Everyone has fond memories of playing Uno. If you didn't start a fight by whipping out a draw four just as someone was down to their last card, then you didn't really have a childhood. And we all remember the joy of catching someone out when they didn't exclaim "Uno!" while they held one lonely card in their hand. In short: it really is the game of champions.
It's also a game that Barbara is rather fond of, so it's dedicating an evening each month to Uno at its most competitive. A word of warning: this isn't for the faint of heart. Some folks take their Uno rather seriously, as you'll see from 7pm on Wednesday, February 27 — and on the last Thursday of each month afterwards.
So flex those fingers, prepare to show off your number- and colour-matching skills, and get geared up to sledge, taunt and distract your opponents. All's fair in love and Uno, after all. Bar prizes are on offer for player that emerges victorious. If someone brings a themed deck (and everything from N*Sync cards to a special Sydney 2000 Olympics version really do exist), then we think everyone will be a winner.
