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.

Rainy Day Spider Solitaire • MAC users - Zoom ANY page or game

By MaggieEmm2 » September 22nd, 2016, 6:27 pm

If you are a MAC user, this is another easier way to zoom any page or game:
1. Go to System Preferences
2. Go to "Mouse" icon
3. Choose the "Point & Click" tab (not "Other Gestures")
4. Check the box for "Smart Zoom" (double tap with one finger)
Now, on any page in Pogo or elsewhere, just double tap your mouse to zoom the page.
Double tap again to return to original size.

If you are a MAC user, this is a solution for this problem:

1. Start the game and them place your mouse 3/4 of the way up the center of the screen.

2. Hold the "option" and "command" keys down while typing the numeral"8". You will have an enlarged game.

3. If you don't like the way it fits on your screen, type the same combination again, and you will be back to normal.

Repeat this process as often as you wish, moving you mouse's location each time to set things up to your preferences.

I am a Senior citizen with limited vision, so I had to solve this too.

Rainy Day hasn't been reprogrammed to include a full screen option.

Have you tried using the magnify option on your computer? Unlike zoom, it shouldn't affect the way the game plays, although you'll lose some of the sharpness of the image. It's helpful for those smaller game screens.

To add to Mod_Skratty's reply, your score should show in the chat area after you win the game.
Also know that you might not see your updated score until you leave the game and click on the tournament tab and then click the "My Tournament" tab.

Rainy Day Spider Solitaire • Re: Credit for points in RDSS

By Mod_Skratty » September 10th, 2016, 4:31 pm

Am unsure what you're saying when you say you're playing the same game over again. Are you finishing each game? You won't get credit if you don't.

Rainy Day Spider Solitaire • Credit for points in RDSS

By cuteelliebaby91 » September 10th, 2016, 4:21 pm

I am not receiving credit for points I earn when playing RDSS. I play this game in a tournament, but am not being given the credit for points earned. I also play FCS, and I am given credit for points there, so why not RDSS? Does it matter that I am playing the same game over again? I realize I won't win a badge each time I play, but I should be receiving points that I earn!

Winning on Hard is a tricky and time-consuming battle. Mod_Kyra's tips above your post are an excellent way to improve your odds. There is no secret other than playing strategically and hoping for a good card layout.

Rainy Day Spider Solitaire • Re: I am only earning half scores for "normal" games

By Seska42 » September 3rd, 2016, 6:54 pm

I've had the wrong cards load for the chosen level a couple of times after the Flash conversion. A similar thing happens in Stack 'Em.

If you see an issue, get into an active game and change your level and then change back to the level you want. That should get your computer and the Pogo server on the same page.

I am replying to my own post b/c no one else has and here it is happening again. If I am playing and winning at the normal and not easy level, my scores should reflect that. Am I the only person this happens to?

Is the "Lost Connection" still a site wide issue? I am getting the boot in the middle of every game.

I have played several games of RDSS over the past couple of days, and in the "chat", I am not being credited for the score being added to my tournament! It's added in First Class which is also one of my team's games. This has never happened before, It would always say how much was added to my team. What gives?
