You can’t stack in UNO? SAY WHAT?

I’m tipping that UNO’s rule revelation is going to break the internet because surely stacking those awesome +4 and +2 cards in a game of UNO is a strategy used by people the world over.

Including me. And frankly I’m not sure if I can continue to rein as a winning UNO card game shark without my signature, draw card stacking move. UGH.

The Rules are the Rules. But #whatevs.

We’ve just discovered a sneaky Twitter post made by UNO a while back, a bright red beacon tile reading “you cannot stack Draw 2 and Draw 4 cards” along with the caption “If someone puts down a +4 card, you must draw 4 and your turn is skipped. You can’t put down a +2 to make the next person draw 6. We know you’ve tried it. #UNO”. Um, say what?

TOO RIGHT I’VE TRIED IT UNO. It’s my signature, hold no prisoners rule when beating playing the UNO card game with my kids!

The Internet Says WHAT?

Naturally, the internet has blown up in responses to this very popular UNO manoeuvre. Because #winning is important and there’s nothing we love more than watching friends and family having to spread out their UNO hand like a paper fan while holding only a few cards themselves.

Other rules you might not be aware of which UNO also casually tweets:

Many a time has a child kicked over the coffee table at the last game card play of REVERSE. Take that sucker!

Now, this I did know. If you’re playing UNO like this – ie. picking up a MILLION cards until you have one to play you need to STOP. JUST STOP.

Is Game Change Imminent? HELL NO.

Alas, it appears our card game playing ways will change. Or will they? Do you just accept that you’ve been playing UNO the wrong way your WHOLE life and carry on? Hell yes! My deck, my rules… Of course, UNO gets the last laugh on all of us whingers crying foul with this beauty. Well played, UNO. WELL PLAYED.
