At this point, it’s safe to say that Monopoly isn’t the only game that ruins friendships. UNO is one of those games through which people can express their evil nature with all of those +2 and +4 cards, making others suffer with a full stack of cards amounting to hundreds of points against the player.

So, UNO has recently reminded people on their Twitter about a rule that nearly everyone seems to ignore. And people weren’t all that happy about it.

Stacking +2 or +4 cards in UNO is the most popular as well as the most evil rule there is

Yesterday, UNO tweeted about one of the rules that many people seem to be ignoring—so much so that it has become an official-unofficial rule where everyone knows you can do it, though it’s not mentioned in the official rules.

The tweet read: “*Per management: You cannot STACK a +2 on a +2. Go ahead, roast us.” Where is Wendy’s when you need them?

However, the creators of UNO themselves have recently reminded people that such a move is actually illegal

You see, there is a strategy in UNO that if someone uses a Draw 2 or Draw 4 card against you, you can negate its effects on you by throwing down another Draw 2 or Draw 4 card on top of it and passing on the curse to the next person. Or, at least that’s how most of the world plays the game.

But then comes UNO with its official rules and spoils everyone’s fun by saying that such a move is illegal.

Sure, it does allow people to enjoy the game more without that sense of impending doom whenever you run out (or can’t get any) of the plus cards, but you also can’t dictate how to play the game if there are more enjoyable house rules. Let people be cruel to each other, UNO!

This isn’t the first time they did it though—last year they also said you can’t stack +2 on +4 cards

Believe it or not, this isn’t the first time UNO has said something about stacking. Last year, they tweeted “If someone puts down a +4 card, you must draw 4 and your turn is skipped. You can’t put down a +2 to make the next person Draw 6. We know you’ve tried it.” People didn’t like this rule either.

While some were happy with this rule as it was an honest pain to draw 10–20 cards at a time…

While there were people who agreed with this rule, many were against it, saying that the creators of UNO don’t understand the chaos that they are creating by stating such blasphemy. Another commenter also pointed out that it’s cute to see how people disagree with UNO on the rules of a game they created.

But, to sum up the general opinion of the majority of the comments, we could quote Twitter user JohnARoberts8, who put it best: “The rules of UNO will forever be debatable.”

… others were not so happy to hear about it and insisted on keeping the stack rule

UNO also answered many of the questions that arose because of this tweet. While some wanted to clarify all other draw card rules, which UNO did, others were simply complaining about it, but UNO took a strong stance and didn’t back down on its decision.

The tweet went viral soon after its posting with over 13,000 likes and 10,000 retweets and quoted tweets—this is besides making headlines online on various websites.

UNO themselves have answered many of the responses and questions regarding the rules
