# Pyramid Solitaire Rules and Variations

Pyramid Solitaire is a popular and unique solitaire game. Many games can’t be won when playing with all the normal rules, due to bad luck using the original deal. In this guide, you will be shown one rule change that significantly raises the amount of games which can be won by me, improves the part of player ability needed and of course makes this unique solitaire version more interesting.

The goal of the game is to remove the remaining 24 undealt cards that stay in the deck along with all the 28 cards which are dealt in the pyramid layout.

Cards have to be taken out in pairs that add up to 13, but for the King which is often taken out on its own. All number cards are identical to their face value. Picture card worth are as follows:- Aces = 1, Jacks = 11, Queens = 12, Kings = 13. So for example Queen and an Ace may be matched and removed as they add up to 13. Cards can only be removed when they have been fully exposed.

All cards are dealt face up. The first deal resembles this, where the letter X represents a face up card. 2 cards constantly cover cards below them until the base of the deal is reached.

24 undealt cards left in the deck are left by this deal. These cards can only be turned at a time over 3. Each time 3 new cards are turned over they cover the formerly upturned cards. When the player goes through the undealt cards, they are able to join the stacks together (without shuffling) and go through them again. In the conventional rules the player is permitted to go through the undealt cards 3 times.

It way too frequently leaves the player unable to finish the deal due to bad luck, even though the typical game is extremely satisfying. The rule change that significantly enhances the game is to enable the player to take away a single card from either deck cards that are upturned or the pyramid and set it to the side. When they want the player is subsequently enabled to utilize this card. When a card is set to the side, it is going to open up the cards underneath either the solitaire or the upturned deck cards, giving many more tactical choices to the player. Simply one card might be put to the side any given time.
