Gameplay

Fairway Solitaire Blast

  • You will start each hole with a bucket of 30 cards; the number of remaining cards are noted here (J).
  • Select a card on the field that is higher or lower than the card in play (K).
  • Aces can be played on both a 2 and a King Card.
  • Survey all the face up cards; choose the cards that can create the longest string. If faced with multiple choices, select a card that is stacked above another card versus a standalone card.
  • Creating long streaks of cards will trigger a Super Streak (L); receive points, extra cards, and other gifts for your accomplishment. You can view your progress in the meter next to the bucket (M).
  • You will trigger a Flawless Mode when you play 50 cards in a row without missing a playable card (N). Playing in Flawless Mode gives you double the point value of each card played after initiating the mode.
  • Draw a card from the bucket when you are unable to locate any more playable cards.

  • All holes have three strokes; check what stroke you are on here (P).
  • All holes must be completed by clearing all cards from the field; additional goals for the hole are located in the upper left (Q).
  • Stars are awarded based upon your overall score (R). As long as you completed your goals, only one star is necessary to unlock the next hole; you will however need more than 18 stars to unlock the next course.

Helper Cards
