How to Play Uno Flip

Here are some important rules to play Uno Flip:

To play the gam first you need to select the dealer to shuffle the cards correctly and when the dealer shuffles all the cards correctly and distributes 7 cards to each player and he places all the remaining cards face down on the table in centre to form the draw pile.

Always make sure all the cards are facing one way, whether the Dark or Light Side, depending on what side is in play at the moment; however, gameplay always begins on the Light Side.

  • The player with the highest number (Action cards count as zero) becomes the dealer. Since gameplay begins with the Light Side, hold the cards with the Light Side facing you while the outer Dark Side faces everyone else.
  • We place the deck down with the Light Side facing down (unseen) while the Dark Side facing up. This is the Draw pile. We then turn up the top card on the Draw pile and place it down to form a separate Discard pile. This first card will have its Light side facing up so everyone can see what it is.
  • The player to the dealer’s left usually begins first, and play goes clockwise until changed by a Reverse card.
  • Begin by matching the top most card on the Discard pile with a number, color, or symbol (Action cards) according to the side it is on (Light or Dark side).
  • And the play continues from dealers left side to next move on and all players draw cards by matching them and If any player cannot match any card from his hand with those on top of either pile, you must draw one card from either pile. If you can play that card, great! If not, your turn ends.
  • You must say “Uno” out loudly when you have only one card is left in your hand. And if any player forgot to yell UNO then he must draw two more cards from either pile as a panelty and the turns contines until any player draw all of his cards and say UNO and he wins the round and the secondly the last player who is not able to draw all of his cards loses the game.
  • And the second way to win the game is the player reaching 500 points after game ends won the game and the loser is determined by the player with the fewest points.

Uno Flip Cards Rules Light Side Cards

uno flip light side cards rules

Numbered Cards

Function as the same as in standard Uno. Players match the number on the Discard Pile to play a card on their turn.

Draw One Cards

Force the next player (forces the challenged player to draw the cards) to draw 1 card from the Draw Pile after taking their turn as usual. The penalty is minor, only slightly disrupting the player’s hand.

Reverse Cards

Change the direction of play, making players go in the opposite order for subsequent turns. Players immediately before and after the reversing player are mildly impacted, having to adjust to the reversed turn order.

–>

Skip Cards

Allow the current player to skip the next player in turn order, passing their turn. The skipped player only misses one turn, a relatively minor penalty.

Flip Cards

Initially appears to match and function like a regular action card when first viewed (Reverse, Skip, Draw, and Wild). Once laid down, the flip card instantly “flips over” to reveal its Dark Side effect, reversing its function and impact. Before flipping, flip cards tend to provide a valuable but minor benefit to the current player while mildly affecting the next player.

Wild Cards

Let the current player choose the next color to continue playing, benefiting that player. No direct penalties are imposed on other players for the color change.

Wild Draw Two Card

Combine the ability to select a new color with a minor penalty, forcing the next player to draw 2 cards after taking their turn. Overall, Light Side Uno Flip rules largely mirror standard Uno with:

Numbered cards matching by number

Action cards impact other players through minor penalties or reversed/skipped turns, flip cards initially appearing beneficial before instantly reversing to the Dark Side. The focus is on mild strategic disruption rather than heavy punishments, keeping Uno Flip closer in spirit to the original game on the Light Side.

Draw Five Cards

Force the next player (in turn order) to draw 5 cards from the Draw Pile after taking their turn, a significant penalty.

Reverse Cards

Function as the same as on the Light Side, changing the direction of play. However, the more considerable draw penalties on the Dark Side make reversed turns more punishing.

Skip Everyone Cards

Allow the current player to skip every other player except themselves, a more severe version of Light Side Skip cards.

Flip Cards

On the Dark Side, flip cards retain their reversed function after being played until another flip card is laid down.

Wild Cards

Function as the same as on the Light Side, letting the current player choose the next color to continue play.

Wild Draw Color

Combine the Wild card ability with a draw penalty, forcing each player to draw 1 card of the selected color after their turn.

Numbered cards still match by number

In Uno flip cards rules, action cards now force larger card draws of 5 cards, skip multiple opponents, or reverse turns that are more punishing due to draw penalties.
