The goal of TriPeaks is to clear as many boards as possible by tapping face-up cards that are either one above or one below the top card in the waste pile at the bottom of the screen. In TriPeaks, colour and suit do not matter. Aces can be high or low in TriPeaks.

If there are no moves available, tap the deck at the bottom of the screen for a new card. If you exhaust the deck, tap the Deal button to get a brand new board. You can deal a new board twice per game, but if you clear all of the cards on the board, you get a free deal.

Keep starting a new game until you see a board with a good sequence in the face-up cards. Run through the entire deck making a note of what each card is without tapping any face-up cards, and then use undo to reset the deck. That way you know what is coming up. If you don't clear the first board, start a new game. If you have a choice of face-up cards to tap you can use undo to see what each one will reveal, but this will reduce your sequence bonus.

You get about 15,000 points for clearing a board so you will need to clear around 8 boards and get the remainder of the 150,000 in the 3 boards you don't clear. You will also get

For those with Windows 8

You can download Microsoft Solitaire Collection (Win 8) for free and start a game and play until you have a score above 150,000, but don't complete the game. Load the cloud save on the phone and complete the game to get the achievement.

Each new board is random, so just before you clear a board or tap Deal on Windows 8 you can load the cloud save on your phone and see what the next board is like. If you don't like it just quit the game and reload the cloud save to get a different board. You could then transfer this save back to Windows 8 so you can do it again at the end of the next board. Using this method there's really no end to the number of boards you can clear.
