Uno is a classic, easy to play, family game and one that I have great memories of. Uno Attack takes things up a notch and puts a twist on a classic game. I loved my play experience and wouldn’t hesitate to play this version again!
Opening the packaging was easy for this game. Once I had it opened I had two packages of classic Uno cards and one Uno Attack machine. I also had to place 3 C batteries in the game unit to play.
The Playtime Experience
I had to reference the instruction to figure out how the game unit fit into my expectations with the Uno Attack game. Essentially it is classic Uno in many ways. Everyone gets 7 cards and has to discard on the pile by adding a card in the same color or number family. The goal is to discard all the cards in your hand and get to 500 points. The points are calculated by how many cards are the hands of your opponents. The game unit comes into play because if you cannot discard at your turn you have to press the button on the top. When you press the button, a bell sounds and sometimes there are no cards, some times you get a whole butt load.
Things I Liked
I really like the added suspense of the game unit. It’s like adding Russian roulette to the game play and it adds a whole new element of fun.
Things I Didn't Like
C batteries seem like a really strange requirement. I almost never have them in the house so it was a bummer that unboxing this toy became an errand.
Although the Uno Attack Game is recommended for players aged 7 and older, I don’t see any reason that a younger child couldn’t play this game effectively. As long as the understand the basic concept the game unit doesn’t add anything too complicated.
I really liked playing Uno Attack. I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase again or recommend to any family game arsenal. This game was a lot of fun and very enjoyable as well as reasonably priced so it gets a big thumbs up in my book!
