Would like to update my review. I have learned that this game is once you get into the higher levels impossible to win without spending about 15,000 tokens. So either get ready to spend a lot of money or just let it turn off going to be able to before you play and I mean a ton. And when you notice that it's taking me a coin set a given them to you in the game is very bad about it then expect them to give them back to you because I have sent emails to you in the last week and a half and have yet to get a response even though it says you need a 48 to 72 hours downtime I don't what clock they use but my 72 hours was over four days ago . So I emailed them day before yesterday asking them how long is your 72 hours and they have not responded so I guess I won't be getting those took back but I've noticed a lot that when I exit exam my tokens will go down tremendously and this is after I have won that round . This game definitely issues had a couple of updates at least one that I know of and I'm not sure if that's when all this started you're not I just know that I'm through with the ignoring the emails and stealing my tokens . don't waste your money on this game or your time! If I don't hear back by Monday I'm deleting this game I can't afford it.
Love It & Hate It
Game play can be fun and challenging. The graphics and the different game levels and quests are fun, and so is being in a club. But, the developers have made this game way too hard in the way that you have to spend real money or use all of your earned coins to win a game. Which really causes you to not want to continue playing. Which is sad because the graphics are great and game play could be fun, but in several of the games you may have to burn ropes and blow up bombs on having a limited number of given cards to use. This is on several of there boards where you have 2 challenges on a limited number of stacked cards for you to use to complete the board. They do this expecting you to pay the outrages price for additional cards or for you to purchase with real money the wild cards. If they would only make this game a little more easier on some of the levels with maybe 1 obstacle to at least get to the next level or give you more cards in your stack to use to at least give you a chance to win. I have been playing for awhile and you would be surprised at how many times you have a double challenge to go through on a level and the cards they give you don’t even match any of the cards on the game, so you have used your coins for nothing. I really hope the developers will consider this and revamp the game a little. If they do and it gets better I will definitely raise my star rating for them.
You have improved the game, and I’m happy about that.
But the cost of more cards is still DOUBLE of what the game costs to play in the first place, for just five More Cards. So if you risk it & pay for the More Cards, you could still end up a big loser by paying at least 9,000 coins and have very little, even as low as 230 coins left to show for it! I know lots of folks on the fan page have also asked y'all to lower this outrageously high cost of More Cards. And this is after the Big Kahuna made the promise to lower the price, which was only lowered for around 1-2 weeks then was jacked right up to that incomprehensible high price and a good idea that again. And when it is so difficult to win a game w/out needing 1+ sets of More Cards or a Wild Card or two, it seems like the deck is most definitely unfairly stacked against you. (No pun intended!)
I do love the game, though, regardless, and your addition of clubs and everything around that inclusion over the past couple of years is original and nothing short of simply inspired. So if you were to reduce the price of More Cards and reverse the betrayal you have imposed upon all your players, including all of us faithful, loyal long-time players, I would give my next review the full five stars.
For now, I thank you for inviting me to review your game again.
Game cheats! NOT worth downloading!
Update: You can now earn the same number of coins when using free play as when you pay. The game will still cheat but that has also improved. Also the developers have increased the number of ways you can earn coins plus they offer more ways to earn free plays, wild cards, and boosters. I'm more impressed with the game and enjoy playing it more now.
The game CAN be fun...when it doesn't cheat! It doesn't give you the cards you need to be able to play. One game, I went through the entire deck of cards and was unable to play ANYTHING until the very LAST card so I lost the game. If you pay the crazy amount of coins it requires to get 5 more cards to try to finish the game 9 times out of 10 you won't have any usable cards even if you only have one more card left to play in order to complete the game! The higher the level the less likely the game is to give you the cards you need and DON'T waste your coins on the extra cards!
Why is it that when I have a free play I don't earn even close to the same number of coins as when I have to pay to play???? Even when I win the level I don't earn very many coins if I used a free play! Like I said, this game CHEATS!
