00. Kahuna Rewards Sunset
We won’t be able to extend Luaus so that they are active beyond the Kahuna sunset date of 06/07/18, but we’ll work to accommodate in some fashion players who have already purchased Luaus that extend beyond the sunset date above.
The Kahuna program (including Luaus) will be removed from the game while we make improvements. As of our most recent upgrade, you will no longer be able to purchase Luaus, but you will be able to continue to enjoy the benefits of the Program until 06/07/18.
On 06/07/18, we will sunset the Kahuna Program entirely, and it will no longer be available while we work on improvements to the program.
Note: We won’t be able to extend Luaus so that they are active beyond the Kahuna sunset date of 06/07/18, but we’ll work to accommodate in some fashion players who have already purchased Luaus that extend beyond the sunset date above.
We can’t commit that we’ll be able to preserve anyone’s status (for instance, the new program may take a very different shape), but we will strive to make a re-introduction as fair as possible.
We will continue to introduce new programs all year, and we’ll be working behind the scenes – including talking to some players – to improve the Program so that we may introduce a new version in the future.
We’re sorry you’re unhappy with this change. We believe that there is so much more to the game for you than the Kahuna Program. Please recognize that the Tripeaks Terms of Service are very clear that by playing you agree that we we may test, modify and remove programs as we work to improve the game experience overall. The nature of this kind of game (and this kind of program) is that the structure and parameters can change over time, which is why our Terms of Service are clear that these programs may be modified.
We hope you’ve enjoyed the benefits you’ve received at your level of the Kahuna Program, including reduced purchase cost, bonus cards and benefits, and other extras. All players participating in the Kahuna Program who have made purchases have received some extra benefits from those purchases. We’ll work to make sure players are satisfied with the play experience,
We’re sorry, we’re not able to provide refunds to players. We’ll make every reasonable effort to make accommodations in some fashion to satisfy players who have purchased Luaus that extend beyond the sunset date above.
As you know, we continually develop and test new programs that we hope will improve the gameplay experience. Sometimes these programs don’t work out as we hoped, and we need to make changes. In this case, we need to make some substantial changes to the program, and we believe it would not be fair to continue making this program available to a small group of players but not others, so we’re removing the program while we re-work it.
01. Solitaire TriPeaks Basics
A Volcano Card clears 5 random cards at a time. Volcano Cards will pop up randomly while playing, or you can purchase them in-game like Wild cards.
The Blue Bonus Card gives you even MORE Coins when you clear it, adding to your total win!
A Red Star booster doubles the number of Red Stars you earn on levels you haven’t played that week, and works for 2 hours.
Get RSB’s through Quest Rewards, in Chests and from Poi’s Treasure, or by purchasing them before or during some levels.
Hazards make a Level just a little more difficult. Sometimes more.
You’ll need to play the active card on a Hazard to make the card under the Hazard available – this makes it slower going.
Clever players use Boosters to get past Hazards and win more levels faster.
Boosters give you a short-cut past Hazards!
Here is what each Booster does:
– Streak Doubler: Lets you to achieve the Streak star twice as fast
– More Time: Adds 30 seconds to your timer to help earn the time Star
– Bomb Defuser: Removes all Bombs as they appear before they explode and end your round
– Trap Torch: Burns away all Trap nets you see woven around Cards as they appear
– Shark Hook: Remove any Sharks blocking your way to more Cards.
– Magic Eye: Highlights any available moves
– Defroster: Melts any Ice hazards in your way
If you see this message, it means either:
– you’ve seen all the ads you can today
– we don’t have any ads to show you at the moment
The number of ads you can see per day may vary.
Your progress is automatically saved on the device you’re playing on – you don’t have to do anything special to save progress.
At this time, the only way to save progress across devices is by signing in using your Facebook account. You can only carry over your progress the first time you sign in wth Facebook. From that point on, all your Facebook devices will share the same saved progress.
The Hold Card slot lets you “hold” a card to swap in at any time in place of the current “active” card, so it becomes the new active card.
For example, if you draw a King but are unable to use it right now, you can place the King in the Hold Card slot for later use when a Queen or Ace is revealed.
Or, save a Golden Tiki or Wild Card in the Hold Card slot to use it later.
Coins are used to play Solitaire TriPeaks games. You can also use Coins to Undo a move, buy More Cards when the deck runs out, or purchase Boosters to improve your chances of winning a level.
Winning a game in Solitaire TriPeaks means completely clearing the game’s tableau.
As you clear the Cards, your score goes up. Scoring is simply how many Coins you’ve won at the end of each level. In addition, you can earn bonuses as you play:
- Clearing consecutive cards for a Streak Bonus
- Clearing ALL the cards to win the level for a Win Bonus
- Winning the level before the timer counts down for a Timer Bonus
Your total Coins at the end of the level are the Coins earned during the game.
