Pyramid Solitaire is not as popular as similar games, such as Klondike and Spider. It will make you use your brain, but at the same time it allows you to relax and have fun.

The title of the game, i.e. Pyramid, speaks for itself. Thus, there is a deck of 52 cards on the playing field, which form a pyramid. 28 cards are visible for the player as they are placed face up. The remaining cards are in the reserve, which is not visible for the player. They gradually appear on the playing field during the game. You have 2 minutes 30 seconds to solve the task. You may think this time isn`t quite enough, but the skilled player can remove all cards from the field in a few minutes.

How to play?

The principle of the game is the following: you have to remove pairs of cards from the playing field, the amount of which will be 13. For example, when you press on 9 and 4 (no matter what color), they are immediately removed from the field, making the space free. If everything is clear for cards from 2 to 10, then the ace, jack, queen and king often cause difficulties when you try to determine their nominal value. Thus, the ace is one, the jack is 11, the queen is 12, and the king is 13.

The pyramid is disassembled from the bottom row. The player gradually gets to the top of it, and as soon as the last cards are removed, the player wins the game.

On the playing field, there is a special button 'New Deal', through which you can change the cards twice during the game.

Helpful hints

Even experienced players say that it is not so easy to win Pyramid Solitaire because you are given minimum amount of time, i.e. 2,5 minutes. How can you increase the odds to win?

  • Count as quickly as possible, remove everything you see immediately;
  • Remove the kings first, because they are the easiest to see;
  • Begin to remove the cards from the bottom row, gradually moving to the top of the pyramid;
  • Use the button 'New Deal' only in extreme cases; otherwise it will be difficult for you to understand the game in future.

These guidelines will significantly increase your odds to win.
