The function of Action Cards

Note: Remember all the power cards can be only played on a matching color or on the same face card except wild. You can use a wild card anytime.

Light Side Cards

Draw One Card

Draw one is a powerful card, it has a direct impact on the opponents. If someone throws draw one that means the next player has to pick up 1 card from the draw pile and forfeit his/her turn.

Reverse Card

This card changes the direction of the turns. If turns are going clockwise then after placing the reverse card turn will go anti-clockwise.

Skip Card

Skip will skip the next player’s turn and he will play on their next turn until someone changes the direction or throw the skip card again 😜.

Wild Card

This card helps you to change the color on the board and this card can be used anytime and the player has to say which color they are changing. It’s a really helpful card and can change the game completely.

Wild Draw 2 Card

+2 wild card is the most powerful card on the light side of the game. If players throw this card then, first of all, he/she will decide the color and the next player has to pick up 2 cards from the draw pile and loses their turn. This card is only played if he/she doesn’t have any other card left to play.

However, If you suspect that a Wild Draw card has been played on you illegally (i.e. the player has a matching card), then you may challenge that player. The challenged player must show you (the challenger) their hand. If guilty, the challenged player must draw the 2 cards instead of you. However, if the challenged player is innocent, you must draw the 2 cards PLUS an additional 2 cards (4 total)!

Note
It is acceptable to play this card if you have a matching number or Action Cards. If you want to increase the difficulty of the game then you can but these rules otherwise it is fine to play wild card anytime.

Flip Card

By the name of this card, you got to know what this card meant. When you play this card, everything flips upside down (Light Side to the Dark Side ) or vice versa. Once the Flip card has been placed in the draw pile, flip the Discard Pile, the Draw Pile and everyone’s hands must flip to the other side.

Dark Side Cards

Draw 5 Card

When you play this card, the next player must draw five cards and miss their turn. This card may only be played on a matching color or on another Draw Five card.

Reverse Card

This card changes the direction of the turns. If turns are going clockwise then after placing the reverse card turn will go anti-clockwise.

Skip Everyone card

Now here is a twist, the dark side skip card skip’s everyone chance and the player who throws this card will play again.

Wild Card

This card helps you to change the color on the board and this card can be used anytime and the player has to say which color to they are changing. It’s a really helpful card and can change the game completely.

Wild Draw Color Card

This is a very interesting and new concept card. Wild draw color card, the next player has to pick up the cards from the draw pile until he/she gets the particular color from the draw pile and the player has to lose their turn. Color will be selected by the player who throws the card. This card is only played if he/she doesn’t have any other card left to play.

However, If you suspect that a Wild Draw Color card has been played on you illegally (i.e. the player has a matching card), then you may challenge that player. The challenged player must show you (the challenger) their hand. If guilty, the challenged player must draw the cards until they get the chosen color instead of you. However, if the challenged player is innocent, you must draw the cards until you get the chosen color PLUS an additional 2 cards!

Note
It is acceptable to play this card if you have a matching number or Action Cards. If you want to increase the difficulty of the game then you can add this rule otherwise it is fine to play wild cards anytime.

Dark Flip Card

When you play this card, everything flips upside down (Dark Side to Light Side ). Once the Flip card has been placed in the draw pile, flip the Discard Pile, the Draw Pile and everyone’s hands must flip to the other side.

But these are the most important rules to remember. Have fun and be sure to use strategy when playing – it can often mean the difference between winning and losing!
