How to play

There are 6 levels: Golden Sands, Deserted Beach, Old Deck, Captain’s Chest, Treasure Ship, and Overgrown Path. Each level has a set number of mini-levels that need to be completed to unlock the next main level. In addition, there are points that must be collected throughout the mini-levels. The chart below shows you many points you need to advance to each level. This information is also available in the game on the levels screen.

Pirate’s Solitaire 3 – Levels

You will need to earn 37 points in Golden Sands to advance to Deserted Beach
You will need to earn 38 points in Deserted Beach to advance to Old Deck
You will need to earn 43 points in Old Deck to advance to Captain’s Chest
You will need to earn 36 points in Captain’s Chest to advance to Treasure Ship
You will need to earn 37 points in Treasure Ship to advance to Overgrown Path
Lastly, you will need to earn 38 points in Overgrown Path to complete the game.

After you’ve completed all of the mini-levels in one level you can move to the next level. If you haven’t collected enough points throughout the mini-levels to advance, go back and play some of the mini-levels again to see if you can earn some extra points.

There are two modes, or “packs”, of the game: Junior mode and Sea Wolf mode. You will need to beat the game on Junior first before you can start Sea Wolf. Sea Wolf mode will remain locked until you collect the necessary points in each level of Junior mode to unlock it.
The difference between the two packs is that in Junior mode, any level can be replayed. However in Sea Wolf mode, you must replay the entire pack if you need to replay a level.

Each mini-level is arranged similarly: there is a playing field with cards arranged face-down in a pattern. Only the last card in each row or pile will be flipped face-up. You gain access to the face-down cards by eliminating each of the face-up cards, one at a time. The deck at the bottom center of your screen helps you accomplish your goal. When you click on the top of the deck, two cards flip over. If those cards match any of the cards on your playing field, click each card once to make them disappear.

Click on identical cards within the rows or designs on the playing field to make them disappear. You do not need to rely solely on the deck to provide you with cards for matching.

You can select cards by clicking each one individually or by dragging one card to meet the other.

You only have to match numbers or names, do not pay any attention to the suit or color of your cards.

If the two flipped cards don’t match anything in your playing field, click the top of the deck again to reveal two new cards.

If the two flipped cards match each other, you can match them with each other, however strategically it’s best to keep as many cards in the deck as possible. Your ultimate goal is to uncover the special cards and bonus cards hidden throughout the deck, so the amount of cards left in your deck at the end of the game doesn’t count against you.

Continue matching cards until you have no more moves. At this point, you can either replay the game from the beginning, or continue on to the next mini-level. You can move forward to the next mini-level even if you didn’t collect any special points. You may have to go back and repeat this mini-level again, however, if you don’t collect enough points in the other mini-levels to advance you to the next level.

The multiplier bar is increased when you eliminate cards from the playing field. The higher the multiplier is, the more coins you earn. Spend your coins on valuable bonus items in the shop.

To activate bonus items, click on the bonus and then click on the open card you wish to apply it to. An open card refers to a card that is face up. All of these bonus items can either be won during the game, or purchased in the shop for coins. The shop is the shopping cart icon on the bottom right corner of your game screen.

Joker: Click the joker card, and then click any open card in order to turn that open card into a joker. Jokers are wild cards that can be removed by any card.

Mulligan: This will undo any last action you made in the game, including using your bonus. For example, if you used a joker and didn’t mean to, by clicking on the mulligan you reverse your last action and get your joker bonus card returned to you.

Shuffle: This puts all of the cards back into the deck, shuffles them, and then deals the cards again.

Each mini-level features a different design with varying levels of difficulty.

Earn points by removing special cards and bonus cards scattered throughout the playing field.

Special Cards: These are the cards that are sideways and gold or yellow in color. These cards, when matched and eliminated, count towards your total points goal for advancing to the next level. Remove all of the special cards to earn the maximum amount of points for that mini-level.

Bonus Cards: These are cards that have a gem in the top corner. You can earn rewards such as extra coins or bonus items by eliminating these cards from the playing field. Use your coins to buy valuable bonus items in the shop.

Earn trophies throughout the game for your accomplishments. There are 21 different trophies to unlock, each with different requirements and qualifications. You are notified during the game of your achievement when you unlock a new trophy.

This game gives you the option of selecting your own deck face and card design. Select from many great designs by choosing the options button, the button to the right of the green “play now” button, on the main screen. On the options screen you can also: adjust the sound and music settings, view the credits, select full screen mode, add or remove the game cursor, or access the help screen, which provides basic information on how to play the game.

Tips and Tricks

Try to move as many cards off of the main playing field as possible. It may be tempting to eliminate the two flipped cards from the deck if they are identical, but this will result in less cards in your deck. You may find that you needed those cards for a row later in the game, especially if you flip the deck and start again or shuffle your cards.

Always try to get rid of matching cards in the main playing field. The more you “clean up” your rows, the better chance you have of revealing bonus cards and special cards.

Are you stuck on a level because you can’t find enough points? Visit the shop to buy some bonus items to help you get through difficult mini-levels and find those extra points. If you don’t have enough coins to purchase any of the bonus items, try replaying a few mini-levels over again in order to accumulate enough coins to complete your purchase.

Earned a perfect score? Don’t worry! Any extra points earned in a perfect game will be rolled over to the next mini-level.
