Pyramid Solitaire are card games based on the number 13. Each card, from Ace to 10, has a value based on its number. For instance, a six card has a value of 6, a seven card has a value of 7, and so on. Jacks have a value of 11, Queens have a value of 12, and Kings have a value of 13. Typically 28 cards are dealt in the shape of a pyramid in overlapping style. (I presume that is where the name comes from). The goal is to remove all cards from the pyramid by making matches that add up to the number 13. If you do, you will either win the game, or go on to the next level of play, depending on that particular games' rules. Matches may only consist of a single card (a King), or a pair of two cards, but never more than two cards. Most pyramid solitaire games have a clock, and if you are able to clear the pyramid before the clock counts down to zero you will earn bonus points. There are some versions, like Jungle Solitaire, where not only are you required to remove all of the cards from the pyramid, but you must also beat the clock in order to advance to the next level. The most popular pyramid solitaire game, by far, here on Richard's Game Reviews is Pyramid Solitaire Ancient Egypt. Not only is this the most popular card game I have on my site, it is also one of the most popular games on my entire site. If you have ever played pyramid solitaire, you already know how much fun it is. If you haven't, well, what are you waiting for?
