BG Uno is a great free self-voicing version of the popular card game. Similar to Oh no, crazy eights or twos but played with it's own pack of 108 special cards, the pack contains four colour suits; red, green, blue and yellow, and cards with the numbers 0-9, plus several special action cards. Each player is dealt 7 cards, and the game's object is to be the first to get rid of all of them. To be discarded however, a card must Match the number or colour of the previous card. If a player cannot match a card, he/she must pick up a card from the pack, and if it cannot be immediately played, must add it to his/her hand.

things are made more interesting by special action cards such as skip, which forces the next player to miss a turn, wild, which allows a player to choose the colour for the next turn, reverse which reverses the order of play, and the dreaded draw two and wild draw four cards which force the next player to pick up more cards. Indeed, one particularly fun mechanic in Uno is countering a draw 2 or wild draw 4 card with one of your own, and thus having the next player along forced to pick up even more!

When a player is out of cards and wins the round, the other players must count up their score, and just as in hearts, the lowest scoring player when someone reaches 500 is the winner.

Of course, the game wouldn't be complete without the need to say "Uno, (one in Spanish or Italian), " when a player has one card left, and failing to do this will result in a penalty.

BG Uno simulates all the above rules, ---- even the saying Uno with a press of the enter key, and lets you play against three other computer opponents at various levels of skill, making this surprisingly simple game quite challenging on higher difficulty levels. The game is self voicing through Microsoft Sapi, has high contrast graphics and a maximise option, and all of the rest of the handy keyboard shortcuts and comprehensive options you'd expect from Spoonbill games, and is thus perfect for a brain resting half hour, and the chance to indulge your vindictive streak as you treat your fellow players to a card avalanche! .
