Can’t find your old UNO card set? Was it chewed up by the dog? Worry not. You can now play UNO with your friends – or strangers around the globe – on Facebook!
Chinese video game company NetEase Games, and Mattel, the beloved toy and board-game company have announced that the UNO has now made it onto Facebook’s Instant Games. Previously only available on iOS and Android as a standalone app, the game can now be played on Facebook as well. The company behind its development is Mattel163, a joint venture between NetEase and Mattel, has a range of different “experiences” based on Mattel’s brands, lined up.
The UNO gaming experience on Facebook offers three styles of gaming: Quick Play allows you to play with the UNO rules you’re used to, 2v2 Mode lets you team up with a friend and play against two other players, and Room Mode lets you host a game room with up to eight players at a time. The two modes allow you to customise the game differently, according to your chosen rules.
Players of the offline card game will feel right at home, as it’s exactly what they would expect. No confusion here. However, UNO on Facebook is also a social game that allows interaction between players, no matter where they are in the world. It wouldn’t be complete without a way to share your results and send friend requests to other players.
Players of the iOS or Android versions of the game will also be getting an upgrade soon, with the Messenger version’s features coming to iOS and Android in the spring.
Facebook Messenger recently added its first Fantasy Sports game on Instant Games, bringing the number of titles on the platform to over 70. The company is working hard on increasing that number fast.