Good game but some bogus moves
I like this game, it is very fun to play, however; they make it very difficult to win some of the games without using up all your coins or paying for Extra to finish the game to Move on . Also, I usually watch the videos to get the extra coins every day. After you watch the video you choose from three cards to see how many coins you. I have probably watched 75 or more videos for free coins, and I have never won the biggest pot of coins. After they reveal your free coins, the other two cards flip over to show what the other coins were. I have never not one time when the highest coins. Never. I believe this game is designed to not give you the highest coins. Also I don’t really like all of the extra Side games and clubs and all that other stuff that’s with it. I find confusing and I’m not sure what to do with all of them so I usually just stick with the original game. Overall, I like the game. I just don’t like that they make it impossible for you to win the highest coins or to get past some of the screens levels without using all of your coins or paying for extras
Good game but...
The thing about this game is it’s a great game the graphics are great the game is super fun but my main problem is the game cheats and it costs like $15,000 when you get to the higher levels and it makes me not want to play as much. And when I watch videos to get free coins and it does that card thing every time I pick a card it’s the very least amount there could be. Like it’s not just me I can do it like 10 times in a row and I’ll do the same card and i keep getting low amount but one of the other cards has a huge amount so the one time I go to the card that has always had a large amount has the smallest amount and the card I’ve been choosing has the biggest amount. I think that’s the game cheating and it’s not me at first I thought it was but this happens every time. I love the game but I haven’t been playing it lately because the game cheats and it costs so much to play a level and sometimes you have to play it over and over and that’s paying real money or coins from the game. It’s just annoying but it is a fun game😕
Rating Tri-Peaks by GSN
By unhappy with GSN
I really do like this game. But every time an update is required it’s nothing but problems. GSN is horrible at returning any response when there is a problem not receiving items that players buy or win. They don’t respond or refund at all they think players are liars and just ignore the tickets. GSN doesn’t realize when they do refunds to us players it goes right back into the game and it keeps players playing which eventually we purchase more items to keep playing. I think as well as all the players is that GSN should give back to us and make the levels winnable. They FORCE players to buy items to pass all level la which is WRONG!! Greed never wins in the end!! The game has so many glitches and boots you from the game and you lose all the items that were in play. And when you send a ticket GSN ignores it. That’s also wrong. I could go on for days, but I’m going to stop. Make it right GSN!! Read your Facebook Page it’s says it all. More complaints then good complements. You should make some positive changes! Players are leaving by the hundreds. That’s sad!! As it once was a top game!!
Fun but costly
The game is fun and I can easily sit and play it on and off all day but I think if they used a hearts system for access to the levels instead of paying coins (like candy crush or most other games) then it would be a lot more fun. Then the coins could be used for the upgrades or to get more cards.
I do agree with what others have said about not getting enough cards. I have encountered several levels so far (and I’m on about level 50) that you don’t get enough cards in your deck to actually complete the level. I’ve had levels where I literally had 10 cards (and yes I counted) but I had to clear 20 plus trap cards. Levels like that are impossible to beat without either spending crazy amounts of money for more cards or using excessive amounts of wild cards or tiki volcano cards, both of which cost real money.
It seems that the game is set up simply to make money and not for the enjoyment of the players. You can do both. It has potential but needs major improvements.
Fixes don’t work
Tripeaks solitaire was a good game. I say was because GSN and their updates have caused more glitches, error messages, and game failures than they fixed! They want you to join their Facebook page to give you free coin but, the links don’t work so what does GSN games do, they send you a new link That still does not work!
This game is geared to CHEATERS and rewards cheaters!! Multiple players can sign on with 1 account on multiple devices. A team has 25 player accounts but 50 people (or more) can play for that team. This game has “Team Quests” that are timed and the team works toward for prizes but in middle of quests, the quests will end and reset. So all the coin you have spent, all the time you have spent to complete the quests, WASTED!! Try and contact game IT & you get a message that they are aware of the problem and working on it.
Game has A FB page but if you post anything negative (and honest) about the game, they remove it and block you. Guess what GSN Games, I’ve got a FB account, this site and many others were you can’t remove the review!!