The Wild Card will allow you to play any card left on the tableau. Wild Cards can be purchased or won. The number of available Wild Cards is depicted in the lower right hand corner of the Wild Card.
Free Plays are exactly what they sound like. If you win or buy a Free Play ticket, you’ll see it on top of the Coin Entry fee when you start a level – you won’t have to pay any Coins to play that level.
Stuck on a TriPeaks level? Use a Wild Card or a Booster to help you complete it!
Wild Cards let you play any card from the tableau, so you can start a streak or maybe even complete a level.
Boosters can augment your winnings, or overcome all Hazards in a level with a single play. Find out what each Booster does by tapping “Menu” in the game and then tapping on “Guide.”
You earn Stars just by playing levels. Yellow Stars are permanent and show how well you’ve done on each level. Red Stars reset each week, and contribute to your success on the individual Red Star Leaderboard (not the Club Leaderboard). Win BOTH a Red and Yellow Star for EACH of these achievements on a level:
- Earn a Completion Star (first star, as seen below) by winning the level:
- Earn a Time Star (second star, as seen below) by winning the level before the star timer runs out.
- Earn a Streak Star (third star, as seen below) by winning the level and filling up the streak meter to 100% during that game.
If you only win 1 or 2 Yellow Stars on any level, you can replay it to try to win all 3 Yellow Stars. And of course, replay as many levels as you can each week to climb the Red Star Leaderboard! You earn Stars just by playing levels. Yellow Stars are permanent and show how well you’ve done on each level. Red Stars reset each week, and contribute to your success on the individual Red Star Leaderboard (not the Club Leaderboard).

Poi will move forward if it takes too long catch him. Keep an eye out – some days Poi will give you TWICE the treasure If you have completed all current levels, Poi will not be available until the next set of levels are released.
Clubs are a way you can work together with other players to win extra prizes that make the game more fun and rewarding! These prizes are weekly Perks that the Club wins together (see “What is a Perk?” for more on Perks).
Clubs can also compete weekly in the Club Leaderboards for opportunities to win even MORE rewards!
Once you’ve reached level 21, you can join a Club. Once you’ve reached level 31, you may create a Club.
If you’re not a member of a Club, tapping the Club button will reveal the following menu:
You can find a specific Club by searching for its name. Or you can see what the top Clubs are and try to join one. Or the game will provide a random suggestion for a Club you qualify for and can join if you’d like! You may also create a Club yourself.
You can chat with your Club Members from almost anywhere in the game. Simple press the chat tab in the middle of the right edge of the screen:
Scroll down to see earlier messages:
To send your own message to the Club, tap the “Enter text…” field, type your message with the keyboard, and press the “Done” or “Enter” button:
As a Club Leader (formerly Organizer), you set the direction for your Club. Aside from creating the Club name and Club motto, you can decide if the Club is public or private, the progress/level requirements to join and choose your Club’s Co-Leaders. It’s important that you communicate your Club expectations to the rest of your Club so they know what to expect. You can recruit members, and you can also remove members who may not be actively participating from the Club.
If you would rather be a regular member of a Club you’ve already created, you also have the option of promoting someone else!
From the member view, (“My Club” tab in the Clubhouse), you can tap on any member’s name or information to get a pop-up box of options:
Use the “Promote” button to make that member the new Leader, or the “Remove” button to eject a member from your Club:
Note that Club Points from ejected members do NOT count toward the Club Leaderboard at the end of the week!
Enter the Club Island View by Clicking on the “Club” button in the lower right corner. Then Click on the Clubhouse to open up the member list. At the top is a red button that says “Leave”. Press it. Enjoy your newfound freedom!
The random contents of the Chest will total the amount displayed in Coins. You will not necessarily receive all of that in Coins but the total value of all the items in the Chest will equal the range displayed.
Note: A Coin card counts towards the card count for that box.
Club Gifts are available for purchase in the Shop next to the Clubhouse. Here, you may claim or purchase gifts for your Club. In the Shop, you will find a variety of gift boxes ranging from small to large. Each box contains a number of Boosters, Wilds, Free Plays and Coins. When you purchase one, every member of your Club receives one.
Gems are like Coins, but instead of spending them on levels, you can spend Gems in the updated Club Shop on unique rewards. Gems can be found randomly in Reward Chests and by ranking in our upcoming Club Contests!
Every week Clubs will have a chance to earn Gems in the new Club Contests. The Contests will coincide with our weekly Perks event. Ranking requirements and Gem rewards will change each week.
Co-Leaders have a special set of abilities – not as much as Leaders, but more than general Club members:
– Promote other Club Members to Co-Leader
– Approve requests to Join
– Change Club settings
– Remove (“kick”) Club Members
“Request to Join” messages are now in a new Club Inbox located in the Clubhouse screen where the Leader and Co-Leaders can view and manage all the requests.
