The objective of Try Dem Perks is to score as many points as possible by playing through several rounds of a Solitaire style game.
Click on the Start Game button to bring up the main menu. From here you can click on "Start" to start the game, or read the rules by clicking on the
"Rules" button. Once you click on "Start", the board chooser is displayed. Click on the > and < arrows to cycle through the different choices
of boards that you can play on. If you click on a name of a board, a picture will appear on the right showing you how many cards will be on the board. The
"Card Value" that is shown on the picture of the board is the base score and the overall difficulty of the board itself. Choose the difficulty level by
clicking on the amount of "Perks" (described below) that you want to have on each board. The higher the difficulty, the more points you will earn because
the "Card Value" will change based on the "Difficulty" that you choose. Once you select a game board and a difficulty, click on the "START"
button to begin playing that board.
Every game is played from a standard deck of 52 cards. Depending on the game board you chose, the cards are dealt out onto the table face down and any card that is not
covered by any other card is flipped over. The remaining cards are spread out face down in the "Draw Pile". The first card of the "Draw Pile" is
turned face up in the "IN PLAY" window and you can now start removing cards from the game board. To remove the FIRST CARD from the game board, you must click
on a card that is either one number higher or one number lower than the card in the "Discard Pile". You can only click on a card that is not covered by any
other card. e.g. You have a 5 in the "IN PLAY" window. This means you can click on a 4 or a 6 to get you started. Once you have removed the FIRST CARD from the
game board, you may then continue to remove cards from the game board that are either one number higher or one number lower than the most recently chosen card. You can
only click on a card that is not covered by any other card. (You can always see the last card you clicked on in the "IN PLAY" window) e.g. Let's say that you
click on a 4 for your FIRST CARD - you can now click on either a 3 or a 5 on the game board. You can continue to click on cards on the game board until you have no cards
that are sequentially next to your card. You can keep clicking higher or lower for maximum score. If you do not have a card in the "IN PLAY" window that you
can use, you must click on a face down card in your "Draw Pile" to keep dealing cards until there is a card in the "IN PLAY" window that you can use
to start removing cards from the game board.
Based on the difficulty you chose, there are a certain number of "Perks" that are hidden under cards on the table. When a Perk is found, it is displayed in the
Perks box on the bottom right of the screen. Black Perks are empty and will show you how many total perks there are left hidden on the board. Perks serve 2 purposes, they
help you clear the board, and they also help you continue "Chains" (described below in Scoring) The Perk is a wild card and can be used at any time. To use a
Perk, click on the colored perk in the Perk Box and the card "IN PLAY" will change into a Perk. Now you can click on any face up card on the board to start
your next chain. The more Perks that are available, the easier the board becomes to clear, but the lower the score is.
When you have cleared the table, or you have no cards left in your "Draw Pile" then the round is over. NOTE – When there are no cards left in the
"Draw Pile" and the message "Give Up?" appears, you do not have to give up until you have used up all of your Perks. When the round is over, your
score for that round is displayed and you are allowed to "Play Again" or "Cash Out". Cashing out will record your score and Slingo Coins.
Each time you clear a board without cashing out, it turns RED in the "Board Chooser". The board chooser will then hold the running total of all of your scores
for every board you have played.
The CARD VALUE for the board (displayed on the board chooser) is how much each card is worth when you remove it from the table. This can be changed based on the
- Expert = Base Score / 1
- Hard = Base Score / 2
- Medium = Base Score / 3
- Easy = Base Score / 4
Bonus Meter - Clicking on cards in succession is called a "CHAIN" and the longer the chain, the higher the "Bonus Meter" will go. The higher the
Bonus Meter, the more points that each card you remove from the table is worth. The Bonus Meter can go up to 5x the current card score. Each card you click in your
"Draw Pile" will lower the Bonus Meter, so it pays to use Perks to keep the Chain going sometimes. If you clear the board, you are also given 500 bonus points.
