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.

My browser zoom isn't the problem. That is always at 100%. Several games are like this. It was listed as a known issue a week or so ago, but I don't even see that announcement here anymore.

The game is working. It is a Flash game so make sure you have the latest version of Flash (13.0.0.182).
It's a good idea to clear your browser's cache, history, temp files and cookies lately? When you do, make sure "Preserve Favorite Website Data" is left unchecked. 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.

Make sure that you do not have many things running in the background (such as Instant Message, etc.) as they can interfere with Flash games.

Lastly,you may need to increase your Flash Player storage setting. See the post by Mod_Skratty in the thread linked below:

Yes, and I do believe someone else mentioned that in the Badges and Challenges thread. It took me about 25 minutes at most.

In addition to what Ken said about moving the cards by clicking on the higher/first/uppermost card in the series of cards rather than the bottom card, I would like to add this information:

Rainy Day Spider Solitaire offers three different levels of play: Easy (in which one suit is used), Normal (in which two suits), and Hard (in which four suits!).

You can mix suites in the Normal Level and in the Hard Level

In the Normal Level– where two suits are used; you will have to be more careful about mixing suits, as stacks of non-matching suit are difficult to maneuver.

In the Hard Level – where four suits are used; even expert players sometimes have difficulty completing games, but it can be done!

If you are playing on the Normal or Hard Level, there will be times when mixing suits is necessary for success. However, try not to let stacks with mixed suits get too long - that can become very troublesome. The Free Column can be a good tool to free yourself if you get stuck.

Are you starting with the highest card or just clicking on the bottom card?

what level are you playing?
you can only move a series of cards of the same suit.
a mixed series will not move. ten-ace if mixed will not move
but if all same suit, then they do.
