UNO Confirms You’ve Been Playing The Game Wrong Your Entire Life

If you’re one of those people that skim through the rules to a board game then add in a new rule or two of your own, the time has come when the gig is up.

UNO Confirms You’ve Been Playing The Game Wrong Your Entire Life and they are setting the record straight once and for all.

The official UNO Twitter account posted the other day confirming that confirmed that +4 or +2 cards cannot be stacked — at all.

UNO says:

“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. #UNO”

Yes, I know bummer and can totally put a damper on your winning streak.

If you’ve ever played UNO (and who hasn’t) you know that has been common practice to stack +4 and +2 cards.

So, the news hasn’t broken well with the internet.

In fact, people are flocking to social media to express their frustrations with the rule clarification including Foot Locker:

Whether you agree or not, UNO is now ruined for everyone. HA.

If a draw 4 is played, can you stack a draw 4 and make the next person pick up 8??

What if you're playing eith 2 people only? I put the 4+ and choose red.. which happens to be a red 2+..can I do that? Due to the fact that it's my turn again since there's just two of us.

@Jen, yes! That’s how we play too! And if u don’t have the card then u draw and next person goes. If u have to draw u don’t get to lay a card down. We have never tried stacking a draw 4 and draw 2 together that makes zero sense! Lol

+4 and +2 are not “alike” so who would stack them on each other anyway??? Now adding a +4 onto another +4 is ok and the same goes for stacking +2 on top of another +2.
