UNO Review (Mattel)

What It Is

In the classic card game UNO, it's a race to get rid of all your cards by matching numbers or colors. The game, for two to 10 players, comes with 108 cards, and each player starts with seven cards in his or her hand. Turn over the top card of the draw pile and place it face up next to the draw pile to start a discard pile. Players then take turns matching a card from their hand to the card on top of the discard pile, either by number, color, or Action card. The different Action cards include Draw Two, Reverse, Skip, Wild, and Wild Draw Four. If you play one of these cards, it could cause the next player to draw extra cards or lose a turn, change up the color that's being played, or reverse the direction of play. If you don't have a card, you must draw one from the draw pile. That card can be played if it matches.

When you only have one card left in your hand, make sure you shout "Uno!" or you'll have to draw two extra cards. Once a player has no cards left, the round is over, and that player receives points for all of the cards left in his or her opponents' hands. The first player to reach 500 points wins the game.
