Cards. They’ve been around for literally centuries. They have long-lasting appeal.
Solitaire. Countless hours have passed while people have entertained themselves by playing solitaire. If boredom was as life-threatening as children proclaim, solitaire would have saved tens, possibly hundreds, of millions of lives. No joke.
TriPeaks. Arguably the most fun Solitaire game of them all.
Solitaire TriPeaks. No doubt about it - *the* most fun TriPeaks version out there. It’s a little bit Golf, it’s a little bit Pyramid, and it’s a whole lot of depth. It’s a deep game, my friend. A very deep game.
Here’s the deal. You’ve got the basics - the game itself. Then you throw in things like unique Hazards and Boosters, Wild Cards, a whole slew of tableau setups, and you’re just skimming the surface. You keep on playing, and then you’ll discover whole new worlds - tons of levels, Clubs, leagues, the ability to chat with your Club Members, a Friend Center, and events that will challenge your mind, and satisfy your soul. We don’t play the hyperbole game. We state the facts.
Oh, and lest we forget, this game is like being on a vacation with a cast of some crazy characters you’ll likely fall in love with pretty quick. There are the two hosts to the game, Tiki and Poi. Tiki’s a Tiki - nobody really knows what the heck he is, and that’s just how it is. And Poi? He’s his adorable dog and sidekick. Together, they’ll make you laugh and keep you inspired to take on the next level. Then there are other characters as you move through the game, like Pele, the Volcano Goddess. Don’t mess with her. And Marina, she’s as sweet as sweet can be. There are penguins, bunnies, monkeys, a parrot and a curmudgeonly old Pirate named Captain Karma.
Also, there’s the art. You won’t believe the art in these levels - it’s like out of this world, my friend. Every level provides an enticing background. Some make you want to take a vacation on the beach. Others make you want to fly in space, or delve the deepest depths of the ocean.
There you have it. Download this one game today, and you won’t be searching the app store for much anymore.
Ads not fair
This game is fun to play. But you don’t get the same amount of free coins as others do. It has nothing to do with the level your on or how much you play. Once a day you get ads that give you coins. These coins are vital to the game. Without them you’re game time is very limited. It cost a lot per game and you can’t make it through many levels without using boosters, which cost 6k in coins per booster. Some levels you need as many as 3 boosters per play. That’s 18k plus what it cost to play the level which is usually 2-3k each. Which brings most levels up to 21k per level. The problem is a lot of people get 25-30 ads daily for coins then the rest get 10 ads per day for coins. Ads pay between 300 to 5000 each. So you can see where you are being cheated real easy. I’ve complained at least 5 or more times about making the ads equal so every one gets a decent chance. They have refused to help me with this. They claim they have no control over ads. No one has a site that they have no control over. I know a ton of people that have complained about this as well. We as players just want the freebies to be fair to all of us that spend our time playing there game. Bottom line they DONT CARE. It’s a shame to because this game is fun it’s just not fair. I assure you that if you encounter a problem it will not be fixed.
You have improved the game, and I’m happy about that.
But the cost of more cards is still DOUBLE of what the game costs to play in the first place, for just five More Cards. So if you risk it & pay for the More Cards, you could still end up a big loser by paying at least 9,000 coins and have very little, even as low as 230 coins left to show for it! I know lots of folks on the fan page have also asked y'all to lower this outrageously high cost of More Cards. And this is after the Big Kahuna made the promise to lower the price, which was only lowered for around 1-2 weeks then was jacked right up to that incomprehensible high price and a good idea that again. And when it is so difficult to win a game w/out needing 1+ sets of More Cards or a Wild Card or two, it seems like the deck is most definitely unfairly stacked against you. (No pun intended!) I do love the game, though, regardless, and your addition of clubs and everything around that inclusion over the past couple of years is original and nothing short of simply inspired. So if you were to reduce the price of More Cards and reverse the betrayal you have imposed upon all your players, including all of us faithful, loyal long-time players, I would give my next review the full five stars. For now, I thank you for inviting me to review your game again.
