  3. Also look at our fun rules for bonus cards!

  • Draw 2 – player takes two turns in a row
  • Draw 4 – player takes 4 turns in a row! 
  • Skip – you get a break this time
  • Reverse – you get a break, go back to the previous player
  • WILD – pick any other player to draw a card and complete an extra activity! 

But what if I don’t have UNO!™ cards?

You could use the same rules above with a normal deck of cards, and replace a colour with a suit (eg red = hearts, blue = clubs etc). Make up your own rules for Jack, Queen, King, Ace and Joker cards!
