What is Peh Pai™?
From the courts of the Yuan Dynasty to the farms of Szechuan province, Master Li's Peh Pai Challenge has been a popular pastime for centuries thanks to its simplicity and elegance. The goal in the game is to clear the screen from cards by removing them in ascending or descending order.
Master Li's Peh Pai Challenge requires the skill, strategy, and sophistication of popular card games like Speed, Spit, and Tri-Peaks.
How to Play:
When you start a new game, an assortment of cards will appear. Use your mouse to place the cards, in ascending or descending order, on the playing pile that is located on the bottom of the screen. To illustrate, let’s say that the card on the playing pile is a 4: if one of the cards on the screen is a 3 or a 5, you can place it on top of the 4. If none of the cards is a 3 or 5, you must draw a card from the drawing pile. If you are lucky, you will be able to remove your cards with the new card you just placed on the playing pile. If not, you must draw again, and again, and again - until you can remove your cards and advance to the next screen.
Sounds simple, right? Many have thought so before, and all have been amazed at the challenge placed before them. Remember what Master Li once told one of his disciples: "Patience, young one. Restrain your greed. The game of life is not so much in holding a good hand as in playing a poor hand well."
