ONEthe card game that has tested friendships and sparked more than one argument at family gatherings, has a history as colorful as its cards. It was born in 1971, when Merle Robbins, a hairdresser from Ohio, decided that the rules of the card game Crazy Eights —crazy eights, a classic casino game— needed a touch-up. With that spark of ingenuity, Merle and his family developed UNO at their kitchen table, never imagining they were creating a worldwide phenomenon.

The goal of UNO is simple: get rid of all your cards before the other players. But the path to victory is filled with unexpected twists and bright colors. Special cards like “Reverse,” “Skip,” and the dreaded “+4” have left many wondering if the true purpose of the game is to win or just watch the world burn. Who hasn’t felt the chill when someone plays a “+4” just when you thought you were going to win!

Today, the game is found in nearly every home on the planet, with themed editions based on movies, television series, and even digital versions for online play.
