UNO, the interesting number card game, is a big favourite and people including children as well as adults enjoy playing it. However, quite often, there has been enough argument over the +2 action card and its consequences. Now now, if you have often been a part of such altercations involving the +2 card while playing the card game, you may or may not be delighted to know that UNO has clarified the rule. Read on.
WHAT IS UNO?
Originally developed by Merle Robbins in 1971 in Ohio, UNO is card game that has been popular across generations. It consists of number cards in different colours as well as action cards such as Wild, Draw Four, Skip, +2 and Reverse.
HOW TO PLAY UNO?
To play UNO, seven cards are dealt to every player and the game begins after a card from the remaining deck is flipped over. Now, you have to play one card matching the card laid out in colour, number or symbol. The game continues and every action card has a particular rule with it. The player who finishes his cards first, wins.
WHAT DOES THE +2 CARD SIGNIFY?
After you throw a +2 card, the next player has to pick up two cards. But often, players argue that the next player, instead of picking up two cards, can throw a +2 card over a +2 if he has one. Sorry folks, but that isn’t the rule.
WHAT DID UNO TWEET ABOUT THE +2 CARD?
UNO has clarified the official rule in a new post on Twitter with respect to the +2 card. “Per management, you cannot STACK a +2 on a +2. Go ahead, roast us,” UNO said in their post.
Okay, then. Here
Earlier today, the U.S. House Judiciary Antitrust Subcommittee completed its ongoing antitrust investigation into the practices of Apple, Facebook, Google, and Amazon, reaching the conclusion that the tech companies are the “kinds of monopolies” last seen in “the era of oil barons and railroad tycoons.”
Apple in a statement to MacRumors said that it strongly disagrees with the conclusions reached in the report in respect to Apple, and that Apple does not have dominant market share in categories where it does business.
We have always said that scrutiny is reasonable and appropriate but we vehemently disagree with the conclusions reached in this staff report with respect to Apple. Our company does not have a dominant market share in any category where we do business. From its beginnings 12 years ago with just 500 apps, we’ve built the App Store to be a safe and trusted place for users to discover and download apps and a supportive way for developers to create and sell apps globally. Hosting close to two million apps today, the App Store has delivered on that promise and met the highest standards for privacy, security and quality. The App Store has enabled new markets, new services and new products that were unimaginable a dozen years ago, and developers have been primary beneficiaries of this ecosystem. Last year in the United States alone, the App Store facilitated $138 billion in commerce with over 85% of that amount accruing solely to third-party developers. Apple’s commission rates are firmly in the mainstream of those charged by other app stores and gaming marketplaces. Competition drives innovation, and innovation has always defined us at Apple. We work tirelessly to deliver the best products to our customers, with safety and privacy at their core, and we will continue to do so.
