Rainy Day Spider Solitaire How To Play

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!

Rainy Day Spider Solitaire Tips and Tricks

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.

First make sure that the challenge has been activated.

You need to complete a game in less than 10 minutes, and you need to do that five times.

There is no timer in the game so you have to keep track of the time yourself.

The time begins the moment the game starts.

The good news is that you don't have to win five games in a row in less than ten minutes. You will still get credit for the ones you complete in time.

Play on Easy difficulty level, use the bonus free column and any bonus free cells that appear.

By doing that you should be able to win a game in less than 10 minutes.

I’m doing a free personal challenge on Rainy Day Solitaire. It says that you need to complete five games in under ten minutes. I’ve played several games but I’ve not gotten credit for anything. How do you get it to time you?

You use gems to purchase extra time.

Did you do that?

If not, then the challenge expired but you can reactivate it and try again.

I was half way to getting my badge and asked for more time. It gave it to me but took my progress back to 0. That's a lot of time investment to start over. :?

I just tried Rainy Day and my Chat was there and working. What do you see? Do you see a Blue blank box? Click on the Cog/Gear just over the Who's Here and make sure you have Show Chat checked.
If that is not the case, please explain further.

Pogo "borrows" rooms when space is needed for other games that have weekly challenges.

Sometimes the rooms return after the challenge week ends but sometimes they don't return.

If it's the On Easy Street Badge, you won it yesterday.

If it's the Rainy Delay Badge, the requirement is to win 9 games without using the Bonus Free Column (that's the last column all the way on the right side).

Increasing your browser's zoom size will work for some games but remember to return the zoom to 100 percent after you are finished playing.

A zoom that is higher than 100 percent could result in mouse clicks not being recognized in the new games that are programmed in HTML5 and also in the table games (Jungle Gin, Canasta, etc.).

I LOVE the format of this game! At the end of the day, I most love the peacefulness of the rain and the slow pace it can be played. Very glad it's staying as is. In regard to size, you can enlarge the screen through your browser till your heart is content. :)

My stats show as 51 under my profile, the in-game rank in the bottom right hand corner while playing the game shows 51, and after the jackpot spin, my rank is 51. It appears it is progressing. I will see if it continues. Thanks for responding.

Thank you for letting us know. :)
