This solitaire uses one deck (52 cards). A pyramid of cards is dealt, consisting of 28 cards in 7 overlapping rows.

The object of the game
To pair up all the cards in the pyramid in pairs of cards that total 13 and remove them to the single discard pile.

The rules
Only uncovered cards in the pyramid and the top cards of the stock and the waste pile are available for play. Select pairs of cards that total 13 using the mouse (for example: 7 and 6, 3 and 10, 2 and Jack, Queen and Ace). Kings are discarded as a single card rather than as a pair. To discards Kings, simply click on them. Aces are worth 1. Jacks are worth 11. Queens are worth 12. Kings are worth 13.

When you have made all the moves initially available, click the stock pile to begin turning over cards.

You have one redeal.

The game is an easier variation of Pyramid. Unlike Pyramid, the Relaxed Pyramid is considered won when all cards from the pyramid are discarded, even with cards left in the stock.