Agree w/ other Reviews
Love this game and so addicted. I don’t mind spending some money but it’s apparent that if you don’t spend money for awhile and if you don’t spend higher amounts of money $20 or more... you will lose every single game until you’re so frustrated you purchase and it’s all okay again. I tried to make a small purchase and see if it would work several times but it doesn’t. If you spend the higher amounts you’ll will nearly every time or be able to use boosters (earned with teams and for free) to complete them but when you don’t you could be winning a game and be left with one card for days after attempting the same game over fifty times. It’s ridiculous. Even if you freely earn over 100k coins with team games and such it’ll go away quickly. I’ve tried to pay more for more cards to finish one card off and it doesn’t work. I’ve tried to use boosters and it doesn’t. It’ll have a glitch too just before the last card flip. Only during these times but nooooo if you spend higher amounts it doesn’t do it. Rigged. Also agree with other complaints. Not random draws on ads. Sometimes you can watch more ads and other times you can’t. It’s frustrating to literally few they restrict winning and earning if you don’t spend money.
Fun but not fair
I really enjoy this game, however, it’s hard to play when the amount of coins needed to play is more than the amount of coins you get for playing. You need about 9000 coins to play because it’s almost impossible to win without boosters. Not to mention you can go through 7 cards straight and none of them can be used so now you just wasted 9000 coins, you didnt win the level and you dont want to use another 9000 coins to not win again because you want to get as many plays as possible. Just to play is 3000 coins and if you dont win the level you definitely will not make those coins back or even close to it. I have gone a long time without playing because it’s just annoying how quickly you can lose all of your coins when it takes so much time to get them. Every 20 minutes of getting 1000 coins for free isnt enough to keep me intrigued. Even if you have 100,000 coins it’s so easy to literally lose all of that and only win about 2 levels. Plus the levels are quite annoying to win at times. Unfortunate because I do like the game, it’s the only game on my phone that I could *potentially* enjoy.
Pay to Play Rigged Game
I’ve played this game for almost a year straight. While I’ve always known the game was ‘rigged’ (you NEVER win the middle or large amounts after you watch an ad and when looking for tikis, I’ve picked a card off the board, changed my mind and reversed it, then when I eventually replay that card, the tiki is now suddenly under it, or just losing game after game by one card or having 4 or 5 of the exact same card in my draw pile - really, I get 7 cards to play and 5 of them are 8 of hearts?) but I’ve enjoyed playing because the ads were optional and you can go back and play lower levels. However, the new added ads are annoying - you have to watch one after every few plays now, as well as an ad block cluttering up the main screen - and the increased difficulty, even on lower levels is insane. You can’t win a game unless you’re willing to spend money on boosts or extra cards. There are some levels when I haven’t even been able to play a single card! I’ve purchased chests in the past for my teams so I’m happy to pay for in game items, but only because I want to gift my team, not because I can’t go forward without paying to play. It’s just very disappointing.
I remembered why I stopped playing
I deleted this game before then redownloaded after almost a year only to remember why I deleted it in the first place. The first two islands are fun and easy, but once you get to the third island from then on it becomes ridiculously impossible to win; boosters cost 6000 coins which you quickly realize that a lot of levels cannot be won without them. To get 5 more cards costs double-triple the amount that you pay to play the level in the first place, and you can still lose. The deck of cards feels like toddler shuffled them; there have been multiple times where I have two cards left and like 10 cards left in the deck so surely I can find two cards to help win right? NOPE. Also there have a been a lot of times where I barely get to play the level because the deck has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING that I need in order to clear out cards. And those levels where they only give you like 7 cards to clear out like 20 on the board? HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO WIN LOKE THAT. The only way to advance in this game is if you are willing to spend your real life currency on in game purchases because the developers designed the game to where it’s impossible to win without a lot of help.
