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.

If you didn't sign out of the game before Pogo went to maintenance then you have lost your progress. Had you left the game with your one win it would have been saved. You should always leave the game as soon and you see that maintenance is pending.

Contact Pogo through the "help" link, and explain to them what happened. They would be the only ones who can help you out. Oh, and be sure to have "third party cookies" enabled when negotiating through the help site.

Rainy Day Spider Solitaire • Took my win away

By Alice468 » July 9th, 2014, 12:56 am

I am working on the Hard Boiled Mix and Match Badge in Rainy Day Spider Solitaire. You have to win 2 games on hard difficulty in 3 weeks. I won a game and it showed 1 of 2. Pogo shutdown early this morning, when it came back on, I was back to 0 with 13 days left on my challenge. How do I get the credit back? This is a difficult challenge for me, but I didn't purchase the badge with gems not to be able go win. Please help.

The game is working properly. We can't fix your computer settings for you. However, try the suggestions in the post I made near the top of this thread.

Which challenge are you trying to do? You have the New Umbrella challenge activated. You cannot have two weekly challenges active for the same game, at the same time, but you can switch to a different RDSS challenge if you don't want to do the New Umbrella challenge.

on that game that I played yesterday/weekly. It won't let me play it again, I would play it on Easy and I know I wouldn't cause any trouble. How can I get it to play?

I'm on Pacific time, same as Pogo time, and I believe my badge week ends on Tuesday night at 11 pm.

However, I haven't pushed it that close since the time change from daylight to standard. I'd err on the side of caution, myself.

RDSS is not keeping track of number of games played in my challenge. I believe I have won about three games out of 15. I think my zoom may have been off from 100 percent. Would that do it?

Anyway, with only hours left, they have put me on the fast track. I plan on finishing, though I really don't know exactly how much time I have left. Depends.

This the weekly badge Umbrella....it says I have 1 day and 3 hours left. It is now 12:00 midnight EST June 24th. Does th
at mean I only have until 3:00 am or 3 hours or does it mean I have 1 day from now starting midnight tonight or what : :)

PS :roll: I didn't see any answer from you as to what caused my problem. However, I discovered it on my own. The challenge forbade using any bonus columns. When I started not using them that is when the uptick started racking 'em up. I've always avoided those kinds of games in RDSS. They did try getting me up to speed, but after that..I was on my own...What a disaster that was. The u tick stopped. I really thought a RDSS game could not be won by not using those columns. But that is just me. And I got in too late. Now I understand better how things work in a challenge.

Pogo does add more ranks to games from time to time but no one here knows if or when that will happen because this is a members forum and not a direct way to reach Pogo.

You can always reset your stats and start over. Click on your name in the Who's Here list then click on Profile > Stats. You won't win the rank badges a second time but you can have fun working your way up the ranks again.

You can also replay any mix and match challenges you have in the game. That will give you a goal to work towards while you play.

I've been waiting for new ranks for a lot of games. I've been ranked out for years.

It sure would help if you told us which badge you are referring to. You don't have a Rainy Day Spider weekly active and I couldn't find one in your Mix and Match Albums. ;)
