Brace yourself for the next iteration of classic UNO™: UNO FLIP!™ Its the matching game you know, plus exciting new twists -- like a double-sided deck and special FLIP card -- that give classic gameplay a competitive edge.
Players take turns matching a card in their hand with the current card shown on top of the deck either by color or number. In a race to deplete their hands, players can play special cards to slow their opponents down, like Skips, Reverses and color-changing Wild cards.
UNO FLIP!™ also includes new Action cards that really shake things up, like Draw Five and Skip Everyone cards. Play the special FLIP card and all cards in your hand, the draw pile and draw deck are flipped over to reveal an entirely new set of numbers and colors on the opposite side! The holder of the FLIP card determines whether or not you play on the "light" side or "dark" side of the deck -- and when you switch it back around. Strategize to rattle your competition and be the first to get rid of your cards to win. When youre down to one card, dont forget to shout "UNO!" Colors and decorations may vary.
UNO has a schizophrenic cousin that introduces a darkly mean streak to the game. While you start playing the favourite that we all know, this version adds a "dark side" in which the penalties are tougher and, at times, uniquely inhumane.
UNO Flip loses nothing of the game in its original form, but adds the potential to really ruin friendships. The new action cards are really horrible (I once had to draw 12 cards in one go just from one card placed).
I like UNO Flip a whole lot more than the original and this is my go-to UNO. I definitely recommend it. Just play it with some really forgiving people, ok?
