In the game

According to the Uno rules and the Uno Attack rules, the Uno reverse card is a card that changes the direction of the game. In other words, the order of turns is reversed.

The Uno reverse card might look a bit different depending on your version of the game. However, the thing is certain, you will recognize it by seeing the two arrows going in the opposite direction. For example, this is how our own version of the Uno Minecraft reverse card looks like:

From the rulebook:

  • This card reverses the direction of play. Play to the left now passes to the right and vice versa.
  • If this card is turned up at the beginning of the play, the player to the right now plays first, and play then goes to the right instead of the left.
  • This card may only be played on a matching color or another reverse card.
