Uno Reverse Card

Uno Reverse Card Rules

An Uno deck has a Reverse card. Discover the rules of this card as well as its characteristics that differentiate it from other ones.

Reverse Card Rules

The general rule of the Reverse card is that it changes the direction of play once placed. If the direction of the game was moving clockwise, then it must now move counterclockwise and vice versa. The Reverse card can only be played on a card of the same color or another Reverse card. If it’s turned over at the start of play, then the dealer plays first, i.e. play moves to the right instead of the left.

The player who places the card does not play again.

When Uno is played with 2 players, the reverse card functions exactly as the Skip card, which means that the player who placed this card immediately plays again.

What is the Reverse Card?

The Reverse card displays two arrows pointing in opposite directions. An Uno deck contains 8 Reverse cards (2 of each color).

Alternate Rules

You can decide at the start of the game that the Reverse card will serve a different purpose, such as:

  • Allow the player who placed it to play 2 times

  • Pass the next player, possibly reversing the direction of play.

  • Have the Draw 2 or Wild Draw 4 cards to be drawn pass to the next player