Unfair advantage given to some players
Some players are able to get up to 90k coins from friends daily while others are allowed only to receive up to 45. Some players have a treasure drop that has 2 spots where you lose 2000 coins & 2 spots where you lose 500. Other players have a treasure drop with only the 2 spots where you lose the 500 and 2 extra spots in which they can get a needed booster. Some players are given more ads to watch for free coins than others. Some players are given events to play in which you earn rewards that others are not. This is a competitive game where teams compete against each other for prizes. It is not fun to compete against other players who are given an advantage from the game. Developers please do not reply that by contacting player services that something can be done. I have contacted them several times and the result is a reply that pretty much says too bad. The game had also promised events where top 3 scorers in a club would have a chance to compete for prizes. That never happened. They also promised events in which you could chose friends to complete events with. This also never happened. This game used to keep adding new features to the game that made it fun to play. Now it just gets harder every week to just win a game and all the new features seem to be a way to get players to lose their coins faster and need to make a purchase in order to play. I have played this game daily for years and am close to putting it away and moving on.
Love It & Hate It
Game play can be fun and challenging. The graphics and the different game levels and quests are fun, and so is being in a club. But, the developers have made this game way too hard in the way that you have to spend real money or use all of your earned coins to win a game. Which really causes you to not want to continue playing. Which is sad because the graphics are great and game play could be fun, but in several of the games you may have to burn ropes and blow up bombs on having a limited number of given cards to use. This is on several of there boards where you have 2 challenges on a limited number of stacked cards for you to use to complete the board. They do this expecting you to pay the outrages price for additional cards or for you to purchase with real money the wild cards. If they would only make this game a little more easier on some of the levels with maybe 1 obstacle to at least get to the next level or give you more cards in your stack to use to at least give you a chance to win. I have been playing for awhile and you would be surprised at how many times you have a double challenge to go through on a level and the cards they give you don’t even match any of the cards on the game, so you have used your coins for nothing. I really hope the developers will consider this and revamp the game a little. If they do and it gets better I will definitely raise my star rating for them.
The creators are sucking all of the fun out of the game
I know this review will fall on deaf ears, but you don’t deserve my five stars so I’m changing my review after years of game play and hundreds if not thousands of dollars spent on the game. The second you find a level that pays out well with decent points, they will go in and change the game. It doesn’t matter if you tell anyone, if they see you doing too well on a level, they will change the level. Why? Why even make the level to start with? They don’t even wait for an update to change levels, they did it during the day this time! And don’t even get me started on the shrine they’ve ruined. A month since it the new shrine started and I’ve gotten ONE wild. That’s insane. But of course they did because the old shrine was an easy way to get wilds and boosters which might actually help you. But they’d rather force the stupid scavenger hunt down our throats that NO ONE wants to play in order for us to get boosters. I know it’s now all about money and greed to the people that are ruining the fun for everyone, because there are people who play without paying but you’re also driving away those of us that actually spend money on the game! It’s sad for me that I’m quitting because I’m a leader on a top 5 legend team and most are like family now, but I’m at a point where the game makes me mad more than happy. So sorry GSN, but you’re not getting a cent more from me.
This game is obviously rigged. Along with your 4.5 star rating. I read through the comments and you see nothing but 1 and 2 start ratings and comments are not good but clearly their not in this for honesty LoL!! My review and rating has never even shown up in the review! I have caught so many mistakes and cheats. It’s clearly designed to make you lose 9 out of 10 times you play. I’ve never know a deck of 52 cards to have 8 or more of the same cards. In fact in real life that would be called stacking the deck!! Maybe they don’t think we are paying attention but it’s not that hard to notice when 7 of the same card show up in a row. I’d rather play with a real deck of cards so at least when you lose you know you really lost. Also I have watched ad after ad to win coins from the 3 treasure chests and I ALWAYS get the lowest amount!! One particular day I picked the same treasure chest every time on purpose just to see if it was “random” as they claim but every time after picking the same treasure chest over and over in a row the amount was never the highest or even second highest it was ALWAYS the lowest every time! Now how is that possible if it’s randomly shuffled? I would have gotten the highest treasure chest eventually but I sure didn’t!! What’s sad is after reading reviews people are spending real money on here! That’s just sad they are being robbed blindly.
