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!
