Once in a while we’re reminded that while Tiki Solitaire TriPeaks is a game, it’s also something that can lead to much more than just fun, points, and Perks. It can, as we see in today’s Player Tribute, bring forth a deep friendship right around the time you need it most.
1. What is your name?
2. What is the name of the person deserving recognition?
3. How do you know Ryrah?
We’ve played together in Tripeaks for over a year, first on a Diamond team, now on a Legend team.
4. Why do you feel she deserves recognition?
She was there for me, helping to keep me sane, through my husband’s lung transplant. She was there as a sounding board while he waited for the transplant, while he spent 2 months in the ICU and I thought I was losing him, and as he returned home and we figured out how to navigate our new life.
5. If you were at an awards show, handing out a “Golden Tiki” for her amazing work as a Solitaire TriPeaks player, what would you say?
“Though I’ve never met you in person, you are one of the best friends I’ve ever had. Thank you for being there for me.”
6. And what joke would you tell?
“One of my favorite things to do is navigate your typos.”
7. If you could have Ryrah come visit you for a day, where would you take her and what would you do?
I’d take her to Cleveland (where my husband had his transplant and I spent the better part of a year). That place will always have a special place in my heart, and I’d like to share it with her. Plus I never made it out to the lake. We could go together 🙂
8. What else do you know about her?
She lives in Australia, which is interesting to me especially the part where we’re nearly at opposite times of the day and opposite seasons of the year. She has a fiancé and a son. Her mum also plays Tripeaks and is in the same Club with us. Her biggest interest is her son and seeing him succeed, currently in soccer.
9. Are you both in the same TriPeaks Club? If so, which one?
10. Any final words you’d like to share with the rest of the Solitaire TriPeaks Community?
I never thought a game could truly be a community, but it has become exactly that for me. I never would’ve had the opportunity to get to know these people without the game. My team and the friendships we’ve built are the reasons I keep playing.