Club Quests are ways to earn rewards with your Club mates. They require a minimum number of members to complete a set of tasks within a given time, and reward the whole Club with prizes if completed!
Now Leaders and Co-Leaders will be able to set their Club’s perk order based on their desired strategy.
- Move and drop Perks in the order you see fit
- All Club Members will start their way at the top of the new, reordered list, and work their way down automatically as Perks are completed.
- Perk order will be carried over from event to event.
- Perks that arrive during the middle of an event will be placed at the bottom of the Perk order allowing Leaders / Co-Leaders to strategize whether or not their Club should go for it.
- Members retain their option to manually move themselves from perk to perk.
06. Earning Perks
Perks are weekly rewards you and your Club can work together to earn. Every week the Perks reset to a new set of Rewards, like Free Play tickets, bonus Coins, or even Wild cards.
Any Club Points you and other Club members earn will contribute to a Perk’s progress bar. Once the progress bar is filled, all Club members will be awarded the Perks AND a reward Chest at the end of that event.
You can choose which Perk to work toward by tapping the Help button by that Perk. Each Park has a different difficulty level labeled below the Perk number. The harder a Perk is to complete, the better the rewards and the better the Chest.
The Volcano is the nemesis of Perk Benefits! The Volcano meter slowly fills over time – once it reaches the top it erupts, which temporarily makes earned Perks inactive and blocks new progress on current Perks.
You can help cool the Volcano by playing special levels marked with a Tribute (see “What is a Tribute” below). Keep earning Tributes to keep the Volcano from filling, so you can keep progressing on Perks!
Tributes cool the Volcano, which keeps it from erupting so your Perks stay active longer or, if it’s already erupted, appease it by resetting the meter.
Tributes are on specially marked levels which you can easily find by pressing the FIND button underneath the Volcano meter.
Tribute levels have 1 Tribute hidden beneath a card on the playfield, but if you clear the entire playfield you turn that Tribute into a Golden Tribute worth 5!
Earn as many as possible to keep the Volcano from erupting and your Club from losing your Perks. An erupted Volcano will not keep you from receiving your weekly Chests.
Every set of Perks is a part of a timed event.
This timer represents how much time your Club has to earn the available Perks and Chests. Be sure to choose the Perks you work towards wisely, as the varying difficulty affect how much time it takes to complete it!
Completed Perks are awarded to everyone in the Club, including members that may have not contributed. However, the Organizer has the ability to remove any players they feel are not contributing effectively to the Club!
07. Weekly Leaderboard
You’ll now compete against a Leaderboard of up to 100 other similar Tripeaks players in the weekly Leaderboard, where earning Red Stars to move up and win rewards each week. Players are grouped into Leagues based on their play. Beginning players will be in lower Leagues, while more advanced players will compete in higher Leagues. Higher Leagues will have bigger prizes, but everyone on the Leaderboard will earn some level of reward.
Red Stars reset each week, and contribute to your success on the individual Red Star Leaderboard (not the Club Leaderboard).
Win a Red Star each week for EACH of these achievements on any level:
- Earn a Completion Star by winning the level.
- Earn a Time Star by winning the level before the star timer runs out.
- Earn a Streak Star by winning the level and filling up the streak meter to 100% during that game.
The number of Red Stars you earn by the end of each weekly Red Star Leaderboard event determines where you land within your league.
Place high enough in your current League and you’ll be promoted to a higher League, where you can win better rewards! But be careful, if you place too low in your current League, you’ll be demoted to a lower League and the prizes won’t be quite as good.
The player who got that amount of Red Stars first will receive the higher ranking. If you want to pass a player with the same amount of Red Stars as you, you will need to beat their score.
08. Events & Quests
Quests are fun goals you can complete just by playing the game to earn additional rewards. There are currently 3 kinds of quests:
– Daily Quests, which are always there for you to win
– Event Quests, which are special events on certain days
– Club Quests, which you complete by working with Club mates

If you’re looking for a tougher challenge, try out the expert levels packed away in the suitcase in the lower right on the main map and island screens.

10. Treasure Shrine
The Treasure Shrine is based on an ancient game of chance. Drop a Medallion to win Coins, prizes or another Medallion to try again!
Use a Medallion to play the Treasure Shrine: Drop 1 Medallion for 1 play. See how many Medallions you have available on the right side of the Treasure Shrine. If you don’t currently have any, you can buy 1 Medallion for 2500 Coins.
The Treasure Shrine is a game of chance. It’s possible for the Medallion to bounce on or around the bucket. It can even slide behind the bucket, so watch carefully!
Unlucky bounces can happy on any slot – not just the jackpot – and are part of the physics built into the game.
