Uno is a colored coded card game that's fun for up to ten individuals
or even teams. It's fun even with only two people playing. This
game can go on for hours. It all depends on how long you want
to keep score.
are so many ways to throw wrenches into this game, and that is
what makes it interesting. One minute you can be down to one card,
- hence the name of the game - and the next be caught with tons
of cards and have to give all those points away. All because someone
changed the color, or threw down an action card.
love the action cards that can mess up your game. Skip, Reverse,
Draw Two, Draw Four. Can you say "Uno!" faster than
someone who has just gone down to one card so as to make them
draw another two cards? Or say it faster to save yourself from
having to draw?
younger children, this game is great for number and color recognition.
Those action cards can be good for learning letters, too
not to mention learning how to say "One!" in another
language. This is definitely a great game for the entire family.
of the game: Be the first player, or team, to discard all
cards in your hand while everyone else has tons so that you get
all their points. The first person, or team, to reach the pre-determined
high score wins the game.
play the game: Each player or team is dealt seven cards. One
card is turned over to begin the discard pile. The remaining cards
become the draw stack and should be placed where everyone can
reach it easily. Every player chooses one card to put in the discard
pile. Each card that is discarded has to match the previously
discarded card either in number, color, or word. If you don't
have a matching card you must draw from the draw stack.
When you are
down to only one card you must say "Uno!" before anyone
else sees that you have only one card and says it before you.
If someone else says it before you then you have to draw two cards.
The goal of each hand is to be the first person or team to be
out of cards. All players left with cards at the end of each hand
must add up all the points and they go to the winner of the hand.
The first person or team to hit the high score wins.
