Start by dealing 7 cards to each player and leave the rest in the card launcher (card spitting machine) as your draw pile. Put a card on top of the card launcher to start the discard pile. The first player should match the card in the discard pile by word, color or number. If nothing matches, the player must press the launcher button to get a card to add to his hand. Then the next player can play with the same procedure. The player with only one card left has to shout “Uno”. First player to have a score of 500 points is the winner.
