UNO Cards Lightning Game is a speed cards game based on the popular UNO card game. Play it online free here!
To begin, click the Small, Medium, or Large link or Very Large button under the picture at left. This opens the game in a pop-up window.
The HTML5/Mobile version works on desktop computers and tablets. It is the same game.
Play against the computer to match your cards up or down depending on the arrows shown.
This game uses UNO-like cards, but it is not a regular UNO game. Instead, this is a speed cards game.
Your goal in this game is to get rid of your cards faster than the computer player.
HOW TO PLAY. Click the Start button on the game to begin. This game has two players, you versus the computer.
There are four discard piles in the middle of the screen. Your hand of cards is at the bottom of the screen. To get rid of a card, drag it from your hand to one of the discard piles.
An UNO card can only be moved if it matches the pattern in the discard pile. Each discard pile shows and Up arrow or a Down arrow underneath it, at any particular moment.
Drag a card from your hand to a discard pile that has a matching sequence. For example, if a discard pile has a 5 card with an Up arrow underneath it, then you can place any 6 card on top of that pile.
Similarly, if you see a 10 card with a Down arrow, then you can discard a 9 card on top of it.
The cards range from 1 to 13. To go up from 13, place a 1 card; to go down from a 1 card, discard a 13 card.
If the computer gets stuck and doesn't have a move, a red Flip Card will appear. Click that card to shuffle fresh cards onto the discard piles.
There are three types of "special" UNO cards in the deck. These cards are used differently than the other cards:
Wild Cards. These represent any card number. You can place these on any card in the discard piles. When this card is in a discard pile, any card can be discarded on this one.
Red Cards. This is a Reverse card. Playing this card reverses the direction of the arrow for that discard pile.
Lightning Cards. This is a Bonus card. When you play this card on top of another Lightning card, you get a bonus.
This is a timed game with multiple levels. You have 8 minutes to score high enough to proceed to the subsequent level.
