You're trying to run out of cards, and the opportunities to change colors are somewhat limited. Your goal, therefore, should be to play the last card of one of your colors, then be able to switch to another color you have on the next play. This doesn't always work, of course. When changing colors (via wild or matching the card), you should switch to the ...
He will not discard second card this round. The wild card was his play. Play proceeds to the next player with the new colour selected.
These cards are mentioned in Uno instructions - you can use if you loose or damage one of the other cards, or you can use it to include custom house rules card into the deck. See reference in manual: What Are These Extra Cards For? Blank Card - This is a special card that you may use in one of two ways. If a card from your UNO deck is lost or damaged ...
Crazy Eights was a very old game when I first played it in the early '60's. Making a special deck to help remember the abilities of each rank (ie selling UNO) is brilliant entrepreneurship and marketing, but not a new game.
A couple of pointers from the rules. Keep your score low: The winner is determined by whomever scores 500 points first, or in the variation Running Player Totals, by whomever has the lowest total points when someone reaches 500. A good strategy is always try to play your highest value card if you can (other than a Wild/Wild-Draw-4, since at least one of ...
The only one I'll add is whenever a '0' is played, all players pass their hands to the person to their right (regardless of the direction the turn sequence is currently going). Players who receive a hand of one card must say "UNO" or receive the penalty.
Getting the excuses out of the way early: I don't play much Uno at all, and when we do play we typically aim to win a hand, rather than keeping score over several hands. My strategy doesn't take any account of how near to 500 a player is, but presumably you should, as in the optimal Pig strategy. I aim to get rid of high value cards, but keep a wild card ...
I play the largest number I can and save my draws, skips, and reverses for when they can be used against a winning opponent. I really don't worry about number variety. However, I try to keep a low number of high value cards in my hand, namely reverses, wilds, and skips, in that order, so if someone manages to win I don't give them too many points. call ...
Change colour as much as you can, most players want to maintain the colour as long as they still have cards of that colour and want to change otherwise. A nice way to approach this game is to always change the colour when you can (by number on number or by wild), even if you still have cards of the previous colour. The theory behind this is that on average ...
