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.

The free cell is located at the bottom of the game whereas the free column is the extra column at the end of cards. You can use that column for this challenge but make sure you do not use the free cell at the bottom of the game.
If you have two free cells, make sure that you only use one of them or you will not get credit.

What is the name of the challenge?
Check the requirements to be sure that it specifies free cell instead of bonus free column.

Rainy Day Spider Solitaire • Re: Out of Time

The challenge week ends at 2:00 AM Eastern Time (11:00 PM Pacific Time) but for some unknown reason, this week the challenge pictures are staying there an extra hour.
2:00 AM is always the deadline and it's been that deadline for quite a few years now.

Rainy Day Spider Solitaire • Out of Time

By mrsdriver5 » April 8th, 2015, 4:57 am

I was working on an optional Rainy Day badge for this week, planning to finish it tonight. However, it shows "out of time" even though it was 8:15 p.m. Pacific Time when I first came online. I used to be able to play right up to midnight, but the last few weeks I've been shut down at 8 p.m. Is there somewhere that I can make sure my time is set correctly? Thanks for any help~

My game would no load in Firefox (like it did this morning at 4a.m.). So, I tried IE and it pulled right up!
P.S. I do all the hoop jumping on deleting cache etc. ... but I did do a Mozilla update just before I tried playing pogo... now it only loads "some" games like Tumble Bees. :?

Cloud Burst Badge. Doesn't specify a level. I play on EASY about 99% of the time unless the badge calls for anything on a higher level to meet the requirements. I played a 4th time a few moments ago, so it finally gave me credit for a second game. I did have a JPS at the end of all 4 games.

There are like 4 different badges for winning 8 games.

What is the name of your badge?

One of the badges requires playing on medium level or higher
One of them you cannot use the bonus collumn

The other two seem to be anything. so the details of a badge count.

I'm currently doing a challenge where I have to win 8 games. I've won 3, it's only counted 1. Going back into the same game room hasn't helped.
