Chief Eagle Solitaire

Chief Eagle Solitaire
Game Description: Chief Eagle Solitaire is a pyramid solitaire game, which means it is based on the number 13. However, there are two big differences from the traditional pyramid solitaire type of game. The first difference is that the familiar pyramid pattern that you would typically see in most pyramid solitaire games is not used. Instead, Chief Eagle Solitaire uses its own three unique patterns, that are repeated throughout the game. The other key difference is that all 52 cards are dealt face up, and no cards are left in the pack, so you always know the whereabouts of every card. The object, of course, is to make combinations of cards adding up to the number 13, and try to remove all 52 cards from the playing field. If you do, you win and you go on to the next round. If you run out of moves... it is instant game over!

How to Play Chief Eagle Solitaire:
  • Once the game fully loads, you will see the main game screen.
  • If you already know how to play pyramid solitaire you can skip the tutorial. You should also uncheck the 'Show Instructions' box. Then click 'Play'.
  • If you are new to pyramid solitaire, or if you haven't played in a while, it is probably a good idea to either watch the tutorial or at least leave the 'Show Instructions' box checked.
  • At the beginning of each round, all 52 cards will be dealt face up in stacks in overlapping style. There are three distinct patterns that will be repeated, and used in rotation, as you move from round to round.
  • Each card has a numerical value. Kings count as 13, Queens count as 12, and Jacks count as 11. All other cards count as their normal face value. For instance, a six counts as 6, a five counts as 5, and so forth. Aces count as 1.
  • The goal is to make combinations of cards that add up to the number 13.
  • Combinations adding up to 13 may only consist of a single card (a King), or two cards, but never more than two cards.
  • The only cards that may be clicked are the top card of each stack, or the card in the 'Temp Card Store'.
  • The 'Temp Card Store' is a rectangular space located near the lower right corner. It is a place where you may temporiarly store one card. Moving a card to the 'Temp Card Store' gives you flexibility, and can help you win your round!
  • You may move any top card of a stack to the 'Temp Card Store', but only when the 'Temp Card Store' is unoccupied. To move a card to the 'Temp Card Store', first click on the top card of a stack, then click on the space that says 'Temp Card Store'.
  • When you click on cards that combine to make a total of 13, those cards will be removed from the playing field.
  • Use the 'Undo' button to undo your last move. (You may only use the 'Undo' button to go back one move, but never more than one move).
  • Your objective is to remove all 52 cards from the playing field. If you do, you win and go on to the next round of play.
  • If you run out of moves, and there are no more possible combinations of 13 that can be made, Chief Eagle Solitaire will tell you that there are no more moves available and the game is lost.

How to Score in Chief Eagle Solitaire:
  • Score 500 points for each combination that you make adding up to 13.
  • As each round begins, you will see 'Time Bonus' points counting down in the upper left corner. If you successfully complete your round before the 'Time Bonus' gets all the way down to zero, you will earn any 'Time Bonus' points that remain. These 'Time Bonus' points will be added to your score at the end of the round.
  • You will automatically receive huge bonus points for each round you successfully complete!
  • Also score a 'Round Number Bonus' for each round you successfully complete. The 'Round Number Bonus' is the round number multipled by 1000. So for Round 1, the 'Round Number Bonus' would be 1000. For Round 2, it would be 2000. And for Round 3 it would be 3000. (Please note: Because the same three rounds are repeated throughout the game, the 'Round Number Bonus' itself will never exceed 3000. However, after you successfully complete Round 3, your total score will keep accumulating as you move up each round).

Play Chief Eagle Solitaire on Full Screen

Please Note: Before playing Chief Eagle Solitaire in Full Screen mode, you may want to take a moment, or two, to read my review. Then, after playing your game, simply click the back button on your browser to return to this page.

Chief Eagle Solitaire Game Options:
  • You can pause the game by clicking the 'Menu' button located near the lower left corner. Click the 'Resume' button to continue your paused game.
  • The game sounds may be turned on or off by clicking the microphone icon, also located in the lower left corner, just above the 'Menu' button.

Chief Eagle Solitaire Playing Tips:
  • When you move a card to the 'Temp Card Store', you should always have a definite plan in mind on how you will remove this card by pairing it with another card that will add up to 13. This means that you must think at least one move ahead, and sometimes several moves ahead.
  • When you click on a card, watch the bottom of the screen. Chief Eagle Solitaire will tell you what card you need to complete the pair. For instance, if you click on a nine card you will see the message "4 Required To Complete the Pair".
  • If you click on a card that you would like to be the first card in a combination and then change your mind, simply click on a different card to begin a new combination.
  • Learn the combinations that add up to 13. This just takes a little bit of practice. For example: Queen and Ace, Jack and Deuce, Ten and Three, and so forth. Knowing these combinations ahead of time will enable you to work faster, and work more efficiently.
  • When you have a choice of playing two different cards, and one of the cards has other cards beneath it, and the other card does not, always play the card that covers other cards. The reason is obvious. The more cards you have uncovered, the more choices you have, and the more potential plays you can make.
  • Don't hesitate to use the 'Undo' button when it will help you. Yes, each time you use the 'Undo' button you will temporarily lose 500 points. However, you will immediately make up those 500 points with your very next match of 13. So there really is no downside to using the 'Undo' button.
  • You may use the 'Hint' button should you struggle to find a pair of cards that add up to 13. But remember, this will only show you a random move, and it may not be the best one.
  • If you are an experienced pyramid solitaire game player, you should usually be able to take advantage of Round 1 by finishing fast because Round 1 is probably the easiest of the three rounds that are repeated throughtout the entire game. Finishing Round 1 quickly will allow you to rack up big 'Time Bonus' points. Of course, whether you can take advantage of Round 1 depends on what type of deal you receive. If you happen to get a difficult deal for Round 1, Round 1 can be plenty tough. I have to admit that I have lost quite a few times in Round 1 myself. And also keep in mind that your primary objective is always to win a round, regardless of time, so you may continue in the game.
  • For Round 2, there are two large stacks of cards in the middle. Each of these stacks has ten cards. Pay close attention to these. It is to your advantage to shorten these stacks before using up too many other cards, if you can. You don't want to get near the end of this round with either of these stacks too deep, because deep stacks are much harder to deal with. Of course, as with every round, how you play Round 2 will depend on the deal you receive.
  • Do play Chief Eagle Solitaire in full screen mode. The cards will be easier to see, and you will have a lot more fun.

Richard's Rating: 5 out of 5.

Comments: Chief Eagle Solitaire is a superb game of strategy. With its three unique patterns, it is probably even more challenging than Pyramid Solitaire Ancient Egypt, although both games are equally good.
