Pyramid Solitaire Game Instructions

In our classic version of Pyramid Solitaire you must try to win as many rounds as you can by getting rid of all the cards in the layout in the top half of the screen. Cards are removed by selecting pairs that when added up come to 13.

All numbered cards have their face value. As you might expect Jacks have a value of 11, Queens = 12, Kings = 13 (and can be removed on their own) and Aces = 1. Removable pairs include Queen and Ace, Jack and 2, 10 and 3, and so on.

The Temp Card Store in the bottom left of the game screen can hold one card. Use this area to open up cards further back in the pyramid. Simply select the card you want to move and then select the Temp Card Store to activate it.

The undo button will undo any single move that you are unhappy with.

You score more points when you play a whole round well and for matching pairs. Each pair of cards matched together is worth 500 points. When you complete a round there are several score bonuses you can pick up!

You can get an additional time bonus that ticks down while you play, a bonus for removing all the pyramid itself, a bonus for removing all the cards including the deck cards, and finally a bonus for how many rounds you have completed so far.
