Everything you have known about UNO is about to change. So, hold on to your cards, we’ve got game-winning information!
UNO, which means ‘one’, is an American shedding-type card game that is played with a specially printed deck. The game was developed in 1971 by Merle Robbins and it has been a Mattel brand since 1992. Later one, Merle later sold the rights to UNO to a group of friends headed by Robert Tezak for $50,000 plus royalties of 10 cents per game.
Being around for so many years on our tables, UNO has come with some pretty awesome news! Before going there, how many times can you recall when you had one Action Card left in the end but were forced to take an extra two cards because those were the rules of the game? I assume A LOT. You couldn’t end on an action card like +4, +2, Reverse, WILD, etc.
However, the good news is you won’t have to draw an extra two cards anymore. UNO themselves have officially confirmed that yes, you can end the game on an action card! (I don’t know whether to be proud or embarrassed, as I was playing by this rule since young.)
So, for all those who have always wanted to win the game while making the player next to you suffer from the ‘Draw 2’ card or the ‘Draw 4’ or even the ‘Color Change’ card, now it’s your time to shine!
Guaranteed: Tempers will be lost and friendships will end over this. Thank you very much!
It all happened after a person shared a video on Twitter showing his friend being slain by the brutal action cards.
UNO then responded, giving the good (or bad for some) news.
So, YES! You can end the game with an action card!
However, there’s a snatch! You can only discard one action card per turn.
Let the game begin!
