Classic Solitaire: Pyramid

New Version of a Classic Solitaire: Pyramid.
The object of the game is to remove pairs of cards that add up to 13 from an arrangement of cards - a pyramid of 28 cards.
To set up the pyramid, the game deal one card face up at the top of the playing area, then two cards beneath and partially covering it, then three beneath them, and so on till you have dealt out a row of seven cards for a total of 28 cards dealt.
The remaining 24 cards are placed to the side face down. This is the Stock.
To play, pairs of exposed cards can be removed to the Foundation if their values total 13. Thus, Kings can be removed immediately to the Foundation. Cards must not be covered. Thus when an Three rests on a Ten, that Ten can not be removed.
You may draw cards from the Stock one at a time and match it with any exposed card. if no match is made the drawn Stock card is still discarded into the Foundation.
Once the Stock is exhausted and /or no more pairs can be made, the game ends.
There are three reserve cells that the player can use to place cards from the stock (but not from the Pyramid) for later use.
Game is won when all cards from the pyramid are moved to the foundation; the game can still be won with cards left in the stock.
