How many people do you need to play?

You need a minimum of two people to play this novelty card game. Enough cards come in the deck that you can play with a total of 10 adults or children. If you want to increase the game, you can stack two decks together.

Are there any official rules?

Whether you buy a new or vintage deck, you'll get instructions inside the box. Each player receives seven cards with the remainder of the deck placed in the center. You turn one card over, which shows you the color and number or action that you need to match. The first player will put down a matching card. Each player takes turns matching the card. When a player gets down to his or her last card, the individual must say, "Uno." The winner is the person who runs out of cards first.

What do different Uno cards mean?

The different cards in the deck correspond to actions that other players need to take. The Draw 2 and 4 cards ask that the next player takes that many cards from the remaining deck.