Tri-Peaks is a good card game but get the game from another app!!
Fun, but very expensive
Love the actual game (TriPeaks), but will be deleting this app. The developers have made it impossible to continue play without continually buying token packs or other aides to help you win. A game generally costs 3000 tokens and if you add any aides to help you win, they will cost you 6000 tokens EACH aide. If you win the game, earning 3 stars, your token payout will be around 5,000 +/- - YOU NEVER EARN THE AMOUNT OF COINS BACK!! Another example is the quests where you could earn aides or tokens, but the quests are like “play 200” games and you will win 1 WILD card (600,000 tokens later). And the final blow— if you want to earn FREE tokens you can watch ads and earn 1000 tokens (not enough to play one game unless you play the beginner levels again) -OR- you can BEG friends on Facebook and you earn 3000.
Everything costs money, but this game will happily take ALL of your money just to play. To the DEVELOPERS = please make it more reasonably matched up - if every aspect of the game costs money at least give me bigger payouts so it balances the costs more.
B-, C+ game (edit D game based on rigged)
Fun game for a short time. The luck is frustrating at times. Games like this make me feel it’s rigged to make you spend real money. Which I WON’T!
*Edited review: The game is definitely rigged to make you spend money. This is EXTREMELY EVIDENT when watching the add videos for coins. After watching the videos you get to choose one of three cards to see how many coins you get. For 20 straight chances i always picked the left most side, the game then reveals what you “could have won”. The h lowest was always mine with the second highest total in the middle and then the Highest total far right. EVERY TIME. THIS PROVES THE GAME IS RIGGED AND NOT BASED IN TRUE CHANCE. The percentage, if truly random to have three cards in a row, while always picking the left most cards, and NEVER GETTING the highest one in the left or middle, well.... enough said. Seeing this gives immediate Untrust to their game program and why it try’s to make you spend coins to win.
As I said, fun for a bit, but don’t give these thieves your money.
I cannot get help!
Until about June 22 (today is July 2) things were quite enjoyable with this game. However, since the above date, I have not been receiving my coins from friends. I complained 4 or 5 times and was awarded the missing coins the following day in each case, so gameplay was not interrupted. Since then, I have only been allowed to collect random amounts of coins, and not the full amount. I have written in each day as I had when this issue first occurred but am getting no response from the help desk. I saved 15 email responses from the game folks, but when I click on them, they say page no longer exists! Also, tonight when I attempted to write for help getting the 75,000 coins sent me by friends, that page said it no longer exists. I hate to quit the game as I enjoy my club and so many depend on my support for coins, as I do theirs. But I refuse to spend another penny until this issue gets resolved. Please help me.
AMAZING!! But... (I DONT SPEND $$)
I love this game. I 100% do. But I do find it really unfair and unfortunate at times. I will go through a deck without have any cards matching, or only have 2 or 3. Out of 5 tiki games I will win 2 sometimes. Sometimes more but average 2. Getting past levels is TOUGH. it takes a while and getting extra cards cost more than the entry...WHY?! it should cost maybe half. People would spend coins on that, and maybe more since the cost is less, than they do on these coin costs of 5000+ for extra cards. To be honest, I don’t spend a single cent on the game. Not worth it.
I got lucky. I’m in a club that is consistently ranked top 15 and many members do spend money on coins, gifts, boosters, etc. if I didn’t have those members helping, I would probably still be stuck in the 5th or 6th island.
Don’t. Spend. Money. Deals aren’t worth it. Don’t feed an addiction like that.
Rip-off game with bugs
After the first couple levels, game is designed to make you pay to win, buying special cards and add-ons. Then they designed this game with well-timed bugs that manage to freeze up portions of the game after purchasing items. In any given week of 4-6 purchases you're losing real money when the game locks up immediately after purchase and you lose the money and whatever card you were buying. Tech support is a joke- they give you generic excuses of why 800 things all EXCEPT the game are probably causing your issues, then instead of actually reimbursing you either the lost money or item you were trying to purchase, they throw you a 1000 free fake coins and pat you on the head and that's it. I've even taken screenshots of the frozen screens to attach and show them, and get no better results. There are plenty of other time-sucking games out there that are less costly and less of a hassle. If I could give it no stars, that's where it'd be. Your time and money are worth more than this.
