Gameplay of This UNO Alternative for iPhone:
The gameplay of this UNO alternative for iPhone is quite similar to UNO card game. In beginning of the game, each of the player gets 7 cards to start with, and the remaining deck is placed at center. The aim of each player is to get rid of his 7 cards before anyone else. If he is able to do it, then he wins the game.
All the cards are of 4 color types: Black, Red, Blue, and White; with a number (o-9) written on them. At the start of the game, the very first card amongst the cards placed at center is displayed to you, while rest are inverted. The player with first turn has to throw one card from his set of 7 cards on the pile, but he can throw it only if he has a card with either same number or color as the one displayed on pile. If he doesn’t have any such card, then he has to pick any one card from the inverted cards and add it to his set of cards.
For example, if the card displayed on pile is of 5 number and White color, then you can throw one card from your set if and only if you have a card with either number 5 or White color. If you don’t have such card, then you will have to take one card from inverted cards pile at center.
In this way, the game continues until any one player throws his all 7 cards.
There are a few cards which you can use as power-ups to get rid of you cards, or increase the number of cards of your rivals. These cards are:
- Skip Card: This card is marked with a No Entry sign. If you will throw this card, then the turn of the next player will be skipped.
- Reverse: This card is marked with two arrows like icon. On throwing this card, the direction of playing game gets reversed.
- +2 Cards: This card is marked with +2 number. If you throw this card, then the player with the next turn has to pick two cards from the cards placed at center.
- Color Card: This card has all four colors printed on it. On throwing the card, you can choose any color for the next player to throw his card.
