Are you ready for UNO? Roboto style?

By Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) at 6:53 PM
Family game night is a huge thing in our house, we try to play a game at least 3x's a week. Sometimes playing the same old games can get pretty boring though. Recently I was asked my Mom Central and UNO to try out a new game - UNO Roboto!

Anything that will mix up our usual game night routine I'm all for so I jumped at this fun blog tour.

The game is easy to use, and UNO Roboto guy helps to lead you through the start-up directions. To begin, each player (there can be between 2 – 6 players) is asked to record their names.

After that you can record a "house rule" which can be something silly like "stick our your tongue", or "stand on one foot". Bob (what we call our our robot) then tells you which player is first. Uno Roboto is like the UNO game you have always remembered. Each player puts a card down that matches the color or number of the discard pile. Bob (remember our robot's name) made the game fun because he would randomly call out that one player has to give another player all their blue cards or yellow cards, or tell one player to continue picking up cards until they reached a red card.


Our only "complaint" was that although the game was fun at first it became a bit confusing and we would always forget if we were suppose to be doing something or if we were now playing counter-clockwise.

We play with our UNO game almost every single night but most nights we do tend to leave Bob out of the game if we are looking to play a couple quick games before M has to go to bed.

If you want a fun game that the whole family can play then definitely check out UNO Roboto and check our their Facebook page for updates!

Disclosure: I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of UNO Roboto and received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.

Aw, Bob is sooo cute!  I wonder if there are different settings - like if there's an 'easier' setting for younger ones (i have  a 4 1/2 and almost 3 yr old) we do love Uno!

This totally makes me think of that song, LOL! This Uno game is so cute! I used to play Uno a lot when I was a kid, I wish we had something adorable like this back then!

Sounds like a fun way to mix things up when you have the time! We love Uno.

I've been interested in this game since I saw it on the shelf at Target a few weeks ago. My kiddos are too little for most games right now, but I LOVE UNO so I thought it would be fun for when they get a little older. 

Thanks for the information in the review! I think all kids are more excited when a game has an electronic aspect, and this one looks like fun! Hopefully I can get one in the after-Christmas clearance sales :)

We think UNO Roboto is really fun too, It can get a bit confusing though!
