Draw until you can play something.
You can stack draw 2’s and 4s. That is, if somebody puts down a draw 4, protect yourself with another one and pass it.
You can use skips and reverses to send draw 2s careening around. This makes things hilarious as you think you’re about to screw up somebody horribly only to wind up with a ton of cards sent right the hell back at you.
My fiancée has been hogging my 360 ever since I picked up UNO. I’ve been encouraging her to go online and try it, but she’s concerned about her habit of swearing like a trucker when she gets Wild Draw Four’d, Draw Two’d, hell… Even having her turn skipped will tend to elicit a solid “Fuck!”.
I’ll see if she’s interested in hopping online tonight. If you see “FriarCoop” on, that’s me. And by me, I mean her, playing UNO and cursing up a blue streak.
Draw until you can play something is sweet. I might be available, ‘fucli zombi’ is my gamertag.
Another fun fun thing I tried yesterday:
PROGRESSIVE penalties. You throw a draw two? the next eprson, if they have one, can stack one on top and avoid drawing 2. The person after them can do the same- this goes on and on until someone doesnt have a draw two. That person then draws for EACH of those, so you can end up drawing like, 10.
The free 35th anniversary deck (you have to DL it in the marketplace, but it is free and adds this extra card, you change to this deck when setting up the rules for the game).
It has a card that sounds useless, but is awesome. The 35 card. Once played, nothing, NOTHING can be played on top of it except a 3 or 5. Wilds cannot be played, etc… You can stop someone with uno and a wild draw 4 with this baby. Sometimes EVERYONE draws like a zillion cards due to this.
Ephraim, I wouldnt let her worry about cursing, IMO, if it bothers someone they should say something instead of sitting there getting pissy. I’ve not had any complaints and my language sure gets blue when I play a game.
I’m not sure about the last rule you mentioned but I played the progressive rules (draw 2’s, 4’s stack) with a couple of QT3 UNO experts last weekend. I really liked the rule. I suggest we play that way tonight.
