How to Play Tri Peaks Solitaire
Playing Penguin Solitaire is one of those solitaire games that have
the ability to captivate your interest and also to keep yourself amused
for an extended period of time. It is very much alike with FreeCell
solitaire, and draws from here but has a few differences that make it
more interesting. Before learning the basics on how to play Penguin
Solitaire, here are a few different things about FreeCell and Penguin
When one plays penguin solitaire he has to be aware of the fact that blank columns are to be filled only with a specific card, while when playing FreeCell solitaire this blank column can be filled with anything.
In FreeCell the sequences are built in descending alternating color. In the case of penguin solitaire sequences are build in descending same-suit cards. While Penguin solitaire gives you free hand to move sequences disregarding their length but of the same suit, FreeCell solitaire allows you to move your sequences depending on how many free cells and columns are available.
When one plays FreeCell solitaire cards are moved to the foundation beginning with the Ace. In penguin solitaire the base rank doesn't have to be the Ace but can be any rank. FreeCell solitaire has 4 free cells, while penguin solitaire has seven.
How to deal when playing penguin solitaire:
- The game starts with the dealing of three cards to the foundations. These cards are all the same rank, but not necessarily Aces. The card remaining at the base will be at the top of the first stack. Free cells are eight, all empty. Seven stacks are to be found, each one of them seven cards with their face up.
How to play penguin solitaire:
- The playing of the cards is to the foundation, wrapping through the King. The sequence is built in descending rank as long as they are of the same suit. The game allows multiple cards in sequence to be moved in one move. A column that is empty is only to be filled witha card 1 less than the base rank.
The strategy of penguin solitaire:
- In terms of difficulty penguin solitaire is easier in comparison with FreeCell solitaire. However there are deals from time to time that prove themselves to be very hard to be played.
When encountering a deal like that, one has to pay special attention and should take into consideration the following tips:
- Play any card to the base of the foundation and do it as fast and soon as you can. If there is a card that can be moved to the foundation, one should do just so, since holding onto it brings no strategic advantage.
- Think from the very start how to play the game. It may be the case when emptying the first column could actually pay or it may not be that case.
- Consider the alternatives well before moving a card. Just because a card can be moved doesn't mean that it has to be moved.
- Work on keeping as many possible free cells.