ADDICTIVE - Then EXPENSIVE - Then DECEPTIVE REWARDS- Then CARDS NOT SHUFFLED
This game is so much fun -At First! And it begins as such a thrill. And as you continue, the rewards increase. And the cost of more coins and extra coin/booster card packages seem a small expense at the least. But take my word and check your bank charges because they add up very quickly. What’s both deceptive and confusing is that the rewards increase as well. So while you think you’re getting wonderful monetary rewards, and bonuses, you are meanwhile also purchasing these amazing and costly so-called discounted packages of coins and booster cards, etc. Also when the game begins it seems as though the cards are well shuffled, however as it continues, you will find you have four of the same cards - For example four kings or four eights are turned up all at the same time and that problem continues to increase in occurrence as you continue to play this game of Solitaire with a deck of cards that have clearly not been shuffled. If you’ve got a lot of money to spend on a game and don’t mind playing Solitaire with a poorly shuffled deck then this is your game. The makers of this game are brilliant at enticing the player and making the rewards seem worthy of the cost of the game. This is far from the truth. Buyer beware! Hopefully someday the makers will shuffle their decks. And offer decent costs and discounts for their game.
Boycotting spending money with GSN
This is my response to their new policy that won’t let club helpers get any rewards for helping other teams - I will still play the game but no more money for you! I cannot tell you how disappointed I am in GSN right now. I think you missed the big picture. By going out to help other teams, I needed resources and for the last 3 months, I personally have spent $160 dollars on double gift day (DGD). All because I enjoyed the teamwork and the new friends. I was planning to make future DGD purchases. Until I started helping teams, I had no need to pay for anything on the game. I would occasionally get a DGD box for my team - maybe 5 in 3 years of play. That ends as of today, unless you change it back to allow me to get benefits from helping another team. I am regretting having encouraged my teammates to start hopping and that they also bought DGD boxes to allow them to freely help. I am going to encourage everyone I know to not spend another penny on the game. I’m in a large FB group and have gotten quite a following by doing “Tip of the day” to explain the game to people from leadership and player perspective. You can bet that tomorrow’s tip will an explanation on boycotting any further GSN purchases. I will be copying this post to several groups that I’m in as well as sending a ticket.
Money hungry developers
This game is very addicting I will say so I’ll give 3 stars for that. However, unless you don’t mind spending cash on coins and boosters it can be very aggravating. First, it costs you coins to play each level and as you complete a island, the cost of coins increase. If you’re not constantly winning back to back, you lose a lot of coins in which you will not be able to play until you watch enough ads, collect enough free tokens and daily tokens to get your coins back up to where you have enough to enter the level! I must say, the developers are probably getting very rich off of a lot of gamers who get too addicted, but I won’t be paying a dime on this game especially since I just found a free version! Developers do better, instead of being so money hungry how about trying to make the audience happy and it will definitely attract more gamers if it was not so costly! UPDATE: I have taken two stars off after reading the reviews to this game. If every single review is saying the exact same thing and the developers are not even attempting to adjust this to meet their customers needs, they don’t deserve the players. Hopefully, you guys will do better which I highly doubt since I seen you promised to lower prices and did not deliver!
2020 changes ruined a great game!
For no apparent reason other than PURE GREED, they suddenly changed the jackpot slots so that it’s near impossible to get helper cards — AND they added two slots that steal 2,000 coins from your bank. They also changed the number of friends that can help you with coins from 5 to 3 - again stealing coins from us. Since coins and helper cards are critical to being able to play, I will no longer be playing this game. I’m pretty sure I was in the top 2% of users this past year - I loved this game and have been on the same club since the very beginning. All the other members feel the same way. Finally, they claim the rewards on ads are random. I kept a tally for week of ads. There are three cards to choose from. If it were random, you would get the lowest prize 33% of the time, the middle prize 33% of the time and the highest prize 33% of the time. My results: lowest prize 86% of the time, middle prize 5% of the time, highest prize 9% of the time. So the developer’s statement is clearly a lie. Again, all the other club members have said they experience exactly the same thing. I’m thinking of filing a complaint now with the FTC over that issue. They just want to force you to spend money to be able to play.
