Uno

Uno 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.

There 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.

Gotta 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?

For 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.

Object 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.

How to 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.

  • All ages can play

  • No batteries needed

  • Encourages color, number, and even word recognition not to mention addition skills

  • Whether you are 8 or 80 this game is fun.
