According to the official UNO Twitter account, many of us having been playing the classic card game wrong for almost 50 years now. No, I am not kidding.
This past Saturday, someone on the UNO social media team decided to drop a bomb on the internet, blowing people’s minds with one simple tweet.
They wrote, “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.”
That’s right. UNO, a game that pretty much everyone has played at one point or another since it was invented in 1971 by Ohio barber Merle Robbins to settle a Crazy Eights rules dispute is not down with your made-up, house rules.
And don’t even bother trying to reply with your arguments against what the UNO team says either. Because they’ve been doubling, tripling, and quadrupling down on their statement to anyone who dares question them.
Seriously, this just goes on and on, and is STILL going on FOUR DAYS since UNO posted the original tweet.
