The "Reverse" card:

When a player plays this card, the direction of the game is reversed. If the game was played clockwise, it will pass in the opposite direction. Even if it is the first card turned over at the beginning of the game, it must be taken into account.

The "Skip Your Turn" card:

When a player plays this card, the next player must skip his turn. Even if it is the first card turned over at the beginning of the game, it must be taken into account.


The "Joker" card:

When a player plays this card, he may or may not choose to change color by announcing it to the other players. If it is the first card turned over at the beginning of the game, the first player chooses a color.

The "+4" card:

When a player plays this card, the next player must draw 4 cards and pass his turn. In addition, the player who played this card can choose whether or not to change colours. Please note, however, that this card can only be played if the player has no other option. If a player decides to bluff and is unmasked, he will be penalized.

How to play the Uno :

First, one of the players deals each player 7 cards. The rest of the cards are used as a draw pile. The player who dealt the first card from the deck turns over the first card and the player to the left starts the game. The player on the left must cover the card in the deck with a card of the same color, number or symbol. If the player cannot play, he has the option to put down a "wild card" or "+4" card. If the player does not have any of these cards, he must draw one. If the card is playable, the player can put it down directly, if not, he must keep it in his hand.


When a player has only one card left in his possession, he must shout " Uno " to warn all the other players. If he forgets to do so and a player notices, he will have to draw 2 cards as a penalty.

The first player to get rid of all his cards wins. You must then count the points:

  • Numbered cards are counted according to their value.
  • The "+2" card is worth 20 points.
  • The "Reverse" card is worth 20 points.
  • The "Pass your turn" card is worth 20 points.
  • The "Joker" card is worth 50 points.
  • The "+4" card is worth 50 points.
