Solitaire for those who love bridge
There are lots of great solitaire games out there, and we are going to introduce you to 7’s and the Pyramid, two perfect games if you love bridge.
Solitaires are great if you need some time alone, if you need something to do while waiting on the NFL Week 7 odds, or if you just love playing cards.
The solitaire is divided into three areas. The deck can be found in the upper left corner, and the cards from the deck can both be played into the building piles or the base piles. The seven building piles are centrally located and are laid out at the beginning of the solitaire. The first building pile contains one card, the second contains two cards, and so on. The top card in each stack is placed face up, while the rest are placed face down.
Build up the basic piles in suits from ace to king. The building stacks can be built in descending order of alternating colors. When a face-down card becomes free, it is turned over so that the face-down comes up and the card can be played like any other card in solitaire. The cards in the deck can be turned over, so that every third card becomes free and can be played into building stacks or foundation piles. It can be played until no more cards can be moved. Only if all the cards are collected in the four basic piles is the solitaire up.
The solitaire is divided into three areas. The deck can be found in the upper left corner and contains all the cards that are not yet in play. The pyramid contains 28 cards, built up in a pyramid with one card on top, two cards in the row below, and so on until the seven cards at the bottom of the pyramid. The bottom cards in the pyramid are freely available, while the other cards become available as the game progresses.
The cards in the pyramid and in the deck are eliminated by forming pairs that add up to 13 (aces count here as 1). The kings are eliminated from the game on their own. The cards in the deck can be flipped one by one into a new pile of flipped cards. Both the last turned card and the top card in the pile of turned cards is available. Solitaire goes up when all the cards in both the pyramid and the deck have been eliminated as the waste pile.
