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: [RESOLVED] Purchased items showing as unpurchased

By Pogo_Cactuar » April 22nd, 2014, 10:55 pm

Both of these issues should now be resolved and you should be able to play previously purchased episodes in our Hidden Object Games as well as purchase more.

For those players questioning about the sale in Amazing Adventures today (4/22) the sale is currently on until 4/22 11:59pm PDT, so you should still be able to participate.

By Pogo_Cactuar » April 22nd, 2014, 7:50 pm

Our team is aware of some users seeing purchased items showing as being un-purchased in some areas, such as our Hidden Object Games. As well as when you attempt to purchase something for Gems, you may be receiving a message that states you do not have Gems when you really do. The team is currently investigating this issue and is working on a solution for it.

We recommend for the time being that you do not attempt to purchase the item for a second time.

Our team is working to have the issue resolved soon.

Rainy Day Spider Solitaire • Re: Hard level badge

By Mod_Kyra » April 21st, 2014, 6:43 pm

That was probably about my win average and I don't buy them anymore either. Good luck on completing it!

I was going to add that I've never worried about mixing suits. I find that getting those columns uncovered is far more useful and once I have a few nearly empty spots, I can sort those suits. I use a "trash" column that is numerically sorted but not suit-sorted. The advice to keep that end spot empty before drawing a new pile is good advice as is keeping the two spaces at the bottom till close to the end. Nothing more frustrating that being ALMOST done with a game then getting stuck. I'd rather start over earlier.

I do start over if I can't get at least one column nearly empty or empty before clicking new pile for the first time.

Thank you for the hints. I will give them a try. 75 games later, still no luck. I got 1 K through Ace a couple of times. Then Spider broke my little heart. ( M ) See first post.

Hit New Game until you see a deal that has several moves right away without mixing suits.

Rainy Day Spider Solitaire • Re: Hard level badge

By Seska42 » April 18th, 2014, 2:36 pm

Use the extra column but be sure you have a way to have it empty when you get to your next card draw. If you have something in that column and then have a bad card draw you are stuck unless you have that column to use.

You are better off if you don't have alternating suits but, if you need to in order to open up moves, just pick one column so that you have a place to put cards but you aren't locking up multiple columns.

Save the free cells as a last resort late in the game.

Rainy Day Spider Solitaire • Hard level badge

By sportsplay » April 18th, 2014, 2:23 pm

I have worked very hard to win this challenge. No such luck. I have read posts giving tips. Will gladly accept any tips that will help get past this little glitch. :roll: No matter what I do, missing a King, Ace, or 4 (don't ask me why). Looked on You Tube. There is either a charge, or nothing to do with game. :?: As you can see, I really am making an effort.
