UNO 2019 Edition Review (Mattel)

UNO 2019 Edition
What It Is

The classic game of UNO gets a minor facelift thanks to four new cards added to the deck. The gameplay is the same, but now you've got a Swap Hands card that allows you to change hands with any opponent and three customizable Wild cards so you can write in any house rule you want, like making the next player draw 10 cards or do a chicken dance. The Wild cards can be erased so that you can create new rules each game.

The object of the game is the same: to get rid of all your cards first by matching numbers, colors, or symbols. If you can't match a card from your hand to the top card on the discard pile, you must draw a card from the draw pile.

When you play your next-to-last card, you must yell "UNO!" to indicate you only have one card left. If you don't yell it and someone catches you, you draw two cards. Once a player runs out of cards, the round is over, and that player receives points for all the cards left in his opponents' hands. Play until one player reaches 500 points.

Is It Fun?

This is a perfect game for families who love making up their own house rules during family game night. We like that it's customizable over and over again, but that you can also play the regular version of UNO by simply removing the four new cards from the deck. If you're an UNO fan looking to change up how you play the game, then this new version offers creative possibilities without being totally different.

Who It’s For

UNO is for two to 10 players ages 7 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

The game includes 112 cards.

Use a No. 2 pencil to write house rules on the customizable Wild cards.

You can still play the regular version of UNO by taking out the four new cards.
