Overview

This application is recommended for ages 8+.

The Basic rules of UNO and related card shedder games like Mau Mau, Crazy Eights, Switch and Black Jack extend to Wild Card. Wild Card has a fairly steep learning curve, and may be difficult for those who haven't played Uno or Crazy Eights. However, it can be a source of great fun and casual challenge once you get the hang of it.

Wild Card is a variation of the classic card game, Uno, with an added dimension coming from use of potent Special Action cards like the Quitter, Magic 5, Virus, Glasnost and Mutually Assured Destruction along with super-charged Wild Draw cards like Kadesumoro and Delayed Blast. With these, you can eject other players or even yourself from the game; force an opponent to show all the cards in their hand; 'infect' or be infected yourself with penalties; and see and strategize based on unique interactions between some cards. The app also allows you to customize your game by choosing anywhere from 5 to 15 cards to distribute to each player per hand, change the AI difficulty to your liking, set the game to all computer players and have fun with a deeper layer of strategy than other shedder games. Like Uno and other Crazy Eights cousins, Wild Card is a 4 player game.

The Basic rules of UNO and related card shedder games like Mau Mau, Crazy Eights, Switch and Black Jack extend to Wild Card. In a nut shell, each player, on his turn, must play either a Special Action card or a card whose color, symbol, or number matches the card on top of the Discard pile. If a Player does not have a suitable card, he must draw from the deck to retrieve a suitable card. House Rules also call for a player that cannot (or chooses not to) play any cards from his deck must draw until he finds one.

New Rules--According to Wild Card

- Instead of dealing seven cards, the dealer chooses five to fifteen cards to deal.
- Play goes to 1,000 points instead of 500
- There are a number of extra cards in the deck (as shown below)
- Wild Card can be played with either One or Two decks
- Players are allowed to stack Draw cards to avoid having to draw.
- Finally, if a player gets in their hand all four "Hazard Cards" -- the Quitter, Big Brother, Retaliation, and Holy Defender -- he is automatically the winner of the game.

    Great Game

    I love this game. It is so much fun. It takes several days to learn what the functions of all the cards are, just be patient it will come to you. (HINT: Use card info. a lot). I recommend this game for anyone who likes a challenge and does not mind taking some time in learning something new.
