Pyramid solitaire card game
The goal of Pyramid solitaire is to eliminate the entire deck by finding
pairs of cards which total thirteen (Kings are eliminated singly). 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. The cards which are not in the pyramid are dealt one at a time.
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. Rightclicking 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.
