1 Deck.  Hard  (2%).  Mostly Skill.

 

Object

To pair up all the cards in the deck into pairs of cards.

 

Layout

A Pyramid of 28 cards.  Only uncovered cards are available for play.  Discard pairs of cards of the same rank or of consecutive ranks.  Aces are not consecutive with Kings.  For example, a Four can pair with a Three, Four, or Five.  An Ace pairs with another Ace or a Two.  To discard a pair, drop one card on the other, or right-click on one of the cards.

 

stock (bottom left) -  move cards one at a time to the waste by clicking.  No redeals.

 

waste (next to stock) - The top card is available for play.

 

Notes

Any pair of cards of the same rank or of consecutive ranks can be paired and removed from play.  Be careful when choosing pairs because it is very easy to pair off cards in such a way that you are left with some cards that cannot be paired.
