Have you played UNO? We loved playing UNO with the kids as they were growing up and now we can play with their kids! Not only is UNO a fantastically fun game, it helps the kids with their colors, numbers, and following directions. I am all for the sneaky learning! In addition, they can be short games, which is great for smaller kids with shorter attention spans. In all honesty, that’s part of why I love it so much. I’m not a big fan of certain board games that are hard to finish because they are so long. Also, there aren’t a lot of little pieces to get lost! Did you know that UNO has been around for 40 years? That’s a milestone! To mark this landmark anniversary, this year Mattel has introduced a fun new way to play UNO.
We were given the opportunity to receive a UNO Roboto House Rules game to review through our affiliation with Mom Central. I decided Thanksgiving day would be a wonderful time to introduce the game to the family since so many of us would be together! UNO Roboto was a hit with the entire family! The new version combines the best of the original Uno, and then adds new fun elements, such as having a robot throw twists in the game!
During the game, UNO Roboto gives players random commands to act out. Telling them to switch cards or to perform the house rule. If you cannot come up with your own house rule, no worries, the game offers several suggestions. UNO Roboto is available at major retailers and at Mattel’s online shop! For under $30, it makes for a lively game night!
You never know what he's going to say next! Start by recording your names and your "House Rule." This quirky robot will call on you and your friends throughout the game, with surprising tasks and funny phrases! But the goal is still the same - be the first to get rid of all your cards!WATCH THE INTERACTIVE VIDEO

I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of UNO Roboto and received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
