twist. Clear the pyramid by matching cards that add up to number 13.
Instructions: This is a very strategic version of Solitaire card game. This game has the objective of eliminating the entire deck by finding pairs of cards which total 13, where Aces are 1, Jacks 11, Queens 12, and Kings 13. This means that Kings do not need to be paired to be removed.

At the start of the game, only the cards in bottom row of the pyramid are available. The other rows in the pyramid become accessible as the cards below them are removed. Only pyramid cards that are completely uncovered can be removed from the table. Cards from the stock pile are turned over one at a time. When a new card is turned over, the last card is moved to the waste pile. Both the top card of the waste pile and the card turned over from the stock pile can be used in making pairs of 13. They can be combined with each other or with an uncovered card from the pyramid to make 13. Two pyramid cards may also be removed if they total 13. It is possible to go through the stock pile 3 times during a game. There are three areas of the screen:

Pyramid The pyramid initially contains 28 cards arranged in seven rows. A card cannot be removed from the pyramid if it is covered by another card. Two cards must be removed to access the cards in the upper rows in the middle of the pyramid, but the cards in the sides of the pyramid only need one removal to become available.

Stock/Waste Pile The stock is located in the upper left corner of the screen with the waste pile below it. Right clicking with your mouse, anywhere on the screen or clicking twice on the stock will move the card on top of the stock to the waste pile and display the next card in the stock. The card on top of the waste pile is available.

Discard Pile The discard pile is located on the right side of the screen below the button panel. Pairs of cards which total 13 (and kings) are moved to this stack. The game is won when all 52 cards are in this pile.


The following actions represent valid moves:

Clicking on a king (rank == 13) will move it to the discard pile.

To remove a pair of cards whose rank totals 13, click on the first card, then the second card and both cards will be moved to the discard pile. (Jacks have a rank of 11, Queens 12).

Right clicking with your mouse anywhere on the screen or clicking twice on the stock will move the card currently on top of the stock to the waste pile. If the stock is empty, the cards in the waste pile will be transferred to the stock and another pass through the cards will be made if a redeal is available.

NOTING Due to an inconsistency in the way Java 1.0 handles overlapping, some older browsers might display the pyramid incorrectly. If the bottom halves of the cards are visible with only the top card seen in its entirety, click on the Options button, then click the checkbox labeled reverse layering and then click OK to layer the cards in the pyramid correctly.
