What do you get with UNO Flash? In the box you receive a complete deck of Uno cards (similar to most any other Uno game, the rule pamphlet, and the electronic Flash game unit.
How does UNO Flash work? In order to start the game, you turn the game unit on and select whether you want infinite, 6-second, or 4-second time limit set. Then each player is dealt 7 cards and they press and activate the red button that is closest to them (this will be their button throughout the game.) When players are ready, someone presses the small yellow Play/Pause button.
The first difference you will notice between UNO Flash and standard Uno is that the game unit will randomly select whose turn it is by sending the blinking red light to one player's button. Play will not go clockwise, but will randomly shuffle around the table. Occasionally a player will even get two turns in a row. After a player plays their card (obeying the standard color/number matching rules of standard Uno) they must tap their button in order to send the turn to the next player.
If you have set a time limit of 6 or 4 seconds, the players have only that many seconds to make their move and hit their button before the timer buzzes at them and they are forced to draw 2 cards. The one exception is that a player who is hit with a Wild Draw 4 can pause the game briefly to draw their cards and suffer no penalty.Read more ›
Now add in this UNO Flash Base. There are several small differences, but it definitely keeps to the tradition of the game. The biggest difference is the ability to make the game a little more fast-paced with a lighted count-down timer and lively tones while it does so. You can set the timer to four or six second intervals, or you can choose to turn the timer part altogether. This is wonderful because you get a lot of control over the speed of the game.
No matter what time interval you use, the next big difference is the fact that the UNO Flash Base tells you who is going to play next... it's not just clockwise anymore! You might even play twice in a row. When the light is on your spot, you play, you play quickly, and then you hit your button to beat the timer and send the spinner-light to the next player... which might be you again!
I like this because it takes away the animosity factor to the person who always plays before you. Not that anyone ever throws punches during these games, but when you see a card played, you can be hopeful that you're the next to play, thus whenever that person on the other side of you throws down the perfect card yet again, you feel competitional hope rather than, "oh, man, why didn't I sit next to her?"
This means that there are no "reverse" cards in the deck. Don't need 'em. It's built into the fun, flashy thing in the center. Younger players are definitely going to like this version better than the traditional version because it's more lively.Read more ›
This is a fun, fast paced game for those who enjoy Uno. I like the fact that you can disable the time limit. This is helpful when you are playing with small kids. Speaking of kids they love watching the lights flash. Anticipating who will be next in turn. Both our 5 year old and 8 year old ejoy playing Uno Flash. Definitely a keeper.

Everything seems to work. I would give it a higher rating but I have to wait until Christmas, when my daughters family actually gets to play with it.Published 12 months ago by cindy miner
