Robbery at its finest

They rob people of their money!!!! There is no way you spend $80 and lose all your coins!!!! It’s rigged. Don’t do it. Spend hundreds to only let them sleep good at night!

Its rigged they really be cheating

They let u win for a minute then they start having you lose in the same pattern. Especially if you buy coins they make u lose all yo coins after a while and keep losing so you can buy more this game is very fun and addicting but really a scam

Is It Any Good?

Though this does a good job of recreating the classic card game, it doesn't do a good job of making you feel like you're playing this game with friends or family. For those who've never played the physical version, UNO! is a card game where you have to get rid of all of your cards by matching the number or color of the card that was last tossed onto a pile. You can also get cards that change the color the next player needs, or reverse the direction of who plays a card next. If you still don't have a card that works that round, you have to take one from the pile of stacked, unrevealed cards. There's also a time limit for each person to do something, and a time limit on each game as well, while certain cards can cause the next player to lose their turn or have to draw two cards.

While you play this against other people online, either strangers or friends, and can even play co-op with teams of two, you still don't have the camaraderie of playing this in the same room with other people. That's especially true if the people you usually play UNO! with are lively, talkative folk. This could also (ironically) really use a single-player version, especially for those unfamiliar with the rules. Still, if you're a big fan of this card game, and want to keep playing even after your friends go home, UNO! is an acceptable substitute.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
