The UNO Attack Rules And Cards

Uno Attack is a variation of the popular card game Uno by Mattel that was released in 1998 under the supervision of Jeffrey Breslow and includes 112 cards and a mechanical card launcher.

The game is suitable for both kids and adults and features a card blaster where instead of drawing cards like classic Uno, players press a button on the card launcher to get their cards. The card launcher holds the draw pile cards (the remaining cards after dealing), and it shoots out a random number of cards at random times.

Uno Attack Card Game Rules

The game aims to be the first player to discard all your cards while avoiding getting hit by the launcher. You also have to say “Uno” when you have one card left, or else you have to draw two penalty cards. The game ends when one player reaches 500 points, which is calculated by adding up the points from the cards left in other players’ hands.

Uno Attack Card Shooter

The game has a special mechanical card launcher on 3 C batteries. The card shooter contains a receptacle where the deck of cards is placed and a button on the front, known as the “Launcher Button”. When the rules call for a player to “Hit” the card shooter, the player presses the button on the card shooter.

The UNO Attack Rules And Cards 8

Here are the rules to play UNO Attack:

Starting the Game

Uno Attack is an exciting card game that can be played with two to ten players, where the person to play all his cards first wins the round. The game starts with the dealer who shuffles all cards, gives each player seven cards, and puts the remaining cards into the launcher to start the discard pile.

Taking Turns

In Uno Attack, players play a turn by matching a card from their hand to the top card on the discard pile and matches can be by color, number, or symbol. If there is no match, the player must press the launcher button, and if no cards shoot out, play continues to the next player.

Playing a Card

On each person’s turn, he can play a card in the discard pile by number, color, or symbol and can also play a special card, such as a wild card, and discard all cards, etc.

Drawing a Card

When you need to draw a card, press the button on the card launcher. The cards do not shoot out every time. If no cards shoot out, the lights and sound will increase faster and faster each time the button is pressed.

Yelling “Uno”

When a person has one card left, he must yell “Uno” before playing his last card and in case, he played without saying “Uno” before his card touches the discard pile, he will get a penalty and take two extra cards from pile and play continues as usual.

Winning the Game

The first player to get rid of all their cards wins the round and scores points for all the cards left in the other person’s hands by following the Uno Attack cards points discussed above. Numbered cards are worth their face value, while action cards are worth 20 or 50 points, depending on the type. The game continues until one player reaches at least 500 points and the person who gets the 500 first wins.
