Quick Take: Uno minus the skip, reverse, draw 2, and wild cards, replaced with math. Very basic math, you're only working with numbers 1-10. It's a neat concept but we wish there were more specialty cards to make things fun. Sleeping Queens incorporates the same basic math concept in game play but in a more engaging way.
How to Play: Win by getting the most points. Like regular Uno, you're trying to get rid of your hand of cards first and then you get to add up the points in your opponents hand and that's what you win for the round. Everyone starts with seven cards and there are two cards played face up on the table for you to play on. You can play on both cards on your turn (if you are able) and you must match the number and you get a bonus if you match the color. Once you have played on the cards, they are discarded and two new cards are dealt out for the next player to play on. If you have matched a card with both number and color you get to place a bonus card from your hand out by the two cards that are in play. You are also allowed to play two cards that add up to the number on a card, if you do this and if both match the color on the card you get a double color match bonus and you get to place an extra card down at the end of your turn and your opponents all draw one card. If you are unable to play on your turn you must draw a card. If you have exactly 2 cards left you must shout out "Dos!" before anyone else does or you draw two extra cards. Be the first to run out of cards and count up your points from your opponents hands. Official game rules say you play to 200. There are two specialty cards, the 2's are wild and are any color you want them to be and there are # cards that have a specific color but can be any number you want them to be.
Variations: I think it would be rare to play to 200, we just played rounds and didn't bother counting up points because my kids got demoralized pretty quickly.