By Puppy Dot
I’ve been playing this game for about a year now. When I first started playing everything worked great but for the last month or so this game freezes up have to shut down or delete and reinstall, then it works for a little while and pretty soon it freezes up or quests won’t show and I’m back to deleting etc. About ready to delete and not reinstall. In fact just deleted and reinstalled went back in hopes of playing still locked out. Why don’t you fix this grams!!
I know you said up to 96 hours to work on fixes, but it is getting real old having to delete and reinstall. I have deleted everything I can to hopefully help this game. There are a lot of complaints from others on the Facebook website as well so it’s not just me!! If this isn’t better within the week I will delete for good. Sad because I enjoy my team and the game.
Severe Loading issues
I absolutely love this game. I have played for at least two years now with only minor issues here and there. However, over the last two days I have had nothing but issue after issue. I can barely get the game to load and when I do most of the stuff within the app only halfway loads and I end up getting error messages or timed out messages. I have sent numerous emails to solitaire Tripeaks support and they all keep telling me the same thing, uninstall the app, force close the app etc. Every single other thing on my phone works perfectly, I have checked my Internet provider everything is fine I have also checked my cell phone provider and they tell me everything is fine as well so it has to be this app That is having issues. Really need to get it fixed ASAP though, I very much enjoy this game I am a coleader in my group and I have invested money into this game as well too. I would hate to not get this fixed and have to delete the game.
Fun, but too glitchy
By mrs nussbaum
Doesn't crash much on brand new iPhone 7+ & iPad, but I don't see the new levels advertised in the past couple updates, neither do my teammates. Also, everyone's playing a slightly different game, with different rewards and features- some players get 6k every 20 minutes, others get 1,200, without explanation. The gam isn’t even the same on my phone & iPad. The keyboard doesn’t fully work for messaging in the latest update. They lowered the reward amounts. It's annoying. The higher levels only cost 3k now instead of 5k, but are mostly impossible to win without spending at least 15k. On the plus side, tech support is very responsive, the developers are active on facebook, and the team feature is great. I'd just really like the updates to actually work, and to know how to get all the features. Old review: This used to be really fun, but now it's just glitchy and crashes constantly.
love this game, but HATE the update
i have been playing this game for a while, hours each day. literally spent all of my down time playing because it's so addicting. i've even spent money just to play for a little while longer. what i loved most about the game was that in 20 minutes i could always count on being able to play another few games at least. i was always he top player in my club each week. i loved seeing how far i got each week. NOW they updated it and instead of the 3,000+ coins every 20 minutes, we get 1150. WHAT AM I SUPPOSE TO DO WITH 1150 COINS? keep replaying all of the low levels? wait a whole hour to collect 3000 just to maybe lose anyways?! this update cut my playing time into maybe 30 minutes a day because it's such a waste to get on here. i can't win the quests and i am useless to my club. if they don't change it back soon, i'm probably just going to stop playing it all together.
Be Aware-Very Expensive!
I really enjoyed this game when I first started, as I found it entertaining & challenging. The daily quests & rewards seemed to make it more appealing to play, until you begin to realize how quickly the difficulty increases & the amount of coins it takes to actually win a round. As others have noted, the randomness of the cards is stacked against the player much like a casino game, making the odds of turning over cards you need unlikely, which in turn means spending more coins to get a few more cards, which often are not cards you can play, which in turn costs more coins. You get the picture. The levels cost more money to play as you move up and if you join a club, it will cost you real cash to keep your coin stash high enough to try and win the volcano/totem levels for the club prizes. Any boosts/helpers cost real cash and add up quickly. I really thought I was going to enjoy this game for the long-run, but it’s just way too expensive.
