Four Colors, which is a variant of the classic card game Uno. In Four Colors, the objective is similar to Uno: players aim to be the first to get rid of all their cards.
To play Four Colors, you typically need a standard deck of 52 playing cards, excluding jokers. The game is usually played with two to four players, and the dealer distributes an equal number of cards to each player. The remaining cards are placed face-down as a draw pile, and the top card is turned face-up to start a discard pile.
The players take turns playing cards that match either the number or the suit of the card on the top of the discard pile. For example, if the top card is a 7 of hearts, a player can play any 7 or any heart card. If a player cannot play a matching card, they must draw cards from the draw pile until they find a playable card.
The game gets its name from the special "four colors" cards. These cards act as wild cards, and when played, the player specifies any suit, and the next player must follow that suit or play another four colors card to change the suit again. This adds a strategic element to the game, allowing players to influence the active suit and potentially disrupt their opponents' plans.
Additionally, similar to Uno, Four Colors may have special action cards that can affect gameplay. These may include skip cards that cause the next player to miss a turn, reverse cards that change the direction of play, or draw two cards that force the next player to draw additional cards.
The game continues until one player has played all their cards. At that point, the round ends, and the other players receive points based on the value of the cards remaining in their hands. The game is typically played over several rounds, and the player with the lowest score at the end is declared the winner.
