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.

On the easiest level you will only have 1 suit and it is black. On Medium difficulty level you will have two suits; 1 black and 1 red. On Hard difficulty level you will have all 4 suits.

After I played 1 game for a bit and couldn't win, i clicked new game and it gave me the pop up saying I won the challenge.

:lol: That's sense of humor for you. Some games you can get away with not completing them and others, not so much. I wouldn't let it ruin your day.

Your browser's zoom needs to be set at exactly 100 percent - nothing higher than that.

While you are on the home page, hold down the CTRL key and press the Zero key (above the letter P on your keyboard) at the same time. That will bring your zoom to 100 percent.

Do that BEFORE you go to the game.

Hello Pogo Community,

Yesterday Pogo experienced some issues with Solitaire Gardens and Mahjong Escape. To be safe, we temporarily disabled both games so we could thoroughly investigate - and the issue was found and the team is now working on a solution. The games will remain offline for a bit longer so please keep watching the Pogo Blog for more updates.

Thanks again for your patience.

For the past week whenever I open the game, the top part is missing, the deal stack and where the aces go. Has anyone else been having this problem?

No, it's been that way since the tournaments started.

Your team doesn't have any of the nine games activated.

The games that the host selects will show up on the list when you click Tournaments > My Tournaments.

I'm sorry, but that doesn't work for me. When I click on Rainy Day Spider in the Leaderboards, I get the same display as I do when in the game, which starts with the first rank.

Thanks for trying, but I shouldn't have to leave the game to see where my team ranks. It takes a lot of the fun out of tournaments, but I'll live with it.


Before you start accumulating score, you must first activate games for the tournament. Only the host can do that.

Have your host scroll down to the bottom of the My Tournaments tab and select one or more of the games for the tournaments. Until that is done, it won't matter how much score you accumulate, it will NOT count towards the tournaments.