Fun but very disappointed
Let me start off by saying I think this game is a very entertaining. But what bothers me is the fact that when I run out of coins, I have to watch an ad video in order to redeem a chance to pick 1 of 3 rewards. I don’t mind doing that part, but what bothered me was that I always managed to pick the lowest reward... EVERY TIME! Doesn’t matter which one you pick. Which pattern, blah, blah. Every time, it’s always the lowest reward possible. IMO this is a ploy to get you perturbed by how many ads you must watch to redeem very little reward, which tempts people to spend actual money on the credits. I get it. It’s how y’all make a living off of free gaming. But al least let us win something other then the smallest reward. You’ll keep the people playing long enough to become fond enough to actually feel like it’s worth spending $$$ on it. Not just feeling like a bully took our lunch money right from the get-go.
Glitchy and Stressful
This is not a stress free game by any stretch of the imagination. You have to join a club to get any rewards and to be able to continue the game because it costs game currency for every attempt at a level. It starts out being reasonable but inflates to a rate where your daily bonus won't even cover one round.
I have also had the game crash several times at the worst times. Once when I was putting the last card on the pile to win and the second when I was claiming the red star reward of 42k coins. Needless to say I didn't get to win of get my coins. The game acted like I lost he round and claimed the coins respectively. The one that really annoyed me is when it didn't give me the coins because that is a week long event and I got to the 50th or so spot and I got nothing ting for it. It just adds to the stress of the game and I don't need it in my life, it is much more like a job than fun. Maybe you will like it, but I certainly did not.
By Shasha 8
Several years ago this was a delightful game.. Now it’s almost impossible to play unless you dump a bunch of money into it. Lately (at least 3 times if not more) I have purchased booster cards and coin packet that are suppose to be on special for
$4.98 deal. But then my receipt showed doubled the price and so did my bank statement. OUCH!! I hadn’t been paying attention because I would also buy $9.98 packets now and then. But I was pretty sure I was getting short changed some of the time. I started to write down the amount after each purchase.
I saw that I was charged double on two packets for sure. Because I didn’t know how many times this had happened I requested reversal on the two charges I knew about . Since then the game doesn’t allow me to see adds for coins except for a couple of them. I guess the game developers /owners?? are laughing all the way to the bank. All I can say is “Pay attention to the review folks”.
Most Rigged Game Ever
By Eddies chump
I've been playing this over a year.
You have to join a club to get enough coins to play.
Clubs can be demanding, and unpredictable. Either they don't play, and get no coins, or they may use you for points then cut you. So I started my own club. Now, I'm tired of the game but, try to be supportive of the other players in my club. I would prefer to play when I feel, not be obligated to play.
Second, this is the most rigged game ever!!!
Very seldom will you get the cards you need without buying extra, which is nearly twice as much for 5 cards, that sometimes play, most times do not, which now you can buy more cards which is more than double!! The game is designed to eat your coins, and force you to buy packages, which are expensive!! I have had many players quit due to the cost.
They do have several ways to win coin, and I won't buy. But, like I said, be prepared to lose nearly every hand you don't buy extra cards.
No matter whAt card you chose, it will be the wrong one.
There are many glitches and the game freezes at times and there goes more coins. Support is not good.
The clubs are good due to teamwork and the graphics are good.
Can be fun, just wish GSN would get over being so greedy.
No more bonus levels?
By The Muta
So what I find really frustrating is that the bonus levels no longer are accessible for me. I have both GSN and Bingo Bash apps on my phone, and I still cannot access the bonus levels. Because of that, I continuously have to fight to stay in the same division for the Leaderboard Competition. Since the last major update, I have found myself to play less and less. The removal of the Club Quests was the start. Now that the Bonus Levels are not accessible, it’s just another thing to the pile. If they can, at least, get the bonus levels working correctly again, I will modify my review. Until then.....
UPDATE: Devs came through as they said. Much appreciated! Addictive!
