Do you know the true rules of Uno – especially when it comes to that magically draw four card? Ever heard of Draw Six?
A Facebook post has gone viral after asking, “Did y’all know that you can only play the Draw 4 Wild card IF you have NO other cards of the same color that can be played??!”
According to the official Uno rules, a Wild Draw Four acts just like the wild card except that the next player also has to draw four cards as well as forfeit his/her turn. With this card, you must have no other alternative cards to play that matches the color of the card previously played. If you play this card illegally, you may be challenged by the other player to show your hand to him/her. If guilty, you need to draw four cards. If not, the challenger needs to draw six cards instead.
However, a wild card, which represents all four colors, can be placed on any card. The player has to state which color it will represent for the next player. It can be played regardless of whether another card is available.
