Your goal is to clear pyramid of cards by creating combinations of 2 cards that add up to 13.

upper left and upper right (if there are cards in those places). The remaining 24 cards are put in the draw pile.

each pile and the exposed cards in the pyramid may be used to make matches. The remaining cards are placed to the side

Queens – 12. Kings count as 13 and can be removed on their own. All other cards count at their face value.
