This game is basically Jenga shaped like a stump. I enjoy it with friends, but there is not much strategy at all. It’s about dexterity and basic tactics. You use the same tactics as you do in Jenga: either remove a piece, or make it difficult for the next person… or both. If you already have Jenga, I’m not sure you need this.

This game is great because you can play solo, cooperative to competitive. The components are high quality. The art is fun great and funny. The mechanics work great and fit the theme. I have trouble finding flaws.

This is a great family game. It’s like the reverse of Clue…or maybe the prequel, as you are trying to “Kill Doctor Lucky”. It’s great fun for all ages. I recommend it.

What’s wrong with all the stodgy gamers who hate on this game? I agree that Monopoly is pretty terrible, but Uno is classic fun the whole family can enjoy.

It’s cheap.

It’s easy to take on a trip.

You can get it anywhere.

Almost everyone knows how to play, and if they don’t, you tach them in 30 seconds or less.

It’s brainless, but there are tactical maneuvers. Reverse, reverse!

It’s nostalgiac. Come on! Who doesn’t have a good memory or two about this game?

Do I have to go over the rules? You try to get rid of your cards by throwing into the discard pile if you have a matching number or color. When you get down to one card, you are supposed to yell UNO before anyone else does. In the meantime you get to give people Draw 2 or the dreaded Draw 4 cards to make their life a living ****.

Awesome!
