TriPeaks Solitaire is a popular solitaire game, combining many elements from Pyramid Solitaire, and Golf Solitaire.
Unlike many other solitaire games, TriPeaks Solitaire makes it fun to do the same deal many times over, because you can keep playing trying to maximize your score.
*AIM OF THE GAME
-The aim is to move all the cards to the waste, and maximize your score.
*PREPARING THE GAME
-The initial layout for Tripeaks is 3 pyramids. These Pyramids overlap, and are 4 rows high, using up a total of 28 cards.
-There is 1 card turned up in the waste pile. There are 23 cards in the talon, which can be dealt at any time.
-Cards can be moved to the waste pile, if they are 1 less than, or 1 more than the rank of the current card on the waste pile.
-For example, if an 8 is at the top of the waste pile, then a 7 or a 9 can be moved onto it. Unlike Golf Solitaire, when playing Tri Peak Solitaire, cards wrap around from King to Ace. This means an Ace can be moved onto a King, and a King can be moved onto an Ace.
-The biggest scores in this game come from making long sequences(Streak). So sometimes it makes sense NOT to play all the cards that you can play, because they may be useful to form an even longer sequence later on.
-To find these long sequences, it often pays to look carefully at the initial tableau, and look for long sequences, and which cards are in the way. Then play to remove the cards in the way first.
-The first card you move from a Pyramid gives you 10 points.
-The second card you move from a Pyramid gives you another 20 points.
-The third card you move from a Pyramid gives you another 30 points.
-As soon as you deal a card from the Talon, the sequence goes back to 10 point again.
Enjoy Playing Solitaire Tripeaks!!!
