If you're a fan of the popular card game Uno, then you will know that playing by the rules is a must. 

Not that we consider ourselves sticklers for the rules, but it's more fun when you follow the rules. Otherwise, what's the point?

In 2022, we heard Trevor Noah reveal on 'The Daily Show' that Uno revealed that you cannot stack a +2 or +4 card on top of another. Now, if you're a player, you will know that this came as a shock to many people. 

Mostly because stacking a +2 card or a +4 card on top of one another is what many players use as their gameplay to win in Uno. 

As per the official rule: "There is no stacking in UNO. When you play a Wild Draw 4, you choose the color and the next player must draw 4 cards and lose their turn. When you play a Draw 2 card, the next player must draw 2 cards and lose their turn." (Two Sticks and A Board)

Okay, we have no other option than to fold and accept their supposition. As much as this came as a shocker to us, it was what we read next that shocked us more.

According to Two Sticks and A Board, you can win using an action card.

"A Draw 2 card can be used as the last card in the game. You will win the game and your opponent will still have to draw 2 cards and skip their turn and continue the game." 

There you have it, straight from the Uno's mouth. We're not sure how you feel about it but it feels unnatural to us.
