Tiki Solitaire TriPeaks is a must-have game for fans of solitaire card games – and for newcomers! I was pleasantly surprised by this game, both by the visuals, the game itself, to the pockets of gambling. I have acquired everything you need to know to pick up the game and progress at a good rate in my experimental play-through. So let’s start with the tips and tricks that will help you ace the game.
Tip #1 – Accept the sways of Lady Luck
If you truly want to enjoy this delight, you have accepted the inevitable factor of luck involved. It is a card game, after all. There will be some levels that seem rigged from the start, some decks that seem appropriate to dish out all four Queens at once. There may be good games and bad games, but there will be no game that can’t be mitigated and struggled through as long as you pay attention to these tips and pointers.
Tip #2 – Collect free coins
Before you enter a game, be it your first or tenth, always make sure you have collected all the free coins the game throws at you. Coins are the lifeblood of the game, required for playing the levels at increasing rates. There are many ways to enjoy the benefits of free stuff (who doesn’t love free stuff?), such as the daily log-in rewards that increase the more you claim, as well as a standard daily bonus. You can also reap 1,000 coins every 20 minutes, all the more reason to stay active. If you don’t mind the ads, you can watch videos for coins, too.
Although not exactly free, once you advance enough you will unlock events and quests, which reward you for simply playing, nothing more. So when you are and aren’t playing, the coins will be coming your way, so keep on top of claiming them to continue playing without a hitch.
Tip #3 – Gamble responsibly
As aforementioned, there is a surprising gambling element to Tiki Solitaire TriPeaks. Namely, there is a jackpot feature. An enticing, 2,500 coin drain tempts you with a 1,000,000 coin jackpot. For purely experimental purposes (I promise), I indulged in the jackpot, to see if it was any different from its real-life counterparts. It is not. However, it certainly is no scam, as there is a pedestal with the most recent winner of the jackpot for you to get jealous of.
It goes without saying that gambling, in any situation, is to be done moderately, conservatively, or just not at all. This game is no exception. If you are to progress the game, don’t sink your coins into any of the empty promises of a jackpot, else you won’t be able to play the game.
Tip #4 – Never mind the fancy shapes, just what they unlock
So, after collecting all of your coins and avoiding the jackpot’s glare, you have entered a game. Each level is displayed differently, with spiraling patterns or strange, blocky arrangements. Each level is certainly a feast for the eyes, but don’t get intimidated by the convoluted contraptions, and just focus on what is in front of you. Most of the cards you need to match with are hidden, locked behind their predecessors.
All that should concern you are the face-up cards, and their dependents (the cards they unlock). Pay no mind to the flashy arrangements and you’ll have a clear-cut, simple system to work with. Once you have mentally sorted the face-up cards and how many they’ll unlock upon matchmaking, you can prioritize the cards that’ll unlock the most. One thing I found myself doing was matching with whichever card was easiest for my finger to reach if there were more than one contestant for my card. Don’t do this. Instead, focus on the cards that will present a plethora of cards to work with, and your job will become so much easier.
Tip #5 – Don’t fret for the stars
Each level can award three stars, each giving you more coins. One is awarded for completing the level, another for matching cards in quick succession, and another for doing it under a time limit adjusted for each level. Although tempting, and seemingly easy to achieve, don’t rush to accomplish these goals. Your focus is to advance and hone your skills, as you can return later to cash in on the missed out stars.
If you focus too much on trying to complete the level quickly or match your cards too fast, you may open yourself up for failure. Annoyingly, you don’t receive coins from stars on failed levels, just a pitiful consolation sum. If you don’t want to lose coins and get frustrated, you would allow yourself to just complete the level. If you are following the previous tip, then you will have a calculated route perfect for your card streak star. And if you are especially efficient, then the timed star will fall into place.
The worst thing that could happen is you pinning yourself into a corner of your house of cards, never to complete the level with the cards you’ve left yourself with. So, don’t rush to claim all of the stars.
Tip #6 – Try not to bargain with a chance
A smaller, but no less vital tip, do not bargain with a chance. Or at least with chance, you can control it. When choosing your route, don’t rely on the hidden cards revealing the ones you want for a huge streak, and try not to fall into the trap of buying an additional five cards if you fall just short in a level. The chances of you getting that one card you need in a deck of 52 are uncanny, and not worth your coins. Just try again, and I hope you get lucky.
Tip #7- Grind levels for more coin
If you find yourself short of coins despite vehemently claiming all the free goodies you can get your hands on, then try levels previously completed. In your reruns, you can aim for the stars for additional coins. When I was playing the later stages of the first island, I found level 7 to be a potential grinding level after trying most of the earlier levels out. You can do the same, replaying levels until you find one that you’re comfortable playing a few times to rack up more money.
Just be careful, or you’ll truly run out of coins after failing your contingencies. And who would want to wait 20 mins for another injection? I personally found Tiki Solitaire TriPeaks highly entertaining, and a great puzzle game to pass the time. You can download this game for Android on Play Store and for iOS on App Store.
