UNO, the interesting number card game, is a big favourite and people including children as well as adults enjoy playing it.

WHAT IS UNO?
Originally developed by Merle Robbins in 1971 in Ohio, UNO is card game that has been popular across generations. It consists of number cards in different colours as well as action cards such as Wild, Draw Four, Skip, +2 and Reverse.

Now, you have to play one card matching the card laid out in colour, number or symbol. The game continues and every action card has a particular rule with it.
