Pyramid Rules

Object of the Game

The object of the game is to eliminate cards from the board by pairing cards whose values sum to 13. Note that Kings may be removed without being paired with another card, because Kings have value of 13 by themselves.

Card values are as follows:

  • Non-Facecards are worth their face value
  • Aces are worth 1
  • Jacks are worth 11
  • Queens are worth 12
  • Kings are worth 13

Therefore you must pair Jacks with Two's and Queens with Aces to remove them. Aces are always low (i.e. value of 1).

Game Play

To start the game, click on 2 pyramid cards that sum to 13, or a draw card and a pyramid card that sum to 13. If no such cards are available, clicking on the draw card a second time moves it to the Waste pile. Waste pile cards may also be paired with any other card on the board and removed if the sum of the 2 cards equals 13. Clicking a non-King card once highlights the card; clicking a highlighted card again will unhighlight it or move it to the Waste if it is in the Draw. Clicking a King once removes it.

Click "New Game" any time to start a new game.

Game sound volume is controled by your phone or tablet's volume keys.

Scoring

Removing 2 cards that sum to 13 increases your score by 25 points, and removing a King by itself is worth 15 points. Clearing an entire pyramid in less than 2 minutes and 30 seconds is worth 250 bonus points.

The following is a complete summary of the bonus points awarded:

  • 250 bonus points for clearing the pyramid in 2:30 or less
