Q: How many cards does each player get?
A: Seven (7)

Q: What do I do with the rest of the cards?
A: Place them face down in the center of the table and turn the top one over. This is the starting card or discard pile.

Q: So how do we start?
A: The first player (to dealer's left) must match the card visible with matching COLOR, NUMBER or WORD.

Q: I have no card matches, nothing to play from my cards.
A: You must draw A card from the face down pile. If you can play THAT card, you may otherwise it is the next person's turn.

Q: I don't have to draw cards until I get a play?
A: Do you want a hand of cards so big you can't hold them? NO. But you do have the option (house rules) to play that way if you decide BEFORE beginning to play.

Q: So, I have ONE card left after discarding my second to last one. Do I have to say UNO! before everybody else says I didn't say it fast enough?
A: I normally say it before I RELEASE the second to last card. Just as I am setting it on the pile I say "UNO."

This game can be varied however you choose but everyone must agree before playing. That is known as House Rules.
