The Ace of Spades 3

Game Description: The Ace of Spades 3 is another fun version of tripeaks solitaire. The really cool thing about this version is that there are 45 different arrangements of cards, called boards. Some boards are easy and some are hard, so you never know what is coming next. This variety makes things interesting and keeps you on your toes. One other cool feature is the Ace of Spades card itself. You never know if, or when, it is going to show up and help you.

How to Play The Ace of Spades 3:

  • Once the game fully loads, click the 'continue' button directly under the game title.
  • On the next screen you see, click either 'Play Random Boards' or 'Choose a Starting Board.'
  • Choosing a Starting Board allows you to select your favorite board from among 45 different starting boards. (Use the slider button at the right side, to scroll down and see them all). After you play your starting board in round 1, the game will switch to random boards for any succeeding rounds. (The day I tested the Ace of Spades 3, I noticed something peculiar. When I begin the game with 'Choose a Starting Board', each time I got to round 3 the board cards would not display and I had to quit my game. I don't know if this is an actual glitch in the game, or if this was simply an oddity for that particular day. If this should happen to you, try starting a new game with 'Play Random Boards.' Doing that solved the problem for me).
  • Each round begins with a deal of 30 cards face down in the pack, 1 card face up immediately to the right of the pack (the discard pile) and various other cards, some face up and some face down, (the board).
  • The rank of cards is the usual rank of A, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, and K.
  • You may play any face up card from the board, to the discard pile, if it is either one card higher, or one card lower in rank than the top card of the discard pile. For instance, if the discard pile shows a 7, any 6 or 8 may be played.
  • To play a card, you simply click on it.
  • Suits do not matter in tripeaks solitaire.
  • In tripeaks solitaire, Kings may be played on Aces, and Aces may be played on Kings. (This means that if the discard pile shows an Ace, any king or any two may be played. Similarly, if the discard pile shows a king, any ace or any queen may be played).
  • Try to build big sequences both up and down such as: 3, 2, A, K, Q, J, 10, J, Q, K, A, 2, 3, 4, 5, 4, 3 and so on. The order can be ascending, descending or both.
  • When you run out of moves from the board, click the pack. This will automatically overturn the top card from the pack and place that card face up on the discard pile and play begins again.
  • The bigger the sequence, the higher you’ll score. Example: 100, 200, 300, 400...
  • Score extra points, or earn extra cards for the pack, by playing the Ace of Spades card.
  • Receive 1000 bonus points for each card that remains in the pack when you successfully complete a round.
  • Your goal is to move all cards from the board to the discard pile before the pack runs out of cards. (Hint: You can always tell how many cards remain in the pack, because The Ace of Spades 3 will show you by displaying that number on the pack itself).
  • If you are able to move all of the cards from the board, to the discard pile, you win the round and the game continues.
  • The game ends whenever you fail to move all of the board cards to the discard pile.

The Ace of Spades 3 Playing Tips:
  • Face down cards on the board will be revealed when all cards on top of them are played. If you have a choice of cards to play, always play the card that will result in other face down cards being revealed. For instance, if you have two threes available to play and one of the threes has a hidden face down card underneath it and the other three has no card underneath it, select the one that has the card underneath it. The more cards you can get turned over the better.
  • Play the Ace of Spades when you have the chance to do so. Not only will this give you lots of extra points, sometimes you may receive bonus cards that go to the pack... giving you more chances to make moves and win the round.
  • As with all tripeaks solitarie games, it is the order in which you play your cards that will determine your success. As you gain experience, this will become more apparent.
  • The Ace of Spades 3 has no time limits. So take your time, and be thorough. Make as many good moves as you possibly can, and try not to miss any obvious ones.
