To determine who goes first, each player draws a card. The player who draws the highest number card deals and the person to the dealer’s left goes first. The dealer then hands out seven cards to each player, places the remaining deck in the middle, flips over one card, and places it face-up next to the deck. The remaining deck becomes the Draw Pile and the face-up card is the Discard Pile.
During each player’s turn, they can either lay down one card that matches the color or number of the one currently on top of the Discard Pile, or a Wild card. If the current player has no usable cards, she draws once from the Draw Pile. If the card drawn is playable, it can be used immediately. If it is not, play proceeds to the next person in turn. Players can opt to draw a card on any turn, even when they have playable cards, but they can only play the drawn card immediately afterward.
The round ends when one player has discarded her entire hand. That player accumulates points based on the remaining cards in every other player’s hand. The first player to reach 500 points wins the game. Number cards are worth their face value. Draw Two, Skip, and Reverse cards are all worth 20 points. Wild and Wild Draw Four cards are both worth 50 points.
When a player has only one card in her hand, she must declare “Uno!” If the player fails to do so and is caught by another player, then she must draw two cards.
When a Wild Draw Four card is played, it can be challenged by the player being forced to draw cards. The player who used the Wild Draw Four must then show their hand to prove that it was played legally (they have no usable number cards). If the play was illegal, then the player who used the Wild Draw Four must draw four cards. If it was legal, then the challenger must draw six cards.
If someone plays a wrong card and gets caught, the player must take the card back and draw two more.
Suggesting cards or plays to other players is against the Uno game and uno game 2 rules. Any player caught doing so must draw two cards.
In Uno game there are several different types of cards. First are the number cards (0-9), which come in four different colors (red, blue, green, yellow). Then there are the five action cards: Skip, Reverse, Draw Two, Wild, and Wild Draw Four.
Uno Skip Card
The next player in line loses their turn. This card must match the color of the top card in the Discard Pile. If Skip is the first card placed in the Discard Pile, then the first player loses her turn.
Uno Reverse Card
Reverses the order of gameplay. This card must match the color of the top card in the Discard Pile. If Reverse is the first card placed in the Discard Pile, then the dealer goes first and play proceeds to the right.
Draw Two Card
The next player must draw two cards and forfeit the turn. This card must match the color of the top card in the Discard Pile. If a Draw Two is the first card placed in the Discard Pile, then the first player must draw two cards and forfeit her turn.
Allows the player to change the color in play. It can be played during any turn. If a Wild is the first card placed in the Discard Pile, then the dealer chooses a color and play continues to the left.
Wild Plus Four
Same as the Wild card, except the next player must draw four cards and forfeit her hand, and it can only be used when the player has no cards matching the color of the card topping the Discard Pile (see Penalties above). It can be used even if the player has cards matching the number or action card.
