Pyramid 2 SoliTaire! Rules:

Goal

Remove all cards from the layout by matching pairs of cards totalling 13.

The Deal

Using one deck, 28 cards are dealt to the pyramid. The rest of the cards are dealt to the eight Reserves. Two Reserves with 4 cards, two Reserves with 3 cards, two Reserves with 2 cards, and two Reserves with 1 card. The Kings are removed from play.

Layout Cards

Cards available for pairing are completely uncovered cards in the Pyramid or Reserve cards.

In Pyramid 2, cards are paired up when their ranks total 13. For example, a 6 and a 7 make up a pair and may be removed. Also 5 and 8, 4 and 9, 3 and 10, 2 and J, and A and Q.

Kings total 13 on their own and so are automatically removed from the game.

Cards that are paired up are removed from play.

Reserves

There are 8 Reserves to the sides of the Pyramid each holding between 1 and 4 cards in them. The topmost card of a Reserve is available to pair up with pyramid cards or other available Reserve cards.

Cards may not be placed into a Reserve.
