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.

Before you start accumulating score, you must first activate games for the tournament. Only the host can do that.

Have your host scroll down to the bottom of the My Tournaments tab and select one or more of the games for the tournaments. Until that is done, it won't matter how much score you accumulate, it will NOT count towards the tournaments.

Click on the Tournaments tab at the top of the page and then click Leaderboards.

Look at the left hand side of the page and you will see "All Games."

Click on Rainy Day Spider Solitaire and the page that shows your rank and score will show up immediately.

I wasn't clear enough then. On the tournament tab, it used to show where my team was in the rankings. It now always starts with the team that is first in the rankings. It doesn't matter which browser I use. I'm asking whether the tournament rankings will go back to showing me where my team is without having to go to the full leaderboards then page through all the teams until I find mine.

Nothing's been changed to the ranking.

Rank is based on your score. If other teams score higher than your team, they will move up in rank.

Rainy Day Spider Solitaire • Tournament Rankings

By Herbie_Jack » September 19th, 2017, 3:17 pm

Are the tournament rankings ever going to go back to the way they were? Not all of my teammates play, so I challenge myself to try to get to the silver level, which I can't do with the way their listed now.

I can't get this game to reveal the rows of cards that I need to see in order to play. This game is one of today's challenges. There are not a lot of players on the game to cause it to malfunction . What's up?

Zoom is a browser feature. It enlarges the appearance of the screen but can make the mouse clicks inaccurate.

You can reset your zoom in your browser settings or just hold CTRL and press the zero key (above the P) on your keyboard.

By emofffa » August 26th, 2017, 4:12 pm

I'm having the same issue, no matter which browser I use I can only move one card at a time.

Sometimes, I get an error message about a bad script and thought that was the problem, but no - I can't move the cards even when I don't get that error message.

What this zoom thing? I don't see anywhere to zoom.

Rainy Day Spider Solitaire • can't move columns

By turtlelvr55p » August 24th, 2017, 4:50 pm

This started this morning. I try to move the cards and they won't move for many tries. If they do move, the next ones won't. The same thing is happening in Majong Safari when I click on 2 objects(they won't go away). Anyone have any ideas?

AJones4164: On the chance you are posting about falling behind in Rainy Day Spider Solitaire in the tournament in which you are participating:

You have fallen behind because your team is competing with all the other teams in this tournament.

Consider it as if your team is a running race. When you stop or slow down, other teams continue to play and score, thereby surpassing your teams score.

There is no "set score." Teams play and when they score higher than your team, your team will fall back to Silver or Bronze.

You have to play as often as you are able in order to pass and stay ahead the other teams.

The teams that are in the top 10 percent at the end of each tournament win the Gold Ribbon.

Other teams not in the top 10 percent will win Silver or Bronze ribbons depending on the team score.
