The object of Rainy Day Spider Solitaire is to clear all of the cards from the Foundation. In order to remove cards from the Foundation, they must be arranged in a sequentially suited manner, from King through Ace. Kings are high, and Aces are low - you cannot play a King on any other card, and an Ace may only be played on a two. In the case of an open slot in the Foundation, *any* card (or set of cards) may be used to fill it.

Regardless of difficulty, each game of Rainy Day Spider Solitaire has 104 regular cards and 6 Bonus cards. In order to win the game, 8 sets of cards must be removed from the Foundation. Play begins by moving existing Foundation cards (if possible), and continues by activating Draw piles, typically when no other moves are available (although they can be activated at any time). The game is won once all 8 sets have been removed.

In order to move a card (or set of cards), the first criteria is finding a legal card to play to. Like most Spider Solitaire games, cards may only be played in sequentially order, from High (King) to Low (Ace). Additionally, sets of cards can only be moved if they are sequentially suited - that is, when they range in order from high to low and are of the same suit. Sequentially suited cards may be played onto cards of a different suit, but only the sequentially suited cards will be able to be moved as a group.

Rainy Day Spider Solitaire - varying degrees of difficulty:
  • Easy - only one suit is used; you will find that many moves are possible, and a very high percentage of games are winnable
  • Normal - two suits are used; you will have to be more careful about mixing suits, as stacks of non-matching suit are difficult to maneuver
  • Hard - four suits are used; even expert Spider players will have difficulty completing games, but it can be done!

Here are some additional pointers designed to help you become a more advanced Rainy Day Spider Solitaire player.

There are times when mixing suits is necessary for success. However, try not to let stacks with mixed suits get too long - they can become very unruly. The Free Column can be a good tool to free yourself if you get stuck.

Unlike other Spider Solitaire games, you are not required to play a King at the top of each Free Column. Any card (or set of cards) can be played on a free column.

If you're faced with two choices, such as moving a card from two different foundation piles, try both to see which will be the most useful. You can always Undo the first move to try the second one. Also, remember to take note of whichever result you don't go with - it could come in handy later on.

NEVER play an Ace at the top of the 11th Free Column! The only time this is acceptable is if you can find a home for it right after you move it or if you are entirely out of other moves - otherwise, you won't be able to play anything else onto that Free Column until you find a new home for it.

The Free Cells are a great place to store cards that are getting in your way, especially Aces or any card that appears on the foundation more than 3 or 4 times.

If you have to choose between two cards to move from the Foundation, it's usually best to choose whichever one gets you closer to the bottom of the Foundation. The more Free Columns available to you, the more freedom you have to move more cards.

Other than Thousand Island Solitaire, which is a Java game, your recent badges show that you do have Flash installed and enabled.

Rainy Day Spider Solitaire • Re: Game Runs Too Slowly

By bd63033 » January 15th, 2017, 6:24 pm

I never thought about my score. Tried to line up as many as possible, so I had less moves to complete a suit. If the cards were not falling and time getting close start a new hand.

Rainy Day Spider Solitaire • Game Runs Too Slowly

By LostCatsToo » January 15th, 2017, 2:38 pm

I was disappointed to find that the game runs too slowly for me to finish it in time. This is a shame, because I really like this game and it is so frustrating to not be able to move the columns around fast enough for it to count because of the speed of the game. I cannot complete this badge.

Try using the Free column and both of the extra spaces given during play. Sure helps me. If the point is to win 5 games to get the badge i'm not really concerned so much with my score, but with how many i win. Using that extra column worked for me.

Yes it is doable. Play on easy (all black suit) and use the free column and any free cells if you need them. It's not hard. It just takes some speed and concentration. This is one of my favorite games.

Are you playing on Easy where all of the cards are the same suit?

I still am not receiving credit for games won under 10 minutes. I played all afternoon yesterday and only received credit for one earned and most all of my games I played were under 10 minutes. Tonight once again the same is happening. I have played and all my games have been won under 10 minutes and with no credit once again.
