Tri Peaks Solitaire Card Game Rules

Tri-Peaks Solitaire Card Game is a combination of Golf Solitaire and Egyptian Pyramid solitaire. It’s another fast paced game like Golf but a little less mechanical with slightly more thought and vision required in order to release the most productive cards. Now, let’s check Tri Peaks solitaire rules.

Card Layout

The game is played with a single pack of 52 playing cards. The cards are dealt to form a tableau consisting of three overlapping peaks in the arrangement shown below. A single card is then dealt face up from the remaining stock to start a waste pile that is built on during the game.

Objective

The object of TriPeaks Solitaire is to transfer all the cards from the tableau to the waste pile, uncovering cards further up the peaks, making them available for play. You win the game when you’ve removed all the cards from the tableau to the waste pile, demolishing the three peaks.

Tri-Peaks Rules

All building is carried out on the single waste pile. Any completely uncovered card in the tableau may be moved to the waste pile if it follows either an ascending or descending sequence regardless of suit. So in the above example, either the 6, the 6 or the 8 may be built on the 7. Sequences may turn the corner with Kings building on Aces and Aces building on Kings. When no more cards can be transferred from the tableau to the waste pile, a card from the stock is dealt to the waste pile and building resumes. When the stock is exhausted, and no more building can occur, then the game is over. You’ll receive a bonus every time you completely demolish one of the three peaks and you’ll also receive a bonus for each card that remains in the tableau when you win the game, along with another bonus depending on how fast you completed the game. Don’t forget, you can double click or right click on a card to send it flying to the waste pile.

Beside classic Tri Peaks Solitaire, there is other version, that’s Tri Peaks Strict.

The Deal Each player is dealt 6 cards face down from the deck. The remainder of the cards are placed face down, and the top card is turned up to start the discard pile beside it. Players arrange their 6 cards in 2 rows of 3 in front of them and turn 2 of these cards face up. The remaining cards stay face down and cannot be looked at.

The Play The object is for players to have the lowest value of the cards in front of them by either swapping them for lesser value cards or by pairing them up with cards of equal rank.

Beginning with the player to the dealer’s left, players take turns drawing single cards from either the stock or discard piles. The drawn card may either be swapped for one of that player’s 6 cards, or discarded. If the card is swapped for one of the face down cards, the card swapped in remains face up. The round ends when all of a player’s cards are face-up.

A game is nine “holes” (deals), and the player with the lowest total score is the winner.

Scoring Each ace counts 1 point. Each 2 counts minus 2 points. Each numeral card from 3 to 10 scores face value. Each jack or queen scores 10 points. Each king scores zero points. A pair of equal cards in the same column scores zero points for the column (even if the equal cards are 2s).
