Uno (card game)

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The different cards of UNO

Uno (stylized on usual branding as UNO) is an American card game that was made by Merle Robbins in 1971. It has since been bought by a company named Mattel. It uses 108 special cards that are made just to play Uno. It is similar to Crazy Eights.

The cards are put into 4 different groups: Red cards, green cards, blue cards and yellow cards. There are also some other cards called "Special Cards". Skip, Reverse, Draw +2(This card can be canceled by Reverse card which changes the way), Wild, and Wild +4 cards allow you to do something you cannot normally do, such as pick up two more cards.

Each player starts off with 7 cards, randomly assigned. A card from the main deck is then placed in the center for everyone to see. The first player must put down a card that is either the sane color or number, or a wild card. When a player puts down a regular card, the next person has to put down another card of the same color or number, and it keeps on going in order. When a skip card is placed, the next person's turn is skipped. A reverse card reverses the order of the game. A wild card can be placed above any color, and the player chooses what color they want everyone to continue with until someone puts down a card with the same number but a different color or a wild card. +2 cards force the next player to draw 2 cards, but +4 cards force the next player to draw 4 cards and the current player gets to pick a new color of their choice.
