About Tripeaks Solitaire
Tripeaks Solitaire is an appealing, yet no less challenging, single-player card game. Its name is derived from the design of the playing cards in the Tableau. Tripeaks, also known as triple peaks, are created when these are arranged so that they form three pyramids of overlapping cards.
The objective of this Solitaire game, quite similar to previous Solitaire games, is to remove every card from the tableau. Players now have to form mixed sequences alternating between cards one number higher and/or lower than the preceding one in order to create full sequences in order and by suit.
How to play the Tripeaks Solitaire game?
At the beginning of the game, you must take one card from the stockpile and place it face-up on the discard pile. The card in question will act as the starting basis to begin dismantling the pyramids.
It must be paired with a facing-forward pyramid card that is either one point higher or lower than it. Your basic card, for instance, can be paired with either a 4 or a 6 if it is a 5. In a game of Tripeaks Solitaire, the color and the suits have no bearing and only the figures are important.
The final card you add to the discard pile stays on top of it, facing forward, and serves as the base for the next pair of cards. You are actually intended to develop sequences by moving higher or lower with each move, rather than merely making pairs.
The sequence comes to an end if there is no card available on the tableau to be placed over the most recent card discarded. When this occurs, you can remove one or more cards from the stock pile and set them in place of the card on the discard pile. To turn a card in this online game of Tripeaks Solitaire, all you have to do is click on the stock pile.
Finally, when all movements have been made and the stock pile has been depleted but some cards are still on the tableau, the game will be over.
