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: not loading

By tweetyx2 » April 20th, 2016, 6:51 pm

I have been having this same problem with several of these games. I have tried all of the suggestions listed by other members and I have found nothing that will work for me. It is getting where the games that I can play is getting more narrow. It keeps me from joining in on the weekly badges since many of those are these same games. I have been a member since July 2008. I would like to continue to be a member but I would like either communication specifically on what I can do or an announcement from Pogo themselves.

It is called the "Cookies and milk" badge. You have to have 7 wins with at least one "free cell" left. I was only leaving the last row on the right, so I was playing wrong?? Gees.

What is the name of the challenge?

Free cells and free columns are two different things.

If the challenge requires leaving a free cell open, that means not using the cell that appear at the bottom of the screen.

The "free column" is the one that appears at the top right side of the columns.

Rainy Day Spider Solitaire • wins are not getting credit

By clweith » April 10th, 2016, 10:09 am

I'm working on an older badge where you must win 17 games with at least one of the helper free cells open. The first two wins I got by leaving the opened right end cell opened. I had no problems, I've since won three more games and I'm not getting credit. I changed nothing, why would it stop working?????? This is frustrating. Any help would be appreciated.

If you look on the Women's side of the Mini Mall, you will see you also got a yellow blouse called Sunshine Blouse and a yellow flowered skirt called Yellow Blossoms.

There were 7 mini items in total.
