You may already have come across several UNO games and their versions. Let’s explore them and know more.
About UNO Game
UNO is a popular American card game that was invented in 1971 by Merle Robbins(Know more by reading the History of UNO). The game is played with a specially printed deck, which contains a mix of numbers, colors, and action cards. The objective of the game is to be the first player to get rid of all the cards in their hand.
To play UNO, each player starts with 7 cards, and the game begins by randomly selecting a card from the deck to be placed on the discard pile.
Players then take turns drawing cards from the deck and trying to match the card in their hand with the current card on top of the discard pile.
The player must either match the color, number, or type of card with the card on the discard pile, or they must play a Wild or Wild Draw Four card.
If a player cannot match the card on the discard pile, they must draw a card from the deck.
The game continues until a player gets rid of all the cards in their hand.
At this point, the other players will count up the total value of the cards left in their hands, and the player first to reach 500 score points wins the game.
Now, this is the basic classic UNO game rule…
However, not all UNO games are played the same, there are many variations in the different versions of the game. The cards are different, some special rules are there.
This makes UNO an ever-evolving game with interesting variations in its gameplay.
How many versions are there in the UNO game?
There are more than 500 versions of UNO since its inception in 1971. The versions are ever-growing and every now and then Mattel releases a new version.
There are so many that the UNO official also said that they have lost count.
