TL;DR – Turns out some of us might have been playing the card game wrong our entire life.
In case you haven’t heard, UNO has officially confirmed that you cannot stack +2 and +4 cards on top of each other.
Yes, let that sink in.
You cannot stack +2 or +4 cards together.
In a Twitter post, the card game company has confirmed that the move is illegal. And UNO knows that we’ve been playing it that way all our lives.

Apparently, if a player puts down a +4 card, the next player must collect four cards and skip their turn. Likewise, if a player puts down a +2 card, then the next player must collect two cards and skip their turn. Absolutely no stacking allowed.
So, if you been stacking +4 and +2 cards together to sabotage the next player in all your UNO games, just know that you are not supposed to do that.
Not taking this piece of information very well yet?
Well, you’re not alone. Check out the internet’s reactions below:
Some still in denial

Some felt cheated
have you ever felt the weight of 47 uno cards in your hand?
the haunting laughter of your peers?
the years of therapy that followed?

Some accuses UNO of not knowing how to play the game
That’s not even how Uno is played.
