I tried playing 'UNO FLIP' of the front and back integrated card where the dark side suddenly starts from the usual 'UNO'

' UNO FLIP ' has been added to the '

UNO ', the royal road of card games, which prints more than 500 million sheets each year. With the appearance of a ``flip'' card that flips the front and back of the card, it is said that the usual UNO will change and the radical rule unique to the dark side will start, so actually try to see what kind of game it is It was.

From UNO, a new product featuring both front and back sides of the card has appeared! 'UNO FLIP' released in late June | mattel

What kind of game is UNO FLIP?
The UNO FLIP package is designed based on dark purple.

The expected number of players is 2 to 10, and the target age is 7 years or older.

On the back of the box, along with the phrases 'Urgo Uno on the light side!' and 'Hard Uno on the dark side!', the rules to flip your hand with a flip card were introduced.

The contents are an instruction manual and a card.

There are a total of 112 cards, including four green, blue, yellow, and red cards, and four wild cards and two wild draw cards.

Colored cards consist of 1-9 number cards and 4 symbol cards. Up to this point, it is the same as ordinary UNO.

The table is an ordinary Uno card...

The card side is also printed on the back.

When this 'flip' card, which is a feature of UNO FLIP, appears in the game...

All players flip their hands over and the 'dark side' game begins. There are also four-color number cards and symbol cards on the back with a black border, like the front, but the front and back of the card are separate and completely different cards. For this reason, it will be transformed into a different game than before.

◆ I played
This time we played with 4 people, following

the official rules of UNO . First, give each player 7 cards, and place the rest of the cards face down into a deck.

The rule that you can get the same color, number, and symbol as the card in play is the same as traditional UNO.

On the right side, 'Draw 1' that draws one card to the next player and...

'Reverse' that changes the direction in which the order turns

The game progresses crisply, such as 'skip' where the next turn person is skipped once.

Here, a player puts out 'Wild Draw 2'. The player who issued this card can declare the favorite color and let the next player draw two cards.

However, the next player quietly didn't draw two cards and called 'Challenge!'.

When a challenge occurs, the player who issues 'Wild Draw 2' only reveals his or her hand to the player who called the challenge. Then, it turns out that there is a red 'skip' card in the hand that is the same type as the yellow 'skip' card that was in play before 'Wild Draw 2' appeared.

It is an offense to issue 'Wild Draw 2' despite the fact that there are other cards that can be played, but it is possible to put it into play with a casual face. However, if this comes out due to the challenge of the player who receives 'Wild Draw 2,' you will be penalized by drawing 2 cards while returning 'Wild Draw 2' to your hand. This is the '

challenge ' rule that officially exists.

Meanwhile, 'Flip', one of the symbol cards, appeared on the scene. Then...

All participants turn their hands over. The deck and the cards in the field are turned over as they are, and the dark side game starts.

Dark side symbol cards have a stronger effect than light side symbol cards. This 'Dark Color Wild' card that appeared this time is a particularly powerful card that allows you to specify your favorite color and let the next player draw as many cards as you like. There are no players who have eaten.

Therefore, the player who was penalized by the challenge just called the 'challenge' this time.

When I checked my opponent's hand, I found an orange card in my hand before 'Dark Color Wild' appeared.

On the light side, the back of your hand is visible to all players, so remembering this will allow you to effectively use the challenge when the dark side begins.

Players who succeeded in returning the challenge steadily reduced their hands by using 'Dark Skip', which allows them to skip all players' turns and discard their cards again...

The player with the previous turn issued 'Dark Draw 5', so he had to draw five cards from the deck.

On the dark side, draw cards and skip cards are more powerful than on the light side, which is a normal UNO, so the number of cards in your hand increases and decreases, and a more risky and radical game develops.

In the meantime, the player who had one more card left and declared 'Uno!' went up the next turn, and the winner was decided.

When I played it, the number of cards drawn on the light side and the dark side are very different, so there is a gradual change in the flow of the game between 'ordinary UNO that advances crisply' and 'dark side where the hand increases dramatically in a moment' I was able to enjoy a clear match.

Also, the most important feature of 'UNO FLIP' is that the contents of your hand will change completely when the light side and the dark side are converted by flip cards. As a result, when you say 'I don't have good cards in my hand, I'm in trouble', 'If I flip the cards over, all the cards were powerful!', so the flow of the game changes dramatically depending on the flip timing. I am.

On the other hand, an editorial staff who often plays UNO said, ``Since the number of cards in the hand does not change even if flip cards are issued, the impact on the game is surprisingly small and the basic parts are the same as ordinary UNO. It lacks novelty.' Also, in this play, because I adhered to the official rule that '

Do not overlap draws with draws ', the feeling of being 'playing together' and 'The previous person also has a draw card and flows There is also the aspect that the excitement in the waiting time such as 'I may come ...' has disappeared and the fun has been halved. Therefore, it may be possible to develop a more exciting game by enabling 'draw card stacking' or by incorporating local rules such as 'a player who gives a flip card can exchange his hand with his or her favorite player'.

UNO FLIP can be purchased at Amazon.co.jp, and the price is 1095 yen including tax at the time of article creation.
