ALL CARD GAMES
A simple one player game where players connect cards and try to
clear the three pyramids.
HOW TO PLAY TRI PEAKS
Create three pyramids of cards face down. Each pyramid starts with one card and has six cards in total. Add ten cards face up that connect the pyramids. Turn over a card from the deck to form a pile, e.g. J.
HOW TO WIN
Clear all the cards to win the game. Use the scoring system to count points and keep a running total.
Select a face up card that is one higher or lower than the card on the pile and place it on the top of the pile e.g. 10 . Repeat this process with one card higher or lower than the top card of the pile e.g. 9.
CLIMBING THE PYRAMIDS
When a face down card from the pyramid is exposed on both sides, it can be turned over e.g. 3♠️. If there are no cards that can be played then another card is turned over from the deck. This can be repeated until a card can be played onto the pile.
The A can be played as a high or low card, e.g. after playing a 2 or K there is the option to play an A.
Continue playing until all cards from the pyramid have been collected or the deck is empty.
– Score fifteen points for each pyramid cleared
– Thirty points extra for clearing all pyramids
– Lose ten points for each card remaining
