What It Is
UNO Emoji Card Game from Mattel takes the classic game of UNO, and gives it an Emoji-inspired twist. The 112 UNO cards in the game feature Emoji faces and symbols, which will appeal to emoji lovers everywhere. Anyone familiar with emojis will recognize the faces, the thumbs up sign, dancing twins in bunny ears, and of course, poop. Just like traditional UNO, 2 to 10 players ages 7 and up race to be the first player to get rid of all their cards. To do so, players take turns matching a card in their hand with the card shown on top of the deck. This Emoji-themed variation features a special card that requires players to imitate and hold an Emoji expression. If a player does not hold the expression for two turns, he or she has to draw four cards. It is more difficult than it sounds, especially when there are a lot of players, but it adds a funny twist to the game. The first player to score 500 points wins. And as always, players must yell “UNO!” when they have only one card.
Is It Fun?
