The Pyramid Solitaire software whisks you away to ancient Egypt, where you're tasked with solving an intriguing puzzle laid out by the Pharaoh himself. The main goal of the game is to clear all the cards from the pyramid by pairing them in a way that their combined values sum up to 13, regardless of their suit.

The card hierarchy is as follows: Jacks are worth 11 points, Queens are worth 12 points, Kings are 13 points, Aces are worth 1 point, and the rest of the cards have values equivalent to their numeric representation. For example, a 7 is worth 7 points. At the beginning of the game, 28 cards are dealt face up in 7 rows forming a pyramid. A face-up card is placed in the discard pile beneath the pyramid, and the remaining face-down cards are positioned to the left of this pile, forming the draw pile.

  • Remove pairs of cards that add up to 13 points.
  • Possibility to remove the King on its own since it's worth 13 points.
  • The pyramid cards cannot be removed if other cards are placed on top of them.
  • A discard pile and a draw pile are provided to aid the gameplay.

To play, you can click to remove a pair of cards from the pyramid or the discard pile that add up to 13 points. For instance, you can remove an Ace and a Queen, or a 10 and a 3, while a King can be removed by itself. It's important to note that the pyramid cards can't be removed if there are other cards placed on top of them. When no more moves are possible, you can click on the draw pile to get a new card.
