UNO Spark Debate By Saying You Can't Stack +2 and +4 Cards

The creators of UNO probably had no idea what they were doing, no idea of the carnage that they would cause by making a card game that they thought people would just play in a pleasant, civilised manner. But by now we know better - families everywhere know that there is no possible way of getting involved in a card game with your loved ones without causing mass, brutal carnage.


You love your mum? Your sister? Your boyfriend? What about if they try and usurp you in Monopoly, have some difficult letters on Scrabble, or stack cards in UNO? Then, it's every man for himself. We all think we know the rules and are ready to lay down our lives to defend our version of them, but now it turns out that we don't know how UNO works at all.

UNO have taken to social media to "clear up" some confusion, i.e. shatter our understanding of UNO as we thought we knew it. Apparently, we've been playing it wrong this entire time...UNO tweeted: "If someone puts down a +4 card, you must draw 4 and your turn is skipped. You can't put down a +2 to make the next person Draw 6. We know you've tried it. #UNO".

They're not wrong, we have tried it...and that's how we know it's absolutely correct. When someone puts down a +4 card, you're allowed to put down a +2 card if you have it in your pack...meaning that the next player has to draw six.

No matter what UNO say, we know what's really correct - and that's stacking cards however we see fit, because they only gaming rule that's actually set in stone is that we MUST win - at any cost, no matter who gets hurt in the process.
