Here are explanations of the major Uno Party card meanings and their roles in the game:

Number Cards (0-9)

These are the basic cards that players match to keep their turn. They match the previous card played by color or number. Players must match by color first, then by number if possible.

Wild Cards

Wild cards can be played at any time and allow the next player to choose the new color for the rest of the turn. This can change the course of the game.

Wild Draw 4 Card

Similar to a wild card but the next player must also draw 4 cards from the draw pile in addition to choosing the new color. This is a powerful card to disrupt other players.

Make it Blue

This action card forces the next turn to be played using blue cards only. It gives the player who plays this card more options to match the next turn.

Skip Card

The skip card forces the next player in turn order to miss their turn. This allows the current player to continue playing and discarding cards.

Reverse Card

The reverse card switches the direction of play, so the turn order goes counter-clockwise instead of clockwise. This disrupts the normal flow of the game.

Draw 2 Card

The next player in turn order must draw 2 cards from the draw pile after this card is played. It punishes the next player and gives the current player another turn.

Uno Party Rules

Basic rules are the same as standard Uno but there are some key differences:

The UNO Party Rules and Cards 7
  • Players take turns clockwise placing a card of the same color or number
  • If you cannot play, draw until you can play a card
  • Action cards trigger their effects immediately
  • The first player to discard all cards wins
  • Players can only have 7 cards in hand at anytime
  • When a wild card is played, the next player chooses the color
  • Shouting UNO before playing your last card grants you an extra turn if someone makes you draw

Standard Rules

  • Players take turns clockwise placing a card of the same color or number as the card previously played.
  • If a player cannot play a card, they must draw from the deck until they get a playable card
  • The first player to discard all their 7 cards wins

Action Cards

  • Reverse: The direction of play switches
  • Skip: The next player in turn order is skipped
  • Draw 2: The next player draws 2 cards and forfeits their turn
  • Wild Card: The player who placed the Wild card chooses the next color to be played. All players must then follow suit.

House Rules

  • No 7’s: When a 7 is drawn, the next player misses their turn
  • Stacked Draws: Draw cards are cumulative. So if a Draw 2 is played, then a Draw 4 later – the next player draws 6 cards.
  • Chaining Draws: Players can play a Draw card on another Draw card that hasn’t been resolved yet, causing the next player to draw even more.
  • Shout UNO: If a player shouts “UNO” before playing their last card and is wrong, they draw 4 cards as a penalty.
  • Players can only hold 9 cards maximum (including draw cards) to keep the game moving.

Uno party ideas for adults
