Uno

Uno Review

Uno is the legendary family friendly classic card game. Very easy to learn with color coded cards. Appropriate for all ages, easy for children of young ages to learn.

What we like

  • Affordable
  • Tin case is travel friendly

What we don’t like

  • No free sipping
  • Poorly friendly

How to play

This game uses a very basic color coordination skills. (Blue, Green, Yellow, Red) The aim of this game is t get rid of all the cards in your hand. The players all takes turns by matching the face up card (the number must match but any color of the card can be played.) if a player is unable to play a card on their hand they must take one from the draw pile.

There is of course the classic special card in Uno. Reverses, Skips, draw 2 and 4’s and a color change. The outcome can dramatically change when any of the players uses one of these cards. The first player that has one card left should call out “UNO”.

What we like

  • Free Shipping
  • Timer included

What we don’t like

  • More expensive than competitor board players
  • Questions can get complicated

How to play

At the start of each round the starting team throws the 30 seconds die to determines the games weakest player. The die has 6 sides with the values 0, 1 and 2. One player draws a card, the card will either have  a yellow or blue side. On each side there are 5 words printed. The competitor team then turns the timer (30 seconds). The teams score will be calculated by the amount of correct answers and subtracting the incorrect answers from it. The team will then take their icon and move it forward as many correct questions they had.

Clues

The goal for your team is to guess as many questions correct before the time runs out. To do that you have to make use of some well put clues.

House rules will make the game more relaxing and easier to play as the official rules can tie the gameplay up a bit.
