Pyramid Solitaire Rules

Pyramid Solitaire is a simple 1 player card game that can be played online or offline. It has a simple set of rules so anyone can understand and play it in a matter of minutes. Usually the game is played with a standard 52 card deck, but different variations are available.

The game starts with a part of the cards randomly arranged up-faced in a pyramidal structure. The rest of the cards are left faced down in a draw pile. The goal of the game is to remove all the cards of the pyramid.

Once the game starts the player can move the cards according to a few simple rules:

  • The cards from the draw pile can be revealed once at a time. Once revealed it will be faced up in another waste pile covering the previous cards taken from the draw pile.
  • The player can remove the any 2 revealed card(the visible one from the waste pile) which sums 13.
  • The cards in the pyramid can be removed only if they are not overlapped by other cards, so practically when the game starts only the base of the pyramid can be used.
  • In some variants of the game there is available a temporary stage area where only one card of the removable cards can be stored.

The game ends when all the pyramid cards are removed.

    What is the face value for kings, queens, jacks and aces?? I would think they would be worth 10 and aces would be worth 11. Yet if I say have a 3 and a jack it does not remove the cards. 3+10 does – 13 the last I checked.
