Two variants of this fun solitaire card game, fully featured with high-quality retina graphics, in-game instructions and hints and sound effects.
The game layout consists of a 'pyramid' of overlapping cards, with the remainder on a stock pile. The aim of the game is to remove all cards by pairing off cards that total 13. An Ace is worth 1, a Jack 11 and a Queen 12 so that possible pairs are as follows:
Ace + Queen
2 + Jack
3 + 10
4 + 9
5 + 8
6 + 7
K : worth 13 and can be discarded on its own
Double-tap the top card of the stock pile to move it on to the waste pile and hence step through the stock. Cards can be paired off from the pyramid, or from pyramid + stock, pyramid + waste or stock + pyramid. Only completely uncovered cards in the pyramid are available.
Once you have been through the stock and exhausted all possible moves, you are allowed at least one redeal, in which the waste is gathered up and re-dealt on to the stock pile to go through again.
The app contains two versions: '1 redeal' and '2 redeal', where you are allowed to re-deal 1 or 2 times respectively.

Ratings and Reviews
Game is flawed
When you take a card from the stockpile and you don't want to use it, it should go into the discard pile. Sometimes this does not happen. If, for example, you have a 3 in the stockpile and you pull a 10 for the next card, if you can't use that 10 on the board and you discard it, the 3 will sail away with the 10. This should not happen because you may want to deliberately discard the 10 to save it for later. In this game that's not possible.
I absolutely love this game! It would be more comfortable if the deck was on the right side of the screen or if the game allowed players to switch to allow for right and left handed players.
This is nice graphics, responsive although I wish it would show the statistics better. Maybe we can see that in the next model.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
