Dare Cards

Regular Dare cards function similarly to regular UNO cards. Players can match them to the color of the previous card played. When a Dare card is played, the next player must either:

Draw two cards

The Dare List cards define the actual dares associated with each number. If a player completes the dare, they do not have to draw two cards. But they must draw two cards as a penalty if they fail or refuse the dare.

Wild Dare Cards

The player who plays the Wild Dare card chooses the next color to be played, and the Wild Dare number corresponds to a dare on the Dare List cards where the next player then either attempts the dare listed for that number OR draws four cards instead of two as with regular Dare cards, completing the dare avoids drawing the penalty cards.

Reverse Cards

When a reverse card is played, the direction of play switches, and play proceeds clockwise, and if you play clockwise, play proceeds counterclockwise.

Skip Cards

A Skip card forces the next player to skip their turn when the Skip card is played.

Wild Cards

Regular UNO Wild cards still function the same in UNO Dare, allowing the player to choose the next color to play. The next player then simply takes their turn as normal.

Wild Draw 4 Cards

These function identically to regular Wild Draw 4 cards. The next player must draw 4 cards and the player who played the Wild Draw 4 chooses the next color.

Example Dare Cards in UNO Dare

Standard Dare cards specify a number that corresponds to a dare listed on the Dare List cards. For example:

Dare #15

The 15th dare on the Dare List would then be the challenge that player must complete. Wild dare cards work the same way and also allow the player who plays the Wild card to choose the next color played.

The goal of Uno Dare is to discard all of your cards by matching either the color or the number of the top discard pile card. But in this thrilling twist on Uno, players must complete dares each time certain special cards are played. The player who lays down a special card chooses a fun to dare for the next player to act out before continuing their turn.

On each turn, players match either the color or the number of the top of the discard pile. If a player cannot play a card then they draw a card from the draw pile until they have got a playable card. Where drawn cards can be added to their hand and players can play Wild cards at any time to change the color of the discard pile to any color they choose.

When a special card is played like Draw Two, Reverse, or Wild, the next player first completes the dare selected by the player who laid down the special card. Then play continues in a new direction or turn. The goal is to discard all your cards through scoring combinations, doing dares, and avoiding getting stuck with extra cards!

The first player to play all of the cards in their hand and yell UNO first when he has only one card left and the first player to discard all his cards first wins the game.
