Uno Attack Rules
The Uno attack rules have confounded, amused and mystified many people. Actually, if you have ever played Uno attack, you know that is not true. Rather than simply laying the cards down in a pile, as occurs in a normal game, an electronic card launcher is involved.
- Remember the rules for a standard UNO game. All of the rules you used in early games still apply. The object remains to get rid of all the cards in a player's hand. A player's hand size can vary considerably during the game.
- On your turn press the button on the card launcher. If the player remember to include the three C batteries that the launcher takes, this should not present much of a challenge. The launcher shoots out anywhere from zero to nine cards.
- The player whose turn it is next does whatever the cards tell him to do. If you get a draw 4 card and a draw card, you draw six cards. A person can wind up with a lot of cards in his hands he does not need.
- Dealing with the Change hands card. Uno attack has a new card not found in the current take. The change hands cards instruct players to do exactly what the card says. The hand change card could bring you closer to victory or set you back.
- Remember to say Uno when you only have one card in your hand. If you do not say Uno, you have to draw more cards. This is the same thing you would in a normal game that does not use the launcher.
For the most part Uno attack is simply a new twist on an old and time-tested family game. Some players may modify the game to try to hit opposing players with cards from the launcher. When the game is done, you may or may not need to replace the launcher's batteries.
