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 • Re: Hard Setting

By RRTinTX1 » December 9th, 2016, 5:42 pm

I agree with the other post. When I first load a game, I look to see how many of the same number cards have been dealt. For instance, if there are more than two 4's AND two of any other card numerically, I load another hand. Too many repeat cards limit what you can play.
Reloading a new game before you make a move doesn't count as a lost game. Once you make a move, you start a 'new game'
instead of just loading a new hand and that counts as a game played, but lost.
Undo, undo, undo! If it doesn't work out, you can undo all of your moves back to your last dealt stack or your last full suit played. Be careful to allow yourself moves after you finish a full suit. For example, if you fill a suit that still has cards under it on the stack, you may not be able to play anything after you finish the suit. Think ahead.
It's a workout, but I enjoy it on the hard setting more once I got used to it. Don't be afraid... it's just a game! ;) Good luck!

Rainy Day Spider Solitaire • Re: More Ranks

By Mod_Jada » December 8th, 2016, 10:36 am

Pogo chooses one game each month as the "Game Of The Month."

That game gets 10 new ranks and a new rank badge.

More ranks will be added if this game becomes the "Game Of The Month."

Rainy Day Spider Solitaire • making all tournament games on full screen

By scootman411linda » December 7th, 2016, 10:16 pm

Is there any chance that all the games that are on tournaments playable on full screen mode? I play a lot of Rainy day Soliitare and my eyesight is not the best and it would be wonderful if it could be played in large size. I really appreciate the others that are large Just wondering if that is in the near future?
Thanks,

I have discovered that after clearing my Flash Cache the options I have added to my Flash Player Manager Settings also get cleared.
This is the information that I read in other forums that needs to be added to the Global Security Settings panel:
Pogo.com
game3.pogo.com
pogospike-prod.pogo.com

And the Global Storage Settings needs to be set to unlimited.

All this gets reset(deleted) after I clear the Flash Player cache.

Please advise other players to check the Flash Player Settings and re-enter this information if needed.

I am still having problems with Flash game taking a long time to load, some take up to 10 to 15 minutes to load, First Class Solitaire seems to load faster with the proper information added to the settings.

Java Versions installed False
Operating System Windows NT 10.0
Flash version 23.0.0
Resolution 1366 x 768
Browser Chrome 54.0.2840.99
Cookies Enabled? True

Browser Not Supported More Info

Operating System No problem found!

Resolution Not supported More Info

The suggested resolution setting is 1024 by 768 or higher, I'm not sure why it keeps telling me my setting is not supported.

Rainy Day Spider Solitaire • Re: Ranks

By Seska42 » November 25th, 2016, 5:58 pm

No one here knows for sure.

Pogo is doing the Game of the Month (which includes adding 10 ranks) and Rainy Day is likely to be used for that eventually.

Is Pogo ever going to add anymore ranks to this game? I've been ranked out for years now.

The game is working properly.

Please try the suggestions below:

Clear your browser's cache, history, temp files and cookies. If you use Internet Explorer, make sure "Preserve Favorite Website Data" is not checkmarked.

Close your browser after that and now clear your Flash cache:

Close your browser. Go to Start > Control Panel > Click on Flash Player or type in "Flash Player" in the "Search Control Panel box" > Storage > Click the "Delete All" button > Make sure the "Delete All Site Data and Settings" is checked > Delete Data. Restart your browser.

Flash games use a lot of resources so it's a good idea to clear your Flash cache on a regular basis.

Also see the thread below. It will show you how to increase your Flash storage:

Flash Player Manager

Make sure you have the correct version of Flash: 23.0.0.207. See below:

If both are Mac's and using Safari and only one is playing correctly, then the other has a setting wrong. The problem is with your Safari settings on the Desktop. Did you check the Zoom?
