Got a deck of cards? Play one of these popular card games; the rules are all here in this Howcast video series.
You Will Need
- UNO Cards
- Two or more players
Deal 7 cards per player; create a Draw pile with remaining cards
Shuffle the deck and deal seven cards, face down, to each player. Stack the remaining cards face down to form a Draw pile.
Turn up first card in Draw pile
Turn over the first card in the Draw pile to create a Discard pile.
Have the person to your left match the Discard card
Have the person to the dealer's left match some aspect of the Discard pile card -- either the number, color, or symbol. Place this card face up on top of the Discard pile.
Draw from the Draw pile if no match is made
Draw one card from the top of the Draw pile if no match can be made with the card on the Discard pile. The drawn card can be played if it matches the Discard pile card.
Pass to next player
Pass the play to the next player after a match is made or a card is drawn from the Draw pile. Continue counterclockwise, matching the number, color, or symbol with the Discard pile or drawing from the Draw pile.
Shout "Uno!" when you have one card left
Shout "Uno!" when you only have one card remaining in your hand. Play until one person is out of cards.
Add values of cards in opponents' hands for the score
Add the values of the cards remaining in everyone else's hands, with number cards counting as face value; Draw Two, Reverse, and Skip cards counting for 20 points; and Wild Cards counting for 50 points.
